|Burlap & Buttercups June Kit|
So I'm very happy to be back in the mix today and shopping my stash to make up a kit based on this lovely one from Burlap & Buttercups. Now, for me at least, there was a little too much pink in this kit - especially after my struggles to use up the pink in my April kit ... so I did what I'd done in February: looked at the essence ofthe original kit, and chose colours that suited me based on that!
I started with the floral paper and replaced it with a couple of florals from K&Co and then chose a few other papers and card to match. The original kit had a lot of ledger-type papers (some on the reverse sides of those shown) so I chose some papers from BG's Recess collection and threw them into the mix. Finally I needed a shaped piece and found one which toned well with some of the reds in the other papers - I may use it as a template first!!!

During the last two months I have been learning a LOT about printing out my own journalling cards, date stamps etc thanks to being a Hybrid Finalist in UKS's Scrap Factor Competition (still hanging in there, just!). I will certainly be adding a few hybrid elements in during my month's counterfeiting as I have become rather addicted to home made tickets, personalised bingo cards etc :D
I am really happy with my kit and have already started creating with it ... hope you have fun with yours!
