SD4U July Reveal!

It's the first week of the month, so it's reveal time at Scrapbook Deals 4 U kit club!

I was assigned the fun "Max & Whiskers" kit this month. It is such a versatile kit! I was able to make 2 pet layouts, a family layout, and 5 cards. I still have some of the kit left!

Here's what I created...

This is One Unique Individual: This is our cat, Sabre. Dan loves this picture of him! It just seems so funny that he's sitting there with his eyes closed. Anyway, Sabre is unlike any other cat I know. He's much more like a dog in that he follows his Papa around everywhere, and really portrays the meaning of "man's best friend" in every way. I used Suede Glimmer Mist on the cream background cardstock as well as on the patterned paper to add to the overall distressed look. That cream colored flower is simply the ribbon from the kit, twisted and hot glued into the shape of a flower, with a button added in the center. Those small tiny alpha letters are not part of the kit.

The Original Men's Club: These are the 3 cats that Dan had when I met him (Pumpkin, Quack, and Sabre). They were very often huddled up all together on our bed. Somehow we came up with the nickname "The Men's Club" for these 3. Then a few years later I got my own cat, and now that he's older and now that 2 of the original male cats have passed on, we have a new men's club. But, we will always remember the Original Men's Club :) I used Suede Glimmer Mist on the papers to add to the distressed look. Those small tiny alpha letters are not part of the kit.

And Baby Makes 3: This is Dan, Allison, and me when Allison was about 2 weeks old. I used Suede Glimmer Mist on the white background cardstock and I used white fabric paint to create those pearl-looking dots on the big blue circle.

Set of Kids' Cards: There are sooo many adorable embellishments in this kit! I decided I wanted to save the googly-eye critters for some cute cards to send out. I grabbed some cardstock and alphabet stickers from my stash, used a swiss dots embossing template, added some machine stitching, and made this set of 3 cards using the embellishments from the kit. The cat card says, "You're Purrfect", the bunny card says, "You're Somebunny Special", and the dog card says, "I Ruff You".

Set of Thank You Cards: I'm one of those that really can't stand to let too many leftovers sit there unused... so I assembled a pair of simple thank you cards. You can never have enough of those on hand! For these, I grabbed some more cardstock and alphabet stickers from my stash, added some machine stitching, and used up some more of the paper strips and embellishments that I had leftover from the kit.

If you ordered this kit, you're sure to have a lot of fun with it. If you haven't ordered it yet, there are still some left in the SD4U online store so head on over and grab one!
