It's time for the Midnight Rooster November kit reveal and that means I can share my work with this month's kit. The entire kit was fabulous....the combination of patterned papers and embellishments were awesome to work with! This kit quickly became one of my favorite Midnight Rooster kits to date! I also got the add-on this month.
Here's my first layout...a 2-pager?! Yep (click on it to see larger)! I love the progression on this page that tells the story of our first trip to the apple orchard. Daddy and Nora worked together and Lily and I got in on the picking too! I pulled out patterned papers by Studio Calico, The Girls' Paperie, Jillibean Soup, American Crafts and Cosmo Cricket - all colors in the photos and created a border around the layout. I used an "apple" flashcard by K & Company from my stash on this layout. The wavy punch is EK Success.
Here's a close-up of the flash card with Martha Stewart twine wrapped around it. That gorgeous blue lace trim is in the kit as well as the Jenni Bowlin star sticker.
Another close-up of my title...I machine stitched across the alphabet stickers to ground my title.
For my next layout, I created another grid on the Studio Calico documentary patterned paper. I love these photos of the girls trying Iowa sweet corn for the first time. Lily especially loved it and got to where she was about eating the cob! :) I used a Fiskars postage stamp border punch on the American Crafts and Crate Paper patterned paper. The gorgeous yellow lace and the fork, spoon and knife stamp are all in the kit. I sprayed the Pink Paislee corner with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist and inked up the edges.
Here's a close-up of my title. The Studio Calico alphabet is in the kit and I pulled the black Basic Grey letters from my stash...had to play on the "corny" title, you know?! :)
I also got some use out of my Fiskars star punches on this layout. The little yellow fabric yo-yo is actually a pin in the kit that I removed.
For my final layout this month, I used the Fancy Pants patterned paper as a base and then went to town with my Martha Stewart maple leaf punch. This was the only photo we snapped of us all at Thanksgiving last year on the Cornell side so I wanted to be sure to scrap it. I tied the lace in a bow and used glue dots to adhere it as a border along my photo.
Yum! Love those leaves!
Here's a close-up of the texture from the ribbon...
And my title...I find that outlining the title with a journaling pen can really make it pop!
Here's my card for this month...had to get some more use out of the fun fork, spoon and knife stamp.
And now I've got a lovely mini kit to give away this month...
Leave me a comment and answer this question...
Besides the obvious (family, your home, etc), what is something simple that you are thankful for?
For example, I'm thankful for Raspberry Mochas at Starbucks and that lovely little break each day called "nap-time"! :) I'll draw a winner on Saturday. Thanks for checking out my work this month! :)
