The 'Mint Julep' range by Basic Grey is a very pretty one, a bit Cath Kidston perhaps? The florals are lovely and the colours are a pretty mix of pinks, blues, aquas and yellow. There are also loads of die cuts and transparency shapes included with the kit this month also from the Mint Julep range so obviously coordinate well with the papers.
I've used the small floral for the background to this layout with just a hint of another floral at the top there. I've got three photos on here but two are printed at 2x3" and I have a mix of portrait and landscape (for once!). I've embellished with the die cuts and transparencies.
My second layout is of a series of six photos all cropped to about 4x4" and for once I've managed to use up some of the numbers on my Thickers! Notice the deliberate mistake in my title? It's meant to say 'slide' but somehow I transposed the 'l' and the 'i' and came up with 'silde' which obviously makes no sense whatsoever - oops! I didn't even notice as I was photographing it, only as I was typing this post so have run off to correct that little mishap! The photos take up a very large portion of this layout so most of the embellishment is at the bottom which is also where I've added my title and journaling.
and here is Kirei's layout using these supplies. Check out her blog for more details on how she made it.
