Scraptastic April Kit

I am sharing two of the layouts I made *mostly* with the Scraptastic April Kit - Awake My Soul.  This was my first kit from Scraptastic, and I really enjoyed working with it.  I am not the best at just using the kit - but I challenged myself to try and stick to the kit as much as I could with the first layout.  I ended up doing OK with it but couldn't resist adding some washi, a tag, a doilie, and some stamps...

I also ended up *accidentally* challenging myself: I worked on these layouts at my parents' house when I was staying with my grandmother some when she was sick. I typically scrap at home and have only been to a crop one time, which was over 5 years ago. Needless to say, I am not used to traveling with my scrapbook supplies. I did fairly well with the amount of supplies - I think I brought 3 12x12 Iris Scrapbook cases and a few supplies in my bag - but I forgot one main item - My trimmer! Due to my grandmother's condition, I really couldn't leave the house, so I was stuck. I luckily found a ruler and I had my scissors, so I started with that.  A little bit into my first page, I was able to get a hold of my little brother who told me where a box cutter was - so I used the box cutter, a ruler and a mouse pad for my cutting. It worked out fine but was a little slower than just having my trimmer! All that to say, if you notice some uneven lines, please just ignore!

Here is the first layout I made:

And the second layout:

So far, I have made a couple other layouts using the kit as well as some of my other supplies. I will share those soon...Thanks for stopping by!



  1. These layouts are awesome! I love all the little details and the fact that the photos totally pop.

  2. Both layouts look great. Love all of the layering.

  3. Both pages are so pretty....and that title lettering is to die for!
