Welcome to Swirlydoos November Kit Reveal Blog Hop BLOCK PARTY!!! That's right, we are having a party and you are all invited. If you came here from clearsnap.blogspot.com then you are on the right track. If not, go back to Swirlydoo's blog and pick up the trail from there. We have some amazing projects for you to see today and as a bonus we have 3 manufacturer blogs that are joining in the fun!! But wait! We also have a Guest Designer along for the ride this month, Natasha Naranjo Aquirre!!! *confetti in the air and noise makers galore* There are 5 prize packs up for grabs so make sure to follow along and have fun!! You could be a winner!!
Let's start with my first LO. The photo is my daughter Gabrielle. She was home from school a couple of weeks ago and I snapped a quick pic while we were on the floor playing Uno. We were having a pajama party by ourselves...lol... She made the most amazing Jerk Chicken that night. Working with the best Chefs at Epcot in Disney is giving her the best cultural experience in cuisine in the world! She loves her job!!
I created 3 different flowers for this LO. The daisy and the bigger flower were done with my tattered Florals die by Sizzix. The rose in the middle was done with one of my other favorite dies. The Rose Creations die created by Donna Salazar and manufactured by Spellbinders. I thought I would use it as Natasha has joined us this month, and for those of you who don't know, she is Donna Salazars Fly Girl (that's Design Team Coordinator!!) And I recently joined Girlie Grunge and love it!!
I was introduced to the Rose Creations die when Heartfelt Creations created a stamp from it. And sometime next week I will be doing a tutorial for the flower. So get out that Puffy Paint, we're playing with it again!
Just another closeup of the corner floral cluster. The leaves are also Spellbinders dies from 2 different sets.
I also did some machine sewing on the page as well as corset lacing. The brown flourish is a Sizzix Sizzlet die. The butterflies from my files at Swirlydoos.
Here is my take on the sketch. I have been experimenting with my Punch Around The Page punches using the corner punch and a regular edge punch. Great way to get more designs!!
I used my Tim Alterations die for the pink flowers and the green one from my Tattered Florals die. The leaves are a Sizzix die as well. I painted the Tower with this Great Claudia Helmuth paint that my lovely Friend Zandra (my Fairy Scrapmother) sent me. She lives near the Ranger Warehouse and went to a great sale, and she shared with me!! Thank you Zandra!! She also sent me great Ranger pop dots that I used behind the journaling plaque.
The butterfly is from my files at Swirlydoos. And the trail is ZVA!!! I'm anxiously waiting for my DT package.
Some more stitching closeups and the corner is a rubon in the kit.
This next LO is of my sisters grandaughter Nikki. She is the little redhead you see in some of my LO's. I am loving the greens blues and browns in the papers of the kit.
The flowers were created with the Tattered Florals die and I added the Kaiserkraft flowers to the middles. I adore the Prima birdsnests.
I found the journaling on Pinterest. I just created the words in Photoshop and cut them up then matted them .
I did some machine stitching and corset lacing once again. I fussy cut the little bird from the paper. The scalloped paper was done with a Crafters Workshop template. I think I have them all...And love each one!I just wrinkled and ink distressed the edges a little.
I folded back one corner and tucked in a flower and leaves. I used one of my corner punches for the circle following my tutorial.
You have until midnight, eastern time, on November 9th to complete the hop. In order to qualify to win here is what you need to do:
