Crop Addict May Layouts How-to's!

Do you have lots of girl layouts to do, then this is the absolute best kit for YOU?!!!
You can get it at Crop Addict!



Here's how to make 2 of my layouts that I made this month with the kit
and some up close pics of the products that I used to make it!
Hope you enjoy!!!:)

Pigtails Sweetie Layout
This is a picture of my daughter who will turn 15 in November!!! Love this picture because it truly shows her personality and all that sass she has!!!  I am truly enjoying scrapping pics from years ago!!!
1. Use the 12X12 red shade of bazzill in your kit and spritz with some glimmer mist.
2. Distress the edges of your cardstock and add some dark brown colorbox chalk ink to it.
3. I cropped my picture at 4 X 5 3/4". Finally, I cut Allie 3 1/2 X 10 1/4."
Then used Emma from Paper Doll collection in the May Crop Addict kit and cut it to 4 3/4 X 6 1/2." 

Next, I cut Ashley from Paper Doll collection in Crop Addict's May kit 5 1/4 X 8 3/4". 

Finally, I cut Allie from Paper Doll collection in the May Crop Addict Kit 3 1/2 X 10 1/4."

 4. I laid the scallop sticker from the Paper doll journal stickers down on the side of the paper and then layered each piece of cut pattern paper on top.  See picture for details.

I zigzag stitched along the outside edge of the scallop sticker and the Allie pattern paper.
5. Then I embellished the page with several chipboard embellishments.  I inked the edges with my dark brown colorbox chalk ink pad.

(You get 1 sheet of these in the kit option! I had so much fun with mine!)

6. I added the pigtail sticker to my journaling spot from Maya Road.
(These come in different colors in the kit.  I think white or pink.  Mine were pink!)
There you have it! Very simple and fun!

Here's my other how to layout...
Cute Little Cousins
This is another picture of Kati, but much more recent. 
Just realized they both have to deal with her hair (LOL!)
1. I created my pictures on Picasa and used the collage with the polaroid settings. 
I just messed around with it until I found something I liked.
2. I sewed a straight stitch around the outside edge of the Paisley Girls Paperie pattern paper and then every once in awhile turned my stitch to zigzag.
2. I laid the My Little Shoebox Imagine a Forest Fresh Air diecut on the paper and then cut off what I didn't want with scissors.  It was easy to do because of the lines that are on it. 

3. Then I added the border sticker on the edge and used a strip of  Katie pattern paper.  I used my EK Success spiral punch along the edge of it and then tucked it under the edge of the sticker.
For placement of the pictures refer to my page.  Next I added journaling stickers and some chipboard stickers.


4. I tucked the Bazzill library pocket under the edge of the die cut paper,
added a sticker and a Maya Road journaling sheer. 
5. Then I placed the sparkle chipboard dress hanger on it and added the Making Memories puffy alphabet stickers.  I also placed the word cute above the alphabet stickers to give it more dimension.


Didn't I tell you this kit was all about the girls? It's just great!!!
