Cocoa Daisy's August kit is called Santa Fe Sunset and it's my new favorite! I love the colors in this one. When I look at all my layouts for a kit together, it's easy to pick out my favorite bits. That black & white chevron paper from Basic Grey? Yup, I used it on every single project. And the wood veneer cameras from the embellishment add-on. They ended up on three of the four. And the only reason they're not on the fourth layout is because I used the wood veneer vehicles on that one. Apparently, I'm really into the tiny wood veneer embellishments.
Here are my projects with this kit...
I took a bunch of pictures I really liked that weekend, so I needed two pages. I also added some little scraps from the weekend - a coaster from the restaurant and a movie ticket. (P.S. Moonrise Kingdom is magical!) I LOVE that "you are here" stamp. It's one of the custom Cocoa Daisy stamps for August. I think I'll be using this one a lot.
Another event with tons of pictures - my cousin Stacy's wedding. Anytime the whole family is together I end up with lots of fun shots. I'm a big fan of the two-page layout again. I used to do them all the time, then I stopped. Lately, I've been working them in again. Mainly for the economy of it, I think. When you've been doing this hobby for over a decade, you begin to have storage issues with all the layouts you've done. So lately, I like the two-pager instead of a bunch of single page layouts.
And this one. Well, it isn't exactly what I wanted it to be. I don't love it. Which is a shame, because I adore those little wooden vehicles. I wish the layout had turned out better. You can't win them all, I guess.
The kit will be on sale on August 1. I think this one will go quickly!
