APRIl Kit of the Month: Stargazer

In Join Kit of the Month Club, Kit of the Month by Lynn Como

I’m happy to share the last Kit of the Month for the Seasonal Expressions 1: Stargazer.  This kit as well as Make Waves, Gimme Some Sugar and Chelsea Gardens … all RETIRE on April 30th or while supplies last.

A great way to share STARGAZER with you is to watch this video I created.  I give you ideas on what you can use it for; show you what is in the kit; some little details of  how I achieved a look … all visually shared so you can see.

Really think about the papers … and how you can use them beyond the spaceship theme.  But since we can start there …

  • Blast off :  great boy pages!  Playing videos, birthday party, enjoying a play date, or halloween costume.
  • Disney:  think beyond Mickey (or add your 3 circles), theme park, amusement rides and/or add your title to the pages/papers in the kit
  • Summer:  4th of July, summertime fun, summer camp, outdoor fun, starry night, boy scouts too.
  • Add black for Star wars or use the blue and grey …
  • Last weekend @ Serenity Crops, Carmen used the red/white/blue paper for winter shots of a boy playing in the snow
  • These Workshop Your Way kits have TONS of potential … you just have to look beyond the ‘themed paper’ and imagine a variety of layouts/themes/pages for your photos.

Love the fun and awesome BLAST OFF title of this layout.  I used our  Z3386  Alphabet Thin Cuts, but feel free to use a cricut cut or stamped title of font of your choice.  A 3×3 flip flap is used under the spaceship on Pg. 1 bottom left:

You can easily change the ONE OF A KIND (which is a chipboard title in the kit) to 4th of July or title of your choice.  Love the brightness of the layout with yellow, red, white and blue.  So many flip flap options in 4×6 and 3×3’s here.

I am so in love with this layout for SUMMERTIME fun!  Colorful, fanciful and showcases plenty of photos for your special day or summer adventure.  A 5×7 flip flap is showcased under SUMMER … love the #cool and #epic words included.  I add so much fun with the Z4148  PML Cards – Summertime to create along the bottom as photo opps or dovetailed:

The last two pages I created, I decided to design for summertime but in a different way. You can easily modify this layout to work with other titles.  I did use the  Z3329 Stars thin cuts   in a completely different way (watch the video) for the look below.  I do see summer camp, boys @ play, scouts, etc.  Perhaps you can think of a few others:

In addition, I used the 6×12 protector plus pages that would be inserted in between this layout:
