I told y'all yesterday that I'd been on a roll with the NoelMignon Primrose Lane kit!
It has a great sheet of Crate Paper alphas and stickers that I happen to notice had several party & birthday themed stickers... perfect for a couple of birthday layouts I needed to do!
The first one is about my daughter's birthday that was just a week ago... I had a lot of photos I wanted to include. It's so hard to edit down and figure out what best represents the event! Thank goodness for wallet sized photos!
It was hard to not make this layout look too busy, what with all the photos and the small scale collage details already on the background paper, however, by keeping the color scheme soft, I think I managed to pull off a good balance.
I loved the touch of layering the border stickers from the kit underneath one of the photos. I also added detail by cutting out some of the side banners from one of the journaling spots and then tucking my photo behind them.
The second layout was one of my third child's birthday, from back in December! I didn't want it to look Christmassy, so I'd been waiting 'til all the fun, girly products came out this spring. This kit was perfect for it! I played around with the layout design for a bit, pushing around items, until I found this simple design. The large piece of design cut from the chevron paper grounds the entire design, and the backwards "L" shape on the right side keeps your eye moving back to the pictures.
