Erin, Beverly, Camilla, & Nadia Share their Designs

Hi there.  We are back today to share more layouts with you created by our design team using the June kit, which we have available in our store.  These four layouts show off the beautiful blues and greens in the kit.

Boys from the Woods by Erin Blegen

I love that my two boys get to grow up in the woods like I did. There's so much to learn and see- it's a harder life by some standards, but I think it really is a good one. I love the idea of my boys growing into "manly men", lol!! Boys who can hunt and fish and show you the best places to do so :)- boys who can drive a truck, a 4-wheeler, split firewood, and aren't afraid to get their hands dirty...
I really really love that this kit gives such a great opportunity to scrap both masculine and feminine layouts. I definitely took the "naturistic" route with this one, perfect for my photos and for scrapping about my boys- and the usual outdoor pictures I tend to take since we spend a lot of our time outside. And the green/blue shades I've used here are perfect for keeping my photos in color, rather than having to revert to black and white.

A fantastic photo of my niece, Maja. I framed the photo with different flowers from the flower add-ons. To match the red berries in the corner I added a red border underneath the photo.

Better With Love by Beverly Sams

My nieces continue to amaze me with how beautiful and smart and kind they are~ I like to think this one takes after me....she's an artist, too, and a very talented one at that! For this page, I used one of my favorite Martha Stewart punch-around-the-page punches and distressed it slightly.

In addition to the main kit:

Beauty Blooms from Within by Nadia Cannizzo 

For this layout I went down another direction in regards to colour.  I decided to use the neutral colours of the papers together with the greens to add some colour.  I used many of the die cuts here to create a layered look at the back of the photo.
