SD4U May Kit- Cosmo Cricket Garden Variety

I LOVE this kit! The pages were really fun to put together!

This is my first layout and it goes with my NSD challenge. (See the forum for more info!)
This is little Payton when she was about 6 months old. She is 5 1/2 now! The letters and buttons are from my stash and I cut the stars with my Cricut.

This layout has the other part of the stars!
I glimmer misted the red cardstock before I adhered the stars with foam tape and the letters are from my stash. This is a really old picture that had been in a frame. That's Kylie when she was only 18 months old!

Here is another older picture!
This is from a trip to Sea World in 2003. This was before Wes was 1 so Kylie was 2 1/2. Letters and buttons from my stash (probably an older kit!).

And these are my 3 school kids!
These are their spring pictures so they just took them. Kylie is 9 1/2, Wes is 7 1/2, and Payton is 5 1/2! Letters and brads from my stash too.

I have so much more product still. I know I will be making some more layouts with this kit. It is really fun and a great kit!

These should be on sale in the store now. SD4U Store

Friday, April 23, 2010 May Kits!

Woohoo!!! Martha has done it AGAIN! The May kits have been revealed and WOW, they're sooooo fantastic!

Here's a quick look at kit #1 featuring Letterbox by American Crafts:
This one is actually already sold out from subscribers picking it! Way to go Martha!

A look at kit #2 featuring Thrift Shop by October Afternoon:
Luckily Martha ordered double of this one so there are some left still. It is super popular!

and a look at kit #3 featuring Garden Variety by Cosmo Cricket:
This is the one I get to play with! Woohoo! I love it.

Be sure to check out all of the many closeup photos that Martha has posted on the message board! I've heard several ladies talking about ordering 2 of these kits or even all 3 of them, and who can blame them?! (I am one that actually buys the ones I don't get to work with as a DT member. I just love them so much!)

April Kit Projects from

This is a beautiful kit and it is stuffed with wonderful embellishments. I loved using them on my layouts this month.

Here are my first layouts:

The letters are from my stash. Those scalloped circles are punched from on of the papers in the kit.

There is a lot of glitter and Stickles on all these chipboard pieces. DT member Mette and I both placed an owl in our chipboard trees! How fun! :gayfight:

I had these Easter pics pulled out to use last month, but Kylie's purple shirt didn't work with the WeR papers. It worked great with this month's papers though! Those are lines of glitter between my papers too! It really sparkles in person. Those tiny strips between the glitter lines are the little strips that ares left over when you use a boarder punch!

All items from the kit except the black Thickers. Those are from a previous kit. That double scallop boarder strip is the on I punched to get the tiny strips on the above layout.

Thank for looking! I can't wait to see what all of you create with this kit. It is beautiful! If you would like to purchase this kit, visit the SD4U store! There are still some in the store!

PS-I'm half way through another layout with more paper and embellies still to use!
