quick, run...don't walk!

OK seriously! If I were you, I'd run and grab one of the June kits by Jenni Bowlin. This one is my favorite kit of hers to date. EVER. Love it!!

In this kit is the brand new PLAY DATE line of 12 x 12" papers by Jenni Bowlin and the mini papers from this collection...also an exclusive paper, exclusive yellow sticker letters (yellow is so hot), and an exclusive die cut star that were made just for this kit, along with lots more.

The kits go up for sale today here. So far I've done a few cards.

On the first card, I used one of the mini papers, the star die cut and printed the saying at the top with my computer. I used the back of some of the Jenni Bowlin Core' dinations cardstock for a "debossed" look. (The cardstock isn't in the kit or the red button, but everything else is.)





















Next, I really adored that big yellow butterfly rub on in the kit, so I decided to make a card out of it. I applied it to a folded piece of transparency and then cut around it for a butterfly shape, making sure to leave the top of the wings on the fold, so I don't cut the card apart.
Then I added a piece of the die cut paper edge on the inside of the card and layered 2 butterfly stickers. I thought it would be a fun birthday card. You can add as many banner stickers as you need to spell out the age of the recipient. (Big red button not in kit.)
I really wanted to use one of the new Play Date journaling cards on a card, so again on this next card, I used a folded transparency, added a doily from my stash and then the journaling card over the top. The little family ticket prompted me to add a little "family" of butterflies! :)


Love these gems from the kit, so I added one to the ribbon with a glue dot.
Another journaling card used here. I thought the numbers one would be perfect for a birthday card. Isn't that bulls-eye paper fun? Gosh that would be fun on a page about my favorite store. Target! Or perfect for boy pages of all kinds!

The alpha stamps are from my stash and they are EK Success - I purchased them here.

Visit the gallery for more ideas with the kit! And on the 10th, we'll have more projects with the kit to show you then also.

Danielle, please tell me what adhesive you use on the transparencies....I always see my adhesive!! Thanks Jan

Danielle said...

Thanks, ladies! Jan, I just used glue dots on these! I do have a vellum adhesive, I should try that one on my transparent cards sometime. I think that would work pretty well.
