A Pretty Greeting Card with Sandi

Bo Bunny, The Garden KitTracie ShumanComment

Hey, hey! 

It's Sandi here today with a DT project using the Kisses and Snowflakes January Kit from The International Scrapbook Garden Kit. 

This is actually a little something that I created for my hubby for Valentines Day ... he's gotten kind of used to receiving flowers on his cards, lol.  Seriously, he has! 


I'm still experimenting with where to take photos here at my new house. It's a bit of a learning curve until I find the exact right spot. Bear with me.

I turned to the BoBunny papers located in the Bonus paper add-on and used Frosty and Nippy from Winter Playground collection. The cute solid teal banner on the left side is from the BoBunny sticker set.


I had fun embossing the large "Love" chipboard from Creative Embellishments and used some powders I had on hand. I love creating multi-colored chipboard pieces.  It was grounded on a paper doily and clustered with flowers and ephemera as well as pearls. 


The Petaloo blooms co-ordinate so perfectly. The Zella Teal ephemera from Prima was also an amazing match! 


Hope you can see the banner tucked in there! 


Another ephemera banner from Prima. And lastly, I dabbed everything with some white acrylic paint .. a little bolder than just gesso.

BoBunny Winter Playground Frosty
BoBunny Winter Playground Nippy

Prima Color Philosophy Poison Love
Aleene's Glitter Snow

That's it for today.

Hello everyone !

I am here to share today another layout with January's Kisses and Snowflakes kit.  

I almost always start off with Clear Gesso on the surface because I never know at the beginning where I am going to put everything and what Medium I am going to use.  Here are a couple of shots on how I started my layout. I am in love with this Stencil from Prima (Vintage Emporium 6x6) !


I used 2 different stamps from  Kaisercraft PS I Love You with 2 different Ingvild Bolme Chalk Colors.

The Garden Kit, Bo BunnyTracie ShumanComment

Happy Wednesday! It's Laurie again. Here's another fun layout I made using The International Scrapbook Garden Kisses and Snowflakes kit. I had a picture of my daughter looking warily at the snow back in December, and I just knew that I wanted to incorporate some of that Aleene's Glitter Snow onto a layout with it, so that's what I did!

For this one, I used the BoBunny Winter Playground Forest and Fun papers. I just loved the slate pattern for the background because it mimicked the exterior of our house and our front walk so well.


I cut the other patterned paper into not quite half and separated it on the page so that I had two distinct sides. One side had my picture, and the other side was just going to be embellishments. It's amazing how much strategy goes into trying to make embellishments look lighthearted and as if they just happened to fall into place willy-nilly. Geesh!


I really loved how the teal and silver of the Prima Zella Teal Butterfly Kisses flowers and the Prima Zella Teal word stickers fit so well with the BoBunny papers, but I also used some of the BoBunny Winter Playground sticker tags, too.


And I covered the Creative Embellishments Falling Snow set in the Nuvo Embellishments Mousse Lilac Lavender, which gave it a nice silvery purple sheen, and that fit really well with all of the silver and teal on this layout.


I thought about doing something with the Creative Embellishments chipboard words that I used for my title (a combination of one of the Blizzard Word Set and Love Day), but I decided to leave them as they were so that they would easily be read.


You'll see in the close-ups that there are hints of the Aleene's Glitter Snow here and there. I also tried to paint it on some of the swirls that were in the patterned paper. I think it shows up pretty well on the paper and ends up giving the swirls some nice texture.
