Take Ten Kits: Journey kit: Hot Air Balloon from the Stamp Set :: February 2015

I am not a stamper, exactly. But I do use the stamps every month that come in the Take Ten Kits- so I’m trying!

This stamp set immediately gave me ideas. I knew I wanted to make a bright pink balloon so I stamped in black onto a patterned piece of pink paper. The pattern was actually roses.

For the clouds I used a plain vellum and printed vellum- one of each for every cloud. And then I LOVE the fonts used for the words.

I also used foam pieces to life the images off of the 3×4 card.

Side view of the dimension!

I hope my 3×4 gives you ideas on how to use your stamps.

I’m just a beginner! But I’m giving it a go!

Take Ten Kits Creative Team :: Journey Kit: 1 Day, 2 Buses :: February 2015

I LOVE this month’s Journey kit!

This layout uses the Ballon 4×6 card, the blue and white Polka Dot 4×6 card, Geotag and Today’s Plan 3×4 cards, the Home 4×6 card, as well as the wood Duh piece. The wood stars are from a prior kit from Take ten Kits. The alphas are Creative Memories, from my stash.

My daughter and son took the bus for travel on the same day and I knew that would make a perfect layout for this month’s Journey kit and shows parts of their everyday lives.

The layout shows her departure and her arrival destination- perfect with the Go Where Your Heart Leads You card and the Geotag card.

Close up!

I love the dimension the pieces give.

I hope this layout gives you some ideas on how to use this month’s kit.

A Journey can be anything from travel to a life’s goal.

And the fog rolls in. It is San Francisco, after all.

It was a sunny, late afternoon in June while driving towards San Francisco.

Then a fog wave came in. I hadn’t seen the fog come in quite like this before.

Soon, we were entering a dense fog.

Once we got into San Francisco, the fog wasn’t as dense.

And on the way home, it felt like the typical early evening San Francisco summer fog we were driving out of.
