Welcome to Swirlydoos' June Kit Reveal Blog Hop Block Party!!

 If you came here from Vicky Alberto 's blog, then you are on the right track.  If not, go back to Swirlydoos' blog and start from there.  We have some amazing projects for you to see today and as a bonus we have a very special guest joining in the fun and offering a prize!!

 "ANTIQUITIES" 

is the name of the fabulous June kit.  

This first layout show a photo of my daughter hanging out at the beach. Now that school is over until she starts her 12 week externship, and all she has right now is her fabulous job, she has lightened her load a bit and relaxing for once. I found the journaling on Pinterest. When I read it, I thought about her...


  I created the roses using the Tattered PInecone Die by Sizzix. Funny how I haven't made 1 pine cone yet. It sure makes pretty little roses!! The leaf die is also new. It is from CottageCutz. I die cut using card stock from the add on kit and sprayed it with Glimmer Mist in Olive Vine. I found another great flower die at Amazon for the layers beneath the Kaiser Craft flower. It has 6 sizes. Love adding to my flower die arsenal.


Just another part of the layout showing the flowers and vines.


Here is the journaling. I just love Pinterest for so many reasons. One being all of the quotes I collect! They are great for journaling. One thing I always have trouble with.


Love those little Pinecone roses!! While the Glimmer Mist was still a little damp on the leafy vine, I wrinkled them a little for added texture.


This next layout shows a photo of my husband and Gabbie when she was almost 2 years old. This kit is so versatile. It is perfect to scrap the men in your life. I just don't do that enough. That's because neither my son or husband will sit long enough for pictures. I used my post card edge tutorial for the background of my layout.

The Flower add on kit has the best selection of flowers! I took some of the sweet loose rose buds and wrapped a few of them around the Prima vine. I then tucked 2 more to the side of the larger Prima bloom. The small vines are pieces of the full  die cut from Cheery Lynn designs


Just a closer look at the floral cluster. 


I backed the pop out sticker tags with paper, punched a hole on the tops, studded it with an eyelet using my Cropadile and strung the ribbon from the kit through the holes. 

 

You can find a few butterfly files that I specifically created for this kit in the forums at Swirlydoos. Just go  HERE
 

The teeny Tiny little lettters are wonderful for adding teeny tiny little notes.

So cool to see how everyone combines the materials with other stuff to make it their own. You used orange accents and flowers on otherwise dark papers. It livens them up something awesome!! Loved Weekend Market already, but you gave me a new spark of inspiration. Orange + green... should try.

Wow, this blog-hopping is FUN!

Maureen Hayes said...

I am a flower girl as well, so I LOVED how you used them in all the layouts you featured. I was so touched by the layout you created with your husband and daughter! I think we all have the same problem with not having enough layouts with our "men" in them and this was really lovely. I am sure they will both treasure having that for years to come!
