August Crafty Peeps Card Kit Club



Jen Carter was in charge of our  Crafty Peeps Card Kit Club for August and she sent out a terrific kit, filled with my favourite things: My Mind's Eye patterned paper & enamel dots, wooden butterflies, lovely flower stamps and lots of fabulous diecuts. I ended up making five cards with the supplies she sent....

Jen had stamped and diecut a kraft cardstock panel, which I trimmed down and layered over some MME patterned paper. I added the diecut, twine and button to finish it off.

 

 I trimmed down the turquoise panel that Jen sent with the circle diecut out of it and layered it over some Crate Paper patterned paper. I cut apart the largest butterly  and tucked it behind the banner Jen had stamped, just so it seemed a little larger.



Jen had stamped the rustic cream diecut panel. I adhered it to a piece of grey card stock and added some  stamped die cuts, sequins and twine.


Jen had sent this pink impressed panel, which I didn't want to cover up. So I added a strip of cardstock, along with the "you" die cut Jen included in the kit. I added some of the stamped die cuts, along with a few of my own (using WPlus9 Fresh Cut Florals and dies) and a stamped sentiment from PTI's On the Farm.


And lastly, pairing some of my own MME patterned paper with Jen's supplies, I made this card:


If you like to check out what the other "crafty peeps" made using these supplies, here's a list of who's playing along:
