"Unbearably Cute" Layout ~ The ScrapRoom Double Shot Kit

Today I am up on The ScrapRoom Blog with a layout I created using the
Echo Park " Petticoats and Pinstripes" Page Kit 
included in the 

Such a fun, colorful, girly collection! I wasn't sure when I first saw the paper with the banners if I wanted to do fussy cut the super cute banners or not since it seemed a little bit busy. I finally decided to use it as it was. The patterns and colors were so easy to layer and the layered stickers that come with the kit were perfect. All products used to create this layout is from the page kit except for the title work and twine. I can't wait to use the rest of the kit to create another page!!!!

All products used to create this layout are from the Page Kit, 
with the exception of the twine and title work

Here's the May Double Shot Kit:

Sharing Two Layouts Today! ~ The ScrapRoom FOTM Kit

Hi All,

I hope  you are all having a fabulous week. I am back  today to share not one, but two layouts I created with the gorgeous 
MME "On Trend 2" Page Kit 
included in 

"It Was a Good Day to Have a Good Day"
 I just love the soft colors and the pops of gold.   
And the fact that is goes so well with photos with lots of green scenery.   
All items used to create this layout and the layout below are from the kit, 
except for the twine and the title work.  

"Happy Girls Are The Prettiest Girls"
This layout was inspired by the 
May "Be Our Guest" Sketch at The ScrapRoom
I used the right side of the sketch and flipped it up.   
Instead of using a large square photo, I used a 6 x 4 photo.

Here is the sketch and if you would like a chance to be our Guest Designer 
in July, why not complete a layout inspired by the sketch and link it up with us.

May "Month In Review" Recipe Card ~ The ScrapRoom

Hey there!
I am up on The ScrapRoom Blog again today, sharing the double page layout
I created for the May Recipe Card "Month In Review, 
using the Bella Blvd " Let's Go" Page Kit included in the 

Although this is a travel collection, I was able to design and put together a layout that can be used for
travel  or any other thene,   The tags were fussy cut from the "Baggage Claim" Patterned Paper as well as "Just the Ticket" used in the embellishment cluster on the right side of the page. I used one of the fussy cut tags on the right page to add a little flavor to the page and break up the photos.  
All items used to create this page is from the kit, except the twine, star brad and the Thickers used for the title work which are all from my personal stash.  Oh, and the Simple Stories Phrase Stickers are from a previous TSR kit. 
This is just one of the fabulous page kits included in the May FOTM Kit
