I think we live far enough from the water to have any real damage & live in an apartment so don't really have to worry. I wouldn't mind my store being closed though...but that's wishful thinking because it never closes! I'm looking forward to it cooling down a little- we also had an Air Quality Alert for today, which means that the ground level ozone was exceeding unhealthy standards; we spent the whole day inside, Cinnamon didn't even get to go on his walks.
He actually spent most of the day sleeping & so did Jose. I was working on a Halloween mini book that I want to enter in a challenge at The Studio. I got most of it done, just need to add some finishing touches & I'll be able to link it up tomorrow, just in time for the deadline! But more on that another day...tonight I wanted to share a set of cards I made from the Making Memories Passport Page Kit. I picked this up on sale at Target a while back & I've been hoarding it ever since! I've never used just items form the same collection but I thought it would be a fun challenge for myself to see if I could make 4 different cards (& not only travel based ones). This kit turned out to be pretty versatile. Here's what I came up with:
I decided I did need to do some kind of travel card & I thought a 'happy honeymoon' card would be cute. Wedding cards are so overrated. ;) The tag was actually a sticker which I stuck down on some cardstock & then cut out so that I would use foam dots to attach it. I also tried to do a little cluster with some other stickers & the flower.
This one is my favorite of the four. I'm starting to really like using flowers on cards & layouts!
I liked that the colors in this collection were soft enough to use on a baby card, though I'm not totally happy with how it turned out.
Lastly I made this simple thank you card. I tried to do some layering here, though it's hard to tell because I layered with stickers & paper. Here's a picture of what was included in the kit:
The only supplies I added was the ribbon (which is also Making Memories), the "diecut tape" from the Dollar Tree (love that stuff!) & the brad (K & Company i think) & button (also MM). Thanks for stopping by!
