I just love this collection. It’s so full of colour and fun and great elements that just work so well with my 3 C’s style – colour, collage and chaos! Ha. It’s still the featured collection this month at April Lilli and 20% off! I think I might need more of the word and alphabet Thickers, they are just SO good.
When I do weekly layouts, I usually use a different theme/collection/whatever for each side, but this one worked good with both sides, so I did a double spread with it. The left side is pics from B’s birthday and the right side is just fun every day things that week. The bright colours were just so fun to work with and the stickers and Thickers were great for adding bold wording to the pages.
I also loved the specialty paper this month. It’s hard to see, but the navy paper has subtle iridescent words that have a rainbow sheen in the right light. AMAZING. I loved the paint-dipped effect on the Thickers, the colours from the collection worked great on them.
The papers in this collection have a nice mix of bold colours, fun patterns and great b-sides with toned down shades from the collection. While I went super bright and in your face, it would also be easy to go for a more subtle dreamy look. I used C’est La Vie, Amour, Counting Up, Dreamer, Hey Hey Hey, More Friday and Oh Hello to mat photos and make journal pockets.
I think the element from the collection I was most surprised by were the flags! I didn’t think I’d use them at first because they were bulky, but I ended up using all of them over a few layouts! I also loved the embellishment pack to add some dimension. And enamel dots!
