August is Here!

Now how did that happen? August is here and our summer is 99.999% over :( But the good news is we will get back on a routine, which I think we all crave AND Fall is the next season on its way. Plus the start of August means a new Scrapbook Circle kit is LIVE. And it is a super fun one! It is called true stories and has lots of American Crafts Shoreline, My Mind's Eye brads, Simple Stories Summer Fresh and Studio Calico patterned papers.
That gorgeous yellow flower is handmade by Tessa, fellow Design Team member and owner of Precocious Paper. You will see how I used it later this month since I was assigned to use it for my One Item Wonder. For today, though I am going to share this layout:
I punched a photo into a circle shape and put it inside the sun of the Studio Calico patterned paper. Of course I had to stitch around it too. Love the American Crafts die cuts and the Minds Eye brads--my favorite. I was never big into brads until My Mind's Eye started rocking them.
Did I mention The Twinery twine? You all know how much I love that already ;)  That little yellow tag was misted with Studio Calico Mister Huey's in the new Buttercup color. The Take Note tag was from the UPC strip at the bottom of the Studio Calico paper. The subway art piece is from Simple Stories. 
You will see lots more from this kit. Go check out the main kit HERE. And the add on HERE. Check out the Scrapbook Circle blog all month for challenges and ideas for using this fabulous kit.

Also on the first of the month, the new Imaginisce challenge is posted. This month's challenge is to use this photo as inspiration
