Only a few more days!:)
This kit is beautiful. It has a tradition color palette of red and green with some hints of gold and red glittery embellishments.
Wowzers, didn’t Nicole do amazing projects with the November kit?!
I used the remainder of my kit to create two layouts, one of which I added a touch of burlap, stamping, and mist to add texture to the rich, beautiful papers.
…and my final layout also has a few additions. I created a leaf embellishment by stamping on the patterned paper and covering it with bronze embossing powder. The bronze embossing powder pulled the sheen out of the papers and added a nice compliment to the overall layout design. Other additions are the alphas, raffia, and the little acorn charm.
Stay tuned for sneak peeks of December’s kit…you’re going to love this one too!
I’m back with the rest of my November kit creations.
Like Tammy as soon as I saw the packaging the chipboard letters came in I knew I wanted to alter it.
The chipboard letter I altered with some chalk ink and then layered one of the jounraling spots over pattern paper and layered it all together with some pattern paper leaves (The bit of baker’s twine and chipboard phrase are from my stash).
My cricut machine has been getting quite the workout lately and I used it again for elements on this layout. The interlocking circles, paper feathers, and cursive title were all cut with my machine. Everything except the little pearls is from the kit.
After creating all my projects I always like to try and use up the bits and pieces on my scrap table to make a few cards. Here are a few I put together with some odds and ends from the kit.
I did add a stamp sentiment, some twine and ribbon, and the little mother of pearl button.
A few more items were added from my stash on this card as well. Stamps (sentiment and hexagon) and baker’s twine.
and . . . that’s a wrap.
I’ll be back however next week for a little peek at what is coming in December.
I altered the chipboard letters with a little chalk ink and to note the first ‘e’ was initially a ‘G’ and I cut off the tail since I wanted the e’s in my title to be different.
The leaf die cuts are one of my favorite elements from the kit. They don’t photograph well though and have a sheen to them. I also wanted to mention that they are double sided so if you don’t like the hash mark pattern they can be turned over.
The only thing I added to the kit was the small teal alphas.
Next up is another layout.
I went a little crazy with this one and decided to dust off my Cricut. I’ve been manipulating images and this was one I came up with recently. I ended up not liking the huge contrast the white cardstock was against the darker hues and so I darkened it with a little grey mist.
I added the enamel dots, chipboard letters for the title, and the white cardstock.
Hope you enjoy and I’ll be back next week to share a few more projects.
Are you ready to see my first two November kit projects? I loved working with the rich, bold colors of the SEI Mirelle line… so perfect for fall! First up is a layout of my little Gabe cutting Christmas Trees last year…
Item number two is an altered project using the package from the Alphas included in the kit. I made the flower embellishments by fan-folding patterned paper and sticking the ends together. So fun and easy!
The butterflies, burlap, and vintage buttons on this project are from my own stash but doesn’t the packaging and patterned paper make a fabulous base?
Stay tuned as I will post my other two projects on November 25th!
