Kit of the Month: PRICKLY PEAR

In Kit of the Month by Lynn Como

Prickly Pear is the perfect KIT to scrap for your summertime photos!  Using the product line, I created 6 pages plus 2 BONUS pages!  I love how two of the layouts give off ‘happy vibes’ because we are drawn to reds, yellows, and oranges.  This color palette seems to bring out the most happy feelings and photos to scrap!

And with our new two toned cardstock, you can pick the brighter red, or softer tone of the reverse side to use on these pages.  They are sure to please!

I know you love to FIESTA  and celebrate summer time fun!  This two page layout helps you achieve it with options to add 5×7, 4×6 and 4×3 flip flaps for even more photo options. Color theme of blues and yellows make it quite different from above.

Lastly, I have to say I turned lemons into lemonade.  Actually, more like taking the cactus pattern paper (here on the Northeast Coast, just not our thing) and turning it over and calling it green watermelons.  I used it on thebottom of layout below. I love the cool (as in cucumbers) color and the bright deep orange to make it POP!  I’m going to use the layout for some fun segway photos from Utah (so much fun if you’ve never done it!) .   Great use of 4×6 and 4×3 flip flaps too!  It’s much more vibrant in person.


Oh … and if you don’t want to use the stickers of cactus above, that’s OK.  you’ll have extra paper to create your own magic . . . or use nothing at all.  Your choice!

Look at the pretty papers and complements.

(Remember … green watermelons on the other side of the cactus paper.)  

Here’s another fun layout and cards I did NOT create, but if you love this look instead, go for it!
