Papers included, Side A
Love these B sides!
Here is how I started my layout: The left of this next photo shows previous 8-1/2 x 11" pages that I wanted to redo in 12 x 12 size, along with the reprints of the focal photos that I want to use this time around.
I chose this combination of paper for the page:
Oh, and check out January's Pagemaps at pagemaps.com; their sketches this month are SO fitting for this paper kit! This is the one that I selected:
Normally I don't utilize stamps for layouts, however, I had a Hero Arts stamp set with a cupcake motif that was perfect for this particular page! It was time to practice with my Bic Mark-Its (plus a Copic blender pen). I am not a alcohol marker pro whatsoever, so in this case I stamped the image three times so that I could practice color combinations and choose the one that worked best.
The complete layout: This page also includes items from the RSVP Mixed Brads, available separately from the paper kit (but a must-have!):
Here are some closeups of the embellishment areas. Aren't the pinwheels cute? Oh, and notice what I did with the title - I was out of "E's" so I substituted with "3's" turned backward. It fits the whimsical feel of the layout, don't you think?
Have you had a chance to use this paper kit yet? If so, leave your blog page link in the comments below so that we can see your creations!
Come back tomorrow for a special announcement and on Saturday to see a super simple birthday card that was created from the RSVP kit!
