Neat & Tangled + Scrapbook Circle and a Giveaway



I'm really excited about today's post.  Neat & Tangled is hopping with Scrapbook Circle this week.  There's an exclusive Neat & Tangled stamp set in the Scrapbook Circle kit, Mix Tape, this month, and this week we're showing off projects using the kit.



I created a layout.  I love the stamp set and used the books to create a border for my title panel.  I watercolored the border and then fussy cut the top.

I love how bold and graphic the papers in this kit are.  I chose one of the graphic black and white prints for my base paper and then layered some of the other papers under my photo.  I used one of the journaling cards on one side as well to kind of anchor the photo.

There is a great mix of embellishments in the kit.  I was particularly enamored with the Elle's Studio cork shapes and Evalicious puffy stickers.  I stamped the word 'stories' from the N&T stamp and added that with one of the cork pieces in the kit.



Please make sure that you stop by the Scrapbook Circle and Neat & Tangled blogs all week.  Neat & Tangled will be selecting one lucky commenter for a $30 credit to Scrapboook Circle and Scrapbook Circle will be selecting a winner of a $30 credit of N&T.  

AND, I also have a giveaway.  I've got an extra exclusive stamp set up for grabs.  Just leave a comment here, if you follow my blog you can leave an extra comment.  I'll pick a winner this weekend, good luck!

  23. Love your bold paper and how the weight of your bold title font is just a little bit thicker than the background stripes. They work perfectly together! Those stamps were also a great excuse to scrap that adorable photo : )

  45. First of all, that is an adorable photo! :) So stinkin' cute. This layout makes me what to scrapbook. But of course, I won't. ;) But I love the B& W with the colorful strip of books holding it all together. So fun how you watercolored (?) those. What a fun stamp set. Great sentiment. And the cork. Well, that detail rocks. :)
