This month I had the good fortune of being chosen by Scrapping Great Deals to play with a customer design kit and show off what I created here on my blog, today.
It was a beautiful kit with papers from MME and We R Memory Keepers, pretty little brads and clear dew drops (which I love), a ladybug stamp, cat's eye chalk ink, chipboard flourishes, pretty ruched ribbon, gelly thickers, plus, plus, plus! Needless to say I had a lot of fun with this kit!
Some of the paper was glittery, and oh so pretty! I used pictures of my friends' (Heather and Gary) two beautiful little girls and their newborn son. The pictures are so adorable and as soon as I saw them I knew they'd be perfect for these papers. As a thank you for allowing me to use and post the pictures of their children I am gifting these two layouts to Heather. I added stickles, glimmer mist and clear gems from my own stash.
It's a little hard to tell in this picture however, I partially hand cut around some of the flowers in the paper to pull them forward and layer them over the green background behind the pics.
And some other papers felt a bit vintage to me so I decided to use a picture taken of my sister in 1973 when she was just a wee thing! Cute, eh? I remember this dress, I had a pink one to match... they were so pretty but were super itchy to wear! Oh well, I guess there is a price to pay for looking good! From my own stash I added the ribbon strip flower with button centre , which I made earlier in the month, you can check it out here.
And this is a little birthday card I made with some of the leftovers in this kit.
Thanks for looking! And thank you to Sheila, Mike and staff at Scrapping Great Deals for the opportunity to play with a great kit!
