Hello Hello the full reveal

I hope you have all recovered from your long weekend!  It's hard to believe we are already in to the June kits, its gone so fast for me.  The summer kits are always some of my favorites and like I mentioned the other day, these were so much fun to work with.

Just a reminder that all links below will work as of right not 9:00am PST for subscribers.  Non subscribers can start shopping for the kits tonight at 9:00pm PST.

Here is my spread made exclusively with the Hello Hello Project Life® kit only.

I could not resist the orange and pink combo and luckily my photos from this week paired nicely.  I loved the little pink alpha and how it blended so well with the pink stripe on that one card, and the wood veneer & is so cool, love that font.  I covered it and the 5 with the Gold Wink of Stella brush pen and in person its so pretty.  I added quite a few digital brushes to my photos before printing them off.  I love how just a little accent here or there makes it that much better.  You can see all of the digital brush sets for the month here.

Shanna created a really great set of digital templates this month and I used one of them to create a focus on the top half of the right side of my spread.  I just adjusted the size of the photo blocks so they would work when cut apart. I also used the rainbow stripes on the two bottom slots and just changed the orientation to create my own cards.  That High Five card was one of my favorites this month.

My second spread was made with a few more cards from the Main Kit and lots of embellishments from the two Addons; Guten Tag and G'Day.  I loved the blue and green color combo and it paired just great with my week 20 photos.

More Digital Stamps printed right on cards or used to make my own, more wood veneer covered in Gold Wink of Stella and some amazing Kal chipboard stickers from Guten Tag.

Paige created two amazing cut files this month that I knew I really wanted to use, you can see them here.  I loved the circle cut file and opted to shrink the circles down for my title card and punched 1" circles from a few sheets of the 4x6 paper pad and even from the gold doily that came in the G'Day addon.  I layered them under the cut file on top of a sheet of paper and I love how the different patterns all work together.

The wood veneer sequins in the Guten Tag addon were so fun to work with.  I even stamped with them for some added dimension.  I just cut a tiny piece of double sided foam tape and stuck the sequin to the back end of my xacto knife.  I used a gold pigment ink and got a really great stamped image.  It definitely worked best on a smooth paper instead of a textured cardstock so keep that in mind if you try it.  I also added a bit of shine to the veneer with the Clear Glitter Wink of Stella Brush pen.

The & cut file was a last minute addition, I didn't know how to end the spread and was pouring over a few photos that I just didn't have space for and then it hit me, print them small and tuck them in the slats. I cut the & from one of the sheets of the 4x6 paper pad and and I loved how this worked out. The photos are super tiny in case you are wondering about 1/2" by 3/4" I just created a small template in Photoshop Elements and printed them out.

I think you will be so excited when the kits hit your door and I can't wait to see what everyone does with them.

Don't forget to check out the rest of the scrapbook and card kits this month, you can see everything here.  I especially Love the Stamp addons this month; Aloha and Howdy which even comes with a die!  Wafer thin dies are my new favorite thing to work with these days.

Enjoy the reveal and have a great week!
