KnK April kit....

...and isn't it lovely?! All kinds of fun things in here.... Prima, Little Yellow Bicycle, BoBunny, and Webster's are the core elements of this kit and I just love all the beautiful springtime colors! Jules did a beautiful job putting this together. Today happens to also be my first reveal with this kit, I've created two very different layouts to share with you. The first I used the LYB papers with a coordinating reverse-side of one of the Prima papers. I cut the butterflies from one of the lace-cut cardstock pieces in the embellishment add-on, and the Petalooo vines are from the March kit add-ons (I couldn't help myself, they just matched too perfectly!). Add some lovely photos of my daughter watering the flowers and there you have it, a sweet and simple springtime layout. :)
I focused on the BoBunny die-cut sheet for my next layout though you'd almost not even notice it. I wanted to do something different with it, so instead of using the whole sheet as a backdrop for the layout, I cut out the entire middle of it and just used the edge. I layered it over a different piece of cardstock and did a little trimming, then stitching for some dimension. I was then free to cut out a few of the cute elements from the leftover paper (the birds and birdhouse) to use as embellishments. I kind of struggled with the rest of the layout... I initially had three pictures to use but every way I arranged them just seemed to overpower the page. The end result was way out of my comfort zone but overall I am happy with it.
Make sure you head over to Kit 'n Kaboodles to check out what the rest of the designers are doing with this beautiful kit! Thanks for stopping by. :)
