I had so much fun with the May Project kit, and I was SO excited when Abby Setti sent me pictures of her completed album! ! She did this for her son and I LOVE how it turned out! Love her take on it.. and all the fun techniques she used! I love how the main cover page is all inked with the texture stamp from that month's kit. Wonderful job girl! I am SURE your son will appreciate this for years to come! Look at all the meaningful journaling he has to read! YOU ROCK!



Wati Basri sent this layout all about her shoes! I LOVE it! I love the freestyle feeling of this layout and how easily it all comes together! Love the use of color photos with black and white.. what a fun look! Thanks so much for sharing it girl!



Okay, here is another ADORABLE mini album made using the Main kit from June! Laura Buckingham is the mastermind behind this cute little thing!  Seriously I LOVE the new passport line from Making Memories. because look at how versatile it is! These fun vintage photos are just PERFECT for this paper.. and I Love how easy this and simply Laura's concept is! What an adorable keepsake!  I even love the little detail she added to the page clip! so cute! (and aren't Laura's nails so nice too! LOL.. seriously.. if you saw mine.. .. so jealous girl!)


 August IS FULL of warm bright colors.. as we are starting to move into the end of summer and beginning of fall. I saw this new paper from Tinkering Ink and while it's bright and colorful with big bold designs on one side, the opposite sides have smaller prints with the same fun color scheme! I was also able to find some brand new papers from American Crafts that fit right in plus a few others new papers from Luxe.. to make this the perfect, end to summer kit!

I have to say.. THIS stamp is probably one of my
FAVORITE stamps EVER! I kind of goes with the summer/butterfly designs in the papers and is a perfect title stamp! You are going to LOVE the goodies we have rounded up for this kit. Brand new embellishments from CHA.. (more peeks to come on those!).. PLUS we have really worked hard this month to find a lot of fun "this and that" products like vintage flower buttons and more! If you have ever thought about joining the Scarlet Lime.. now is the time! We have some fun things planned for the upcoming months, .. that you won't want to miss out on! :)
