More Birds Of A Feather March Kit Goodness!

I have more Birds Of A Feather March Kit projects to share with you that will hopefully put a smile on your face because I am sure smiling about them! If you have yet to get yourself one of these fabulous kits, I suggest you do so soom because Amy's only got five left!

My first layout is one that I thought of right away when I saw the kit. Once I saw the bikes, the coffee cups and mason jars throughout the Little Yellow Bicycle Just Because collection, I knew I needed to do a layout about Courier Coffee. They are a local Portland company that delivers coffee, in mason jars, by bike courier. Yeah, perfect right? So here's my creation. I added a few of the chipboard pieces available as part of the extra embellishments and of course I had to use the cute coffee cup paper that I got as part of the extra patterned paper add-on. Totally love the way this one turned out!

And here are a couple close-ups...

For this next one I started with this gorgeous piece of lined paper from the Teresa Collins Stationary Noted collection and went from there. I wanted to keep the layout clean to allow the background paper to shine. I created the Polaroid frame myself by simply cutting a piece of white cardstock to 4.5"x5.5" and then matting my 4"x4" photo on it leaving a .25" edge along the top and sides and 1.25" edge along the bottom. I kinda went a little crazy with the Petaloo brads but love the way they look!

This next layout perplexed me because of the size of the photos. These photos are from Liam's first portrait shoot, and I knew the only one I felt comfortable cropping was the one on the far right. So, I turned to a Sketch Savvy sketch for some guidance. I love the stitched circles; well, I love any hand-stitching on a layout! I made the little flags from pieces of the vellum tape and some toothpicks - super easy, simple and cute! I also broke out the super cute Stationary Noted garland for my border.

And lastly, I threw together a quick card with the leftover scraps from the patchwork card technique I shared a couple weeks ago.
Thanks for stopping by today to check out my work! I hope you all have a beautiful Sunday and a very happy St. Patrick's Day!
