Bits & Pieces Giveaway

Welcome to the weekend everyone!  What better way to start the weekend than to offer a giveaway.  Leslie has gathered the Bits & Pieces from her April Kit, "Victorian Roses", featuring the beautiful paper from Pion Designs Alma's Sewing Room collection.

Our design team member, Erin, has used the kit to it's fullest by using these muted papers with pops of color from the embellishments and flowers:

"3 Bugs" by Erin Blegen

There is something that just truly warms my heart when I see all three of my kids together like here, snuggled up in my bed watching a movie one morning. It is a rare moment that they can all be like this- no fighting or jumping around- I had to capture it! And I really tried to tie in all of the colors offered in this kit, to create a bit of a timeless feel. 

"Together" by Erin Blegen

The younger of my two boys, Gunner, is always looking to what his older brother Wyatt is doing. Here Wyatt was showing him how to find and pick blueberries last summer. I love capturing genuine moments like these.

I thought the blues in this kit were very fitting for a masculine layout. For the bottom section of my page, I used the Prima packaging from the resist alphas, as well as some of the flower packaging. Re-purposing is always such a great way to stretch product!

So, are you inspired to create with Leslie's Bits & Pieces?  Here's what she is giving away, which includes items from the kit, the flower add-on, and the embellishment add-on.  Since these are Leslie's Bits & Pieces, the winner will receive partial packages of embellishments, as well as partial pieces of patterned paper.
