Another Fun BG Oliver LO!

I love all the monkeys in the Basic Grey Oliver kit so I really wanted to create a LO using them!!
The kit comes with the white embroidery floss I used to for the stitching.
I wanted to create a design to look like the monkeys are swinging and jumping from a rope to go along with my title!

This kit comes with an awesome variety of embellishments, and two sets of letters to create with!!
The embellishments that are included are velvet ribbon, opaline BG pearls, embroidery floss, and a large variety of brads!
If you love this kit grab one quick they are selling fast!!

You can't go wrong...

With Basic Grey you just can't go wrong.  The Oliver kit, available here, is so versatile.  You can go with the classics of black, grey and red as I did in this layout or you can flip the papers and use the more colorful aquas and greens.  The doillie paper was a little intimidating for me at first but once I started using it...I couldn't stop - it adds such a cool look to layouts and cards.  Grab some of this Basic Grey goodness before it's all gone!

More from the BG Oliver kit...

Loved everything included in this kit... including the floss!  I love using whole strands of floss for stitching on my pages!  It's adds texture & dimension without a lot of added weight!

For this first Layout, I used a ruler to create the holes for my stitching...

For this layout, I used one of the stitching templates from Bazzill, which I picked up in the Queen Scraps store to create the pattern for my stitching...
I have more projects to share with you a little later this month!!  TFS & Have A Great Day!

this kit rocks

i do have 2 more to share with you, but i'll do that another day!

for this page i used the week 125 nuts about sketches sketch! isn't it a fun page??!!???!! i cut out the little monkeys and put them on popdots. i ran the ribbon through the xyron and placed it on the page (much easier than sewing those pleats!!!)
I LOVE that the kit has 2 alphas!!!

and for this one i used the 9/5 sunday sketch from the every day scrapper.

i used to hate using sketches, now it's the first thing i grab when it comes time to scrap!
