August promess to be Yummy!!!

I am a very lucky girl as I have received this little beauty from Scrapagogo:

Yes it is the August kit that is due to be dispatched on the 15th of August!!!
And let me tell you that it is a gorgeous collection of eye-catching yumminess!!! You can find more details here.

I have been able to play around with it over the last weekend and have already created four LO that you can see in the Scrapagogo design team Gallery. All the LO from the DT girls are awesome!

So I wanted to share with you the first LO I made for the team:

I used a photo of my Grand-parents with their children (my dad is n°8!!!) which I adore!
I love all the elements from this kit! I used the ribbons, stickers, journaling tag and brads from the Go to Pieces add on which is full to the brim! I am in love with this patterned paper! Isn't it gorgeous! You can get so many different effects and vibes from this kit that I could honestly keep playing with it and still get a totally different LO in the end!

Here are a few close ups:


Do you want to know how to create those lovely blooms?
Here is how:

1: Cut/ punch out a 1" circle and make a hole in the centre for your brad. 
2: Cut the threads along the ribbon which are between the laced "circles". Be careful not to cut the thicker side of the ribbon. 
3: Place some thin sticky tape along the thicker side of the ribbon. 
4: Place it on the circle starting by the outside going toward the centre of the circle. 
5: Continue until the whole circle is covered. 
6: Place one of the Go To Pieces brads and fluff it up. There you go, you have a sweet little flower!

So I hope that I have inspired you and that my first LO for Scrapagogo! There will so many more to come!!!

See you all soon!
