The Layout of the Week for May 21 goes to Cheryl for this gorgeous page. I love the stenciled roses and those resin pieces. But what really caught my eye were the handmade flowers using cardstock and vellum and heat embossing.

Congratulations, Cheryl!!!!

Happy Saturday everyone, today I have a Saturday  video  for Swirlydoos.

This video is a comparison/how to on some of the items we have gotten in past Mixed Media kits. Over the past few months we have gotten some Inka Golds and some Prima Art alchemy Waxes. These items are similar so I am showing you how I think they are the same and different and how I like to use the.

We have also gotten some 3D molding paste and Ferro.m What are these and how do you use them? Watch the video and see how I use them, they are both really very easy and fun to use.

Here is the video:

Good morning! Just want to share a few highlights with you. Here's what's going on this week at Swirlydoos in regards to challenges.

The ATF aka All that Flutters challenge is going on all month. Use the most recent kit to create a layout with something that flutters: a butterfly, dragonfly, fairy, bird-you get the idea! It can be a layout, a card, a canvas or another creation that you made this month.

Here's the link to enter your creation.

Another favorite is the RR aka Round Robin. You can find the latest entries here.

This one was created by Kathi and ended up being the LOTW!


Oh, don't forget the monthly sketch challenge!

The Layout of the Week goes to Kathi for this amazing page. Her layout takes the photo of a garden gate and extends it out into the page so well with the punched and die cut layers underneath and the incredible cluster of flowers and tendrils and metal gate.

Congratulations, Kathi!!!!

Good Saturday morning, Swirly Savages!
Grab your favorite silicone molds, an inexpensive wood box from your local craft chain store and your basic tools - we're going to change this

to this

 using the gorgeous "Wildflower" April Mediums Kit from Swirlydoos!
What? No molds? No problem! Use pieces of lace or other textured trim around the sides and a flower or a metal piece for the top.
The magic comes from a coating of black gesso and the incredible Finnabair Metallique Waxes from Prima that Krissy included in the Mediums Add-On! 


I've created a tutorial on Snapguide; here's the link.

Hello, Swirly Savages! 

Check out the challenges we have going on at Swirlydoos. There is enough to keep you busy, for sure. So let's check it out.

First, the monthly sketch challenge featuring another wonderful sketch created by Kim.


Use the April kit to enter the All that Flutters contest. Here’s how this Challenge works: Using the April  “Wildflower” Kit and Add-Ons, create a project (scrapbook layout, canvas, card, tag, OTP project, it’s up to you) that includes something that “flutters” – butterflies, dragonflies, bees, ladybugs, birds, fairies – we all have these among our embellies, dies and punches, right? 

The ATF challenge is open through the end of May.

How about the RR (Round Robin)? The first round of layouts will be posted on May 8th. So go check them out! Watch for June sign ups the last week of May.

Here's Kim's example for the RR this month.


Happy scrapping!

Come back next week for an update on the May challenges.

The Layout of the Week goes to Donna for this gorgeous page. I love the way that she's taken advantage of the colors and design of the pattern paper and embellishments to create her page. Her clusters of flowers and vines and trinkets (did you catch that small photo?) and the way that she used the Collectables die cuts to frame her beautiful images.

Congratulations, Donna!!!!

Congrats to Hanne for LOTW with this beauty. She always has great photos to scrap and these are so well done. I especially love how she was thinking outside the box with the chippie. I saw the chippie as a bunch of feathers. Hanne saw it as an opportunity to be cut apart and used as leaves.

Hey everyone Kim here, today I am sharing a video on how I created this altered artist palette. We got the palette in the Swirlydoos November *Market Street* monthly kit. I've been holding onto it for just the right project and this happened to be it.
Artist pallette

I dug deep into my stash for some items on this project. I also dug deep into the Swirlydoos store and some of my past Swirlydoos kits.  No worries, I also added some of the latest and greatest goodies on here as well.

I really love how this turned out. Here is another close up:

Congratulations, Donna! This layout is gorgeous. Love the paper you chose for your background. It works so well with those pretty blue flowers.

Hello, scrappy people!

I've been anxious to share how I made the Kaiser heart shelf that was part of the February Swirlydoos technique add on.

Here's some close ups so you can see the texture. I mixed mica powder with the clear crackle medium to create the look.

Here's a close up of the paper clay leaves using an IOD mold.


And, here's the video tutorial.
