Cascade Gardens - My First Layout Kit

Last week I created my very first layout kit! During one of my numerous visits to Personal Scrapbook, our local scrapbook store, I offered to create a layout and kit with some beautiful yellow and green papers. I enjoy trying new things and this was definitely a new way of creating a layout.

As always, I started by pulling photos that I thought would work well with the papers, then built my layout around those. Then I starting cutting papers and decided on the layout design.


Once I had the basic design established, I had to make notes of the sizes of each paper so I could cut everything for the kits. I also added additional elements, like punched flowers and borders.


I put together a sample layout with all the items from the kit and took photos to create a flyer to go with the kit. Then I was able to complete my sample layout with photos from our trip to Cascade Gardens. I also customized my layout by chalking the edges of all the papers, adding dots and bling to the center of the flowers, and cutting a title (with the extra papers included in the kit) with my Cricut.


This was a FUN experience, so I just might be creating more kits in the coming months. Check out my post on the Personal Scrapbook blog for more photos of this 2-page layout kit!
