"Birthday Girl" - Swirlydoos and Blue Fern Studios

Oops, I almost forgot to enter this layout in the Blue Fern Studios November Sketch Challenge. I created this layout for the Swirlydoos November Round Robin Challenge approximately three weeks ago for round 1. For the Swirlydoos challenge, we were required to use a photo that had food included. So for this challenge, I was inspired by the blue fern studios sketch and the chippy used for my daughter first birthday photo. 

For this layout, I used an older BoBunny Swirlydoos kit that had the Gabrielle papers and combined it with the October kit which included the BoBunny The Avenues papers. I altered the chipboard with aged teal stampendous enamel.

Papers: BoBunny Gabrielle and The Avenues
Flowers: Petaloo
Chipboard : Blue Fern Studios
Mixed Media: Shimmerz Teal Me No Lies, Tattered Angels Vintage Pink,
Tools: Crafters Workshop, Martha Stewart,

Happy Birthday - Swirlydoos

Hi Everyone,

Here is a card that I am finally able to post that was created for my mom's birthday. It was also submitted for the Swirlydoos Card Round Robin for September. This card was also sent with a writing desk that I altered and I added homemade notecards, blank cards, and a couple store bought items I know that she would use... or at least set out as decoration. LOL.

For this card, I went to an very old Swirlydoos kit that contained the Prima Almanac paper line. I love this line alot. In a future post, I will show a few pictures of the homemade note cards in her writing desk.

Just for you - Swirlydoos

Hi Everyone,

Here is a card I created for last months October Card RR for Swirlydoos Kit Club. I had a wonderful team of Swirlygirls creations to lift for this card. We were required to make at least one homemade card and an embellishment. So I made my own ribbon flower with lace trim. For my homemade embellishment requirement I created a pin thats attached to the flower. This card has more sparkles than I can capture on the photo due to the fairy dust glitter on the dusty attic chipboard frame. For this card, I used the October Swirlydoos kit which inclued the Bo Bunny "The Avenues" paper line.

Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog.

Swirlydoos Nov Cards RR

Today, I am posting a creation I made for the first round of the CARDS Round Robin Challenge at the Swirlydoos Kit Club. This card is for Team 4 and I am very excited to see how my card will be lifted for the next 2 weeks. For this card, I used an older Swirlydoos kit called Brass Shilling which contained the Kaisercraft 75 Cents paper line. I also used a new product that I am falling in love with... the Shimmerz Tezturez in Patina.  For the twist, we had to add something metallic so I added the gold metallic ribbon.
