I went with a mostly pink monochromatic theme for my card… but colored up a brown chicken so it would pop on the card. I don’t make too many shaker cards… for whatever reason they don’t usually work out for me, but this one did! I had so much fun creating it!
I have a process video for this card on the SFL YouTube Channel. You can check that out here…

Hey there, it’s Beth here today! I decided to play some more with the Picnic Time collection from the June 2020 Flavor of the Month card kit, A Walk in the Park. You can view my full process video and links to products used HERE.
When I saw the strawberry and red gingham prints in this collection, I immediately thought of some pictures of my daughters picking strawberries from our garden. So, I decided to challenge myself to make a 12×12 scrapbook page, using the 6×6 papers in this collection!
I used the red gingham and turquoise polka dot papers to back my photos and then accented with the strawberry paper. I did pull a sentiment stamp from the Pond Life collection, the Be Full of Life sentiment, to stamp on my yellow tag made from a scrap of the yellow polka dot paper. I added some scrap strips I had left over to the left side of the page and cut them into fishtails. I did the same for the top right corner of the page. Then I finished off the layout with some letter stickers from my stash and sequins that came with the Banana Split Level goodies from this kit.
I had one full sheet of paper left, that yellow gingham, so I used it as my card mat on a red cardstock cardbase. I added the turquoise and red heart pattern piece (my next largest scrap) in the center. On the left side, I added a thin strip of white cardstock to anchor the fishtail banners. I used scraps I already had as the fishtails (I only used 3 instead of the 4 that the sketch showed). I pulled another sentiment from the Pond Life collection (for some reason those were fitting better with my projects today), Hope You are Doing Well, and stamped it on a scrap of white cardstock. I ended up using a corner rounder on all 4 corners to give it a softer and rounder look. Then I added some of the clear enamel dots that came in the Picnic Time collection.
As I was looking at the scraps I had left, I decided I could piece together one more card.
I used a black cardbase this time and pieced together several of the scraps I had left into a grid-like pattern. I used a tag die (from a previous FOTM kit) and topped it with one of the ant ephemera pieces and the Missing You sentiment from this kit’s stamp set. I popped this tag up on some foam squares in the center of the card. I finished this card off with the last of those clear enamel dots. And that finished off this kit!
These projects were a lot of fun and I hope they gave you some more ideas on how to use your kit!
Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you’re having a crafty day!
Benny the Bigfoot is just adorable! I have been having fun making cards with him and his footprint. Here are a couple that I have come up with so far and I’m not even finished with all the goodies from this collection:
Totally digging the color scheme of this card, using an inside scalloped die gave me this almost bottle cap looking circle which was a perfect place to put Benny. Used an embossing magic powder bag then VersaMark ink to stamp him down and white detail embossing powder to heat emboss this image. Stamped the sentiment out in Versafine black onyx ink then heat embossed that with clear embossing powder so it would be super shiny.
Using MFT sweet tooth ink to stamp the image onto the heart sticker (sticker is included in this collection) it left a perfect chalk-like look to the sentiment. Stamped footprint in VersaClair black ink because I knew I wouldn’t be coloring it in. Finished off this card by adding some enamel dots (okay, hearts) from my stash.
I am still playing with this collection so I’ll share the rest of the cards made with it on SFL’s Show and Share FaceBook Group. It’s a great place for inspiration and sharing what we’ve all been working on with our SFL purchased goodies.
Thank you so much for spending some time with me today here on the blog and I hope you’ll come back next Thursday and take a gander at more cards from another collection in the “Let’s Encourage One Another” Flavor of the Month card kit.
