Here is my June Kit - It's the Little Things

I knew I had the Scenic Route - Laurel paper that had all the colored birds on it so I started with that for my inspiration piece. I added papers for both the A and B side of the Inspiration Collection so I have a quite large kit.

Papers Set 1: Tinkering Ink - Fred Astaire, Dear Lizzy - Spring "Lazy Ladybug", Pink Paisley - Numbers; My Minds Eye - Dolled Up "Princess" Delicate, Dear Lizzy - Spring "Swallowtail Social", Bo Bunny -Down By the Sea "Lagoon" and "Coral", Amy Tangerine, Jen Hadfield Collection - Best (next three sheets), Unknown Green, Kaiser Craft - To Have and To Hold, Scenic Route - Laurel Recollections - Teal Paisley and a couple of Forged Papers.

As if this wasn't enough I pulled in some paper that the guys had given me along with more older stash.

Page Set 2: DCWV - Copper cardstock, Pink Paisley -  Pick Me Up 7 and 16, Doodlebug - Cream & Sugar, Unknown Polka Dot Paper, Vicki Boutin - All the Good Things "Social Butterfly" and "Little Things", Dear Lizzy - Star Gazer "Be Free" and Happy Heureux", Unknown Yellow and Green, Doodlebug - Spring Things, American Crafts - Yummy Bunny and Bazzil embossed cardstock.

Then I had to add a couple of die cut pieces to cover the die cuts from the Embellishment kit.

 I used the Cricut and Silhouette to make. I switched up the shapes from the one in the Embellishment kit.

I have included a couple of frames, Pink Paislee  Pick me Up Ephemera and Haberdashery, Enamel Dots, Scrapbook and Cards today stamp, DIY camera and suitcase, paperclips and buttons. The closest I came to the bird is the crane in the embellishment package. I made a couple of cameras and suitcases using the Cricut Cartridges. I had to add in the elephant buttons for Katie's layout. She love the elephants.

Some more stuff that the guys got for me. (Don't faint - but there is Thickers in here and some even have glitter! It's a first for me). Shimelle Glitter Dots, America Crafts - Good Things, Washi, Cut a parts, Wood Veneers and some more pompoms and another 6x6 paper pad - Pink Paislee Pick Me Up.  I'm using several Cricut Cartridges in my kit this month  -Paper Lace 1 and 2, Going Places, Graphically Speaking, Heritage and Doodlecharms.  The paper pad has some distress papers that I thought was a good match for the water colored stickers in the inspiration kit.

I know I will be adding paint and cardstock as I scrap during the month.

Your next stop on the hop is Julene who always has a wonderful Kit.

Oh boy - I definitely remember Scenic Route and I think I had that very same bird paper! You selected some pretty items and I like that you added those die-cuts, too.
