Frame with Tags! 0
I love the way the tags create cute little "frames". I used the tag frames to frame accent photos from my baby's first birthday party. I measured the size of the opening in the cut and then sized my photos slightly larger than that in photoshop before sending them to be printed. I was able to trim them and adhere them behind the tag frames.
Flower Background with Fruit! 0
I chose the strawberry shaped die as my inspiration for this page. I initially thought it looked like a fun heart shape, but as I looked a little further, it looked more like a flower petal to me. So, I decided to create a fun (and easy!) background for my scrapbook page using the Fruit Basket paper pad and die set.
It was really simple and easy to go - everything in the kit is all pulled together for you so there is not a lot of fussing around either! I love the cute sentiments in the clear stamps in the Fruit Basket kit and added some of those sentiments to finish off my page.
Sit back and see how the whole project came together!

Fruit Salad! 1
Mary-Ann Maldonado here with you today. How fun has this Fruit Basket Shaker Kit been all month? I have to tell you that it has been really fun for me. I couldn't help but create a layout with this crazy Godson of mine and his cooky antics.
I started my layout with a FREE cut file Wreath from Paper Issues.
This started my base for layering my fruit.
Here is a close up of the wreath. I did bring in some random die cuts and punches to use to help embellish the wreath a bit more than the cut file. The cut file was the perfect starting point to get a round circle. I also hung the appropriate fruit from the vines that coordinated with the blossom Pom Poms.
I found it a little easier to create the wreath effect with loose fruit. So I assembled them individually and then layered them and moved them around until I like the positions.
Adding vines and leaves within the fruit helped with the empty spaces and tied the wreath in to the bottom as well.
There is nothing like a good fruit salad, and that is what I provided you with today. Don't forget, Queen & Company also sells extra shaker refills in the store.
