See, I told you this was a stunning kit! Now, I want to share my current creations using this kit.

This first layout evolved around the Pink Paislee Portfolio Photograms frame. The minute I saw this one, I knew I HAD to use it on a layout about Little Man.
Once I got started, I went with the hexagon theme in the background paper, cutting my own out of various papers from the kit and extras. I also used the Jenni Bowlin small chipboard hexagons to add contrast and dimension to the layout (some of the smaller hexagons are layered on the Chipboard and others were created using the chipboard as a guide, but not layered on it...so they are flat)
To finish off the layout, I layered my "T" with the "Hello Handsome" circle that I cut from the Glitz Design banner and I was finished.

My next project is a (GASP) CARD! I started out using a super easy card sketch from Kimber McCray, and then the card morphed from there. I LOVE the red gingham paper with the bathing beauty (available in the extra paper) so decided I would use her on the card. I fussy cut around the banner pieces, to give it some interest, then added the washi tape accented circle and my sentiment. Can I just say, this is one card that I am totally in loving? And, it didn't take me hours to create ;)

And a close up:

My last layout is one that I created for a tutorial. I took some of the naked Jenni Bowlin chipboard from the kit, covered it with glitter and then sealed it with Glossy Accents. This was such a fun layout to create, and as you can see, I'm a little obsessed with hexagons right now ;)

And a couple of close ups:



As you can see, I've loved working with this kit, so far. Remember, if you haven't picked up the kit yet, there are still a few available. 
Also, we love to see your creations at Birds of a Feather Kit Co. You can always share in our GALLERY and/or over at our FACEBOOK page. 

Have a wonderful Thursday!
