More Cards Featuring the August Flavor of the Month Card Kits from Scrapping for Less!!

Hello, again! I have another round of cards featuring the August Flavor of the Month card kits. I also revisited a couple of the sketches... and I have to say that Sketch #4 was my favorite!




This card was done with absolutely no stamping. I was able to put together different pieces from the third collection. I also added just a touch of twill. I think this would be a cute birthday card for a little boy... they are the definition of rough & tumble!!




For this card, I stuck with the same sketch and the same collection. I nearly put this one together without any stamping... but I found a little birthday stamp and couldn't help but add it! Jungle birthday... too cute! I'm thinking this would be another cute birthday card for a little boy (even with the sequins! Ha).




I think I mentioned last time that I love polka dot papers, I just had to use them for this card and my favorite little owl was a must, as well! He's just too cute! I traced the little cloud shaker shape onto a sturdy scrap of card stock and then used that as a sort of cloud stencil. I sponged around the edge (and a lot on my fingers!) to make a sky. In retrospect, I wish I hadn't added the gray paper behind the shaker. Attaching it to the 'sky' piece would have been really nice, but I changed my plans halfway through and couldn't go back. I'm sure you've been there too. :) I did a little masking magic to change up the sentiment for this one and used the My Favorite Things Speech Bubbles die to add the sentiment to the card. Too cute!




Now my last card is really a fun and quick way to use up all those scraps of paper that get left behind after making all these cute cards. This sentiment, that I hadn't used yet, was also perfect to finish this card off! 

Hope you enjoyed these cards and they give you inspiration for your own kits. If you haven't already signed up for the Flavor of the Month card kits, well... what are you waiting for?!

  1. You did a great job with these cards! I really like the Owl shaker card, and I agree with you that the sky background on the shaker would have perhaps looked nice. The last card is truly a wonderful way to use up scraps. I think the prints on the paper and the way you have placed them on the card front remind me of a shelf of books. So apropos with the quote. Thanks for sharing your ideas!

    1. Thank you, Pamela. I was thinking the same thing about the scraps of paper resembling a shelf of books. I'm glad you liked the cards.
