I {heart} Scrappy Canary ...

ETA. Playing along with the Moxie Fab World Clicking Cameras Challenge!

I applied late last year to be part of the Polly!Scrap Kits card design team, although Ruth decided not to go ahead with a Card Designer on the DT, she asked if I'd like to join in the fun as a Guest Designer for July, and I jumped at the chance!  In the meantime Polly!Scrap Kits has evolved into Scrappy Canary, with Mandy, still the same fabulous Australian kit club, now with a new name.

There is a monthly kit released on the 15th of each month, and Scrappy Canary often include exclusive products like stamps, letterpress or wood veneers. The June Pocket kit - Tea and Toast, was no exception with a gorgeous scripty sentiment exclusive from Wilna Furstenburg.

The Scrappy Canary blog is here and the store re-opens on the 15th of July, with the VIP Lounge open 24/7.

I was only asked to do two projects, but I had so many fabulous ideas working with this kit, I couldn't help myself! To demonstrate the amazing versatility of Scrappy Canary kits, I created a total of two 12x12 layouts and 6 cards with the June Pocket kit - Tea and Toast, and there is still spare! I loved this kit so much especially the exclusive acrylic sentiment from Wilna Furstenburg, so much fun!

First up a more feminine layout and card!

Inspiration for this layout from Sketchabilities
The 6x6 MME Papers and 6x4 pocket cards were perfect for layering behind my photo, with the 3x4 pocket cards perfect for the offset cluster. I fussy cut the title from one of the 6x4 pocket cards, used some of the pocket cards to back the Jilly Bean camera outline, added the cute "Love You" puffy sticker, cork arrows and fussy cut the polaroid camera to add to my clusters, and little white hearts to add to my title. The base layer black cardstock and 12x12 Pink Paislee Color Wash paper are the only items not from the Scrappy Canary Tea and Toast pocket kit. 

"Birthday Note" This card is one of my favourite, created by stamping and fussy cutting one of the 3x4 pocket cards with this cute butterfly from Altenew, layered on one of the 6x6 MME Wood Necessities sheets, together with "Note" cut from another of the kit pocket cards and "Birthday" sentiment from Walter and Winnie. All papers are from the Scrappy Canary Tea and Toast pocket kit. 

If you want to see my other 5 cards and layout you'll need to scoot on over to the Scrappy Canary blog next week, or you can hop on by and take a look at the fabulous challenges they have on right now...
