Here are my pages I made for Work in Progress

I just loved the March kits I got to play with as a guest designer for Work in Progress this month. Trish puts together such a fun mix of products in her kits! In my last post, I posted some detail shots.

My biggest scrappy wish is to get on a design team for a kit club, so this was a great beginning to realizing that wish!

So here are my layouts I made with the March Work in Progress kits.

So, ever since the big snowstorm, when I was buried inside my house for a week, I've been obsessed with tea. I discovered this cool site, 52 Teas, which invents a brand-new flavor every week. Really interesting flavors like coconut cream pie (my fave so far) and buttered cinnamon raisin toast. I made this page for our current challenge over at How Much Is Too Much?

It was really fun trying to figure out what stories I would tell using the products from this kit. The Cosmo Cricket Garden Variety from the March Project Kit was a perfect opportunity to scrap about my foray into growing tomatoes on my deck last summer. I just love those Jenni Bowlin banner stickers that came with the kit. I mounted them on brown cardtock and strung them on the baker's twine that came in the kit and added some brads in between the little pennants. I made the scalloped border at the top by punching circles from the "Sunday Picnic" paper and added brads between the circles.
For this page, I used a little bit from the main kit, the project kit, and the add-on. I love the doilies that Trish included in the kit. And how fun that I discovered the sticker that says "A work in progress" on my 7Gypsies "D is for Diet" sticker sheet! The leaves and flowers are from the "Strawberry Fields" paper from the Cosmo Cricket Garden Variety collection. I omitted the strawberries and added some jewels to the flower centers.

This page is a remake of a layout I did a couple of years ago. I love my journaling (even though I later discovered a typo), but I never liked the way that old page looked. The WIP kit had the perfect colors to go with this old photo of me and my sisters from back in the early 1970's. Isn't that Cosmo Cricket chipboard chick the cutest?

Finally, I made this page for Sketch This. I wound up adding a few more details to this page after I sent it to Janelle. I just love the new Birds on a Wire edge punch by Martha Stewart.
