March kits? That's when I start to look for a hint of Spring. Fresh colours, new products just in from CHA: I couldn't wait to see what Gossamer Blue had in store this month so that I could make a start on a stack of pages about our half term trip to Scotland. And when I opened the box, it was all there! Crisp new paper and invitingly crinkly packages of the very latest from Crate Paper, Pink Paislee and MME. So this is what I made:
In this first page I used some of the smaller prints in the 6x6 Pink Paislee pad to cut butterflies I could combine with the Crate Paper diecut flowers. I wanted to make an Easter page which concentrated on the every day of Easter holidays just before exam time and I found two photos I took in the hotel room while we were away. She's actually lying on the bed, watching tv; but the white wall behind makes a good space for some journaling I typed straight onto the photos.
The "To Do" list is a self inking stamp from Jen Hadfield, found in this month's Bits and Pieces kit.
Next I made a page about a beautiful spot I had first spotted in pictures on Pinterest. When I discovered it was in Edinburgh I made it a must see for our trip.
Dean Village is a wonderful place to take pictures. A passer by even stopped to point me in the direction of the best buildings. Now that's tourist friendly.
When I spotted the Bloom tassels in the Bits and Pieces kit I thought maybe I could combine one with a tartan patterned Life Pages card to give a hint of a kilt.
All my photos weren't going to fit on one page, of course, so I moved on to this one:
which began as an experiment in combining all of my favourite patterns from that 6x6 Pink Paislee pad. The little birds are cut from a sheet of Maggie Holmes paper in the Main Kit and the blue banner at the top is drawn with a couple of swipes of the Dear Lizzy Rub On pens in -yes - the Bits and Pieces kit. I have a favourite add on this month, no doubt about it
and I have more I'd like to do with it. That's my three for now though. All supplies from the beautiful, Spring-y Gossamer Blue March kits.
