Here’s a look back at a classic kit from Chelle’s Creation celebrating everyone from the tumbling toddlers to the elite competition gymnasts in our lives. The Gymnastics kit is a collaborative kit by Chelle and mle Card with lots of brightly colored papers and hand rendered elements. But check out the digital scrapbooking pages Chelle’s CT members have created. I’ll show you three pages using the same kit, and you’ll be surprised at the variety.
First, Kimberly has a daughter who does tumbling lessons and classes every day because she is a competition cheerleader in her high school. I’ve seen her in real life, and she is amazing. But, Kimberly’s scrapbooking skills are equal the task of capturing her daughter’s great moves. She used a layer mask on her large photo to mask away the bottom corner of her photo so she could tuck it behind the ribbon on the quick page (sold separately but made from parts and pieces of the kit). She even included a QR code which you can scan with your phone to see a video of her in action. The QR code comes out with a white background, so she used a blending mode on the yellow paper she clipped over the QR code.
Next, Jenny took the same kit and made a layout that has nothing to do with tumbling, and yet the kit is absolutely the best choice. The bright colors and stars in the kit were a perfect match for her children, the stars of her show. I love the flow of movement down the page with the photos arranged vertically on the layered ribbons and clusters of flowers and stars.
Finally, Jenn chose to use the neutral colors in the kit for her page. The tan paper and green stitched border are a great match for her outdoor photos. But the jumbled arrangement of the letters in the title caught my eye. They seem to pop off the page and complement her tumbling subject perfectly.
Here’s a closer look at the kit in the market, but don’t miss the quickies or the bundle for a real bargain.
