Me? When Lori, the lovely owner of kit club Gossamer Blue, asked me if I'd like to make some pages for her with the June kits. I said Yes! Please! very quickly before she had a chance to change her mind
I've been a fan of the beautiful Gossamer Blue collections for a while now: not only the main monthly kit with its clever combinations of patterns and neutrals, but also the hard-to-pick-a-favourite add ons. They always seem to include my most used sorts of supplies: wood veneers, neat little stamps, stickers, alphas to turn to again and again. As soon as the postman placed the big Gossamer Blue box in my hot little hands I ran upstairs to start cutting and sticking.
I have two pages today..
..the first of six I have finished up from a mix of the kit selection for June. You can see the kits here. It's pretty obvious these layouts only scratch the surface of what there is to be made. What about those big alphas? and the flamingo? I had to get in on the flamingo thing. More to come!
For now, I have Squeeze The Day
which came about when I looked at the lemon printed paper in the Bits and Pieces kit. I've always liked the motto "Seize The Day", so I thought I'd combine it with that other good plan - making lemonade when life gives you lemons. Squeeze the Day, I say!
My other page uses the Perfect Day paper, which is a Gossamer Blue exclusive, in the Main Kit, for a layout about last Wednesday, when we had a couple of excellent visitors:
I just had to record how easy this little star was to entertain, because it turns out he loves pretty much all the same things my own big, grown up boy also enjoys. We have plenty of books about football and more than enough pens and paper for copying out the best bits!
Isn't that paper just..um, perfect?
I've had a wonderful time digging into the Gossamer Blue June kits. I'm pretty sure I have more pages to make! But for now, if you head over to the Gossamer Blue blog you'll find four more layouts and a little piece of me. There were questions...
