Monday Inspiration by Beatrice: Backyard Party

Have you seen the special summer deal SnickerdoodleDesigns has on her Facebook page? There are four summer scrapbook kits available for the single, incredible price of $7. And if you purchase this special deal there will be discounts and bonus products available every week for the next four weeks including, my personal favorite, templates. If you haven’t seen it yet, follow the link and don’t miss out: Outdoor Fun $7.  I’ll be bringing you layout inspiration each week featuring one of the included kits.

I think you will find that Karen has carefully chosen the kits so you have everything you need to scrap your summer pages. Today I’m showcasing layouts using Backyard Party

Backyard Party Kit

As always this kit is packed with a variety of elements and papers from vintage to current. I love the soft colors, but there are some shabby and painted papers too. 

The photo in this layout by Bright Eyes is just precious and by keeping it large it remains the focal point. The banner of Chinese lanterns across the top merges seamlessly with the cluster of balloons, bows and straws down the right hand side. I really like the word art she used for her title. While it isn’t in the kit itself, it is included in one of the add-ons. That butterfly is the perfect added touch to a wonderfully festive layout.


The extractions in this layout by Erica B are amazing. I really like the scene she created by placing each child on a stepping stone from the kit. I like the way she created a wall and a floor by combining the kit papers and adding the floral music brush. I also like the way she replaced the framed word art in the kit with a quote that suits her page, and the poem she included ties the entire layout together.

Here’s another page with an extraction, this time by franlk. She also created a scene but entirely different from the one above. I like the shabby wood paper she stacked with the textured paper to create her background. The fence is the perfect backdrop for her horizontal floral cluster. The title work she created supports the theme of her page with the child perched on the car ready to travel to places far and wide.

I really like the diagonally split design in this layout by Jody T. The ornately framed photo almost looks like a museum painting. The large orange flowers tie in beautifully with the patterned paper with its repeating orange buds. I like the way she linked the flowers together with the straw (you would never guess) and added the single, strung lantern. 

This white space layout by Lyncal is so pretty. I love the leafy paper she chose for her background. The single purple flower works to balance the photo. The vertical cluster is so dainty and pretty and the combination of violet with the soft green is very serene.

This layout by Pssequimages really showcases one of the painted papers from the kit. It complements the lovely photo perfectly. I like the way she used matching frames for both the word art and the photo. The cluster across the bottom of the page is gorgeous and I also like the way she included the musical staff in the cluster and added it to the background also.

I’ve come to the end of my post and thanks for reading along. I hope you will join me over the next several weeks to view the inspiring layouts I’ve found in the galleries using the kits you purchase in the bundle. Thanks and have a creative week!
