Simply Obsessed October Reveal

This months kit at Simply Obsessed is sooooo wonderful it is one of my favorite kits ever!  I am so excited to have been able to design with it.   Here is the kit and below that is my DT reveal...

 I was so excited about the kit I ordered all the add-ons too.  I wish that I could have each of you come to my home to see my reveal in person.  The pictures just dont do the layouts/products justice.  I retook the pictures so many times trying to get better ones that would show the details/colors better.  I still dont know how some of you get such great pictures of your layouts.  These are some of my favorite layouts that I have ever created.  So here they are.....

I loved the Cambridge line because it was just PERFECT for my photos from England.  Since I went to school there and visit friends a couple times a year I have a lot of photos.  In this layout I used a few transparencies of London that I had in my stash.  The transparency on the bottom I melted it slightly with the heat gun to give it some character.  I used the packaging for the  Bo-Bunny zipper embellishment to make the white tab with the date on it.
 I loved these pictures of us at Buckingham Palace this Easter.  I placed chipboard wings over the wings that were already printed on the paper to add dimension.  I also cut out the portion under the stars so that I could layer it on top of the other pattern papers.  It is hard to see but I knotted the lace on both ends.

I never use transparencies nor my alcohol inks I just dont know how to use them.  I wanted to try something different so I dug them out of my stash.  First I cut out the transparency then I dabbed on the alcohol inks.  I then melted the transparency with the heat gun, totally melting it through in two spots.  It was really hard to get a good picture of layout and I really want you to be able to see the texture. I alos used the rest of the Bo-Bunny packaging behind the transparency at the top.  This turned out to be one of my all time favorite layouts.
When I first saw the PP Old School paper I was reminded of being at the University and being a sister of the Alpha Chi Omega sorority.  Our colors were red and green so these papers were perfect.  I used the packaging from the add-on Old School fabric borders to mat one of the photos and
inbetween the notebook papers.
The picture of my daughter went great with kit... I loved the fall feeling!  Also the buttons we got in the kit were perfect for the title NUMBER ONE KIDDO.....
Last I used the kit to make a little gift set for my neighbor... I made a card, bookmark and coffee tag.
I hope you enjoy the kit as much as I do....
Good luck and happy scrapping!
