Colonnes de Buren {Paper Issues Kit}

Did you know that in addition to all the free cut files and all the latest and greatest scrapbooking supplies, Paper Issues also has a monthly kit? They actually have two kits--a full-blown kit and the "swag bag," which is like a mini kit with a delicious little taste of different scrappy supplies. I used the May Fishin' in the Dark kit along with a few things from my stash to create this layout:

Here are a few details. I have SO many stamps that I decided I need to start using them more, so I'm committing myself to use them on every page I make. That funny monster is a stamp by Carabelle Studios. The patterned papers, die cuts, acrylic stars and letter stickers all came in the kit.

Here's another shot with some of the cool Pinkfresh Studio die cuts in the kit. How cool is that clip stamp? I saw Julie Taylor use it on one of her pages, and when I couldn't find the stamp, she offered to stamp a bunch out on paper and send it to me. I love it so much! Thank you, Julie! xoxo

How awesome is this cut file? It's by Paper Issues and it's totally FREE! It's called Exclaim It! I've been dying to use it ever since I saw it, and it seemed perfect for the photograph I was scrapping. The arrow stamp is by Evalicious. The striped circle is a stamp by Denim Tampons, and the stamp underneath that striped circle is by Carabelle Studio.

I always use enamel dots when I need a little something extra, but this time, I went to my drawer that has the metal  dots I got from Joanne's. I was done with my page and decided I needed something else, and I thought my page needed some black ink. Hence the splattering mishap. If anyone could point me to a tutorial on how to make perfect splatters, I'd greatly appreciate it!

If you decide to get one of the kits, be sure to share your layout in the You've Got to Be Kittin' Me challenge, so you'll be entered in a chance to win a gift certificate to the shop, so you can buy another kit! Please use my code, Debbi (no e on the end) for 20% off your entire purchase.
