I love these 'On the Sunny Side' papers by My Mind's Eye. It's a nice bright colorful range and reminds me of summer. I appreciate we are in October right now but I try to ensure my kits aren't full of the very obviously themed seasonal stuff - not everyone wants to scrap witches and pumpkins in October so instead get out your summer time photos and get them scrapped this month!
I've done something slightly different here - instead of two single layouts I've done a double layout! For my sample kit layouts I almost always stick to singles (I don't know why) but I had quite a few photos from one day to scrap and thought they'd work best as a double layout. I'm not big on using two different papers for the background (one for each page) and I didn't have two of one paper so I decided to make my background papers by cutting two sheets in half and sticking them back together so I had dots on top and mini chevron things on the bottom. This provided me with the continuity I ususally look for in a double layout. I then used a large piece of the chevron paper stretched across both pages and the spotty red paper to house my photos. I wanted to use small tile style alphabet stickers as part of my title but there weren't any in the kit so I made them by cutting small pieces of yellow card all the same size and handwriting in the letters. I had a lot of journaling about this particular day so wrote that directly onto the background paper. I added a few strips here and there and finished off using the buttons tied through with twine.
and here is Kirei's layout using these supplies. Check out her blog for more details on how she made it.
