I’m so excited this month to be a guest designer for Birds of a Feather Kit Co. I had designed for BOAF last year and was thrilled when Amy, the owner, invited me back to work with the March kit. I tell you: I was given a great month for my stint because this kit is jam packed with beauties from Authentique and My Mind’s Eye.
I hadn’t worked with Authentique before. I was so impressed with the beautiful papers. Not only did they look good, but they felt great too. The kit included the Genuine collection and the denim themed papers were easy to mix and match. The nice heavy weight of this paper made me think of winter and I had this photo of my son as a baby in a knit hat, all cozy in his stroller, for an afternoon at the park. So I played on the winter theme. Just pretend those little flowers on the white paper are snowflakes, will ya?
The background is one sheet of paper, Dependable. I used the A side (navy side) of Dependable for the outer frame, then carefully cut out the inner frame and flipped it to the B side (white side). I used a square of cardstock in between to hide where I had cut the paper, then stitched it all back together. I loved that the stiped paper in the kit (used as a banner here) mimicked the stripe in my son's stroller. Perfect! The Webster's trim is from a previous kit. It looked so cozy and was perfect here.
When my son was a baby, we nicknamed him, "Cheeks." I think you can see why, lol.
The March Birds of a Feather kit proved to be the most popular kit in the history of the club, selling out in less than 48 hours. This is a photo collage of the kit that BOAF sent me.
