July at Gotta Craft

Today I get to show you what I made with the July kit from Gotta Craft. Odds & Ends from Cosmo Cricket? Gorgeous!

First I did a layout about a bit of kitchen accessory shopping:

Red letters and numbers and blue doily cut with Paper Reverie Slice card. Button and cream alphas included in the kit
then I kept on cutting out those paper dolls so that I could make some tags:

Ribbons from my stash
and then I made a card

Twine, papers and cardstock from the kit. "Cherish" cut with Paper Reverie Slice card
or two

Leaves from the kit
I have lots left and I'm hoping to get stuck in again soon. I might even be ordering seconds...

oh my, how lucky is Uncle Dave to have you to style for him! Just lovely, Sian, all of it - sigh! So reminds me of kitchens when I was little. I'm off to find a gingham pinny ...

What a great kit! I love all the creations---the cards are simply stunning. I love the burlap leaves on the last one. But what I really want is that retro kitchen scale in bright red! (Even though I have no place to showcase it!)

Clair said...

Oh Sian. I am loving your cards - and to think you didn't like making them at first! Your retro layout is also super cute. You have a knack of making really different kits work with your own style x
