Two layouts by Margrethe

Hello, everyone!

I'm Margrethe and I'm the guest designer with Scrappin Studio this month. Today I want to show you two layouts I made using the October kit, Roller Rink and the add-on Couples Skate.

The first layout is with a photo I took on a recent trip to Krakow, Poland. While wandering the streets there, I came across this really cool, bright red car. The city of Krakow is beautiful, with its old Medieval city center, but it is still a big city with dust, dirt and exhaust. So coming across this bright color was unexpected and I had to take a photo of it.

For this layout I used only the main kit, Roller Rink.

I love everything wood and woodgrain, so when I found this paper by [insert] in the kit, I knew I had to make a layout with some bright colors on it as well. The chevrons are hand-cut from one of the in-kit adds. I used some paper doilies I have in my stash to add some layers.

The vellum speech buble and the Instagram-flair was just perfect as it looks like one of the pedestrians was pointing at the car just as the shutter of my iPhone camera closed. Of course, this photo was shared on Instagram...

My next layout is made using both Roller Rink and the add-on Couple Skate. The photo is of our newest family member, Nymeria.

 I used a heart punch to cut the hearts and added them to the cardstock in a starburst-like manner to draw the focus to the photo. I stamped the chevron and the sentiment using regular black stamp ink.

The pink/red alphas from Amy Tangerine was perfect for the title, without taking to much attention away from the woodgrain alphas and the main part of the layout's title.

Thank you for visiting today!
