My Creative Scrapbook May Kit Reveal, part 1


Hi, there! Today is Reveal Day over at My Creative Scrapbook. I'm bringing you my first two projects created with the Limited Edition Kit. 

This month's Kit is a mix of Blue Fern Studios' Montage papers along with some new Lemoncraft papers, the Heart Painted collection. Talk about gorgeous overload in just the papers alone! Then add in the beautiful Prima and Marion Smith flowers, Blue Fern Studios chipboard and other mixed embellies and you have sheer shabby chic scrapper's heaven!

I've scrapped a couple of photos of my daughters taken last Christmas. They were taken quickly with my phone and aren't the best but they sure make me happy! I had some mixed media fun with my fave Donna Downey stencil, molding paste and LSG Grab a Guy Gold mist. My Blue Fern Studios dangle chippy was painted with white gesso, inked and then randomly heat embossed with Stampendous Aged Gold. 

I did the unthinkable and cut a title with my Silhouette. :) Added a tag, a bow and some journaling. The butterfly was fussy cut from one of the papers. 

Here are some close-ups:


"Pure Beauty"

Oh, this one was fun! I was going to scrap a totally different photo but I inadvertently dropped this vintage one on my paper stack and loved how this photo looked on the pale yellow paper. Then when I was deciding on embellies, I thought I'd use the little fussy cut tag with the boat full of flowers. Then .. I decided to transform it into a book .. having been inspired by a couple of artistic friends. 

Initially I was inspired by Angelica Franssen's Timeless Beauty layout. At first glance I thought there was a book on the layout but there isn't. I quickly realized that I must have had Kathleen White's Helmar project still in my head when I looked at Angelica's page. Kathleen created a fabulous book to sit atop her Eerie Tale's box. So, I mimicked that design to place on my layout. In love!!! This little book was so much fun to create. 

There is also a whole lot of fussy cutting going here! The butterflies, some of the florals, the birdcage and bird as well as the "PURE" subtitle which was cut from watercolor paper and inked.  I used some Inklings to create my gold edge on the book pages. 

Of course, I can't leave out the sweet chipboard from Stay True to God and the little alphas. As usual, I have created texture and color on the background. 

Here are your close-ups:
(I did forget to add my last minute "blending" gesso before I took the photos but it's been done!)

Thanks so much for coming by! I'll be back on Friday or Saturday with my other two projects created with this Kit. I seriously couldn't pick a fave layout this time. They all have a little something special in my mind.

See you then!
