***G***Swirlydoos Vintage Traditions/ZVA Creative


 Having gone to CHA last month left me with a lot of mojo!! It kind of put me back in the flower making mode again. I also pulled out my Cricut Expression that was wrapped in cobwebs...JK...It just needed a little push out of my cabinet. I just  love my Iron Works 2 cartridge because there are so many beautiful designs. I am also addicted to Martha Stewarts punches, and that is the Rain Drop design you see around the page. Despite my daughters love of tattoos and her love for the MotoCross sport, she is a girly girl. So pink it is for this LO featuring Gabbie.
Vintage Traditions is the August Kit for Swirlydoos. Packed with beautiful product, I only added the Zva flourishes and leaves from my ZVA Creative DT products. Everything else is in the kit.  I cut the design underneath my photo using the Cricut Iron Works 2 cart and colored it with GlimmerMist in Olive Vine and toned it down a bit with Timberline. The chip board letter in the kit was sprayed with the same 2 colors.



All of the bigger flowers were handmade. I used the Tim Holtz Tattered Pinecone for the roses and Tattered Florals underneath some of them. I toned down one of the pink peices in the card stock add on with Glimmer Mist in Vintage pink and toned it down furthere using Lindy's Moon Shadow Mist in Moonlit Mulberry. I cut apart the Petaloo vines and stuck then here and there. The leaves are ZVA 36pc leaves #I - 2" - [FL-04CA-110]. 


Just another closeup of the Tattered Pinecone roses.


This beautiful Zva flourish comes 2 to a pack and is Imposing - Clear Crystal -[CR-05CA-114]
