4 new Swirlydoos (and Dusty Attic) projects!

I am back from holidays and ready to reveal some creations made with the amazing August "Passion Berry" Swirlydoos kit and some fabulous Dusty Attic chipboard too! This kit is so "pinkalicious" gorgeous and features beautiful IOD "Cotswald Manor" papers - love it!

Up first is my daughter eating her very first jelly filled donut. In addition to the glorious main kit and flower add-on I have also used a DA chipboard lace border and painted it with the Silks glaze in the kit, topped randomly with brown ink to darken it.

This layout started off with the August Swirlydoos sketch but then took on a life of its own as I was creating it, LOL. Don't forget to enter the monthly challenge! It is open to anyone (you don't even need to be a kit subscriber!)

Next is a boy layout of my sons when they were younger enjoying a summer treat. I used a Lucky 8 punch for the border. I added a small left over piece of DA cherry blossom chipboard on here (primed and inked) and tucked a few DA mini roses among the pretty Kaisercraft ones in the kit. Don't you love that cute little white fence from the kit too?

I used this month's Dusty Attic sketch as inspiration. Don't forget to enter the DA monthly challenge!

Another layout of my cutie as a baby - don't mind the dirty camping dishes in the pic, LOL. These were  my favourite papers and flowers this month. I added a DA corner scroll and finished it with the Silks glaze in the kit, topped with red ink. I ADORE those pretty wooden doors in the kit too!

OK, so when my daughter (5 years old) saw all the pretty pink in this kit... she begged me to make her something. I used some left over trim and a flower to alter a headband from the dollar store. Easy to make and a nice result (and a happy child :)
