'Fabulous' for Scraps of Elegance with July kit.

Are you ready for another page with the July kit from Scraps of Elegance?
 (If you scroll down two posts you can see the kit and everything in it.)

As always Melinda managed to find the perfect ingredients for making many lovely pages. 
All the supplies are so easily matched.


I am actually quite happy with this page, I am just not happy with how it photographed. 
I tried several times but the gesso will stand out too much and disturb the balance of the layout. 
Well, nothing to be done about that....

This is quite a nice shot of my eldest. 
She recently came home from spending a year at Cornell university  in the US and was actually invited to China for a few days just to sing at an event there. 
No doubt in her mind about going, although it was coinciding with exams. 
She talked to her teachers and the trip was arranged. 
She was very well received and really enjoyed being star for a day!
She was repeatedly told she was the most important person there and had three people 
constantly at her beck and call. This shot was taken around midnight when she arrived back in her room  after a long day that started already at 8 o'clock in the morning.


I just adore thes gorgeous large flowers. Both the teal and the pink one are from Petaloo.


The kit also contains some wooden embellishments from Prima Marketing and some cool word/title stickers from Heidi Swapp. The pink wing is made with one of the new dies from Sizzix/Prima.These dies are part of the Flora Grande collection. You can look up all the Flora Grande dies HERE!


I cut out the heart shape and layered it on a slightly larger heart that I cut with scalloped scissors. 
I backed it with some cheese cloth.


That's all for today! I hope you enjoyed my page and please check out the kits at Scraps of Elegance if you are on the lookout for something really special!

Frameworks Trellies with Tattered Florals and Leaves for a shabby page.

Time again for my weekly post on the Sizzix blog. 
It came up fast this week as I was late in posting the previous one because I was over in the UK meeting the nice people at Sizzix UK. 
As I already promised I will share a few pictures from my trip etc in a couple of days. 
I just have so much catching up to do.... :-)

Here is the usual sneak. I must say I actually quite like this page!

Thanks for looking and for any comments you may leave me over there!


My project with the new Sizzix/Prima butterfly dies

Sorry to have been missing in action lately. I have been away on a proper little 'adventure'. 
I spent almost four days over in delightful Wales visiting with my new fiends at Sizzix Europe. 
I will tell you a little more about that visit in a day or two but first I want to share what 
I made for my previous post on the Sizzix UK blog.


Please follow the link underneath the picture to see this weeks full reveal.
I would love a comment from you over there! :-D


I used Prima 'Tea Thyme' and 'Delight' collections and I hope you like it.

Hugs!
