September's The Sampler Kit is Awesome!

I only have one word for this month's The Sampler KitAWESOME!  I dug into this kit and never put it down!  The colors are amazing and the handmade embellishments add such a personal touch! Here are some projects I made with the kit-

Enjoying these colors, I created this layout
inspired by a layout by Jenessa Franco:

These colors are so awesome that I used them for a
color combo challenge I hosted at Colorful Creations:

And I couldn't help but to make some beautiful cards with the MME Paper. 
I used the TH Distress Stain dabber on the flowers and on the butterflies: 

 (card sketches from Pagemaps)

I also made another layout  from this kit for a sketch challenge that The Sampler Kit is having next week, so stay tuned!!! :)

 Happy Scrappin'!
