Hello - Susan here with this month's Just the Gist of the Kit post.
Yesterday we revealed that our July inspiration is the Heat Wave Kit from Scrapbook and Cards Today from Summer 2015. It's a perfect kit for the summer season - filled with bright colors, bold patterns and classic summer icons.
Perhaps July is an especially busy month for you though and you'd like to make a smaller kit this time around. I've pared down the inspiration to just ten pieces for a petite kit to create a layout or two, a pocket page spread or several cards.
I also included the die-cut packet, which in addition to embellishments, also provides pieces that could be used for titles and layering.
The alphabet is a fabric Thickers set and could be used as is or colored with markers, mists or ink to coordinate with a particular paper. The stamp set provides both text and icon options and again is something that could be customized with color to match a particular project.
My final choice is the set of yellow enamel dots which can add just that little "finishing touch" to a pocket, card or page.
That's my take on putting together a mini-kit this month and I hope I've given you some ideas for making one of your own. Whether your kit is large or small, please add it to our links here so we can see how you interpreted the inspiration. Thanks for participating with us!
