Scrapping for Less August 2019 FOTM Card Kit Reveal

Hi, everyone! It's time to reveal the August 2019 Flavor of the Month card kit from Scrapping for Less! This month's theme is exotic animals and this kit is packed full of the cutest exotic critters! I can't wait to see what everyone makes with this kit! I had so much fun creating my 5 cards! Would you like to be featured on the Scrapping for Less channels? Of course you would! Create with your kit, post your creations on Instagram and Facebook using the hashtag #SFLFOTMexoticanimals!

There's a really fun blog hop happening today to kick off the August 2019 FOTM kit! After you check out my projects you can hop over to Christine's blog and see what she made! If you get lost at any point on the hop you can head back to the Scrapping for Less blog for the full lineup!

As always you can find the kit ingredients and sketches in the "Downloads" tab on the Scrapping for Less website!

There are two levels of kits you can purchase - the Double Dip and the Banana Split. Each of the kits include four collections of goodies, six pieces of colored cardstock, two pieces of white cardstock, and four envelopes. The Banana Split kit includes everything mentioned as well as a bonus pack of goodies!

Here's a quick peek at all 5 cards I made! Just like always - I made one card using each of the collections and one of the four sketches and then a bonus card using ingredients from the Banana Split level kit.

I used products from the first collection to create a card using the third sketch. Whenever I see sketches that have panels of cardstock going down each side I always think of a gate fold card! I altered the sketch slightly to make it fit into my fun fold design and added a die cut oval and the cute Lawn Fawn chameleon!

I created a sparkly shaker card with products from the second collection and first sketch! I backed the shaker with some of the gold glitter cardstock for extra sparkle!

I know the theme is exotic animals, but I fell in love with the flower twine and doily from the third collection! I used the second sketch to create this card and took the sentiment from the bonus stamp set in the Banana Split level kit. Don't worry! I'll use the cute critter from this collection later on!

Collection four has my favorite Scrapping for Less papers EVER! They're GORGEOUS! The metallic accents are faux - but they're so so so realistic! I used the fourth sketch and added my colored image, a foiled tag, and a fabric flower to my card.

Since I didn't use the cute meerkat image from the third collection I decided to use him and more of collection three's patterned papers. I used the "go wild" die cut from the Banana Split extra goody bag and the Chocolate cardstock. Here's my video showing how I made each of these five cards!

Remember that your next stop on the hop is Christine - but if you get lost at any point along the way you can head back to the Scrapping for Less blog for the complete line up! Thanks for joining me! I'll see you soon!
