Happy Memorial Day to our Scrappy Friends! Today I have a couple of pages to share with you that I have been working on this past week.

This first page uses the brand NEW June Summer Wind kit! This kit has become a fast favorite and I know I'll be playing with it a LOT over the next few weeks!

One of the things I have noticed and LOVE about this kit is how well it coordinates with leftover doo dads from the past few Noel Mignon kits. On this page I used items mostly from the Summer Wind kit but also added in the flower, and Jenni Bowlin Magpie Quilted Stickers from the March Homespun Kit (sorry, sold out).

I created my title using the letters from the Tim Holtz NATURE Grungeboard set. I love how easy it is to sew through the grungeboard with my sewind machine! I dotted my I's with the Goosebump stickers from the kit. LOVE those things!

I also created a 4th of July page with the May Jack & Jill Kit . . . trying to get caught up on some summer memories from last year. :) I also added in the blue patterned paper from the January Cabin Fever Kit and the My Mind's Eye kraft journaling card from the Noel Mignon store.

I pulled out my Cricut machine to create the title, stars, and parade kids on this page. I wanted to add more interest to the title by mixing in the letter stickers from the Jack & Jill kit. I LOVE the way different fonts look together! I used both the Amy Tangerine Thickers and the Pebbles Letter Stickers here.

I had a lot of fun experimenting with the stamps from the kit on this page. I LOVE the frame stamp! Here I used the frilly edges of the frame stamp to create my own journal block by stamping around the edges of a square of patterned paper with the yellow Maya Road ink included in the kit. I also stamped the bird using the red ink.

Next, I added the frilly edges to the inside corner of each yellow star. I stamped the "Happy Day" phrase on a bookplate shape I cut out using my Cricut machine.

The silhouette image of the parade kids from my Cricut cartridge had each child carrying a parade flag. I trimmed off the flags from the image and replaced them using the Maya Road Kraft Flag Trinket Pins from the kit. I pulled out the Jar Stamp from the March Homespun Kit and used the star stamp to add some 4th of July flair to each kraft flag pin. I love the handcrafted feel a few die cuts and a little stamping add to a page!

Thanks for letting me share my creations with you today! I hope you feel inspired to pull out your Noel Mignon kits and get a little crafting in this Memorial Day.

See you again soon!
