Catching up!! First share using the beautiful July kit from 'My Scrapbook Nook' .

Hi there! 
First of all I just want to say thanks so much for all the lovely comments you left me on my previous post with my layout for 'Les Papiers de Pandore'. It means the world to me!! Really!! 
Thank you so much!

Since I went away at the end of June and just got home a few days ago I only recently got to play with this beautiful new 'Nook ' kit. I was so happy tro find it in my mailbox waiting for me!
It is jam packed with beautiful papers and embellishments, mainly MME Ginger but also some 'sprouts and cute letterstickers.

I made sure my assignments would be needed late in the month this time, and have completed a few things so far. I did a couple of cards, this first one being for the fun challenge that Shellye has posted on the Nook blog for us today. I also finished a layout and have one more half-done on my scraptable. 
I will be able to share those soon!

This is what Shellye has to say about her challenge:

"This challenge shouldn't be TOO challenging given that there are soooo
many circles in this month's Nook Kit :)
For this challenge
You will need to use atleast FIVE circles on your card
and don't forget to corner ROUND those edges if you'd like!"

 I used two gorgeous sheets of paper from The MME Ginger collection in the kit.
There are so many great matching embellishments in there and many of them round, so I decided to go with the garland on this card. Lots and lots of round lements there :-).  I added one of the Jillybean journalling spots on top. And with a few  buttons and some twine to finish it off; voìla!

I hope you enjoyed my card and thanks so much for taking the time to drop by!

  3. Så herlige farger, og herlig kort.
    Takk for alle fine meldinger i bloggen min Bente, alltid så koselig når du har vært innom.

    Så du er fra Måløy, da tipper jeg at du har en nydelig dialekt lik min mormors venninne som jeg elsket da jeg var liten. Vi kallte henne tante Lisbeth. Hun har en datter som heter Ruth som har frisørsalong hjemme i huset sitt, på Måløy, eller iallefall hadde.

    God sommer til deg Bente!

    1. Thanks Rory. I'm glad you like it. No I did not use spray mount glue. I just went with ordinary white glue from a bottle, the kind that dries clear,you know.
