Hello scrappy friends! Nicole here and today I'm sharing my first layout with the May kits! This months kit features a lot of softer colors from Crate Paper All Hear collection. I'm not going to lie, I was a little intimidated by this collection at first because I'm a bold and colorful type of scrapper. However, I find now after working with this line on a few projects that it just might be my new favorite style!!!! Along with the May main kit, I also received the color kit this month which is the beautiful water color kit from Amy Tangerine. On today's project, I used them both to create this cute layout featuring our new pup, Odie!
Let me start by saying this dog has a personality that I've never seen in an animal before! He has such character and is so funny! This photo was taken on Easter Sunday and he was wearing his cute bow tie. After all the playing and visitors, he fell asleep on my dad's lap and was sleeping in no time! I just thought how he fell asleep was so stinkin cute and funny!
Ok, so on to the layout! I loved the rainbow paper for the background and knew I wanted to match that with a larger rainbow. I pulled out the new Amy Tangerine watercolors from the color kit and created my own unique rainbow. Once dry, I cut each color of the rainbow out and stitched it with my sewing machine.
Once adhered, I sketched and cut two clouds from some off white paper I had in my stash. I stitched it the same way. Once those two main elements were glued to my page, I stitched around the outside boarder of my page to tie it all together.
Next, I added my photo, layers and only a few embellishments because I really wanted the rainbow and cloud to be the star of the show, next to the photo itself. Lastly, I used the pink Thickers in the main kit to create my title. I didn't think it really stood out, so I put it on white cardstock and then trimmed around it. I think this finishes it off nicely!
Thanks so much for joining me today! I can't wait to see what you create with the May kits!!
