Cottage Garden Layout

Hi Everyone,

Since the new SBC 3.0 comes with the new Cottage Garden kit I thought I would share a layout using this fantastic kit. I love the colours and textures in this kit. They are perfect for outdoor layouts.

I started this layout by using the free template that was offered on the CM project centre website. Then I added papers and embellishments from the the Cottage Garden kit. To make it a double page layout I copied the template to a second page and switched some things around so it wasn't exactly the same but still had flow.

I am really happy with this double page layout. I like how the colours in Cottage Garden enhance my outdoor pictures of the kids and I love the subtle textures and flourishes throughout the papers.

If you haven't already upgraded to 3.0 now is the time. Especially if you haven't already purchased this kit. I think this is my favourite kit and since making the purchase a few months ago the majority of my pages have included something from the Cottage Garden collection.

Enjoy and Happy Crafting,



  1. absolutely adorable. What is 3.0? Is it from Creative memories? I really want to start doing digital layouts but not really sure where to start.

  2. Hi Bridget,

    SBC 3.0 is short for Storybook Creator 3.0. It is the latest version of Storybook Creator Plus from Creative Memories. It just became available to the public September 1. If you are interested in doing digital layouts then I would highly recommend it. I am not very computer savvy and I find the storybook software very user friendly.
