May Kit Sneaks
hi guys! i'm back this week sharing a sneak peek at what's coming soon to the next week with the new kit launch! this month (with mother's day happening) I wanted the kit to fun and quirky with a side of mom-love in there too. There's some fun phrase cards and tons of wonderful patterns to play with. Don't miss it– check back for the full release in the shop on the 16th!

I really love the vibrant colors in this kit, so I couldn't resist picking this pattern–which utilizes one of the 9x12 paper designs–as my background for this page. I printed off a large 9" wide photo and trimmed around the graffiti art to make a fun edge and then attached the photo with pop dots, leaving room for a journaling tag to pop out on the right hand side. I then sliced some of the pattern out with my x-acto knife and popped a black and white stripe pattern behind it for some dimension. To finish it off, I grabbed one of the specialty speech bubbles from the kit with the word love in it and adhered that above the photo and tag–also on some pop dots. I just LOVE how this turned out.

PROJECT LIFE SNEAKS
this week in my project life, i split a photo of flying from LAX to NYC and printed it as a single image, I used a 'hello' speech bubble from the kit and finished it off with some thickers at the bottom to denote the trip in a graphic way. For the right side of the spread, I finished documenting the rest of the week in 2x2" photos. One of my favorite parts about my kit over some others is the various sized cards you get. I just love having 2x2 and 3x3 at my disposal for those weeks where I'm inundated with photos to fit. I grabbed g4 of the 2x2 cards from the kit to top off the colorful array of photos that i had and filled one pocket with the 'love' speech bubble (there are other sayings as well, I just found the love perfect for both my scrapbook layout and this spread–you'll get two of each phrase!). I love how the kit colors pulled some more color out of the page and really brightened the right side up.
I'M SO GLAD YOU STOPPED BY!
