My first Noel Mignon kit: 4 layouts and Counting

I am in love with Noel Mignon scrapbook kits. Yes, absolutely in love. I received my first kit less than 2 weeks ago and I am loving every single bit of it. The May kit, Country Lane, is absolutely gorgeous. It has both hipster and romantic elements and includes 20 different patterned papers from companies, such as; Elle's Studio, Crate Paper, Dear Lizzy Lucky Charm, and Pink Paislee. It also includes a very wide variety of fun embellishments, 2 complete alphabets, and a gorgeous Elle's studio stamp set. By a ton of embellishments, I mean enough for every single piece of paper, (and that is a lot for someone that is very embellishment-happy like myself.)

As of this moment, I have completed 4 layouts and I am loving the kit even more with every layout I create. All of the layouts feel different and I constructed 2 boy and 2 girl layouts with this kit, plus I have probably 70% of it still left! I did not have to use very much from my stash and what I did use was largely leftover bits and pieces. Of course, I also used journaling pens, adhesive, scissors, and a paper trimmer.

Now onto the layouts:

Layout #1: "All This"


*For this layout I used the Serendipity Stamp Set by Elle's Studio

 Layout #2: "The Best of Buddies"



*This layout is largely Basic Grey Hipster
Layout #3: "Pure Joy With You Always"




*This layout uses these items by Elle's Studio: Chevron 
Serendipity paper and stamp set*

Layout #4:  "3 Friends"


*the only items not included in kit are Studio Calico wood veneer stars, 
1 My Mind's Eye brad, mist, and a small piece of Studio Calico vellum patterned paper.

I am very, VERY impressed with this kit. It is currently sold out, but later this month Noel will have another great kit for sale. The kits are pricer than a normal kit from other kit clubs in the $35-$40 range, but you also get 2 1/2 times the paper and probably 3 times the embellishments at least. I believe it is completely worth the price and I am so glad to be starting a 6 month subscription soon.

***I was in no way paid or given product to endorse this company. This post is just my honest opinion about a great scrapbook kit company that is out there that you may not have heard about yet***

What have you been creating lately? Anyone else trying to finish up all kinds of challenges for NSD last Saturday. I am almost done with most of the challenges at 2 Peas and I still have a few Studio Calico challenges left, and I still hope to complete the Paper Bakery Sketch. What can I say, I like the challenge.  Also, I have some exciting news, I found out a couple of days ago that I won the May kit from Scapbook Circle on their instagram contest. I was just chosen at random, along with the person I tagged. I can't wait to dive into that kit next week, and of course, blog about it later on.

I will be back on Saturday with a Project Life share and next week I will be blogging about Scrapbook Layouts, Project Life, Cards made with Lily Bee products, Scrapbook Organization Thursday, a review of Scrapbook Circle's May kit, and I hope another Project Life layout. Whew! That is a lot of happy in one long-winded sentence. 

Until next time, Happy Scrappin'
