Altered Tin

In our house there always seems to be a mad rush to make a birthday card for one of the girls friends for a birthday party. And seeing as our house is a never ending source of paper supplies, I decided enough was enough and I had to do something about getting s system in place!
This is an old Making Memories tin that contained a mini album baby kit at one point in time and I figured it was the perfect place to house some homemade cards in case of those emergencies!

I removed the handle and spray painted the tin white and then proceeded to layer the Doodlebug papers around it. I then cut envelopes out on my Silhouette Cameo in the various do-ordinated double sided papers. Simple scored pieces of white card stock provided the basis for blank cards and then I added washi tape and other bits & pieces into the tin as well as some co-ordinated stickers I made so that the next time someone needs a card in a hurry, this little tin is there go-to place to create one quickly :)

Finally the complete Sweet Dreams layout

Here is the final Sweet Dreams layout! The kits were available in pink and blue in the same paper range by Studio Calico. I had so much fun creating this layout and all the little cut out details really looked awesome grouped together. I used a cuttlebug embossing plate to create the little baby grows and then cut them out by hand. The addition of dimensional glaze helps to highlight some of the elements like the hearts on the baby grows and the hearts in the circle cut outs.
I designed the other elements for the layout, moon, clouds, etc for my Silhouette Cameo but I can't figure out how to include the download from this post, so if you would like it, please email me: tracy@scrapkits.co.za and I'll happily email it to you :)

Limited Edition - Baby Layout

Over the years I've had so many requests for baby layouts, however because our subscribers are at different stages in their lives it's been the kind of layout that wouldn't suit everyone. The other thing of course is that I try and keep the monthly layouts as generic as possible so how do you choose whether to do pink or blue! It's just tricky.
SO with that in mind I've decided that from time to time I'll do a limited edition kit that won't form part of the normal subscription. These layouts will be available to anyone who wants to purchase them in the same format as Scrapkits layouts, however they will be more exclusive and I will only make up a limited number and when they're finished that's it!

This double page layout is R230 (incl P&P) & if you'd like to pre-order yours (either pink or blue) please email tracy@scrapkits.co.za

I'm currently still working on the double page layout but here is a little sneak peek :)
{This layout would look gorgeous in a double frame in a nursery!}

A work in progress :)
