Try This at Home!

We've all seen that disclaimer, "Don't Try This at Home"...and sometimes I think, "why in the world would anybody want to do that anyway??!!"  Well today, I am here to share something, that you can definitely try at home, using the August Kit from The Paper Bakery!  If you're like me, I'm sure you have a huge stash of scrappy products and it is always fun to find ways to mix those with the awesome Kits that come to your doorstep each month.  

For today's tutorial, I combined the August Kit, with some of my left over Thickers to create a custom background.  This was a great way to get rid of some of those Thickers that have been sitting around and are older than two of our children!!  Plus, it gave me a fun way to jazz up one of the sheets of Cardstock, that come as a new Add-On now, each month!

I used four different colored Mists on the Cardstock, to blend with the papers included in the August Kit.  Here's an easy tutorial, showing the process for creating the background look.

1.  Choose a mix of letter stickers and Thickers and place them randomly on the cardstock.   I used a variety of fonts and sizes.

2.  Select your mist colors.  You can use one or you can mix several together.  I used 4 different colors of Color Shine and sprayed each of the 4 corners to blend the colors together.

3.  Remove all of the letter stickers and Thickers and you will have a fun misted alpha pattern on your cardstock.

I hope this inspires you to find fun ways to incorporate your existing scrap supplies, in with your monthly Kits!
