My Creative Scrapbook May Creative Kit: Doodlebug Take Note

The Creative kit at My Creative Scrapbook this month features the bright and fun Take Note collection from Doodlebug Design.

The kit contains lots of super cute Take Note papers and stickers along with Prima flowers, ribbons, buttons, a 12x12 piece of canvas, and even paper clips. Such a happy kit!

Here's one of the layouts that I created with it:

Lots of paper layers on this one! I added a white doily from my stash to soften things up a bit.

The orange flowers are die cut from the canvas sheet. The canvas did need a bit of preparation to stiffen it up enough to make a crisp cut:

First, I cut out 3 squares of the approximate size of my flower dies.

Next, I applied a fairly thick layer of mod podge.

and I used a high-tech (LOL) apparatus to hang them to dry.
Once dry, the canvas was able to be die cut.

Here's a photo of the May Creative kit:

It's such a lovely and cheery lay-out. I love the touch of burlap.
