And check out these coordinating add ons that perfectly compliment our March scrapbook kit!
 
 
 
 
I swear, every month  I start off with I love this kit!! Well, that's because I simply DO! This kit was no exception!! I love to scrap with dark rich colors. Add in a light paper and it makes it soft. That's how versatile this kit is as you will see in my projects.
 
I love the color combination of red, black and gray. It's elegant with bit of an edge. I did some deep distressing, masking with molding paste, machine stitching and lots of layering. I like my pages nice and thick so I have a huge collection of different size and thickness of foam squares. I digitally created the butterflies, Iron Maiden, to match the gray in the Prima Stationer's Desk Paper. You can also find similar stick pins at my Etsy Shop. 
 For my second project I made a canvas. We got the this Tim Holtz District Market Canvas in Tech/Project Kit months ago...and....yeah...I've been hoarding it!! I figured it was time to use it to make room for other stuff I'm going to hoard..lol!
 This is my take on the sketch. Instead of the line across the page, I settled for some distressed lacing. The red roses are from my stash. They weren't the deep red like in the papers. So, I painted them with Mel's Diner Glimmermist to get them the right rich shade of red. The butterflies, Rose Romantique, are another set of I created to match the kit. You can find them at my LittleScrapShop.
 Here is the monthly sketch
