friday...ScrapThat! August "Days To Remember" Kit Reveal/Blog Hop

Welcome to our August Kit Reveal and Blog Hop !

If you lose your way, here is the order:
We are so blessed to have the sweet and uber-talented, 
Lisa Gregory 
as our Guest DT for August!

Hi, My name is Lisa and by profession I am a registered nurse. I am married to my high school sweetheart and we have 2 children who are now successful young adults.  I have been a crafter my whole life. Back in 2005, when my son was doing his senior project with his girlfriend (who is now his wife) They were creating a scrapbook of their lives. They elicited my help as I was the crafty one. I found and saw the kind of scrap booking the artists did. I was amazed at the styles. It just wasn't cut and paste and stickers. It was 3 dimensional, it was gorgeous, and oh so inspiring. So I created a gallery, created my first layout and the rest is history. My style has changed a bit throughout the years, but playing with and scissors is still so therapeutic for me. I am honored and excited to be Guest Designing for Scrap That for the month of August. 

Stop by Lisa's Blog
to see her gorgeous work.

We are also excited to introduce a new addition to our DT-

Even though it was a bit challenging for me to use purple, I absolutely loved this kit! It was actually my first time using Maja Designs papers and I got to tell you, they are gorgeous! Here's what I came up with this gorgeous kit!

"US" layout
My first layout is based on my sketch for this month. I used the Main Kit Only for this layout. Picture is of  my hubby and I at the park where we got married 1.5 yrs after our wedding. I handmade the white flower I used here. Come back later this month and I'll show how I did it!

"Amy" Layout
I used the Main Kit, FAD and EAO for this layout. The doily is from my stash. Picture is of my adorable niece Amy Helen back in Easter. Here tutu matches perfectly the flowers and papers on this kit!

Gift Card Set
I used the Main Kit Only for this card set. The purple cardstock on the box and small butterflies are from my stash. I love how this set turned out!

Come back throughout the month and I'll feature each project individually with close ups, tips and techniques.
