Valerie's Take on the April Kit

Welcome to the weekend!  I hope yours is off to great start.  Tomorrow we will be revealing our April Kit, but before that, I'd like to share a couple of layouts that I created using the kit.

I was pleased to read in Bonnie's post that she felt liberated when she discovered that "purple" really is not difficult to use.  Purple tends to get a bad rap when it comes to scrapbooking.  The April Kit has some amazing shades of dark purple that will work will with any style of scrapbooking.  But this kit is not just shades of purple..... you have probably noticed from the other designers, there are several different looks that can be achieved with this kit. 

For this layout, I used the beautiful Blue Fern Studios Small Circle Flourish frame that was in the Embellishment Add-on.  I also used several items from the Magnifique Mixed Media kit to create this look.  For the dark color accents, I used the Art Anthology Sorbet and a stencil, both found in the MMM kit (which has sold out).

The beautiful blue tones in this paper collection are perfect with the various shades of brown.  They compliment each other so well.  The center of the paper is open to create your own background or leave it as is. 

Be sure to visit us again tomorrow to see photos of our entire April Kit!
