Hey y’all it’s Casharina bringing you another wonderful Product Spotlight!! I just LOVE putting these together because it helps me focus on the various Shabby Shoppe kits I have in my stash. I love pulling out kits I haven’t used in awhile, and most of all I love to see how others use the same kits to make beautiful layouts which inspire me to try new things in my scrap layouts! Today is no different! I’m focusing on the beautiful Summer Cottage kit and its lovely sidekick Summer Cottage Seasonal Additions.
These two when combined create some of my favorite layouts. I have used the Summer Cottage Seasonal Additions to add elements to so many of my layouts it’s hard to count! I love the ribbons, the tape, the stickers, the clothes pins and I especially love the glitter! ;) Okay so I believe this is one of my favorite kits from the Shoppe!! I love the earthy blue and tan tones in Summer Cottage; it makes for charming beach layouts, summer day layouts and even fun Fourth of July layouts. There are so many ways to use this kit the results are endless, so to give a better idea, the shabby artists have created a few layouts to give you some inspiration. For starters I created two layouts using this kit, and its sidekick ;)
For my layouts I wanted to focus on the eye-catching papers. I love how the papers are so neutral yet so bold. This kit works so wonderfully with a variety of other kits, as you can see in the second layout below, where I’ve added pieces from Hopscotch and a few others.
Rosy has given us yet another sweet piece of inspiration showing her skills at clustering. You can see here the rustic wooden frame from the kit has been used to bring focus to her beautiful little girl and I just adore how the paper pieces are pieced together to form a quilt like pattern. And from Kylie, as usual, a BEAUTIFUL layout. I love how she too has used the frames and mixed in the large circles…so pretty!
Jenelle has created two, unique 3×4 project life cards to include in her album. I love the simplicity of these cards and the word art and stickers are just perfect!
Kim has also created two inspiring layouts showing just how versatile these kits can be. I love the way that she has used the stars to “cut out” a ribbon from the blue paper, such a great idea. Her second page shows how easily this kit can lend itself to pool photos and so much more. Don’t you just love the waves made from the stitches, they’re just so cute, I would have never thought to have done that. That’s what I love so much about these kinds of post and our awesome gallery here at the Shabby Shoppe!!
Thanks for reading, catch up with us again on Thursday when SP brings you her projectSCRAP check-in for June!
