Hello! I'm back again with a few more layouts and a card using the January Kit. This kit features the Altenew 'Enjoy the Ride' Collection. It is so pretty I can't wait to show you!

Have you been playing along this weekend with our online crop? If not, head over to the Facebook group and join in on the fun. This is the layout I featured last night for the Cut File Challenge. Make any project using a cut file of your choice. If you would like to use the Pie Chart one I used, you can download it free here. Make sure you upload your project to the challenge album to be entered to win a prize!
This layout was inspired by the bicycles in the collection and the fact that the picture matches the colours in the kit. I chose a cut file that looks like a wheel. The cut file is made by Juliana Michaels and has given me permission to share the file with you. If you're a card maker, you will want to check out her work! I resized the circles to three different sizes and backed each section with a different patterned paper.
To create the background, I covered the white cardstock with gesso. I smooshed watered down pink paint with a piece of plastic around the page. I then splattered a darker pink and a green around the circles. I propped up the picture and one bicycle with foam. The purple letters in the title come with the kit and the green letters are by Simple Stories and are from a previous kit. The remainder of the pieces come from the two ephemera packs and chipboard stickers.

Hi scrappy peeps! I'm back with another post for Scrap Shotz. I've made some scrapbooking layouts using the January kit. This kit features the beautiful Altenew 'Enjoy the Ride' Collection. There are so many big flowers on these papers just asking to be fussy cut!

Zoom in on those socks! How cool is it that they match one of the papers in the kit? I didn't want to let the page get too busy so I built it on white cardstock and put just two thin strips of paper behind the pictures. This layout is so easy to make. Rip some paper for the corners, fussy cut the leaves and flowers, splatter some paint and voila!
I also used the add-on stamp to add some black ink branches. I tucked a piece of ephemera behind the flowers on the bottom right and used a chipboard title.
Inspiration is Everywhere
This layout began with the picture. My daughter actually took this selfie crawling into her fort. I wanted to make it look like she was peeking out from under the paper. I tore the paper so it fit around her head and added some more to the lower half of the page to balance it out. I layered some of the add-on flower ephemera and chipboard pieces.
The final touch was to drip some paint down the layout to go with the paintbrush sticker and journal about her creativity.
I stamped the sentiment using the add-on stamp. The flowers are made from washi tape. I used a Stampin' Up punch to make the petals. It is actually a punch with a dove and the petal is the dove's wing. I added many petals together to make the flower. I used a separate punch to create the centers of the flowers. I drew the stems with a marker and placed a piece of chipboard on top.
That's all for now - but there will be more this weekend! I hope you'll be able to join us at the 'Staycation' crop in the Scrap Shotz Facebook Group. Friday 6pm - 10pm and Saturday 10am - 6pm. Lot of inspiration, games and prizes! Have a great day.
