JBS Mercantile: Mid Month Check In

Technically it's past the middle of the month. However, it's never too late to pop in and share a little inspiration. June's kits are stunning!  As I shuffle through them, I find my creative mojo returning to me once again.

This month, JBS Mercantile is focusing on summer memories. I have been focusing on getting some of my past summer memories documented.When I saw the butterfly paper, I knew I wanted to recount the tale of taking my son to a butterfly garden. He would gently open his hands to let each butterfly lightly sit upon his fingers.

The flowers in this month's patterned paper selection were very detailed. Instead of fussy cutting the whole flower and the greenery at the same time, I chose to cut them in separate steps.This allowed me to layer the flowers and the leaves for a bit more dimension.After fussy cutting some flowers, I used glossy accents to make them more detailed.

Summer is just getting started. I am excited to already have to July kits in hand. Let's just say the kits are so fabulous that there is no shortage of inspiration. Meanwhile, stay tuned to see if I get a few more projects out of the June Kits.
