My Scrapbook Nook June Kit

Just before we left on our short break the June Kit from My Scrapbook Nook was delivered. Unfortunately I had no time to create anything and when we got back I first had to finish my assignment for Scrapbookmagazine. Today I finally had time to dig into the kit. I created a card that is based on the card sketch I designed for the Nook. If you want to play along with my weekly card sketch challenges register yourself to the forum so you can post your entry in the gallery and in the sketch thread. We love to see fresh faces on the forum. For this card I used Lily Bee Design papers and alphabet stickers from the kit. I also used my new Gingham & Co stamps from Waltzingmouse Stamps. I used the reverse polka dot stamp and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. The coverage on the left isn't perfect, but it doesn't really bother me. I think it adds a kind of distressed look to the card.

And here's a sneak peek of the Nook's June Kit. It's filled with Lily Bee Design's Picket Fence collection. And of course the kit comes with embellishments such as alphabet stickers, flowers, wood cuts, ruffle trim, wooden spools and doilies. You can sign up for a minimum of 3 months, but if you get a year subscription you'll get the 13th kit for FREE.

I plan on making more cards with the kit this weekend. Monday is a public holiday here in the Netherlands, so I have plenty of time to be creative.

Enjoy your weekend!
