Honey I Shrunk The Kit #8

Hey friends, guess what ... it's time for another day out with the honeys
 and I'm the lucky host for this one! It was a little daunting thinking 
of what to put together having received such wonderful kits 
from the others! In the end I went with a

Monster Birthday theme

There's a picture and list of my goody pack at the end of the post
Here's our team and I absolutely adore playing along with this 
wonderful bunch of talented ladies!
Hazel Hodgkins: Hazel's Paper Designs
Sarah Gray: Funky Fossil Designs
Shona Chambers: Twine Around
Sandie Munroe: London Days
Sarah Platt: Sazzle Dazzle Crafts ... that's ME!

I had a go at creating a Northern Lights (of a fashion) night sky using Distress Inks
 with multiple planets, spaceships and rockets 'whizzing' by, viewed though the
Stitched Framed 'film strip' die. Adding a couple of extra images from
the CBS set to create a BG and a wrap of twine adds a little more interest.

Well I just can't resist going overboard with silliness when you've got these
cute little monsters in tow! I coloured them with promarkers and set them
inside the circle frames which are filled with clear seed bead or bubbles with
a starry background paper from the Doodlebug papers!!!

I just had to use the googlie eyes somewhere and I also had a bit more of the 
'Northern Sky' panel left so used it as another background here for my googlie
aliens sat on the 'moon' as a space ship zooms by!

You can probably tell I was running out of ideas here but decided to go
full on vibrant and 'busy' with the design paper and mini images, another
googlie eye and I wanted to showcase the sentiment in particular.

I had a lot of fun making these and I'm going to have even more fun
as I zip around the other honeys' blogs to see how they played with my kit!

So here's a little piccy of what I sent around the world which included:

       Clearly Besotted Stamps & Dies: Out of This World, Eye on You, Blast Off
       Lawn Fawn Stamps & Dies: Monster Mash
 Pretty Pink Posh Peek-a-boo & Stitched Frame dies
Doodlebug:Sprinkles, Bakers Twine & Design Paper
Misc. Googlie eyes

As always thanks for calling by and hope you enjoyed
a giggle looking at these crazy creations!



  1. Totally amazing set of cards, you had so many ideas, love all the sponged backgrounds you used and all the vibrant colours, so embrassed at my poor attempts!

  2. Fab designs - great use of apertures.

  3. Sarah what a fantastic collection of cards. All brilliant and gave me heaps of ideas. I bought my first outer space stamp set to play with.

  4. These are spectacular, Sarah!! I love your inked spacescapes behind the apertures on the first and third cards and the vibrant pops of colour you have used on the second card. All of your designs are so bold and bright and definitely made me smile :) It was a great kit to play with and now that I have seen everyones cards I have ideas for the elements that I didn't use. Thanks for the inspiration x

  5. Sorry I'm so late with my comments, had major computer problems thankfully after my post went live. I loved this kit so much, it was so much fun. Your cards are fabulous and I'm so in love with your galaxy blending (way better than mine). I have a few little boys with birthdays soon so these will be very much loved. Thank you so much for putting this together, it was brilliant!!!! Mwah!

  6. I just LOVE how you used your kit, Sarah! That inked filmstrip in the first one looks incredible. The monster peepholes in the second is so cute. Love the composition of the rocket ship one also, and adore your use of that cute patterned paper in the last one. Thank you so much for sending me s scond kit to make up for the MIA one!! I enjoyed it SO much!! I hoe mine makes the grade...
