Guest Designer Creation

I gave the lovely Sj Dowsett a previous guest designer, these felt and twin circle embellishments and asked her to create a layout using them.
 Here is the stunning creation she came up with!
I love how Sj has used the embellishments, they look great on the bright green background! Sj also used some of the Celebrate Embellishment Kit on this layout, she used the spotty bow and the little gems from the kit.
Thanks for creating this Sj!

Tomorrow is time for another kit, September's kit will only be a half kit as I've been busy creating lots of mini kits and embellishments for the shop this month!
I will give you a clue to tomorrow's kit think 'punky'!!
Back tomorrow!

Customer Creation - Jet Set

One of my lovely customers Sue, sent me a link to a lovely layout she made using the Jet Set kit so I thought I would show you what she did with the kit. 
I like the way Sue has taken the word strips and cut them up to use the words all over her page and the use of the all handmade embellishments for the kit on her layout. Thanks Sue for letting me show it!

If you have anything you would like to share that you have made with anything from the shop please let me know as I would love to see and it could be appearing on here too! You can email me, (makeandcreate leave a message in the comments box or use the shops Facebook page!

Lisa's Creations

I really must show you July's guest designer, Lisa's great creations she made with the Jet Set embellishment kit! If you are a fan of The Make and Create shop on Facebook you may have already had a sneak preview!
Everything apart from the red letter stickers on this layout is all from the kit! How good does the red paint look?! Lisa even used the punched cardboard square from the kit to make the pattern with the paint!
Lisa just added a bit of die cut paper and red letters for this layout, the rest is all from the kit! This layout hasn't got a travel theme, the colours of the kit just so happened to match her daughters outfit for the 4th July!! It good to see the kit can be used for other themes too!
Notice the punched cardboard square that she used for the red paint on the first layout, on this layout?!
I love what Lisa did with the tag, she handstitched around it with the thread! And Lisa even made her own lovely flower using the blue ribbon from the kit. 
Thank you Lisa for your great work, I love what you did with the kit!
You can find the kit in the shop here.
Thanks for stopping by!
