How We Used Amy Tangerine Products in Our Up & Away Kits


Our design team has been working with the Amy Tangerine items in the April Cocoa Daisy kits and wanted to share their layouts with all of you. Let’s begin with a look at what Korrie-ann has created using the Up and Away pocket and classified memory keeping kits.

I have always wanted to try a rainbow layout so when I first saw the Up And Away kit my head started spinning with ideas. To start with I painted my rainbow using my concentrated watercolours and as always, I get carried away and can’t stop once I’ve started. I ended up with the splats at the bottom of the page too.”

“Next, I chose the paper with crosses and cut it into 1-inch strips. The strips were separated into colours to create my rainbow. I chose a pocket card from Amy Tangerine for my layout and I layered it with a piece of scrap left from the paper I cut into strips. The rainbow paper popping out behind the pocket cards is actually another pocket card from the Up and Away pocket kit. I cut out the blue hot air balloon to use on the right side of the page and the backside was the rainbow design.”

“For my title, I used the Amy Tangerine alpha stickers and the rub-ons from the Classified Kit. The rub-ons also come with a sheet of white designs and if you look within my rainbow, I have used these to add a little extra detail.”

Such an uplifting layout and love the rainbow Korrie-ann created from our exclusive papers! Now let’s see what Rachel has for us.

“For this special Amy Tangerine post, I wanted to honor the cheery and whimsical essence that is Amy Tangerine by making a pocket page layout for my memory planner. It’s the beginning of the month, so I don’t have pictures yet, but this cute pocket page layout will act as a cheery dashboard in my planner to remind me to be kind, present, choose the bright side and make each day count. As we get further into the month I will add photos that embody these sentiments to the open pockets on the back side of my pocket page.”

“The 2×2 pocket format is so fun to play with! To start, I trimmed papers from the Memory Keeping Classified Kit, the glassine bag the bows came in, and the packaging from the Amy Tangerine stickers sheets to a 2×2 inch size for the background of each pocket.”

“Next, I pulled a mix of Amy Tangerine stickers and rub-on’s that came in the Memory Keeping Classified Kit, along with the exclusive sticker sheet from the Planner Kit to build little vignettes on each pocket card. I tried to have at least three element of varying shape, color or size on each of the pocket cards.”

“That said, I think the key to this process is NOT to overthink it. Go with your gut and just stick those elements down! Once the page was done, I added white card stock as photo placeholders on the flip side of the pocket insert. Lastly, and the most satisfying part, I added the pocket page into my Happy Planner. I think this pocket page will be just the encouragement I need to stay bright and to find fresh ways to get creative in April!”

“I have a process video up on my YouTube channel if you are interested in seeing how this project came together.”

Rachel’s 2×2 pockets are adorable! This is a wonderful way to use kit items and to create a reminder to keep our eye on the light at the end of the tunnel.
