Get This Delivered to Your Front Porch

Would you just look at this gorgeous kit from Front Porch Kits?!  Who is in the mood to garden after seeing this glorious photo? You can still get this kit here.

Meanwhile, here are a couple of projects from me using this amazing kit. I have one more project planned for "Polly Pocket," the white pail you see in the photo. 

I guess it is possible to be tired of scrapping a particular subject matter as I feel a little weary right now, lol. The next strawberry season is only two months away and I know I will take just as many photos as last year, and the year before, and the year before the year before...  Jay asked me how many strawberry layouts I have done so far, in my head, I counted to 14 and several of them are 2-pagers!  oy vey...  so here is... another one... lol...



Here are a couple of close-ups.  I used the Maya Road chipboard to form the basis of my journaling. I like that quite a bit as I have found myself doing it on several projects.

Oh a real ruffled fabric edge on this layout from me :)  I don't think I'm all that adept with using fabrics, that's way too crafty for me!  I have tried to outsource this type of work to my parents, but alas, my requests were always met with disdain and rejection, lol.

Here is a spring card using this beautiful kit. To think I made this with snow on the ground outside, lol. These butterflies are diecut and included in the kit, fun stuff eh?



Well, that's about it for now and again, you can find this kit here!!  Thanks for visiting and have a good one wherever you are.  Me, I'm off to Body Pump :)

Gorgeous page and I always love seeing all your strawberry photos...they are adorable!

On a funny side-note...Bryn was looking at your blog with me when I opened it up and she saw the photo of the kit and said, "Whoa." I said, "What?" she said, "That's a little overdone.". I said, "That's not a layout, that's a kit." She said, "Oh, thank goodness." The girl cracks me up! LOL

Very sweet page, pun intended! Are those plants yours or did you go to a patch? If so, which one?

I love the use of the chipboard preserve jar for your journaling base! One strawberry layout complete 17 more to go for the season! Lol! At least you now have plenty more supplies to use on your gardening layouts! What a fun kit!

Looking forward to seeing what you do w the pail!

This kit looks VERY fun to play with! LOVE your strawberry layout--and, you know, if that is something you do a lot of as a family, well then you should have a lot of documentation on it :)

Fabric is new for me, too, but I'm loving it.

Cute, cute card, too--butterflies are my favorite :)

This is SO, SO pretty, Jing-Jing! I LOVE the beautiful colours on your layout. I am loving that pleated fabric on the side with the matching jar of jam. I love how you lined up all those strawberries and embellished wood buttons. Yummy!! The card is lovely, too - those kraft butterflies really pop against all those gorgeous papers! And if I asked my mom to sew on paper, she'd give me a look no one on this planet has seen before. LOL

Gaspegirl said...

That is a great kit and awesome work with it!! You make me want to get back into scrapping. I have been building up to starting to use up some of my stash... I think that a kit or two may be all I need to motivate me ;)

Nathalie said...

Tu as fait des merveilles avec ce kit Jing-Jing! J'aime beaucoup le côté "confiture maison" que donne ta page et ta carte est trés trés chouette~ à copier même! :D

PS: In France, French Toast is "pain perdu" or lost bread and is made more as a snack when you have old bread... I don't know if it originally from France or not...mmm... google might know!

Kim said...

I noticed just now you left a comment on my blog saying you had sent a message replying to my note. Unfortunately I never received it. We are having server problems in Argentina. Could you please try sending it again to my gmail address: helenlenoir@gmail.com
A million thanks!
