Coffee + Books with the Homebodies Kit

At long last, it's release day for Feed Your Craft's first full size paper crafting kit, Homebodies, and Brandi and I couldn't be more excited! Brandi has designed a charming collection perfect for documenting your home life, but don't let the theme limit your imagination. Whether you scrapbook, create pocket pages, or make cards, this kit will provide you with plenty of products in cozy colors. Cards to congratulate new home owners, Project Life spreads about your favorite activities when you hibernate, or layouts about what makes your house a home are just a few ideas.

Brandi is sharing her first project over at her blog, and we've invited a special guest designer to further inspire you. Be sure to visit Jil Larson (RESON8ED) on Instagram and see what's she's created. You'll see more projects from all 3 of us while you wait for your kit's arrival in the mail.

When I first saw the Shelve That paper, I knew I wanted to cut out the books from the background. Since I scrap in 9x12, I didn't want to lose any of those darling books. Using the pale blue background that was left over, I matted my photo and added a strip to the top. The polka dot paper, Street Lights On, was the perfect complement to pulling in more of the colors from the books and also, because I love my layers. I used a couple of die cuts from the printable PDF as well as a mini flair.

Thank you to everyone for all of your support as Brandi and I work to bring new products to the shop. The responses we've received have been so amazing and help us to keep on doing what we're doing. Oh, and if you're a mini flair fan, there are a few new sets in the shop as well!

I hope you'll come back tomorrow when I share my second layout that mixes the Homebodies kit with some old and new items from my stash. You'll see just how easy it is to integrate this kit with supplies you already have on hand.
