Swirlydoos July Kit Reveal/Blog Hop

Welcome to Swirlydoos' July "Paper Dolls"
Kit Reveal and Blog Hop Block Party!

If you came here from Pion Design's blog, then you are on the right track. If not, go back to Swirlydoos' blog and start from there. We have some amazing projects for you to see today! This July "Paper Dolls" kit is really packed with beautiful goodies, featuring Kaisercraft's Lakehouse collection with a mix of Pion Design papers.

For my first project, I made a display layout for my daughter's room. I added some beautiful 2Crafty chipboard and a doily from my stash. I love the Prima resin birdbath in this kit and the divine flower add-on is a must have!
Just click on all images below to enlarge.


Here is a close-up of the ornate dragonfly chipppy:

Here is a close-up of the blooms and the parisian border:

For my second project I only added a Dusty Attic chipboard clock and a bit of bling - everything else is from the main kit and flower add-on. The title is actually created from the excess strip you cut off the edge of the Kaiser paper!

Here is a close-up of the cluster under the picture:

For my third project, I made a new display for my mantle (I do this every season). I layered 2 of the Pion papers. The chipboard, doily and ribbon are from my stash. The Kaiser sentiment paper is so beautiful in this kit and the little Petaloo butterflies are such a cute touch!

Here is a close-up of the heavenly Prima flower in the middle of my bow:

I used the beautiful July kit sketch for my mantle display:

For my last project, I altered a plain pink headband with some trim and flowers from the kit. My daughter adores headbands and I love making them for her!

Well, I still have plenty of supplies to create yet another layout so I will be working on that soon! These kits are really packed and a great value!  My projects are made with 80% kit contents from the main kit and the flower add-on. 

You have until midnight, eastern time, on Monday, July 9th to complete the hop. Winners will be announced on the Swirlydoos Blog on July 10th. In order to qualify to win here is what you need to do:

1: Visit all of the blogs and leave a comment on each. This way we know you were there. Become a follower if you're not already. Take your time. There are REALLY beautiful things to see along the way.

2: Before you leave each blog, look for the “special” words and write it down. Once you have visited all the blogs and collected all the special words, they will create a QUESTION.

3: Finally, go back to the Swirlydoos blog and leave a comment letting us know how much fun you had, tell us the QUESTION that was created with all of the special words collected, and THEN ANSWER it! Can't wait to hear from you.

My special word is : DID

The party continues over at Angelica's blog. Have fun!


Please note: I used my favorite Helmar adhesives (Premium craft glue for paper, 450 Quick dry for embellishments and Zapdots to add dimension) on all of these projects. The brand new USA site is www.helmarusa.com and the Aussie site is www.helmar.com.au.
