Messy Munchkin

This months kit from Studio Calico was called Glee!  While I'm not a fan of the show, I was a huge fan of this kit! I loved the colours, the patterns, all the embellishments and Amy Tangerine products.  With that said, I struggled at first on what to make with all these gorgeous things (I blame that on the hubby being gone for almost 2 months and me having mom brain!), but as soon as I put this layout together, inspiration and ideas have flooded my head! So thank goodness its a super rainy day here, because I think I may just spend part of the day in my scrapbook room creating!

I used my my Sew Easy Sew Easy with the Burst attachment to make the teal starburst on the chevron paper. I love my Sew Easy and its super easy to use, but my best advice is to make sure you buy the piercing mat that goes with it! It makes a huge difference!  Also my other advice is to practice and watch the video to get lots of tips! To get the bursts straight I ran the Sew Easy along a ruler.  I used Zing Embossing powder in black for the camera, and in metallic purple for the word "oh snap!"

For the title I used the Amy Tangerine Thickers that came with the kit.  For the word "munchkin" I painted it using Mister Hueys Bonny Blue.  I also sprayed the kraft paper with Mister Hueys Warm Calico.  Thanks for checking out my latest layout.  Let me know what you think!
