Nook April Kit Layout and an Invitation

The April Kit features the beautiful and playful line of My Minds Eye Quite Contrary Little Boy Blue. All the hues of green and blue here are just perfect. The patterns are so fun to play with. To know more about the Nook April Kit read below:

This kit includes:

7 Double Sided My Mind's Eye "Quite Contrary" Papers
3 Die Cut "Quite Contrary" papers
1 Jillibean Soup Printed Twill/Twine set
1 Jillibean Soup Corrugated Alphabet in Kraft
My Mind's Eye Journaling spots and die cuts
My Mind's Eye sticker sheets in both borders and labels
Maya Road leaf pins

October Afternoon Mini Market Sticker Sheet

Here is the first layout that I did using this amazing kit:


This is a layout of my beautiful baby girl with her Aunt Grandma, Lola Fe. The photo was taken last April 3, 2010 during the Ruidera Clan Reunion. I just love this photo so much and it was perfect for the kit.

I enjoyed doing this layout and a lot of time adding color and dimension to my page. Here are the materials that I've used:

Cardstock: Bazzill
Patterned Papers: My Minds Eye Quite Contrary -Little Boy Blue
Alpha: Jillibean, October Aftermoon and Adorn It
Diecut: My Minds Eye Quite Contrary -Little Boy Blue
Sticker: My Minds Eye Quite Contrary -Little Boy Blue
Paint: Shimmerz Spritz (Sea Foam & Tuscan Sun)and Blingz (Winter Green)
Pin: Maya Road and twine
Flower: Prima
Others: Ranger Distress Inks, FiskarBorder Punch, Liquid Pearls



I have used a lot of Shimmerz Paints on this layout and a lot of layering. I think I have added apart of each patterned paper from the kit on this one. Shimmerz Spritz was randomly sprayed on this page and on the photo.

And one more thing
