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!
