this is our kind of Friday night

The JBS Mercantile November Papercrafting kit was full of Jenni's new Red and Black collection, plus other awesome treats, like cardstock feathers, a cool diploma seal mask, red polka dot washi tape, and vintage price cards.

Here are my two big girls on a pretty typical Friday night... all cozied up on the couch downstairs with us, with books and a laptop, just quietly hanging out until well past their normal bedtime. :) So love that they are big enough to be able to do this, and not so big that they still WANT to do this!

I randomly stuck down the letter stickers so they were all a bit off-kilter. The confetti pieces in the background were left over scraps that fell as I was cutting out the diploma seal I had misted onto cream cardstock. I used my new JBS "ticket please" Fiskars border punch to make a tiny little journalling block. This punch is a lot of fun, and I've already used it on three layouts since I received it. It was one of those items I wasn't sure I would use often, but now that I have it I am so glad I do, because it is a fun alternative to my usual border punches.

I made a fair ribbon by pleat-folding a piece of paper from the Red/Black mini pattern sheet and making it into a rosette. I misted the diploma seal mask included with the JBS November Papercrafting kit with October Afternoon Sprinkler in Robot Blue. I love the way this pale blue-grey pairs with the bright red and black with this line. I finished off the fair ribbon with a crumpled piece of gold tissue paper, a kraft bow, a JBS white rhinestone stair, and a piece of aqua baker's twine
Here is another little piece punched with the JBS Ticket Please punch. This time I date stamped it, and embellished with those wonderful little star stickers that are included in the skinny alpha letter sheets. 

The rest of the page was super simple -- just layered the Instagram print, the 4x4 clock paper from the mini pattern sheet, a cardstock JBS feather, the red chevron bag included in the kit and a bit of tape!

P.S. Don't forget to stop in and enter my give-away for a new Jenni Bowlin Studio Writer stamp
