*First of all, let me start by saying thank you to all of our followers and for those of you that like to stop by now and then to see what us girls have been creating, but with those words, we here at S.O.U.S have come to the hardest decision of making this month our last month for challenges..
Leah and I have been keep up with this amazing blog for 5.5 yrs... We have absolutely loved sharing our joy of creating with you and have loved seeing what you have created with our inspiring design team.. We have made lots of new friends in the last 5.5 yrs and we know its hard to say good bye..  But not just yet, we still have this whole month to share fun challenges with you..

I want to thank each and every one of you who have stopped by to be inspired by Nanne, Leah and my fellow design team members during the past years of S.O.U.S..

Now, on to this week's sketch and layout, here's a reminder of the sketch we're working with this week:

and here's my layout:

I had the hardest time choosing the patterned papers for this, I loooooooove patterned paper! I narrowed down my choices to the Crate Paper DIY Shop line and placed them on an angle.

I then used stickers from the same line to created the banner, title and embellishment clusters.

I finished off the layout with Prima flowers from my stash and glitter brads to hold them in place, creating a visual triangle to lead the eye through the layout.

I hope you've enjoyed my version of this week's sketch, please go the original post at SOUS to find the linky to link up your take on this sketch.

Thanks so very much for stopping by!

Scrap Shotz May Kit Projects Reveal

Hello Everyone!!

Sorry for taking so long to post my kit projects, I've been running behind so I appreciate your patience and understanding :) .

The May kit features the fun and colourful "Rise and Shine" line by Amy Tan. So many great patterns in this, it was lots of fun to create with it and here are my creations :)  :

Yes "smitten" is a Thicker word not individual alphas, makes it sooo much easier to use for a title!

This layout showcases the varied "embellishments" in the kit, chipboard, die cut plastic arrows, remarks alphas, clear stickers and nailhead.

This is my favorite layout of this month's kit, I used the MFT circle stitched dies to cut the circles and then backed them with the kit patterned paper, a few chipboard hearts and kit nailheads finisched this off!
This great kit patterned paper shows off these everyday photos, add a few pieces of kit chipboard and nailheads and a lovely and fast to finish layout is done!

This is our kit sketch layout for May and I pretty much kept exactly to the sketch as I loved it in its original form!! I cut those circles out of kit patterned paper.

The kit included a lovely foil patterned paper and I chose to fussy cut the envelopes from the paper and use them to create these notecards which are also stamped with the kit "hello" stamp.

This card was so easy to create using the kit alphas and stickers, the flower was accented with a kit nailhead...done in 5 minutes :) .

I am a huge fan of woodgrain paper so of course I was looking forward to using this! 
The photo frame is a sticker frame which I placed on white cardstock and then cut around the corners to fit my photo within. The embellishments are stickers, chipboard, nailheads and patterned paper. 

I love this patterned paper that has been embellished with the kit nailheads, I fussy cut portions of it for a layout you've seen earlier. The sentiment is an Elizabeth Crafts peel off words...I use them so much, they are a super go to, no fail card sentiment!

Thanks for stopping in to see my kit projects. You are more than welcome to come on over to the Scrap Shotz forum and chat or play along with our DT Challenges!!
