Swirlydoos July Kit Reveal Blog Hop

Welcome to the Swirlydoos "MADAME"
July kit reveal blog hop party!

If you came here from our EXTREMELY talented guest designer - Gerry's blog, then you are on the right track. If not, go back to the Swirlydoos blog and start from there. We have some amazing projects for you to see today! Make sure to leave a comment on ALL of the blogs for a chance to win prizes for participation in this hop. Also, be sure to check out Swirlydoos on Facebook and "Like Us" too!

Oh my... I have been waiting to get this "Madame" kit - delicious Prima and Kaisercraft papers with perfect embellishments. I am really "digging" teal and peach this season so this was my ultimate PERFECT kit! I decided to make this first project a summer display layout (for my fireplace mantle) so I used an elegant stock image (from Pion Design) instead of a personal photo.

Click on images for larger view.

Note that I have ONLY used the main kit contents for this layout and a step-by-step layout tutorial will be posted on the Swirlydoos forum later today. This is the amazingly beautiful kit sketch that I used as inspiration - so gorgeous!

Here is a close up of the yummy flowers in the main kit!

For my second layout, this is a picture of my dad posing with his family when he was just a little boy. They were re-united once immigrating to Canada from Portugal. I added some bits Dusty Attic chipboard flourishes and title from my stash but everything else is from the kit.


I used this Kaisercraft sketch (Saturday sketch for July #1) as inspiration -- so easy to make it "your own". I flipped it to better suit my photo.


Here is a closer view of details.

Lastly for today, I made a card using the kit contents (papers, flowers and bling) to surround my Dusty Attic "trinkets and treasures" themed ATC. I started off by using the casing from DA words and some mini shells.

Here is a close-up of the ATC portion surrounded by the amazing bling in the main kit.

You have until midnight, Eastern time, on Wednesday 7/10 to complete the hop. Winners will be announced on the Swirlydoos Blog on Thursday 7/11. 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 sentence.

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

Here is a peek at the Swirlydoos "Madame" main kit and add-ons. To become a subscriber and never miss a gorgeous Swirlydoos kit click here. Got to www.swirlydoos.com to see more details about this beautiful kit.
