I wanted to share some lovely creative team layouts made with Garden Party

This pretty page was created by bunnyfreak and features photos of her grandparents' beautiful trees in bloom. I love how she used the circle frames for all the photos, clustered the ribbons and flowers, and the fun layered matting!

Digitals' creative team member Crystal aka cjpark84 created two lovely layouts. This one features photos of a very special first meeting! The large floral cluster beautifully frames the larger photo and the flat ribbon and circle frame lead your eye right to the smaller photo. So sweet!

I absolutely love this next layout, also by Crystal! The bright and cheery feel is just what I envisioned when creating the kit, and the layout feels so light and carefree while still having such a nice balance. 

Don't forget to join in the Designer Elements challenge this month!

Have you seen my new kit? Celebrate the beauty of the outdoors with Garden Party

This kit bundles up the sweetness you might find as you prepare for a little garden party or day enjoying your own backyard. These pieces were first created while preparing for my daughter's garden themed birthday party, and they will work beautifully to create layouts, cards and all the hybrid projects you can dream up too!

The Garden Party elements include: 1 worn paper and thread butterfly, 1 striped ribbon bow, 2 buttons, 1 with thread bow, 3 silk flowers, 2 silk leaves, 1 looped cord threaded with paper flowers (pre shadowed),  1 paper circle frame 1 ribbon frame, 1 folded ribbon, 1 length ricrak, 1 length zigzag stitching, 1 sequin spill, 1 paper mat or journaling note and 1 paper tag hanging from string.

Also included are 10 differently patterned and textured papers. I had a lot of fun making these prints! (Look for some of them to be coming out as fabric prints in my Spoonflower shop soon too! )

Be sure to join in the Designer Elements challenge at Digitals this month too! I'm hosting and your challenge prop is a Garden Party Add-On Mini Kit! Pick it up for FREE and join in the challenge! You'll get a prize just for making a layout with it!
