August You Make Me Smile by Amy Voorthuis

My favorite month is the month August it's almost always good weather which I really love!
I used the whole Kraft Gift Bag plain as the base off my card it's a card 7,6 inch by 5,7 so that's kind off huge for a card. I love layering my cards so here I have about nine layers including the doily.

I can't get enough off  "The Avenues" collection so for this card it's all The Avenues & Kraft Gift Bag. On my last vacation trip about 2 weeks ago I went to a local scrapbook store and found some off that papers that where sold out at where I I was very pleased and bought them all.

For my second card I thought why not make my own flowers out off Kraft Gift Bags. I just separated the bags and cut out five circles cute the edges with a scissor sprayed them with water & shine glimmer mist to give it a sparkle! Then I wrinkled them and layered them on top of each other. I had so much fun!

This card is also huge, don't you just love the flowers BoBunny offers I never seem to have enough off them. For this card I used the pretty blues in the "Somewhere In Time" collection.

4U by Romy Veul

I think the beautiful Kraft bags suit a vintage style of scrapbooking perfectly and, therefore, make a great match with the wonderful Somewhere in Time collection. On this card I combined the beautiful papers from this collection with a Music Note Kraft gift bag. 

The central element on my card had to be the hot-air balloon and I simply couldn't resist putting it on a pair of wood glasses too as a funny twist. I layered the hot-air balloon on top of two die-cut gears and a tag to make it stand out more. 

I also added some faux stitching by stamping with the beautiful Stitches Stamps in the corners of the card.

Do You Love Me? by Romy Veul

For my second card I choose a rather uncommon combination of colours: pink, red and Kraft. I wanted to try something different and mixed the beautiful Head over Heels collection with a Music Note Kraft bag. Since the music note pattern looks very elegant, I thought they actually made a really great match. 

The central element on this card had to be the beautiful Head Over Heels chipboard sticker with the text 'Do you love me?' on it. I added a few chipboard flags underneath it and stapled beautiful hearts and a sentiment from chipboard on top of it.
