Hello Swirly Sisters! I hope you had a very festive Thanksgiving!

It's my turn today to share some more projects I made using the November kit, Beloved. This was such a beautiful kit to work with. One you must have!

This is the layout I made for the DT challenge. We all scrapped the same photo and had the gals guess. Did you guess correctly? A huge thank you to our Pegs for sharing her priceless photo with us. This was definitely a fun challenge and I hope we get to do it again soon.
The Kasiercraft Rusty Harmony pattern papers are so gorgeous. I couldn't chose between what sheets I should use. So, I cut strips from left over scraps and one of the sheets that had like 6 designs, distressed then layered them.

For my final project I made a shadow box canvas.  I made plenty of layers for that 3D effect.

Hi everybody! Today I can finally show you my pages with the amazingly beautiful November kit from Swirlydoos! I have had so much fun creating with this kit - the colors are fabulous and everything goes perfectly together. This kit was so worth waiting for!
So, prepare yourself for lots of photos :)
Layout number one is my sketch layout. Here's the sketch - amazing, isn't it!?


I have used flowers from the main kit, metal pieces from the embellie-kit and embellies from the main kit. Love the butterfly stamps!

My second layout is a bit shabbier - and if you know me you know I love to create shabby!!
The Decorative Scroll #1 is from Dusty Attic, and you can find it in Swirlydoos boutique HERE. It is one of my all-time-fav Dusty Attic chipboard pieces. I have painted it with white gesso and decorated with locks from Prima and Pearls, which can be found in this months kit.
A few close-ups:
Lots of flowers from the flower add-on:

I did a little stamping here and there with the Prima butterfly stamp from the main kit:

My third layout is also a shabby one, but in another color-scheme:
For this layout, I have used flowers and embellishment from the mainkit. The French Flourish Border is another Dusty Attic piece that can be found in the Swirlydoos shop. I have painted it white and decorated with locks and pearls.

My fourth layout is less shabby, but still romantic with lots of flowers from the flower add-on. I have also used super cute butterflies, made my Angelica. Adore these!
I have painted the chipboard piece from Blue Fern Studios with white gesso, misted with peach mist and then embossed with white embossing powder.

If you managed to look at all my photos all the way down here, I have a little bonus for you! Do you remember the Design Team Challenge in my last Swirlydoos post? Well, I don't know if you guessed right, but here is my layout:
Thank you for stopping by today!

Hi everyone! Today I want to share with you my second reveal layouts with the November Kit Beloved. I really enjoyed working with this always it is loaded with beautiful paper and embellishments!
The paper is from the KaiserCraft Rustic Harmony collection and the flowers are gorgeous Prima flowers along with so much more!!  Here are the layouts I created with this gorgeous kit.

Hope you enjoyed my layouts and be sure to stop by daily for more inspiring reveals from out designers.


The November kit has been a favorite for me!  I love the color palette of the featured papers, Kaisercraft's Rustic Harmony.  It appeals to my love of vintage scrapping!

This layout features one of my favorite subjects, sometimes not so sweet Tisha!  Peggy and the girls gave Tisha a nickname when they visited me back in September, Me-Me.  Why Me-Me?  Well 'cause in Tisha's mind, it's all about me.  She insists on being the center of attention and will joyfully push poor Noodle out of the way so that she is getting all the petting and treats!

I wanted to add some sparkle to my layout so I dabbled a bit of paint and Stickles on the Kaiseercraft roses that came in the flower add on and then nestled the flowers in a vine from the Swirlydoos Boutique  to create my floral cluster.  This vines are just leaves and are perfect for creating your own cluster.  There are 5 different but similar vines in the store, you really need some of these!  ;-)

These letters came in the embellishment add on and I just inked over them a tad and then outlined the edges with a gold Sharpie pen.

For this layout I used a really vintage photo from my husband's side of the family.  I used some borders from the sticker sheet in the main kit on the edges of my layout and layered some texture from my stash underneath.  I used Art Anthology's Stone Effects in Sandstone to do some stenciling in the background.

The brown flowers are from a previous kit and the others are from my stash.

That's a Creative Embellishments swirl  underneath the photo embossed with Shimmerz EnamelZ Molten Metal embossing powder, both from my stash.

And last, a simple layered card.  I used some Core'dinations cardstock for the card.  Then I layered on the green floral paper that I diecut with a Spellbinder's die, added a tag, a sentiment sticker, a few embellies and all done!
