Swirlydoos February Kit Reveal Blog Hop

Welcome to Swirlydoos February Kit Reveal Blog Hop BLOCK PARTY!

If you came here from Paulien's beautiful reveal, 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 and as a bonus we have 2 manufacturer blogs that are joining in the fun! There are 3 prize packs up for grabs so make sure to follow along and have fun! The "Bonjour Mon Doux" kit featuring Kaisercraft's "sweet nothings" collections will not disappoint!

I am so excited to be revealing my first projects on this design team! For my first layout, "True Beauty", this is my daughter when she was one - her first Easter. I was inspired by TCR palette #96 for this layout. I have been dying to play with this gorgeous Kaisercraft collection and Swirlydoos kit and flower add-on was all so amazingly well coordinated and made these projects such a breeze to complete! I love the lace/pearl trim in the kit! Click on image to enlarge.

Here is a close-up of the pretty flowers from the add-on kit. Click on image to enlarge.

For my second project "those eyes", I used the beautiful kit sketch as inspiration. This is a picture of my son's sparkling brown eyes. I paired the Kaisercraft papers with this fantastic teal FabScraps one from the kit. I added a fabulous Dusty Attic chipboard piece from my stash to add depth and pair well with the wood feel of the paper. Click on image to enlarge.

Don't you love that teal flower branch and those cute white flowers with crystals. Those are in the main kit!!! Click on image to enlarge.

For my last layout for today, "giggle", this is me at a year old. Since pink is my favorite color to scrap, this paper collection suited me just fine. I added some Dusty Attic chipboard flourishes from my stash to add more brown and interest to this page. Click on image to enlarge.
