Do you GOGO?

Do you? I am and I m going to show what I did with their August Kits, yes I said kits and not kit as I do get a selection of the Create scrapbooking kit now which means I am trying my hardest to scrap as well as card make. And the first combo month worked well and i loved doing a layout, I dont scrap hardly at all which is so sad as I do take hundreds of photos that I do nothing with. So here it goes the apple of my eye featuring on my scrapbooking entry

Cute huh? This was made for my sister and BIL to record the buying of their first ever house in London and I used Luca for this as i didn't want just a picture of a house, so my journalling goes to read:

***Two days before this photo was taken mummy and daddy moved you into your very first home****

I adored the stamp in this kit in fact I adored the whole thing, the colours and the papers were divine but I did focused on the stamps because you know me stamps is what I like BEST!!! The bubbles stamp I have used to mimic the curves lines in the birdie paper( this was to die for, those little birdies are actually flocked, too cute!!!) the house stamp was used to replace the letter *O* and it houses the address. A few other elements were added all from the Create Kit and some tiny rub ons were used to decorate my journalling strips.

Now my cards

Sometimes simple is the hardest to achieve but this only took a few minutes. for this I ve used some of the stickers that come in the kit to simply spell the word HI, note the frilly ribbon? I know I ve promised to show you how is done and still haven't, I will show I promise!!! again...I put my cutting skills to the test with this next one, I have cut around the wine paper while one of the cards were layered with a button, those buttons were ballon shapes and I have sniped off the tail.

My third project were a birthday duo.

I used the stamp again to stamp the flowers onto shrink plastic and make a pair of earrings, i have coloured the flower heads with chalk inks before punching a hole and shrinking them.

I have also made a card to match again using my ink pads to watercolour the flower heads.

So all in all another fantastic kit from the GOGO HQ, love them and I will always love them!!!!!
