A Colorful Celebration with Suzanna Stein

We are so excited about our colorful, new March 2018 kit, and our design team is, too! For our first March blog post this month, Suzanna Stein is sharing a beautiful pocket page spread all about a special birthday with her family. Let’s take a look:
Hey there, crafty pals! It’s Suzanna here and I’m so excited to share a project with you that I created using the March kit and add-ons.

I had so much fun creating these pocket pages and used a few tags in different ways than they may have been intended, which is one of my favorite things to do while crafting!

For the first page of my spread, I used a journaling tag with lines for my title. I used a mix of the Happy Moments Stamp and Cerulean Blue Puffy Alphabet Stickers to create the title for my layout, then added a simple red heart from the Heart of Gold Chipboard Stickers in the bold box at the top of the card.


I also created a little cluster on the rainbow dot card for my date. In the cluster, I added a die cut from the March Kit with staples and a Heart of Gold chipboard heart to add dimension.


On the second page, I used more layers and clusters to add detail and dimension to the layout. One of the favorite tags that I used is half of the “always a favorite” 4″ x 6″ tag that came in the March Kit. After cutting it in half, I added a die cut with staples to hold a simple sentiment.

I brought the rainbow over to this side of the layout with the 3″ x 4″ rainbow stripe card from the March Kit. I like that this brings balance to the layout!

For the journaling, I used the 5 things card for a few simple words. I didn’t use this to list five things, but I love the simple journaling it allows me to add—almost like a second title.
To finish the layout, I splattered gold craft spray across various cards throughout the spread. I love the bright colors of this kit and that I was able to document a special birthday memory in such a vibrant and uplifting layout!
I’ll be back next month for more crafty inspiration! Until then, I can’t wait to see what you’re creating using this kit!
