This months Creative kit inspired me to try out Gelatos! I've owned a few for at least a year; even played around with them a tiny bit; but I really didn't know what to do with them and was afraid to give them a try. I'm guessing you might have some tools in your stash that you feel the same way about. So what finally convinced me to give it a try? My good friend and fellow design team member Kristin Greenwood recently made a layout using Gelatos. Her demonstration convinced me to give it a try. That along with the perfect piece of paper in the Creative kit was all the inspiration I needed. Yes, this is my tutorial but she really deserves the credit for this tutorial because she is the one who taught me about Gelatos. Here is the Creative kit paper I started wih:

Hello MCS Blog Hoppers! The hop is over but stay tuned .... the winners will be announced Monday. Check back at www.mycreativescrapbook.blogspot.com to see if you are one of the winners. A special thank you to each of you for leaving such wonderful comments regarding my scrapbook pages. I love making layouts but I'm always a little nervous to share them on the design team gallery. I'm sure you'll agree - the design team makes amazing layouts. I just hope there are a few people how like my layouts too. I have those friends who tell me I shouldn't care what others think. Ultimately, I do make the pages for myself but I do love getting the compliments. I share my pages with my husband but he doesn't get excited like other scrappers do. I'd love to see your kit work too. It can be your interpretation of a design team members layout or something entirely different. You can copy. I did that all the time before I joined the design team. I became the scrapper I am because of the design team. I learned so much just copying their layouts. Lastly, be sure to keep an eye on the sketch site, www.mycreativesketches.blogspot.com for a new sketch coming up in a few days. Also, my tutorial will be published on the MCS blog later this month but will be published here on the 18th. I'll be sharing my design tips related to this layout.
