March pages for Scrapbook Circle

Hello! The March kit for Scrapbook Circle, Oh Happy Day, comes just as winter in the Northern hemisphere is drawing to a close, and I am delighted with how much color it holds. I bought both add-ons and more paper, I loved it so much. Here are my pages.

First, a page about my son and coding, a page where I used a lot of the main and the add-on Beautiful Day:

I drew color inspiration from his Minecraft sweatshirt--no lie. Since the kit had lots of wonderful yellows too, I added that to punch it up (and because it goes with his hair).

The background had grey misting with some yellow dots, and I altered the speech bubble to house the title, which I stamped and stitched.

Then I made  page to commemorate the pond at the Landscape Arboretum Rowan fell in as a toddler.

I love the greens in this kit, plus this cool triangle paper, which reminds me of water. I sewed the banners down instead of attaching them with the wooden hangers they came with. I like how Rowan in his red shirt pops against all the green.

Next was a page that tugs at my heart. My grandmother died recently, and these photos were ones that she kept over the years. I made this page for my dad (she was his mom) for his birthday.

For this page, I used the papers from the add-on Beautiful Day, plus my favorite embellishment, the flair from the add-on Good Vibes. Lots of embellishments from the main as well.

For the title, I was trying a play on words: love notes/love noted. I think these photos are my way of noting how much she loved us all.

There's some amazing washi with the kits--the gold in Good Vibes that I used on the water page and my final layout and this love washi that came with the main. It was perfect for the page.

Finally, a page that highlights the printables that come with the kit:

When we traveled in Boston last summer, we took to imitating the statues we saw--there were so many!--and taking photos. I used the triangular printable as the border above the photos.

The title tiny letters come from lettering from an old kit--lots of gorgeous blues in this kit.

More washi and die cuts and flair from the add-ons!

Thank you for visiting and seeing the pages I made. I hope you go to Scrapbook Circle, check out the ideas there and these wonderful kits. In addition, this will be my last month with Scrapbook Circle. It's been an inspiring two years, and I've enjoyed my time with their products. I'm glad this terrific kit was my last to play with because it was truly inspiring.
