This kit made my heart race! - Scraptastic Club

Yesterday, on Scraptastic Club's blog I shared three layouts made with Scraptastic's October the "Heart It Races" kit and add-on. A very fitting name for this kit as it literally made my heart race when I saw it. I really adore this month's kit!!

Here's the first layout: another layout with a photo of my daughter and her friends in their Homecoming attire (I also made one for the October sketch challenge). As most of you know by now, my daughter is a foreign exchange student and Homecoming is not a familiar concept to her. When she signed up for her year in the USA this was one of the "events" she was very much looking forward to! And so when she sent me this photo I just had to scrap it straight away! 

I decided to go with the pink/white/gold colors of the kit and really like the result! Here are a few close-ups: 

Don't you just love the digital circle cut file that comes with this kit?!

The old book page is something that comes from my own stash. When scrapping I often have this old copy of "Wuthering Heights" beside me to tear pages from whenever I need a bit of extra "contrast". As a "Brontë" fan, I have several copies of this book as I can never resist it when I see it in second hand book stores.

On to the next layout I made with this kit. I wanted to scrap this photo of the four people who are most important to me: my husband and three kids. The photo was taken late in the afternoon during our holiday in Spain last April and that made for a bit of an orange glow. I decided to use the yellow/blue/brown/grey colors of the kit and LOVE the result.  

And a few details in close-up:

I love the wood veneers and cork stars in this kit!!

And last but not least a layout in another size: 8.5" x 11". As you see more and more layouts appear in this size, I decided to give this a go too and I'm not disappointed, lol. 

As I'm scrapping a photo of myself I decided to use my favorite colors for this page: red/orange/pink colors. 

Loving the Teresa Collins rub-ons in this kit! They rub-on super easy!

Well, this is it for now. Hope you enjoyed my projects! If you would like to see more projects created with this kit, or when you're looking for inspiration, Scraptastic Club's blog is the place to be! Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
