This coming weekend I'm hosting a National Scrapbook Day event for some of my FAVORITE scrapbooker friends. One of the products I plan to highlight for them is the brand new Spring Additions pack. This pack just became available March 1st. Click HERE to purchase it.
The pack consists of 12X12 double side papers, paper photo mats, title stickers and decorative stickers. The color palette has a dark and light teal, a coral and a lime-ish green. There are a variety of patterns from a cross hatch to a soft linen to little sparkly sunshines.
This pack reflects the colors you would find in clothing stores right now!
The colors are more muted than vibrant and they reflect the early spring landscapes with the waning winter hues just beginning to let in some modest colors.
The muted shades in this pack will contrast well with spring photos that show more vibrant colors. They are more bold than pastel but definately not bright. The look is soft and soothing.
Flowers are a key icon in this pack - and of course, it is spring after all!
If you've read my blog before, you'll know I'm a big fan of additions packs. There are just enough supplies to treat you to the new colors featured this season, but not SO much product that you feel you have to use them year in and year out. A few page layouts and you're on to your summer pack. That's the way I like it!

NO JUDGEMENT HERE! There's a style for everyone and maybe you like to flip flop between them or combine the two styles - guess what - there are no rules - feel free - you can do just that!

I like to cut apart the 12X12 papers and get a bit more mileage out of my layouts.
Once the paper is cut apart, there are no end to the layouts you can create. I've shown examples using one or two 4X6 uncropped photos and one smaller cropped photo - just for consistency. I've demonstrated the layouts using the back of the photo. Imagine YOUR photo in this spot!
Sometimes you can use the same embellishments but just arrange your photos and journaling boxes in different orientations to fit your specific needs.
Of course there's nothing to keep you from using an entire 12X12 paper as a background - they are beautiful papers after all.
But cut them apart to stretch your package supplies.
|oops, blogger turned my photo - ugh!|
|Three photos (2 uncropped) plus a little journaling spot.|
|Here's a style for one uncut photo and a bit of a longer journaling story.|
Here are a few more layouts.
Happy Scrapping and ENJOY some flowers in your life inside or out.
