Just popping in to share some more projects i made using this month's kit from Truly Madly Crafty. If you're wanting to see the other projects i made you can check out this post on the TMC blog. This kit is perfect for spring projects and these photos from a trip to Exbury Gardens in May 2010 sprung to mind when i first saw the kit. i really like to use product in a way that supports the theme of my page. The honeycomb pattern and the bees & butterflies all symbolise spring time and flowers to me.
i have to say i am becoming a big fan of 6x6 paper pads. i really like the smaller pattern, they are perfect for card making and Project Life. Because the pattern was scaled down i was able to use the hexagon's from the 'honey blue' paper as an accent on their own. Maxine always sends me the kits beautifully wrapped in tissue paper and string. i managed to sneak both those items into this layout.
i used my craft knife on the 'Be the Best' paper to cut out some of the hexagons and then backed them with the kraft coloured graph pattern on the B side of the 'Ephemera' paper. This one of my favourite techniques to use lately.
As there was ribbon and washi tape included in the kit i wanted a way to incorporate them into the design of my layout. i created a mat for my photo using those supplies along with some pattern paper scraps i had left over. i liked the result so much i also made a card using the same design.
Happy Easter to you, i hope that you are able to enjoy a break and spend time with your families!
