April Kit

Hi, All!  Mandie here with my layouts for April.  This month's design team kit is AWESOME.  It features fabulous new product from American Crafts & Amy Tangerine.  A little birdie told me Randi & Amy have a limited number of Design Team kits available for sale at the crop this month.  Head to the girls at the crop & don't get left out!  This line is so fun and bright.  It is perfect for spring or girlie layouts.  I have 2 layouts to share with you today & will have a project life post that also incorporates it next week.  I know the rest of the team will have more inspiration throughout the month.  It includes:

For my layouts, I wanted to use a lot of the patterns.  They are just so fun.  I think the best way to use a lot of pattern is to use small amounts.  For the first layout, I used my Silhouette die cut machine and the sketch pen to draw all of the frames.  I also cut out the same pattern on a piece of cardstock; so I could trace the shape to go inside the frames.  Then, I just added fun bits to each frame.  I love the way it turned out!

For this layout, I really wanted the colors of the layout to POP!  So, I mounted it on black cardstock.  I also kept the design super simple to allow this photo to shine.  
 I totally love these die cuts.  Such fun.  I love the watercolor look of them all!
