Swirlydoos June Kit Reveal Blog Hop

Welcome to the Swirlydoos "Brass Shilling"
June kit reveal blog hop party!

If you came here from Angelica'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!

This classy kit is so versatile for any age, gender or anything you want to scrap about. The Kaisercraft 75 cents papers are soooo awesome! First up is a picture of my daughter as an infant in the kiddie pool. I created this layout to kick-off week 1 of the June Swirlydoos Round Robin Challenge. I did the doily and lace twist and then added Dusty Attic chipboard from my stash (the rest is all from the main kit). Don't you just LOVE that wide yellow ribbon?

A little close-up. I used glass bead gel on the chipboard (from a previous Swirlydoos kit).

Next is a photo printing "mistake" that I've held on to for a while of my boys as toddlers. I went for a minimalistic look... and did you notice? No flowers on this layout! That's a first for me.

Here is a close up of the Dusty Attic chipboard (from my stash) that I painted with the gold Silks paint in the kit. I love this paint - no gesso primer needed!

This is the pretty kit sketch I used as inspiration (as rotated):

For this next layout, I played off the orange flowers in my picture and used more of the gorgeous gold paint in the kit.

Here is a close up of the fabric flowers in the add-on and some DA chipboard from my stash.

Lastly for today, I have made a card to share.

You have until midnight, Eastern time, on Tuesday 6/4 to complete the hop. Winners will be announced on the Swirlydoos Blog on Wednesday 6/5. 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.

I still have LOTS more of my kit to play with and will be back soon to reveal 2 more projects. Please note that all of these projects above are made with 80% the kit contents and a few items from my stash or past Swirlydoos kits.
