The ScrapRoom Doubleshot ~ AC "Better Together" Page Kit Layouts

Today I am sharing two layouts I created using the awesome
American Crafts "Better Together" Page Kit
included in 

"My Three Heartbeats"
This page kit was a perfect choice to use with these “happy” photos of my niece and three great-nephews. The bright vibrant colors scream happiness and I love the fun patterns as well as the versatility of this kit. I had a lot of fun creating with this kit. 
All items used to create my layout are from the kit with the exception of the following: title work from my personal stash, twine from the June FOTM Kit, and the phrase stickers are from a previous TSR kit.

My second layout was inspired by The ScrapRoom's
June Freaky Fast Formula
"Loyalty Is Everything"
I was able to quickly put this layout together using the formula and the awesome vibrant colored papers and super fun embellishments in this kit. I wasn't sure what photos I was going to use with this kit but when I read a post on FB my niece had posted about something her daughter said to her, which is the journaling I typed on the upper right journaling card, I knew this was the perfect kit to 
document this memory for my niece. 
All I added from my stash was the twine, title work and the butterfly was from a previous 
ScrapRoom kit. Everything else you see is included in the kit.

Here is the formula
Why not whip up a layout using the formul and share it with us at The ScrapRoom.
We would love to see what you create!   
You can also scraplift one of the layouts created by any of the designers based on this formula. 
 Once your layout is completed, upload it to

If you complete a layout for this challenge as well as any of the other June challenges posted in the TSR Subscriber's and Fan Group, 
you will be entered into our June prize drawing for some scrap goodies. 

Loving this kit? 
Why not take a moment to visit The ScrapRoom Store and check out this kit as well as the other amazing June kits.
Thank you for stopping by and make sure you stop by The ScrapRoom 
and check out the kits and all of the amazing ideas the team
created using this month's awesome kits.

"June Month In Review" Layout ~ The ScrapRoom Recipe Card


Today on The ScrapRoom Blog my June Month In Review layout is being featured along with the other three June Recipe Card layouts.

Here's the layout I created using the Echo Park "Petticoats and Pinstripes" Page Kit.
The papers and embellishments in the kit are masculine themed but I was able to create a non-masculine themed layout with kit and I love the result.
All items used to create my page are from the kit with the exception of the twine, from my personal stash.   The cardstock stickers are from the June Embellishment Add-On kit.
The doily and the title work were cut us the Silhouette and the Cricut:

Each month at The ScrapRoom the customers receive exclusive access to four Recipe Cards, complete with a full-color photo and step-by-step instructions for completing a double page layout  with each of the four layout kits included din the Flavors of the Month Kit.   With The ScrapRoom’s “Flavors of the Month” Kit, you’ll enjoy the scrapbooking products that you crave, along with ideas and instructions to help you “get more pages done…”

"Hello Summer Fun" Layout ~ The ScrapRoom Flavors of the Month Kit

Hello there!
Back on the blog today sharing a fun layout I created using 
The ScrapRoom's
PhotoPlay "Summer DayDreams" Page Kit
included in the 
"This page kit just screams FUN! The patterns, colors and embellishments are just so bright and playful. to create my background, I used a large WRMK circle punch and backed the punched base with yellow cardstock (to add a little sunshine)! And to add a little dimension to my page, I adhered raw chipboard to the back of all of the cardstock stickers. 
I have more photos just waiting to get scrapped with the rest of this yummy page kit! 
A simple quick page, but I love how it turned out! 
All items used to create my page are found in the page kit."

Here's the layout I created:
"I love all of the wonderful soft colors and wonderful designs in this page kit which highlights this lovely photo of my granddaughter. 
I fussy cut the flowers and leaves from the 07 paper and die cut “girl” from the 02 paper for my title work. All items are from the page kit with the exception of the cardstock sticker in the upper left hand corner which is from the June Embellishment Add-On Lit and the following items were pulled from my personal stash: twine, sequins, and Thickers."
