Hello !

Today I am sharing another layout with January kit Kisses and Snowflakes.

I started off with Clear Gesso on the surface.  Used the stencil with the Nuvo Mousse on top right corner to left down corner.  Then I stamped different pieces with Blossom Bud Chalk.  I added splashes of Shimmerz Spray, once everything was dry,  I started layering the tags and pieces of papers, Chipboards and all the embellishments.

7 Dots, The Garden KitTracie ShumanComment

Hello everyone !

This is my very first reveal as a DT Member for Garden Kits ! I am thrilled to be part of such an incredible Team !  I had so much fun playing with January Kit.  It is filled with beautiful products. See below what you can get in the kit.

Kisses and Snowflakes

I first chose the paper Northern Lights by 7DotsStudio.  I started off by applying Clear Gesso on all the surface to prep for Mediums.  I used the Nuvo Mousse (Lilac Lavender) with the Prima Stencil Vintage Emporium on the background. I used both stamp kits : Prima  (included) and in the Bonus kit  .  The Snip Art Frame, the Snow Title and Snowflake Chipboard are in the Chipboard Bonus kit.  

Mediums used :
Prima Chalk (Island Lagoon, Attic Dust and Blossom Bud)
Shimmerz Spray (Grape Escape)
Prima Color Philosophy (Poison Love)
Glitter Snow

The kit also is filled with Embellishments like flowers, Ephemeras, Stickers, laces, Prills etc.


Here are some close-ups :


I hope you liked it !! See you soon !


No Hat

Happy last day of January! It's Laurie, and I have a wintry-themed layout to share with you using the Kisses and Snowflakes kit. This is one of my daughter all bundled up in her pink coat, pink gloves, and fluffy pink hat. The hat she hates to wear, hence the title.


The background paper design is based off of a layout I had seen scrapbooker Lina Monaco do. I just liked the way things were sort of off center, and that is so different for me, so I thought I'd give it a shot. The base paper is 7 Dots Studio Northern Lights Knitted and the front paper is 13@rts Art Journey Dream. I outlined the Dream paper with the May Arts White Metallic Nylon String Ribbon.

The photo is actually backed with the 7 Dots Board Games paper and some scraps from the 13@rts Travel paper, which I inked with the Prima Ingvild Bolme Chalk Ink Attic Dust so it would stand out more against the whiteness of the Dream paper. Some of the 7 Dots Northern Lights Tags are layered behind the photo.


For the embellishments, I covered some of the Kaisercraft Lucky Dip Wooden Snowflakes in the Nuvo Embellishment Mousse Lilac Lavender from the bonus mixed media kit. That was so cool to work with!

And I added the Darice Finishing Accents Silver Snowflake Brads to the Prima Sunrise Sunset Paper Petal Silver Blue flowers from the bonus blooms kit.


Surprisingly, some of the Prima Zella Teal Ephemera pieces fit right in with the purple and silver color scheme of this layout, and then I also added in a few of the 7 Dots Northern Lights Word Stickers that I felt described the picture. And actually, one of the 7 Dots Northern Lights Stickers was the perfect spot for me to do my journaling.

You can also see that I sprinkled a few of the stick-on gems here and there. And I splattered a bit of the Shimmerz Vibez Grape Escape, which also came in the bonus mixed media kit. That color is GORGEOUS!


I was originally going to use some of the Creative Embellishments chipboard for my title, but I had sort of a mixed media fail with that, so I found some minty chipboard alphas in my stash that fit right in and luckily I had enough letters to spell what I needed.

I surrounded the letters with some of the 7 Dots Northern Lights Die Cut Elements and then, because this is all about bundling up to go outside in the snow, some of that awesome Aleene's Glitter Snow. How cool is that???

There are so many cool elements to work with in the main kit and all of the bonus kits. I hope you were inspired today to get out and get creating! Don't forget to visit the shop to pick up your own Kisses and Snowflakes kits today!

Thanks for looking!
