Hello again, Mary-Ann here with a layout of the "other girl" in the house!

If you remember my comments on my last layout, I mentioned that I am surrounded by boy stuff.  So, I took this opportunity to create a layout of my pup, Flo and to use up some of the amazing pink and gold included in this months Main Scrapbooking Kit and Add-on.  

For the colors on the base of my layout, I used Heidi Swapp Color Shine.  I sprayed a little of each color in a small glass bowl, watered it down a bit and used a large paintbrush to smear the colors across the page.  Applying them over the top of each other created additional colors that I did not expect but loved.  

I punched out the circles from one of the papers in the kit.  Layered them on another circle and machine stitched down the center.  I then lifted them lightly to get a dimensional look.  

Thank you for taking a peek at my project.  See you soon.

Hello friends! Stephanie here with my final post for the month of May! Where has this year gone already? The design team had a great time with this May kit! We hope you did, too! Make sure to share your work in the forum so we can all see what you've been up to!

This super cute layout features a few of my favorite things! This beautiful Cienna paper line by Elle's Studio, those Amy Tan tags, and of course my best friend, Julie. It came together with ease after the layering was finished! I simply situated my embellies and added those gold Thickers with a little splash of Heidi Swapp Black Color Shine. 

Just a friendly reminder to run, don't walk as soon as those June kit's are released! A little birdie told me they are perfect for summer and won't stick around for long! 

Happy Monday!
