Family Tree is a must have...

I have a ton of things to show you. A ton! These were all made with the September kit over at Jenni Bowlin, which includes a bunch of her new 12x12" papers from the new Family Tree line! Also the mini papers, journaling cards, etc., etc. Wow, I loved this kit. I stayed up late one night, because I couldn't stop creating.
On this little card, I punched the tree from the music sheet paper, which is an exclusive paper you get in the kit! I cut out the little flowers from the 12x12" floral paper. See the 2 bottom strips? Those were just punched with the Upper Crest border punch and added to the bottom of the card. (Tree punch is Fiskars 2" Lever Punch-Tree.)
The "hi" card was made with a Family Tree mini journaling card (green and red). I just layered it over another card (the beige one). I cut the stars from the top of one of the alpha sticker sheets!

I found this saying online, "May your bobbin always be full" and wanted to make a spool shaped card to go with it! I had to cut the journaling card down just a bit because it was too long for my card, but I used the bottom piece of it for a "measuring tape", scrunched it up and added it to my card under the buttons. (red thread and needle not in kit)

Baby Boy card: There were 2 little birds in the kit, so I used one of them to trace onto the back of the yellow patterned paper. I wanted the buttons and thread to create a "nest" sort of feel.

"Reach for the Stars" was one of the first cards I made and I had fun with one of the new Jenni B. paint daubers (the green is called Seed Packet)! They are round on top, so it's super easy to make polkadots with them. After dry, I used a white gel pen to add the sentiment.
I think this card would be really cute for a teacher also, because the dark background reminds me of a chalkboard. Turn it sideways and add a teacher saying instead of the stars!
I better stop there for today, but I have a Halloween mini album to show you also that I made with the add-on kit. I'll be back!
