It's a new month at Gossamer Blue and a new selection of beautiful kits. I've been scrapbooking holiday photos! I have two pages today, with a third to come on the 15th for the Inspiration Blog Hop, and a post over on the Gossamer Blue blog at the end of the month.
The colours? This month it seems like every design team member found a favourite. There are blues, greens, pops of red, sunny yellows and pinks ..the full gallery is here
On my first page I layered up some journaling cards from the Project Life kit to document a dream. I love Norway so much I daydream about retiring there.
My second page is based on a sketch. This month the wonderful Becky Fleck over at PageMaps invited members of the Gossamer Blue team to scrap along to her sketches and this is what I came up with. Becky's sketches are always an inspiration - she includes photo sizes as a great jumping off point - and there are 12x12 and 8.5x11 maps to follow, with a downloadable pdf to print out and keep close at hand. What's not to love? Click here for the August maps They're well worth a look.
I'm keeping this sketch close by for the rest of the month. I think I'm going to use it again: the August kits are spread out on my desk and I still have some favourite "picks" to use up. The Fancy Pants letters in Add On 3. the October Afternoon Pillow Puffs in the Main kit, all the Project Life cards..
