Hear The Music

We were given 2 design options for the 2nd March Design Team project: use a Page Pattern 3 or the Plum Perfect page kit from Mosaic Moments. I love to use the page kits that Tami Potter has designed, so I lept at the opportunity to use one for my project.

We were asked to add a twist or two to the page kit to make it our own. I decided to use the kit in it's original orientation since that is how my photos best fit.

My photos had quite a bit of red in them. At first, I did not think they were going to work with the Plum Perfect kit but I noticed there were a few red hearts on the accent paper. I thought "Why not add more red to the accent paper so it would better match my photos". I grabbed my trusty BIC marker and started coloring and adding lots of extra red accents.

I also wanted to add something extra to the purple accent strips. I remembered that I recently purchased a music themed stamp set. I dug that out of the cupboard and stamped a border along the strips.

To finish off my page, I pulled out the Cricut and cut out a title to fill the one remaining photo block. And I ran the journaling block through my printer to add those important details about the event.  Page kits are wonderful! You can quickly put a layout together with them but you can also make them your our with a few extra touches.

Love the layout! It reminds me of when my son was in band. If you watch their feet they tap to keep time.

Changing the kit seemed intimidating to me but you did a great job by adding red to the pattern paper to match your photos and stamping the music notes on the bottom border. I love how you did the title also!

I love the way you adapted the kit to your pics by adding the red to the patterned paper. The title and the musical stamped elements finish off a great layout! I also used the kit, but I haven't been able to forward--computer issues at home. Now we are on vacation in Florida, and I'm going to try again today here at the resort. I think I need everyone's prayers--Ha!

A great way to add life to those kinda boring band pics!

I love that you added more red hearts - and the music border is wonderful Sarah. Your title is great and I love how you included the date down the side (next to the ribbon) of the journal block.

What a great idea to change the patterned paper to add more of the red - I don't know that I would have thought to do that! I'll have to keep that in mind for future projects!

I love the great! What an ingenious way to add red to the patterned paper to match the reds in your layout!
