March Kit - Simple Stories I Am Layout #2

Hi there!

Today I'm sharing another layout made with the beautiful March Kit featuring the Simple Stories I Am collection.

As with all Simple Stories collections, it comes with cut apart sheets for pocket page scrapping or as embellishments.  I started this layout with this 4x6 card and used it as part of my title. I used some old Thickers from my stash to finish the title.   All the embellishments on this page are from the sticker sheet, diecuts and chipboard from the kit.

I had quite a long story to tell, but I didn't leave myself any room to journal directly on the page.  So, I made a journaling card from some patterned paper and tucked it in behind the 4x6 card.

For my second project, I needed a quick card for a friend's birthday and since I had the collection spread out aaallll over my desk, I decided to use the kit.  ;)

Once again, I started with a cut apart sheet as the base of the card, and used scraps as layers behind it.  My friend is a quilter, so all the pieces are machine stitched.  The layers are placed on a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2 " cardbase  piece of the Lagoon cardstock and embellished with stickers and diecuts from the kit.  The ribbon is from the January Kit.  The "Happy" is a sticker from the 4x6 Sticker Sheet set, as is the "sunshine".  I cut the word from one of the longer word phrases.  I never have a problem cutting an embellishment and only using part of it.  The "birthday" is from a scrap of black cardstock and a die from my stash.

Be sure to check out the store for this collection.  Not only is it beautiful, but it's chock full of stickers and diecuts and paper.  I can see myself using these supplies on may projects to come!

Thanks for looking!
