So rounding off the layouts created from the lovely Jen at Wear Crafts, 12 Pledge's Kit for August 2014.

So with those one I scored a sheet of blue cardstock at 2 inches, 4 inches, 6 inches 8 inches and 12 inches both horizontally and vertically and then did a hand running stitch up and down these squares.  I then add the square cut out elements and inked them and then applied them haphazardly to the paper.

Photo from Flamborough Head beach.  The title strip, the piece of paper behind and the one along the bottom edge of the photo were simply the cut off strips of paper that give you the name of the paper etc, which in this case had a little bit of the design included on them.

Up close you can see the stitching and the inked edges slightly better

This was the final page I put together, I was tempted to go for the blocked rectangular layout that I have enjoyed over recently months, but again decided to mix it up.  Inked a blue cardstock sheet.  Overlaid the rectangles, added stitching and washy tape - the photo was as stated the world's best crab sandwich.

I stamped the word crab on one of the journal elements and low and behold, Jen must have known about the sandwich as there was a 'crab' piccie on one of the design cards which I cut out and mounted on foam dots!

All in all a fun layout to finish off this fabulous kit.  So for £5 I added a sheet of blue cardstock and a sheet of white, a bit of washi tape, couple of buttons, a bit of embroidery thread and a couple of doilies.  And managed, not one or two or three or even four layout but six in total.  As always a fabulous kit Jen - thank you!

Stitching, inking, washi, card element and some wood veneer punched stars!

So you'll be asking where to get this kit from - well head over to Jen's Wear Craft website

And did I mention the cost of the kit - £5 - that's right £5, fancy a few extras, Jen usually has some fab add on elements you can buy too - so what are you waiting for!

  3. A great value kit, well done for spreading it out so well :)

  4. 2 really fab layouts, and so very different from each other. I love the stitching and how you used the 'name strips' on the first LO and the overlaid cards and stamping on the second one. x

  5. Oooh, I love the graphs and the stitching. Beautiful layouts! xoxo
