If you came from Club Scrap's Blog (Karen's Post), you're in the right place! That's where you'll find the complete list, in case you get lost!
Your next stop is Kay's Blog!

I got carried I have lots of projects...first up is a Digital Scrapbook Page, using elements from Sunflowers Digital Kit:

I use PicMonkey...just layer papers and embellishments...easy peasy! =)

And this kit is so awesome, you can get very different looks...check the cards:

Card #1: I used a printed paper and added some stamping. Sunflowers Fibers and Sunflowers Embellishment Pack Safety Pin on the left side. I added some Sunflowers Sparkle Stickers, colored with a yellow Copic marker.

Card #2: Printed paper and Sunflowers Embellishment Cutapart, plus a stamped die cut panel. Sunflowers Fiber on the side. I used Sunflowers Embellishment Pack Sunflower Button, colored with Copic markers. Then I added some Gold Glitter Dimensional Magic on button and the sunflower on the bottom right.

Card #3: Have you seen the August Technique Challenge - use Vintage/Sepia Colors? I used a printed paper that already has neutral hues, and added some Distress Stains (Tim Holtz) in the flower's center and leaves. I stamped "shine" from Sunflowers Jumbo Unmounted Stamps and added Sunflowers Fiber on the left.

Card #4: How about a more Clean and Simple (CAS) card? Simply stamp Sunflowers Jumbo Unmounted Stamps quote on a die cut panel, add some Sunflowers Washi TapeSunflowers Fiber, a Sunflowers Embellishment Pack Sunflower Button and some Dahlia White Jewel Dazzles.

Card #5: Now a little trick...if you don't have a silhouette stamp, simply stamp the image and color it in with a black marker! I used printed paper, added some stamps and watercolored it with All-Purpose Inks...

OK, that's all folks! Don't forget to go to Kay's Blog!
