Hello Friends! 

It's Kristine with you today and I'll be sharing a layout and a card I created with the St. Patrick's Day Simple Set. 

You are probably thinking why would she show us St Patricks Day at the end of April! Well this is why ... it's not a St. Patty's day layout and I want to show you how you can use a THEMED kit into something more " generic ". 

I created a layout using the kit but I used mostly the flowers, hears, and tried to avoid the shamrocks and more greenish colored paper. I apsolutly LOVE the pink in this kit and I really wanted to focus on that color and the flowers. 

I cut up some shapes using a few metal dies I have - such as tags, banners, and circle shapes. This allowed me to use some sections of the 3x4 cards that come in the kit. I cut up a few pieces to create my own diecuts such as the "Charmed Life". This allows you to stretch those kits and use them even if it's not a St. Patricks Day or any themed layout!

Here is another close up of the layout - of course I added pop dots and journal strips. My layouts would not be complete if I didn't add those! 

I also created a card - using the sticker sheet I used the Happy & the Day sticker. I left out the St. Patricks. See what I did there!? Yes.. I made something different from a themed sticker. 

I hope you give this kit a try because it is really beautiful. You can see that you do not need themed photos to use a themed kit!
