Hi! Thank you for stopping by! I’m sharing one of the layouts I have created with the April main kit. I love when faux wood paper shows up at my doorstep in one of Ria’s kits. I had this super sweet photo of my 2 boys with their 3 little cousins taken at my parents’ farm and thought I’d work with it.
Everything featured here comes in the main kit! Those letters and numbers are part of a Thicker’s chipboard pack! I know, right! I LOVE Thickers and these especially because they coordinated so well with everything else. I layered paper strips and trim strips from the sheets that come in the kit and added embellishments. I finished it off with gold paint and black mist.
As you can see in the first photo of the full layout, I am a huge fan of layering. All those strips are just pieces that are cut of the bottom of patterned paper! A lot of my scrappy friends don’t save scraps if they are less than a half of a sheet of paper. I save anything I can fit in my little Kaiser Craft pouches because you never know when you might need to tuck a little color in here or there! Resourceful I say!
