Oh my gosh – how exciting – as part of my DT duties for 123 this month I got to help design a couple of new Scraplets items. I say help – since Julie from Scraplets took a couple of ideas I had and made them up. But I am so rapt with the way they turned out – all that I had hoped for.

The first of them is a hearts frame and the word ‘Smitten’. I asked Julie to use an existing font they have that I like and to put little hearts onto some of the letters. Then some hearts twined up the side of a frame was the matching piece. I used this on my sketch layout – since this month was my turn to do the sketch. It’s the first time I have ever done a sketch – so it will be interesting to see what – if anything – people do with it. I used the lovely pinky-purple and green “Be Mine” range from Kaiser for this – have wanted to cut out all those hearts ever since I saw them.

Had a couple of heart-stopping moments getting it all done – woke up one morning to find the Kindyglitz had changed the colour of the ink on the frame and title completely – from dusky pinky-purple to bright pink. Ouch!! Had to sand it all back and re-ink and glitz it. But using the Kaiser pearls was cool – the new colours are just gorgeous. Love the brads too.

I hid all the journalling behind a hand-made heart embellishment. Cut out heaps of the little hearts from the pp and stuck them on a larger heart to make a little card. Popped the journalling and a little photo inside and tied it all up with ribbon. Got the idea from a cardmaking magazine – though I altered it somewhat to suit what I had in mind.

The other Scraplets idea I had is intended for the boys. I can only give a sneek peak, as I need to get a second title and re-paint that too. Not my weekend for inking – believe me. But the boys adore the idea – although DS2 is not so happy with the comments about him on the layout. Lol

Again using Kaiser pp – love the recent ranges – actually, love most of their stuff. The new brads are just glorious. Lots of cutting out again on this one too – my poor fingers.

So I will leave you with these – will upload the whole layout when I get the new Scraplets. The 2 kits I have played with here are exclusive to 123 – so come check them out and see what else Julie has in her extensive and gorgeous range of chippie items.
