Little Black Dress and Cuttlebug #87

Another week is just flying by and I am wondering how it is Wednesday already! Two more days of school here and owen is so excited.

Make sure you check out the Little Black Dress Kit club for the new June Kit!!! I love love love love kits that mix and match different paper lines. If I wanted a whole line of the same stuff, I could buy it on my own, kwim? But having a bunch of different stuff all mixed up is my kinda kit so make sure you check it out!

Here is a mini album I created with June's kit. You will love love the corrugated cardboard.

I knew this mini would be a perfect fit for the Cuttlebug Challenge Blog # 87 challenge for paint. On the cover, I painted and used Glimmer mist {not included in the LBD kit}. Then I used my Cuttlebug and Spellbinders dies to make the scallop shapes and then ran them through my Cuttlebug again using the Houndstooh 37-1153 and Textile Texture 37-1153 folders.


The kit comes with this fun sheet from a Life's Little Instruction book so I based my theme of the book on it...



And check out the tab. I used my tab punch {I use this guy 24/7} on one of the vintage playing cards that comes in the kit and then ran it through my Cuttlebug with the Moraccan folder 37-1909.


Here are the inside pages. Lots of Kaisercraft papers and other fun goodies! And I used some of the paperbag for these flowers....again...Spellbinders and my Cuttlebug...


I {heart} these cork letters from the kit!!!!!!!!!!
