The earthy tones mixed with pinks and blacks make the paper in this kit to die for! And, the project kit is out of this world with the new Tim Holtz Assemblage clock!

I hope you are enjoying what you've seen so far along the hop! Here's what I did with this month's kit:

"Serenity": A Video Anatomy


So this month, it was my turn to do our monthly feature, "Anatomy of a Layout", and I decided to do a video anatomy for fun. :) A cool aspect of this assignent is that we only use the main kit to create the anatomy page, so I used a little bit of EVERYTHING that came in the main kit. You can see the video here: VIDEO

Let us know what you think about doing a "video anatomy"!

Altered Clock

So, I have been dying to get my hands on the Tim Holtz Assemblage Clock, and Krissy was able to put it in a tech kit for us as soon as they became available!!!!! I love this clock "shadow box" as you can do so many different things with them. I decided to include a mini album on the inside. Here's some pics of my finished clock:









And, of course, being part of the education team, I made a video so you can see how I pulled this off:

So, that's what I've done with this kit so far. :) Thanks for stopping by, and hop on!
