Scrap That! NOV Kit Reveal/Blog Hop

If you have just arrived here from Shona’s blog you are in the correct place! If not, head back to the Scrap That! blog for the blog hop order and links. This is your last stop today so let's dig right in!

Today I’m going to share with you my projects using the oh so elegant, Scrap That! November “Putting on the Glitz” Kit, featuring the Glitz Design Vintage Blue Paper Collection combined with a few of MME's Lost and Found papers.

For my first design "love", I used the gorgeous Dusty Attic birdcage and flowers in the main kit to create a romantic page of my hubby and I the day before our wedding at sunset (Dec. 1st - in the Bahamas) almost 10 years ago! I added a white doily and Green Tara trim to the kit contents to add more soft texture to this page. The mix of papers in this kit are just so perfect.

A simple coat of Tim Holtz crackle white paint and soft brown chalk ink (Prima ink is in the kit!) to finish the chipboard...

This layout was also based on the fantastic kit sketch by Robin Shakoor, I just flipped it.

For my second layout, "the wait" - yup me a few days before delivering my first born. My hubby insisted on snapping a picture so this is me freshly out of the shower, without a drop of makeup and damp hair, LOL. I'm glad he made me take it. Since yellow is my favorite color (pink is my second), this layout is soooooo me. I added a doily, pretty Green Tara lace and Dusty Attic chipboard from my stash to compliment the super gorgeous flower and bling in the kit. Again, I just love the mix of paper collections in this kit.

I used this pretty sketch as inspiration:

Here is a close up of the Prima flower I used - so glam! These will be a special purchase for this kit, stay tuned.

Lastly, I did an off the page project. My kids bug me to dress-up every Halloween so I made myself a mask using the kit's navy cardstock and my MME paper scraps from the last layout. With a bit of string pearls and a few craft feathers, I was able to use the kit contents (and my deco scissors) to make a simple mask (but took a whole lot of time to create, LOL).

I used Stickles and diamond dust to coat every inch of the plain cardstock. It really sparkles in sunlight.

Here is a peek at the main kit:

Here is a peek at the add-on:

As you can see, I have many more goodies left over to play with and a few sheets of paper... so I am working on another layout right now :)
