The beautiful patterns and colors featured on the tags in our exclusive kits are perfect to use in place of patterned paper on your next layout, and Michelle Wedertz illustrates that perfectly here on an 8-1/2″ x 11″ layout featuring the February Exclusive Kit. Her design might just inspire you to put aside your patterned paper and pull out tags instead for your next layout!
This month my favorite part of February Exclusive Kit is the color scheme. The colors are both fresh and bright and includes hues that I don’t get to work with too often-orange and purple! These two colors show up quite frequently in my photos and it is so nice to finally have them in my scrapbooking products. I also like how the two colors provide contrast against a bright green, such as the grass in my photo that is featured in my layout today.
I decided to take a color blocking approach to my layout, that way I could fit in several different patterns. Instead of using patterned paper, I cut out rectangles from the journaling tags in the February Exclusive Kit to create a patchwork look to my design.
To finish my layout I reached for my new favorite embellishment- the Puffy Heart Stickers! I just adore these and find myself reaching for them again and again. Since the hearts come in several sizes and colors I can work them into almost any project I am working on. Thankfully I don’t have to live in fear of running out because there are quite a few hearts on one sheet!
Wishing you a happy day!
