Itty Bitty Scrap Shack July Kit Reveal

I am so excited to reveal The July kit:
"Granny's Attic" featuring the 7 Gypsies "Nottinghill" Line!!
This kit is FABULOUS!!
I felt like a kid on Christmas morning when I got the kit in the mail
and opened it for the first time!
"OOOOOHHHHs" & "AAAAHHHHHs" were flying!

I have made 4 pages so far-
however 1 of them I am holding back until I reveal the
July Challenge on July 15th.
For now, you can see the other 3 pages-
I stuck mostly to the kit- there were so many goodies packed inside,
I really didn't need much else!

One thing I did add to almost every page was FABRIC!
This paper line just screams NOSTALGIA & VINTAGE to me-
and is paired perfectly with FABRIC & STITCHING!

"Ollie by the Sea"
I used "Bubble Wrap" stamping for the background on this,
and layered several different trims behind the picture.
I also used white paint for the frame around the picture and the paper.

items not in the kit: paint, ribbon, chipboard letters

"Jax Beach" (my hometown!)
This is actually a picture of me & my mom when I was a baby :)
I used fabric and stitching on here,
as well as Tim Hotlz distress ink on the tag.
I handmade the flower out of fabric and a vintage button.

items not in the kit: fabric, thread, button

"The Wild West"
This picture is so funny!!
My hubby & I went to St Augustine for Valentine's day in 2000,
and we got this picture made in one of the old time photo places.
I used FABRIC again on this page as well as Tim Holtz
distress ink on the sheet music and the ticket.

items not in the kit: ribbon, flower, brads & fabric

I still have SOOOO much left over-
I am sure I will be making several more pages from this kit.
I am really enjoying it!!!
Hurry over to Itty Bitty Scrap Shack today and get yours too!!
