The Homespun kit was a favorite of mine! I loved the bolder (and more boy-friendly) colors. As a Mama to three boys, I try to incorporate the more "girly" product here and there, but I hardly ever get to go "all out" on a page with pink and flowers. ;)
I loved the Crate paper product from the Purl Add-on and I had this photo of one of my besties and I, so I thought it was the perfect opportunity to use it.
To start, I created a grid with some of the patterned papers and my photo all trimmed to 4"x4". It was a good base for my layout, but it definitely needed more.
Die cut packs are some of my very favorite embellishments. I find them to be very versatile and they last a long time! Since this die cut pack was pretty and pink, I didn't mind using up lots of the pieces for just one layout. I thought it would be fun to create a little pocket right on my layout. To do this, I simply cut a piece of packaging plastic into a 4x4 square as well and placed it on top of a transparency piece. I put a lot of the flower die cuts in between the plastic and transparency layers and added a handful of sequins from my stash as well.
I held the plastic piece and transparency tightly together and ran it through my sewing machine creating a little die cut and sequin pouch for my layout.
My confetti pocket still needed something else, so I used one of the cork words from the kit and painted it using Martha Stewart's Liquid Gilding Gold. I love the coverage and the gold is really shimmery and fun!
Once the word was dry, I adhered it directly to the top of my pocket.
I added a few more flower die cuts around the page and added some journaling on one of the die cut tags. I love how die cut packs can really go the distance. I still have plenty of die cuts leftover from this pack to use again and again!
