Swirlydoos March kit - Butterfly Whispers - Reveal!!!

YAY!!! It is reveal day of the gorgeous new Swirlydoos March kit - Butterfly Whispers!!!! It is jampacked with the newest Prima goodies!! What a joy to work with. Here are my contributions:

This LO is based on the amazing Beggahuna sketch, also provided in the kit.

Picture of Nike as a teen. I put some gold acrylic paint on burgundy velvet paper, used some of the gold paper from the project kit and added some other golden thingies from my stash.

Wedding day picture of my mom and dad. The gorgeous papers and embellies are just perfect for wedding pictures.

Here is another one. It is difficult to see, but I used  brown velvet paper as the background. The picture was not taken in Paris, but at the Universal Studios.

Another picture taken at Universal Studios. I used GabrielleP's ruffled edge technique.

Picture of my nephew and his girlfriend. The brown background paper is from the project kit, the mesh is from a previous kit and the mesh roses (Prima) are from my stash. The heart I made from embossed pink metal.

This is done with the amazing project/technique kit of this month. The mosaic frame is so much fun to make!

I still have papers and embellies left over for one or two more LO's, cards or other projects. Will post these when ready.

Thanks for looking. Enjoy your Sunday

Catching up

I'm a bit behind with posting my LO's on my blog, so here is what I did the last couple of days:

This is my entry for the Round Robin Challenge on the Swirlydoos forum. This was also a personal challenge for me, because I set myself a goal to make a LO with all the junk on my desk :D

This LO is made with a lot of old stash. The photo was taken during our visit to Universal Studios in October last year.

Another LO made with my old stash. Photo of DH and me on our wedding day.

This one is made with the gorgeous Jenni Bowlin papers. It is based on a sketch from Irene Tan.

OK, all caught up. Thanks for visiting my blog!!!

New TSS Molds!!!

Yesterday the new TSS molds came in. They are soooo cool!!! Just had to play with them. I also made my own background paper. The photo is of my dad. He passed away 25 years ago, but I still miss him.

For the background paper I masked, inked, stamped and misted a piece of white cardstock. Then I cut a piece of 4.5" x 8" aluminum and embossed it with the new Kabuka #7 and then colored it with alcohol ink and paint dabber. For the horizontal strip I cut a piece of 2" x 12" aluminum and embossed it with the new Big Daddy Mold #7, painted and sanded it. The little rectangular piece is done with Kabuka #8 and alcohol ink. I embellished the LO with lots of T!m goodies and old watch parts.

"Prima" Bottles

Last week I saw these gorgeous decorated bottles at the Prima booth at CHA. I just had to try that too. Of course I didn't have the new Prima blingies and flowers yet, but with some "old" stuff it turned out just as pretty. You can use just any bottle you have (The pink one with the crown I bought at M's, the blue one I had in my cupboard for age, and the white one is an empty olive oil bottle). I painted these first with paint dabber (I didn't paint the pink bottle), then put on some bling, flowers and lace on it, and presto! Ready in less than half an hour!
Thanks for reading my blog!

17 Camels

A few years ago I was working in the Middle East. One weekend DH came to visit me and we drove to a camel market in Al Ain. The merchant offered DH 17 camels to trade for me LOL. Don't know if that was a good deal, or not, but luckily for me DH doesn't like animals, so he kept me. I did some masking, stamping and misting on this layout. TFL

Sister Love

My sister and me on her wedding day. The LO is based on Suepup's sketch 012520 (link: Thanks Char for the inspiration! The hearts were painted with crackle paint, then inked with distress ink and then some distress stickles. When it was finished I felt that it was still to bold on the LO, so I glued some ribbon on the big heart and wrapped some pearled wire around the smaller heart. TFL
