Playing with Cocoa Daisy June Scrapbooking kit!

I've been a subscriber of the Cocoa Daisy scrapbooking kits for quite many years. The content of the kits match my personal style and taste, and the patterned papers are always very beautiful and trendy. Opening the kit and going through the supplies is always an exciting and inspiring moment. But too often I end up putting the kit aside and decide to wait for the perfectly matching photo and layout theme that would showcase the beauty of the papers. Yes, that's the dilemma of too beautiful scrapbooking supplies!
However, that will now change. The supplies are ment to be used and enjoyed and not saved for later inspiration. So my June kit has been in heavy use, and two layouts are already completed. And I'm moving on to the July and August kits now!

The June kit contained a fun double sided paper by Pink Paislee ('Fancy Free paper 03') with circles on both sides. I decided to cut out all of them as I wanted to embellish my layouts with the cool words on the front page circles.
I cut the paper in half, and cut the circles with die from Sizzix Framelits Die Set, using my 9" wide Big Shot Plus. The larger machine is just perfect for cutting tasks like this!

Following the painted pattern theme on the background paper I added some more white paint with a wide brush, and little pink dots with a smaller one:

The contrasting colour black was stamped on the background, using two different stamp designs:

And here's my finished page:

I finished it just in time for the Craft Stamper Magazine September Take It Make It challenge, where 'Anything Goes' as long as there's stamping somewhere on the project.

Our lovely sponsor this month is Visible Image, my favourite stamp manufacturer!
