Scrap That! Reveal and Blog hop

Welcome to the Scrap That! October "Bella Rosa" kit reveal and blog hop. If you have arrived from Shona's blog you are in the right place and this is your last stop today. This hop officially ends on Sunday at midnight MST. This kit features the Prima Romantique and Creative Imaginations (IOD) Ddevotion papers. OK, now let's dig right in to this reveal!

My first layout "That is Love" is of my two youngest last summer playing in the shade. I just LOVE these Prima papers! Only the background cardstock is from my stash on this, everything else was in the kit - including the new sweet pea border DA chipboard!


Here I made some flowers using the technique item Glubers and lace and added the Kaiser flowers are centres.

Design Tip: Simply use my no sew lace flower tutorial, minus the messy glue to make these flowers.

My second layout "caress" was taken on the day we brought my daughter home. Such a tender sibling moment. Again, I just LOVE these Prima papers and the gorgeous flowers in this kit. The background cardstock was from my stash and the doilies were featured in last month's kit. Isn't the Prima lace/bling divine?


Design Tip: Simply use two tones of green chalk ink on the chipboard for an easy vine (I cut mine in 3 pieces).

This was TCR palette I used as inspiration for this layout:

... and guess what? Thanks to Lori for letting me post it two days early, it got featured at TCR - chosen by Solange Marques (she's SOOO talented!)


For my last layout "Bubbles", I wanted to show that you can easily use this kit for a boy layout. I added dark orange cardstock and DA chipboard from my stash on this one, along with the berries in the middle of the flower. I just loved the Prima branch/vine in the kit, so perfect for a fall layout. This layout has a mix of the perfectly paired Prima and CI papers.


Design Tip: Make a distressed flower using my vintage style flower technique and flower punches/dies instead of circles - I used 3 large and 2 medium.

Here is the gorgeous kit sketch I used designed by our very own DT member Robin Shakoor.

Here is a peek at the kit (the DA border will be added to the kit too!):
