Scrapping for Less ~ Flavor of the Month ~ Hello

Hello again! I'm here with another look at the August Flavor of the Month card kit. I have a few cards to share with you and a fun tag!  

I thought that it would be fun to make a couple shaker cards using the Pink & Main Hello dies from the Banana Split subscription. I was able to use just two pieces of The Story of Us paper from the fourth collection by alternating the papers for each card. I finished up the package of Kennedy Grace sequins and my last flower for this collection. I used a couple of scrap pieces of acetate and some other shaker elements in my stash to complete the card. I think they turned out pretty cute!

The shaker cards left me with these outlined 'hello' cuts, so naturally I just had to make a card (or two) using them, as well. Can I share a secret with you? Do you see the back layer of my cards? The stripes on one and the floral on the other. Those aren't full card front sheets. I cut out the middle of those sheets for another use. Just another way to stretch out every piece of paper in your stash.
I wanted to keep these cards pretty simple so I added a few strips of washi tape and popped up the hello die cuts and adhered that onto a white card base (with our outline of patterned paper ;) and there you have two more cards.

The Banana Split subscription also includes a couple fun natural canvas tags. I just had to pull out some stencils and my distress spray stains and get inky! Seriously, I had blue fingers all day after spraying the Mermaid Lagoon stain! Haha! I don't mind though. Anywho, once I had the tag sprayed using a few stencils, I thought... why not make a stencil using the Pink & Main Hello die in the kit?! So I did, but I only made a partial stencil... I only cut out the letter 'h'. I hot glued the flowers that I had set aside for this tag and found some fun buttons in my stash. I cut a hole in the top of the tag and secured the jumbo eyelet using my good ole' crop-a-dile. I found some ribbon and twill in my stash that I tied off with some twine and the last little touch came from a gift I received from my husband this week that included this sweet little fresh pearl on the gift packaging. I just love how this came together!! Oh, and I used some clear Wink of Stella on the letter 'h'... it's so shimmery and fun!

Have you signed up yet for the next Flavor of the Month card kit?!
