I'm so excited to be sharing my first layout as a design team member for Noel Mignon! This month's "Pool Party" Classic Kit is going to be so much fun!
The kit is perfect for all sorts of pictures, but I figured I would use it for pool pictures right away, how can I resist!?!!
I take a LOT of pictures, and sometimes have a hard time narrowing it down. The past few years, I have created collages (through Picasa), as a solution to that problem. This way, I can add quite a few pictures to my layouts without making them overcrowded---and there is still plenty of room for pretty papers, embellishments, and journaling.
I like to add layers and texture to my layouts. I sometimes do that by dry embossing cardstock, as I did with the blue/green strip that I tucked behind the embellishment cluster below.
I actually used 2 alphabets from last month's "Happy Go Lucky" Classic Kit, because the colors and style blended so well with this layout. I thought the little fan die cut was too cute not to use along side of the title.
I often use the branding strips as added layers, the polka dot strip pictured below is from a Crate Paper branding strip. Luckily these days, lots of companies have cute branding strips---Crate Paper's are always some of my favorites! I love when they come in my kits!!!
Thank you so much for joining us today! I am looking forward to sharing more work in the coming weeks and months here at Noel Mignon Kit Club!!!
