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!

Hi, Everyone! Happy Tuesday! It’s Stacy from Craftaholicmomma up today with Day 3 of Sneak Peeks of the new June Flavor of the Month Card Kit.
Omg! This kit is so dang cute! I know I say that every month, but I fall in love with each one. You won’t have to wait too much longer! The kit will debut this Saturday, June 27th.
May’s kit sold out very quickly. There are not very many extra kits to purchase so if you want to make sure you have one with your name on it then you might want to consider signing up for the monthly subscription. ￼For those details visit the Scrapping for Less Subscription Page HERE.
Today I made a card and matching tag from my scraps left from Collection 1. Omg! That ant is beyond CUTE!!
I used Mojo Monday Sketch #539 for my card.
Thanks so much for visiting and I hope to see you for the blog hop this weekend celebrating the release of this fantastic card kit.
I used the SFL Sketch Challenge #6 card sketch from the sketch sheet to create my card. You can see the full process and all the products I used for this card in my video HERE.
I hope you enjoyed this sneak peek! Be sure to check back each day this week for more previews of this fun A Walk in the Park card kit! And then Saturday is the big full reveal day which includes a hop featuring tons of great projects using this new kit.
Hello, it’s Stacy from Craftaholicmomma up today on the Scrapping for Less blog with an easel card I made using the Easy Peasy Collection from the new May Flavor of the Month Card Kit.
To make the easel card I scored the card base like normal but then I added an extra score mark on the front to make a bend in it. The top layers are only attached to the lower half of the Card front allowing it to stand up.
I layered up the images with foam adhesive that I fussy cut from the pattern papers in the collection.
With the left over scraps I made some matching gift tags.
I hope you enjoyed my card and it gives you inspiration. Thanks for visiting,
Hello, it’s Stacy from Craftaholicmomma up today on the Scrapping for Less blog with a couple of projects using Collection Three “Weather Together” from the new May Flavor of the Month Card Kit.
First I used the stamp set to make this cute pair of earrings from shrink plastic. I stamped the rainbow image with StazOn ink and colored them in with my Arteza Alcohol Markers. I adhered jewelry findings and voila! A cute pair of earrings.
Next I used some of the pattern papers to make three gift card holders. These are supper easy to make. I got the pattern from Angie over at Chicnscratch. I’m including the pattern below.
I ordered the bulldog clips from Amazon. The sentiment is from a Create A Smile stamp set from my stash.
I plan to make a bunch of these for the holidays. You could use them as mini envelopes also by just tucking in a small card.
For my first card I used the Little Lady collection from the kit. And I used the Flavor of the Month Card Sketch from the sketch sheet. I stamped the daisy from the Little Lady stamp set, colored the centers and fussy cut them out. I also used one of the sentiments from that stamp set.
I love that rainbow sunburst pattern! I matted all of my pieces on black cardstock to help them stand out. I also used the teal ribbon that came in this collection to wrap around my pink piece on the left. I stamped my sentiment from the Weather Together stamp set and then used the pink embossing powder that came in my kit to heat emboss it. I finished it off with some sequins from the kit.
I hope you guys enjoyed my quick cards today and I hope you’re all having a crafty day!❤
Hi, all! It’s Beth here and I have a crafty goal this year to use up one old card kit each month. I love the FOTM kits and have been hoarding them for the last several years. I decided this is the year I want to get them out, enjoy them and make pretty things. Plus, I need to make room for new kits!!!😉
The kit I chose to use in May was the August 2018 kit with the theme For the Love of Pets. In the kit there were 2 dog themed collections and 2 cat themed collections. To see more of the details of each of these projects as well as links to products used, you can watch the video HERE.
I started with collections 1 and 2 (Dog Tails by Echo Park and Rainbow Dots and Stripes by Sunny Studio). I combined the papers, embellishments, stamps and journal cards from these two collections to make this cute dog themed mini album.
Next, I combined papers, ephemera, stamps and embellishments from collections 3 and 4 (Smitten Kitten by Doodlebug Designs and Dots and Stripes by Echo Park) to make this cute little kitty themed mini album.
With the scraps I had left, I made a decorative note pad holder for a 3 inch post it note pad and some cards.
I hope you got some inspiration and ideas on how to use up some of your older FOTM kits (surely I’m not the only one who has been hoarding them???)! Have a crafty day!
