Since the lovelieness arrived about a week & a half ago, I have made SEVEN layouts & a card. and i am not done, not at all! Like the lovely Lisa Dickinson says "this kit was a workhorse!"
i used both Napa Valley & Monterey here, I am IN LOVE with that exclusive SC paper. The colors of both kits really matched the photos so well, this is one of my current favorite pages. I used the Jett alpha set to stamp the "Amarillo" sub-title. (The actual title comes from "Amarillo By Morning" of corse, by George :) perfectly fitting!)
"Playboy Mansion" i used 99% Monterey here, everything excet the purple scallop border sticker is from the add-on kit. I know I'm a broken record with this, but i LOooOOoVVeee that "Restoration" line. It is so gorgeous!
"Romantic Lunch" yep. Napa + Monterey. More Crate "Restoration". love love love it! (FYI- J was STRESSED OUT bc he thought everyone would think that was HIS cosmo in the picture, hahahaha!)
"Balloon Glow" this was THE hardest page to photograph in the known universe. I snapped pictures for 20 mins and I'm still not thrilled with any of them. The photos are (obvs) mostly black since they are night shots of a field of illuminated hot air balloons. This was the first page i did from the kit, the second I saw the Mix & Mend & that graphic Marjolaine PP, i had "The Vision" for this page. This Napa + Monterey again and i used a Studio Calico hot air balloon rub-on right smack in the middle!
"My Beautiful BFF's" yep. Napa, Monterey, Happy Leigh :) can we talk about the Walker Pharmacy stamp? bc i FREAKIN LOVE IT. i'ts perfect and i'm going to use it so many times you guys will be begging me to give it a rest ;)
just a fun card for one of my besties, using the kits :) i actually just mailed it this am so i hope she doesnt see this before she gets it, haha!
"Hot to Trot" this page is a Studio Calico mashup. Background paper is from the Joyland kit, blue cardstock + rose baubles from Napa Valley, orange PP + green Thickers from Monterey, and a random bit of SC cuteness up top. love how it turned out!
and with that, WHEW thats all for now! :) i still have plenty of goodies leftover and a TON of ideas (and new Jenni Bowlin inks & paints to play with!) so expect a "Napa Valley Part 2" post soon!
thanks for looking & reading!
