Dixie Pieces Reveal - April 2010

This months kit over at Dixie Pieces was right up my alley. Just a few days before I saw our color scheme and what was in the kit, I had taken the girls to the park for a little photo shoot. Then when I saw the kit I just couldn't believe how perfect it was for the pictures I had just taken. So these first two Layouts are from our first spring photo shoot of the year.

(Supplies: Dixie Pieces April kit; Making Memories Slice Machine (heart and "Soars"); and Martha Stewart Butterfly Punch)

For this one I used the Glimmer Mist in the kit and sprayed the white cardstock. I cut some flowers out of one of the patterned papers in the kit and used them as a mask.
(Additional Supplies: Fiskars Threading water Border Punch; Back Zig Pen)


I struggled a bit with the placement of these photos. I like using one bigger picture with 2 wallet sized. I do it a lot. But usually they are portrait orientation, and these are landscape. I actually ended up placing all the patterned paper pieces first, and then the pictures fell into their home. I love those big sunglasses on Natalie. They're so big, that if you look close enough you'll see my reflection in them taking the pic! ha!
(Additional Supplies: Small plate for tracing and cutting the circle :)

And then here are the 2 cards I made:
