HK Memory Chest Kit Club - June 2016

Hi there, I can't believe how lax I've been in posting. Lots of things happening; sister in law visiting, sorting things out at home, getting a hang of a new lifestyle change. I have managed to scrap a few layouts, these ones included, but just haven't had the time to post them. I promise I'll post the others as soon as I can.

For this month's kit, I love all the cool graffiti like vibe. It makes for some fun, young pages.

The sketch for this month:

 Hey You Cool Girl
When I saw the papers and embellishments, I knew I had to match them to my photos. It just goes with the photo background so well. Love the water colour beehive paper. I added a light coat of gesso to help my photos stand out a bit more. I have a stitched stamp and used that around the page.
 Loving the sheet of printed acetate that comes in the kit - you can cut out phrases or shapes that you need.
I "graffitied' the wooden zigzags to emulate the photos and also coloured in the arrow paper to match the photos.

 Nutty For Nutella
True happiness comes in a jar of Nutella. Haha. This was the case for Miss C when she received her own personalized jar from her aunt for her birthday. The girl will put it on anything. She says that when this jar is finished, we will need to refill it from normal jars. Anyway, for this layout, I wanted to match the greens and blues, so I stamped and stenciled similar colours on the white background.
I layered some patterned paper in a fan shape with the photo on the bottom. Lots of different textures to choose from for the embellishments as well as the title. I used distress ink on the wooden zig zag to make it pop from the yellow.
Seriously love the acetate self cutting sheet. Only thing is trying to stick it down - can't help seeing the glue dots behind it but not a huge deal. Love the buttons that come with the kits as well.

Rock It
Oh my gosh, loving this bold and bright red background. I also splattered on some matching red ink to give it another dimension before flicking on some white paint. The photos were taken in the changing rooms.  Miss C was pooh poohing every choice I made for her and she laughed at this Rollingstones t-shirt. She thought it was funny but still rejected it. Right, time for some education in rock 'n roll.
I kept this layout quite simple with just a few cute accents. I really love the cassette tapes as they go so well with the theme. I remember recording my rock music on to cassette tapes. Oh my. Showing my age. Haha.
 I added some wooden accents diagonally from the photos just to balance out the page.

The Best Drink Ever
 On to my last layout. I chose three very different patterned papers to do the background. I ran out of vellum so I used baking paper to back the photos. Not sure about if it's acid-free but I chanced it anyway as I didn't want to clutter up the design with more patterned paper. Oh, and if you haven't tried the S'mores frappucino, why not?
 I coloured the top half of the chipboard title with as close a colour to the green on the paper as possible. I think it was Distress Ink in Evergreen Bough. Love all the vinyl pieces that come in the kit. So adorable.
Love this little semi-circle matched with the vinyl heart and buttons.
