Guessing Game #3 - 6 x 6 Paper Play with April

Hi everyone!  Welcome to day 3 of our July kit previews!

April here to share a layout I made using the 6x6 paper pad and some scraps I had leftover from the July PL and Embellie kits.  I had a lot of pictures to scrap this week, so I created a couple of layout inserts to add to my PL album.


I use a lot of the 6x6 pads in my PL spreads and when I'm done with them, I end up having a lot of 2x6 scraps.  It's awesome because I end up having a lot of material to work with for layering on my regular layouts.


I have to say, I was not a fan of the distressed look before, but I pulled out my paper distresser for the first time for this layout and now I am totally a fan!  I love the texture it adds.


A lot of time, if I don't have a use for a whole journaling card that comes in the kit, I cut it up to use elements designed on the card.  In this case, I fussy cut the stars from a journaling card.


Don't forget!  Leave a comment with a guess of what's in this month's kits for your chance to win a $5 GC! :)


  1. April, I really like your layout! Thank you for showcasing the possibilities of using a 6x6 paper pad for a 12x12 layout. The paper is Crate Paper's The Pier, the doily by Wilton, Jillibean Soup for the word sticker and possibly Project Life Cards by Becky Higgins. Thanks again! Keia

    1. Thanks so much Keia! And you're right about the Crate Paper and Jillibean Soup! :) The doily is actually a colored doily from a company called Riverbank - there are a couple of different colors in July's PL kit! :)

  2. Love the layout and how you use the 2*6 paper...i think i got lots of that too! I saw that alpha sticker from October Afternoon: Travel girl collection!! My fave alpha!

    1. Thank you Palisara! :) Beautiful name, by the way! And yep, you're on point - it is October Afternoon! It's included in the July Embellishment Kit!

  3. I am in love with all of these layers!!!
