Pocket Page Scrapbooking with April's Chic Tag Exclusive Kit + Giveaways!

Hello everyone! I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend (and the 3 day weekend for those who have one in celebration of Easter!)

Suz here with you today to share my Pocket Page spread created with April's exclusive kit (now sold out!). I found this month's kit perfect for documenting the first days of spring here as well as some theatre fun with friends and time spent at home enjoying the warmer days & sunshine.

Here is the full layout highlighting the week of April 7-13. I cut down the 4x6 "Staycation" card and stitched it over the base of my 4x6 photo located in the lower left of my two page spread.

The "radiate" flair was perfect for the photo of the "silver lining" cloud formation I happened to catch one lovely evening with my iPhone. 

As I mentioned earlier, I loved the spring themed cards this month and made the most of them  celebrating that (hallelujah!) spring was finally here. (Really sorry for those of you who just got dumped on again with a ton of snow. Unless, of course, you enjoy it--then yay you!)

 I tucked the "April" 3x4 card beneath this Cocoa Daisy card below (after trimming out the inside oval with my craft knife allowing the text to peek through).

 Stitching around the heart geotag below added a bit of interest and helped form an exclamation point for a little added fun to this happy layout. Then I used the April kit stamps to add the "right now" and the flag/banner stamp on the "status" card.
 I like how the darker photos are offset by the brighter pastels and yellows from the Gerber daisy in the "staycation" photo along with the yellow tag and how the black flair, "hooray" arrow, and black geotag complement the whole layout as well.

Since April's kits are all sold out, I am wondering whom of you have been creating with them already?  I would love to see what you are creating with the kits and by sharing your creations, you could win some more Chic Tags goodies! Sound fun?!


*(Please US and Canada residents only. This is due to high shipping costs that would exceed the value of the giveaway).

Here's how to play along:

1. Link us up with your creations here in the comment section below and/or:

2. Post a photo on Instagram of your creation and use the hashtag: #suzsaprilchictagsgiveaway 
(This is so we can easily find who is playing along and so we can see your creations!)

3. Follow both @ChicTags and @SuzMannecke on Instagram.

NOTE: **If you don't have an Instagram account, no worries, you can leave a comment here and tell a friend too so they can share in the fun and play along! Good luck! I will post the winners back here on Monday, April 21 and will notify the winners via Instagram as well.  I will do my best to mail out the goodies within 1-2 days of the giveaway's end.  

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

This is really cool. I like how you lined the pictures up on the silver edges to leave lots of effects for the spring stories. I loved to read some earlier posts in this blog explaining how to manage the entire collection of photographed.
