Echo Park - For The Record Collection - 12 x 12 Collection Kit
I am going to share with you four layouts with different styles and different themes so you can see how I made my supplies stretch and I still have leftovers!!
I used the papers for a Renaissance Festival, my son, my dog, and a family photo. How cool is that?
1. My first page called Nine Years is about my son. This collection works well for boyish pages. When picking out a kit or paper pack that you want to make last, chose something with some neutral papers like I used here. For instance, I have not used anything floral on this page which is fitting for this theme. I used letters I cut out to make this even more boyish, plus the number paper strip works great for the age theme. (extras on page: Bazzill Kraft cardstock and My Minds Eye die cut)
2. On my second page, I went with a different style and a different theme. This paper works really great for vintage or renaissance photos, which is what I did here. Just creating this leaf theme enhances the whole feel earthy to the page. I used the same collection as above but this has a completely different look! The swirlie and flower elements really go great with my page style. (extras on page: Bazzill cardstock)
3. For my third page, I changed up the style again completely! I went with a more free flowing page but I used the same exact paper line. Adding rounded corners and swirles really changes up the mood of this page. I knew that I wanted a less graphic page and a more lovey dovey page. The floral tag really dressed up my page! (extras on page: Jenni Bowlin butterfly, American Crafts letter stickers and flower)
4. My last page is of my new puppy, Ollie. Again, I used a completely different look and theme. Adding the large flower gives this a slightly more soft look for my "new puppy" theme. I used three main colors from the kit that would make my photos pop even more. The banner gives my page that playful look which also goes along with a puppy theme. (extras on page: Bazzill Kraft cardstock, Epiphany Crafts buttons, American Crafts letters, and Jenni Bowlin butterfly)
So, now it's your turn.. next time you are shopping, consider buying a collection kit and creating lots of different looks and themes with your kit. You will save money and have fun in the process!
