Crop Addict 5th Anniversary - DAY 2!!!!

You know what I love most about the March 2011 Kit from Crop Addict??? First of all the colors!!! All those bright and happy colors; lots of reds and orange! and secondly the patterns: birds, butterflies and hearts!!!! I just love patterned paper with these themes!!!

Today I thought I would share with you how I created my layout "Books make me happy", made with the Crop Addict March 2011 Monthly Scrapbooking Kit:

Start with the red My Little Shoebox paper for your background.

Cut strips of paper in various lengths and sizes from other MLS papers and choose one of the tags from the kit to use on your page:

Adhere these strips of paper and your tag (with ribbon) to your background and cut off any excess paper:

Use your sewing machine to add some whimsical stitched lines to the strips:

Create a photo mat for your photos. Add a faux stitched line along the edge:

Add another mat behind the first and adhere your photos:

Last but not least: punch a few flowers from one of your Dream Street papers and add these to your layout:

And that's it!! You're done!! Easy Peasy!!

Hope you enjoyed it! If you're looking for even more inspiration, have a look at the Crop Addict forum. Do you know there's a subject called "totally technique"? You can read here about soooo many different techniques!!

See you again tomorrow??? And don't forget to leave a comment to win!!!
