Today is a very exciting day indeed! It is the official launch day for My Paper Treehouse!I am thrilled to be a part of this exciting new venture and am looking forward to all of the inspiration, challenges and tutorials that are ahead! Come check out our blog to see what I mean.
I have to tell you that when I first opened up this kit I ooooed and ahhhhed over it. There is so much lovely goodness jam packed into this kit it is absolutely unbelievable!
There is tons of Jilly Bean Soup in this kit, as well as some Prima & Websters Pages. To see list of eveything in the kit & to check out of the the yummy add-on's click here. $5 from the purchase of every kit will go to Save the Children foundation, so you will bet getting scrapping goodies while doing something good. Get your while there are still some left. I am still having a wonderful time creating with this kit, and would like to share a couple of the layouts that I have made so far with you!
The picture I used on this layout is of me when I was a little girl. When I look at this photo I am reminded of the little girl I used to be. Even though I was small I had a very strong sense of self and had an intuitive knowledge of who I was. This layout is a personal reminder for me to always remember and hang onto the internal confidence I possessed even then.
I really wanted to emphasize the handmade touch to this layout, so I added stitching to the borders and stitched on the lovely lace that is included with the kit.
For this one I used some old photos of my son from almost 9 years ago. These photos were taken at his pre-school of him clutching his "bankie". He absolutely loved his blanket and would not sleep without it. We actually purchased a second blankie so that we could snatch the original to wash it! lol
I love the Jilly Bean Soup journaling spots and corrugated cardboard alphas! I sprayed the alphas with a bit of Tattered Angels "Glimmer Mist" then inked the edges before layering them onto the layout.
I used bits and pieces of the papers and embellishments that are included with this kit and still have TONS of product left over to create with! Stay tuned for more creations by me and the rest of the design team through over at MPTH this out the month as we share faith, inspiration, challenges and possibly a little RAK or two! ;-)
