Here is what all came in the Good Life Brag Book Paper Pumpkin Kit. Look at all those goodies!!! This is an album kit but you wouldn't need to create as a scrapbook album there is a lot of different things you could do with it! You could change it into a journal to record your thoughts or create sketches for cards, add color samples for card ideas or you can create it for a gift for a loved one with out adding the pictures. There are a lot of possibilities with this kit!! The little two stamps that came with it are awesome!! Ok onto what I am doing with mine :) I've decided to turn mine into a mini album of some of my favorite moments from this year so far!! Below is the cover I created.
In the kit there is two chipboard pieces for the covers. I decided to step them up by adding some card stock to them. The card stock didn't come in the kit. I cut a piece of Smoky Slate card stock. I took the stamp from the Good Life kit; inked in Basic Black and stamped onto the Smoky Slate card stock. I glued it to the chipboard cover. I cut a piece of Pool Party card stock and attached to the Smoky Slate card stock. The kit came with some fun designer series paper. I cut two different patterns and attached to the Pool Party card stock. I cut a piece of Crushed Curry card stock and ran it through the Big Shot with the Houndstooth Embossing Folder. I glued the Crushed Curry card stock to the center of the cover. I then wrapped some Calypso Coral Baker's Twine around the cover to step it up notch. The kit comes with some really fun embellishments that are adhesive!! I cut one of the paper embellishments in half and attached it to the Crushed Curry card stock on the right side. I took one of the other paper embellishments and using the Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker I wrote my title on it. At the bottom there was already a little saying printed on it that fit perfect with my title! I then added some Rhinestone Basic Jewels to it to step it up again. I attached it to the Crushed Curry card stock with Stampin' Dimensionals.
Tip~ Add dimensional to your project by popping up one item with Stampin' Dimensionals.
I then added one of the buttons that came in the kit. To finish it I added a double Calypso Coral Baker's Twine Bow. I punched the holes on the left where they were on the Chipboard already.
On the inside cover I turned it into an area to add another picture. I have a lot of stuff I want to added to this book :) This is a picture of me and my husband. I cut another piece of Smoky Slate card stock. I cut a piece of Pool Party card stock. I took the stamp from the Good Life Kit; inked in Pool Party and stamped onto the Pool Party card stock on the right side only. I glued the Pool Party card stock to the Smoky Slate card stock. I cut two different patterns of the Designer Paper that came in the kit and attached to the Pool Party card stock. I then slid it in under the Calypso Coral Baker's Twine that was wrapped around from the front and glued the Smoky Slate card stock to the chipboard. I punched the holes out. I attached my picture with Stampin' Dimensionals. I then add some more of those fun adhesive embellishments to the bottom right corner. They say this is us and photo love. I then stepped it up by adding some Rhinestone Basic Jewels on the right side.
See how easy it is? Anyone can scrapbook!!
