Fourth Tuesday with Diva Katrina Hunt

Hey everyone, it's Katrina here with my projects for the month!  It seems like the month has just flown by and I looked at the calendar and went, "oh my gosh I have a blog posting due"!  

I love working with all the collections and every time I think I know what my favorite it, it changes!  The projects I am sharing today are with the Messages collection kit. 

I decided to do an 8.5 x 11 layout.  I just wanted to do a simple and clean layout and that size works perfect for me to do that. 



I used a scallop circle punch to make my border here with the houndstooth paper and then just added one of the hearts from the punch out page.


I wanted to accent the journaling card and I went to my standby-twine!  I also used one of those Cute as a Button burlap buttons that I love so much.


And these were in the booth at CHA, my altered books.  Nikki asked me if I wanted to do them and Messages was the perfect collection to do them with!

I used matte medium gel to adhere all the paper to the books and I also used a layer of it to seal the books after I got them finished.

 I used a border punch on each side of the paper that covers the seam to give some detail to it.  Then, I added some of the cut-ups on each of the books.  I didn't want them to have too much stuff on them, just enough to make them interesting!

That is all from me today!  We have a lot of fun stuff coming up on the blog later this week.  Including one more Diva posting for the month and then a fun blog swap with Glue Arts!  Be sure to check back by!

And if you feel like it, stop by my blog sometime!!
