You definitely won't want to miss the add-ons: the 'So Sweet' stamp is perfect for scrapbooking as well as dressing up your planner; the printables are fun and easy to use on any project and the cut files are a must-have for your cut-file library.
This month, I used the kit and all of the add-ons to create my two projects. First up, a layout, on which I used the 'So Sweet' stamp cross background to add a custom embossed and hand stitched background.
Supplies: June exclusive kit, 'So Sweet' stamp, 'Let's Eat' paper collection pack (the yellow paper is my favorite from the collection!)
I absolutely loved the predominance of blues, yellows and oranges in the kit this month and wanted to use them in this layout to highlight a recent photo of my daughter. After stamping and embossing the background crosses with white embossing powder, I hand stitched the same colors onto random crosses to give the layout more texture and visual interest. I love the result.
My next project was created so that you could see just how versatile ES kits and collections are. The 'because I love you' journaling card from the 'Good Times' printables gave me the idea to create a little honey gift set for a friend who has been wanting some of my favorite Texas wildflower honey!
To create the card, I used the yellow 4"x6" journaling card from the 'Good Times' printables as my card base, topped that with the cross background cut file, added a black and white ribbon and printed out the bee circle printable several times- I topped my ribbon with one, then cut the bees out of the two others to add to the yellow background. A few stamped bees from the 'So Sweet' stamp and some machine stitching finished it off.
On the honey bottle, I wanted to add a recipe for my favorite Pecan Honey Granola, so I cut out the adorable recipe card from the Let's Eat Best Ever paper, wrote out the recipe and simply stamped a bee and the 'so, so good' sentiment from the 'So Sweet' stamp set before adhering it to the bottle front.
On the top of the bottle, I added another bee circle. I then created my own tag using two tags from the 'Good Times' printables, and the same ribbon used on my coordinating card.
