Little Black Dress | August Kit | Lucky Penny

The Little Black Dress Kit Club's August kit, Lucky Penny, is available for sale. This kit is so versatile as you can see from the variety of layout topics featured below. You can click on any of the photos below to view them larger.

First up—my favorite this month. I finally hopped on the speech bubble bandwagon.

Last month I dusted off my colored pencils and this month embossing powder made an appearance. I used black embossing powder on the ampersand stamp in the layout below. It's an older stamp from Studio Calico. It came with a set of numbers that I still love, but don't use very often.

I love the photo in this one despite the crazy windswept hair. If Lucas wasn't such a strong, rugged, heavy little boy, he could have blown over that day. I handcut the clouds to go with the America Crafts Dear Lizzy printed vellum included in the kit.

 I used white embossing powder with the Elle's Studio stamp below.
