Try again... April MSS kit layouts...

argh! I have such a hard time making my posts look the way I want them too, and I just gave up trying to do both kits in one post... so here's post #2 for the day.

I'm super excited about the April "Bloom Zoom" kit at MSS this month, because I designed the stamp!!! It's one I've tried to find forever (cardboard stamped journaling lines) and I had so much fun using it! The papers in the kit this month are so bright and cheery, I smiled just looking at them sitting out on my desk... Making Memories, MOD, Scenic Route and Cherry Arte. There are two full sheets of rub-ons plus the alphabet stickers, some ribbon and buttons and acrylic butterflies for good measure. I have one more layout sitting on my desk (I'm stuck and am waiting out the block... hopefully it passes soon). Here's what I have so far (Cross Country and butterfly card were based on a sketch by Janelle Richmond):

And make sure you check out what the other MSS girls created!!!

April BYOM layouts...

I love designing with kits because it takes all the guess work out of things. All I have to do is find some pictures to go with them... all the hard (time-consuming) work of picking fun co-ordinating papers and elements is done for me! I had so much fun this month with my kits.

Bring Your Own Memories features Fancy Pants "About a Boy" this month, and Carmen and Krystn mixed in a little Doodlebug and other goodies for good measure. So many fun papers in this kit, and I really liked the transparancy too... Here's what I did with it:
