Guest Star Kerry Lynn Yeary!

Hi everyone!

I'm Kerry Lynn Yeary, but everyone calls me kL and i live in beautiful Sonoma, California with my husband and our two beautiful children, who we affectionately call "the littles". I am so happy to be able to share some work with you using the newest JBS release. Just like you I am {and have forever been} a lover of everything Jenni Bowlin. Not just because I share a passion with her for everything vintage, but also because Jenni is such a kindred spirit. She has such a wonderful heart and is always so inspiring and supportive to others in the paper arts industry.

You can view more of my work and see snippets into my life on my blog live.craft.learn.

I love making eclectic layouts that include fun vintage embellishments, like on "believer". I also love including pieces from packaging as you can see here with the mini cutouts from the back of the journal card packaging, it's a great way to stretch your supplies and use every piece possible.

for this layout i really wanted a fun feel while making sure that the focus was on the sweet photo of my little riding bikes in our backyard. i love adding stitching to layouts and although my machine decided to fight me a little while sewing the title down i decided to keep it as it adds a funky aspect to the lo, something i always love to incorporate.

i adore the new JBS banner stickers but i'm always trying to figure out how to use things like this in more ways than what they were initially intended for, as you can see here when i used the flags to create a flower motif instead.

this wreath actually came about accidentally as i was using my new slice to create some banner tags for a layout idea i had with the mini playdate paper stack. i had set three banners that i had cut with my slice on the table and walked away for a day and when i came back i saw them in a semi-circle and realized they would make a beautiful paper wreath. i all i needed was to cut some more, mount them on a hand-cut circle base and add the flower buttons and butterflies.

Thanks for the inspiration Kerry Lynn!
