Thanks for stopping by the Lucky Girl Blog Party!!!

Thanks for joining me for another installment of our Lucky Girl Monthly Blog Party!

If you're just joining us, be sure to stop by the main blog and follow the party through each of our designer's blogs for tons of inspiration and chances to win scrappy RAKs by clicking here.

This month we got to play with this delicious kit,
Summer Vacation:

I LOVE this kit! OK, so I'll admit that I'm probably a little biased, seeing as I actually put the kit together... but still. I think this is one of my favorite assortment of products bundled in one happy little spot that I've seen in a long time. I was able - with some creative cutting - to get five fully embellished layouts and a set of three cards out of the kit - that's about $3.75 per project! Not too bad when the typical scrapbook page cost between $7-$12 each, and a normal store-bought greeting card is around $3.99. Plus, I still have some leftovers for other projects. Gotta love when your buck stretches so far, right?!

The LUCKY GIRL BLOG PARTY runs Thursday, July 1 through Saturday, July 4
Scroll on for more details...

Each day of the Blog Party, our incredibly talented, amazingly awesome design team will be posting a new project for you that was created with the July kit – Summer Vacation! Oh, and did I mention that each Lucky Girl has MYSTERY PRIZES to give away, with a GRAND PRIZE on the main blog?

Here's my first project, a fun layout for my nearly 11-year-old son Andrew's baby album using only ONE sheet of Pink Paislee double-sided patterned paper, a strip of 4"x12" Cranberry American Crafts cardstock (halved), and a 4-3/4"x9" block of Denim American Crafts cardstock.

Here's how I was able to stretch my Pink Paislee Starlight - Spark double sided patterned paper:

I cut out a 2"x12" strip and flipped the pattern over to incorporate those fun and bright stripes. I reattached the reversed patterned paper with two 2"x12" strips that had been punched with the Fiskars Threading Water border punch.

This layout also includes:
Alphas: Pink Paislee Expressions Weathered Wood chipboard alphas; Cosmo Cricket Tiny Type alphas and Jenni Bowlin Play Date banner stickers
Embellishments: (All American Crafts) Grosgrain Checkered Ribbon; Pearl Brad; Journaling Sticker
