May 2021 Stampin Up Scrapbook layout kits


Scrapbook layouts and kits for May 2021 are what I call "flip it" scrapbook pages! 
You will see the same layouts in July, but the difference will be that we will be flipping over the designer paper and the theme will be different! It is a fun way to do a couple of layouts in a row with the same colors but maybe you want a different set of pictures with the same event or theme. I had a blast making these and I'll look forward to showing you the July flip it pages then!

Stampin up Fun folds with Card kits

 Stampin up kits have been my go to for this past year! With classes unable to meet in person this has made the planning time a bit longer for me with online videos, still written instructions and live online classes.  These kits have helped shorten my planning time and expanded my creativity! I have really enjoyed creating new ideas with these kits! These were the ones we did in February! I created the Angle pop up card, the Corner flip card and a note card holder that holds some of those fabulous notecards that come in some kits! It makes a really nice gift too! Contact me to join in on these types of classes!
