Project life | Week 27 | Feed Your Craft : Glass Half Full

For the first time this week I am trying a layout with a printable kit that I purchased from Feed Your Craft. I have lusted after the Feed Your Craft kits since I first stumbled across them a year or so ago but have yet to try them. I am just far to tight to pay for shipping from outside the UK.

Elise’s physical kits sell out very quickly because they are so darn lush so I decided to try digital and see how I got on. I went for the “Glass Half Full” kit as the bright colours and suns were perfect for this layout, that I happen to be documenting in my up to date 2018 album, hazah to me!

Once purchased the kit was ready to download in seconds and I received the link to my email address as well as a link on the purchase page. The die cuts come grouped together on a page for easy printing. There was a file of digital stamps that I didn’t really use much in this layout but am looking forward to experimenting with on future layouts.

This is how my pages turned out, you may notice a lack of title card due to the fact that I am crafting from home and all my alpha stickers and stamps are at the studio, I’ll add them in later haha. I could have created a title page in the silhouette studio and printed it but by the time I realised I had everything printed and just wanted to crack on with this beautiful kit.

This is one of my favourite cards, I love the floral die cut and used the offcuts on the opposite corner. I worried that it would clash with the label on the card underneath but I think it compliments it.

Another favourite of mine, the cup and lemon are such fun embellishments they really made this card pop.

I used embellishment clusters along with enamel dots on these cards to create visual triangles to draw your eye around the page, I tried to select dots that complimented the colours in the cards and I think they worked out pretty well.

The next time I use this, or another, printable kit (and there will be a next time for sure) I  will put a bit more time into the planning stage and use some of the digital stamps on the photos and cards before printing them. I’d also use thicker, better quality card stock. The card I used for this was a cheap pack from Amazon and it tends to suck all the colour into the card making the colours less vibrant.

If you’d like to see a tutorial of how I convert the images to cut files or how I use the digital stamps leave me a comment and I will look to filming that for you.
