Hi friend. Spring is finally making an appearance here in the UK so the April Moodboard is a perfect starting point for a layout.  The pretty images have inspired me to use brighter colours for my design.

I fell in love with this background paper in the March main kit. It is so fun and bright.  I had the perfect photos which pick up on the colours and the energy of the paper.

So that my photos didn’t get ‘lost’ on a busy background, I mounted the small photos onto black cardstock.  I love how they pop.

To add more depth and interest, I layered  patterned papers including a paper with a black background to bring the black through the layout.  Although all the patterns I chose are quite busy and striking, I think they work together so well.

I love the Pink Fresh Studio pockets in the embellishment kit.  I’ve tucked one behind the photo cluster so I can add journaling and a little note.

The bottom cluster has chipboard pieces from Simple Stories, Life in Bloom (Embellishment Kit).  To add drama, I die-cut the floral heart using the Hip Kit Metal die.  Have you tried the Hip Kit dies?  They are so sturdy and cut through your cardstock like butter!

I added chipboard frames and chipboard pieces around the photo to finish off.
