Kristin Cronin-Barrow – Great Outdoors: Meadows

Standard

It’s time for another beautiful release in Kristin’s wonderful Great Outdoors series! I just love those kits, and this week we’re visiting the meadows!

Kick off your shoes and dance in the sunshine! Kristin’s latest kit explores the beauty of a grassy green meadow. The colors reflect that inspiration: greens that are bright and beautiful, blues the colors of a prairie sky and rich yellows and oranges. Elements include lots of flower blossoms, flower stems, foliage and greenery, wooden frames, buttons, butterflies, bumblebees, word art and more! Let yourself be young and free again…and scrap those beautiful memories!

This kit comes with loads of extras: cards, snippets and bonus woodgrain papers. All available both seperate and as a bundle!

As usual, I really loved scrapping with this kit! Besides meadows, it’s perfect for scrapping plenty more outside photos! I took these pics from a beautiful flower garden we visited in Oxford to scrap:

Duck, Duck, Goose is perfect for documenting an afternoon as the local duck pond, a relaxing day at the lake, or even your loved ones being silly! When I first saw it, I thought it was perfect for some pics we took at our girls weekend last week!

But I also wanted to play around and see if I could take this kit in another direction. Cause when you say Duck, I think of…

Which turned out perfect as well if you ask me! So with this kit being suitable for so many things, there’s no reason not to buy it!

Kristin Cronin-Barrow – Hot Summer Days

Due to a girls weekend out, I wasn’t able to scrap immediately with Kristin’s other new release. But I still wanted to show it to you, since it’s gorgeous! Next to the Hot Summer Nights, we now have Hot Summer Days!

I hope you’ll love it as much as I did, have a wonderful time scrapping those warm memories!

Kristin Cronin-Barrow – Hot Summer Nights

Standard

Let’s dust this blog off, cause I’m back! I haven’t stopped scrapping, but I did quit all of my CT jobs for a while cause my mind was on overload. But when the amazing Kristin Cronin-Barrow was having a guest CT call, I couldn’t resist! Of course I never thought that I would make it, a lot of the Sweet Shoppe scrappers are so incredibly good, but I did! So for the months of July and Augusts I’ll be scrapping with her gorgeous designs!

This week, her new release is called Hot Summer Nights. And boy, are we having some of those here in Holland at the moment!

Warm temps and long sunsets…what’s better than “Hot Summer Nights”? The deep, rich colors and textures in this kit will have to staying up late to scrap, guaranteed. The embellishments include fireflies, stars, flowers, buttons, a full moon, a crescent moon, party lights and lots of word strips. Two different sunset-colored alphas give you the options to make your page perfect. Time to get your friends together, throw a party or a bonfire and grab your camera. Don’t wait…summer nights will be gone before you know it!

There are also lots of add-ons available, both separately and as a bundle!

I got so excited by the beautiful colors in this kit that I couldn’t stop scrapping at one LO, so I made two!
