SSS May Kit

The new SSS card kit is out. Oh my. Look at all that lovely light blue + red + cream… and a touch of grey? OH yes. this I REALLY like…

And me being me… well…

I sat down to make a card and made a layout instead. A layout that took longer than my usual, puts to use the 6×6 paper in the kit, and that I’ve been meaning to make since February when this happened.

I’m glad to have gotten the details down, and had creative fun while doing it.

I used a circle die cut, some ink, and some old red letter stickers for my title, everything else is from the kit. All the banners, hearts – that’s all just kit paper cut up. The border on the far left is just 2 strips of the same paper lined up and overlapped so that it looks like one longer piece. Look close enough you can see where the edge is.

Miss E is fine now, by the way. She had a really scary bugĀ and they had her under observation for 4+ days until the fever stopped being an issue and lab tests were all cleared. On the second to last day we got the visit from this super sweet therapy dog – and of course I took photos (E asked me to). It was amazing how her color, mood, and energies improved during and after the visit. AMAZING.

Some of the stamps (the one above says “the very best” I just used part of it) were perfect for this page too. The colors really worked out well for what I wanted on the page as well and using bits & pieces (6×6) worked out great as well.

Overall another really fun & easy to use card kit from my friends at Simon Says Stamp!

Right now, (shhh, don’t tell) I’m working on a fall class for Big Picture Classes and it’s got a lot to do with kits and using them… so I’m enjoying some kit play myself. Hmm…. what will I make next? Stay tuned. Some big announcements coming very soon…

  1. Love the layout. Glad the therapy dog was there to brighten Miss E’s day. I remember when you tweeted about her hospital stay. I have picture of my “Spring Break” hospital stay from 10+ years ago I still need to scrap. Thanks for the reminder to get them done.

  2. I’ve not used kits yet but your blog posts about kits tempt me. I love the layout. The pictures convey such calm in a stressful situation. I’m glad it was just a temporary setback for Miss E.

  3. Can’t wait for my kit to come. Love your LO. Got all teary and everything. Really good job. Aren’t therapy dogs miraculous?

  4. What a gorgeous looking dog. And Miss E does look so happy to have his company. So glad she’s fully recovered with no long lasting results. Beautiful LO

  5. Beautiful layout! Love the papers, colors, stamps and your design is wonderful – especially love the banner stack. Miss E’s experience must have been quite the scare. Glad she is better.
