'Sisters' using Scraps of Elegance July kit.

Time to share another one of my pages for Scraps of Elegance with the July kit. 
This kit is called 'Chasing Rabbits' and among other things it has papers from Marion Smith Designs (that I use here) and Webster's Pages. Flowers are from Prima, Petaloo, etc. 
Apart from these items there are lots of other goodies as well!

 I used many of the items in the kit as they are. But for example with the Kaiserkraft stickers I decided to cut pieces off and tuck them in here and there to fill up my clusters. There were some Prima flowers ( Something Blue collection, Save the Date flowers) in the kit that had banners with a word on and I decided to use only the banner on this page and save the flowers for later.

 The little clock you see tucked in between the flowers is from the sticker sheet. I also used some naural twine to soften up the flower clusters and add a little more dimension.

As on many of my other pages I used the Tattered Florals die by Sizzix to make some flowers from matching papers in the collection. I love that look! That die is just so versatile! 
If you look for tutorials you'll se SOOO many different styles created with just this die!

 The double butterfly was made with one of the new dies from the Flora Grande collection. 
This is a collaboration between Sizzix  and Prima Marketing. 
The butterflies are called Winged Beauties and come with four dies in the set. They are really very dainty and pretty and I love that each is just a little bit different apart from the different sizes.

As you can see the kit and add ons offer great value for money, but they sell out really fast so if you would like one I recommend that you sign up before the next one is revealed.

That's all from me today. Thanks for taking the time to visit!

Did you see the lovely new flowers from Papirdesign yet?

Aren't these gorgeous?
As you may know the Norwegian manufacturer Papirdesign has a very extensive collection of mullberry flowers in many pretty colours..   

....and NOW the collection just became HUGE! 

Line has added 75 new choises for us as if it wasn't difficult enough to choose already :-D

Here are some close ups of some of my faves:

I received a large variety of these in the mail the other day and I can't wait to start using them. 
I will be back soon with a project to showcase some of them!

'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!
