Swirlydoos March Kit - Take 2

I've made 2 more DT projects using the glorious French Quarter kit from Swirlydoos for March. Here is my matching gift box and card set (I'm saving it to give to my hubby - we are planning on going on a 10-year anniversary trip).

CARD JOURNALING READS: "Thank you for the wonderful family you have given me... but I miss waking up on weekend mornings just with you (in a quiet house). 10 years down, only about 20 more to go - until we have that to ourselves again, Happy Anniversary!"

I used the OUAS challenge as my inspiration and used the sketch in 2 ways different ways for each project. Here is the challenge criteria and sketch image.

Here is a close-up of the gift box - all of the product was in the March main kit including that watch (no add-ons used).

Here is a close-up of the matching card. I used Prima flower packaging and Petaloo flowers from the add-on kit.

All those little half circles to create the borders were left overs from my reveal day layout below (cut to make the postage stamp border). I keep all my scraps, LOL.

Here is the template I used for the gift box. My "unit" measurement was 1.75 inches.
And finally this is an image of the Swirlydoos March kit.

Here are all the glorious add-ons that Krissy (Swirlydoos Owner) puts together EVERY month to coordinate with the main kit. I personally can't live without the flower add-on (top right image).

I've made 3 layouts, a gift box and a card with this main kit (plus the flower add-on) and I STILL have enough materials left over to create one more project... if only I had the time, LOL. I just got notice that my April kit is almost here so gotta get creating for that reveal soon!

Your projects are really beautiful Vicky, love the combination of black with soft pink. The kit looks amazing, so many beautiful goodies in it. Happy 10 year anniversary, for when ever it is. You will have your house to yourself again and when you do you will be counting the days till your children are coming back to visit, and then you wont want them to go ha. xx

I so would have loved to continue my Swirly kits but it was impossible to have them in transit for a month. Really gorgeous stuff in all of them. Love the beautiful gift box - happy anniversary! - and the wonderful page too! xoxxo
