Now, are you ready to see some of my kit creations?!! 

Layout using the Main kit and personal stash

On my first layout, I've used a Prima gate stencil and some molding paster for a bit of fun. Then added some fussy cut flowers from the Ladies Diary paper along with a favorite Dusty Attic branch that I snipped in to 3 pieces. I've used the ivory Petaloo flowers from the kit as well as some small Primas from my stash. I love love love the yarn that Kate put in the kit this month and now I want to go buy some more! Didn't it just make the yummiest bow?  This layout is based on a sketch by my sweet friend and co-leader, Leah Schaeffer of Stuck on U Sketches.

Layout using the Main kit, EAO and FAO 

I thought I would do something a bit different and went with one of my dgd's horse photos again.  I thought that this Victorian lady might have a few horses in her life! I've covered my paper with some gesso to really make my photo and the fussy cut images pop. The Prima flower is from the EAO abd the small Prima roses are from the FAO. Again, I've used a  Dusty Attic piece that I painted multiple colors. It is really more Rust in color than Red. Of course, you can see that I've used a Martha Stewart PAP that I've neglected for a bit. 

Next, I decided I would create something besides a layout this time and came up with this adorable shoe using the Main Kit and the FAO.  I will be presenting a tutorial on this shoe during the month of September. Stay tuned! 

Layout using the Main Kit, EAO and FAO. 

I wanted to see if I could get a "guy" layout out of these Ladies Diary papers and came up with this  page of my dgs, Isaac. He's young enough to still get away with a few flowers, right? Anyway, this layout is based on the wonderful sketch provided by above by DT member and sketch designer, Amarylis Doria. It was really fun layering my papers and using the gorgeous doily from the kit, along with some cool Prima Bling and Zva and Petaloo blooms! I also snuck in a doily flower. Tutorial coming up on that in October! 

Card using Main Kit only along with personal stash

Lastly .. yes, I know... so many projects and I still have lots of product left!
  I also put together this really great card and love how it looks! 

 I'm sure you are ready to move on to the last leg of the Hop.  Thanks so much for coming by!
