SCT Sampler - April 2020

I was pretty excited to dig in to this month's way cute #sctsampler by Scrapbook and Cards Today Magazine. I managed to get 2 layouts and several cards done, and I still have a bit of paper and elements left that I can probably put together one more layout!

The first layout was a fun and simple design. Don't you love it when you have exactly the right photos to use on your layout?! And just happened to have some coordinating Echo Park card stock that matches really nicely to the Photo Play Paper Tulla & Norbert collection. I also had some little veneer mushrooms and hedgehog to add 🥰🦔🍄 Cute or what?!

The second layout made good use of Pebbles Inc. Hey, Hello pattern papers & Birthday Sentiments, and some scrap Echo Park paper and Me and My Big Idea Happy Planner® stickers that I had on hand. I have a few more years of birthday layouts to do considering this kiddo is almost a teenager now! 🎁🎂🎈

The remaining are some simple greeting cards I threw together with the great stamps and ephemera by Close to My Heart and although it's been a while since I've made a card, I think I'll make a few more to have on hand for those special occasions, including sympathy cards. When someone experiences a loss, it's sometimes a struggle to find the right words of condolences. I found this little poem online by Janyce Cotterill that is just so lovely and conveys such a nice sentiment.
