I hope you are enjoying your December Swirlydoos kits by now. "All that Glitters" is a definitely a sparkly, glittery kit. Now, I've had more time to create so I'd like to share more layouts made with this beautiful kit.

For this first one, I tackled the round die cut wreath. I say tackled because usually the 12x12 die cuts are a challenge for me. I don't like to just mount them on cardstock whole and scrap over the top of them. I'd rather alter or modify them in some way.

Here, I had the wreath hanging off the lower corner of the cardstock. I added some subtle inking with the Prima reverse brick stencil. The ornaments were fussy cut and added around the picture along with some of the silver leaves and the pink leaves from last month's kit. Watered down gesso was splattered all over to mimic snow. The photo was converted to gray scale so the colors in it would not clash with the pink and blues of the papers.

Here's a close up of that gorgeous ribbon with the bling.

I added a wooden word over the top of the ribbon using gloss medium.

Here's my second one featuring a picture of my son way back in December of 1994. I distressed along the middle of the white lace paper and added some blue underneath. A loooooong time ago we received some angel wings in a Swirlydoos kit. I finally found a layout for them! I cut the feather wings in half and used them under the picture. The flowers are from the Swirlydoos store and the velvet leaves are from the current kit.

Here's a few close-ups of those amazing angel wings.

I added a few small doilies from a past kit to add some layers under the picture.

Another wooden word title added on top of the flowers.

Here's my last layout for the second reveal. A lot of fussy cutting here. This may be my last layout with this kit. If so, stay tuned for the "Scrap your Scraps" tutorial!
