Creating With the NJFB Limitless Kit

As a new design team member of the {Not} Just for Boys kit club, I am excited to share my first project with you. I was assigned the Limitless kit which is filled with great pattern paper, vintage ephemera, embellishments, and a title cut. Today, I am sharing my process for the scrapbook page I created of our trip to a Mythbusters museum exhibit.

I was inspired by the August challenge sketch, which I altered a bit to create this one-page layout. There were more photos of my family from this day, but the photos were taken with a blackberry, which was not designed for taking the best photos.

With photo editing software, I was able to remove some of the noise and repair them a bit, but the older cell phones were not designed for taking photos. These photos can still tell a story and that is more imporatnat than having instagram-wothy pictures.

These photos were taken at a time when the schedules were filled, so spending time together as a family enjoying scientific experiments is a memory I wanted to record. From the Limitless Kit, I layered an airplane drawing pattern, some ledger paper, and a soft blue wash behind my photos. The airplane pattern reminded me of the engineering paper that was displayed throughout the exhibit.

From the ephemera kit, I chose some tickets and film reels for the page. Mythbusters was a television series our family enjoyed, and these elements helped reinforce that theme.

For the title, I mixed some stickers with the limitless title cut. All four of our children enjoyed the hands-on science experiments at the event which gave way to so many possibilities. The woodgrain puffy letters from the kit were a perfect addition to this title and allowed me to bring some texture to the page.

Using my Cricut, I cut some gear shapes which I shaded with some Distress Oxide Inks. I layered the gears with a few of the hexagon wood shapes onto various parts of the layout.

In my video, I show you how I added color to the gears and title to make them appear like rusted metal.

Even though the photos are not the best, I was still able to find a few to tell the story of our trip to this exposition.  I was able to combine quite a few components from the Limitless kit and created a page filled with memories using a sketch as inspiration.

I hope that this gave you a few ideas for using these elements. If you were inspired by this project, please share your project and tag misscarriescreations so that I can see what you have made.
