I Met Sam

Happy St. Patrick's Day from Laurie! I have never met any leprechauns, but I have met a hobbit (Sean Astin, aka Sam from The Lord of the Rings). That's the theme of today's scrapbook layout featuring the Kisses and Snowflakes kit.


I liked how the pink background in the photo matched so well with some of the pink in the 7 Dots Northern Lights collection, so that's primarily the papers and embellishments that I used on this. 


But I did add in some of the Prima Zella Teal ephemeraScrapberry's Exquisite Embellishments Create WonderPrima Sunrise Sunset Paper Petals Silver Blue flowersUS Art Quest Prills in Plum Crazy, and Dovecraft Adhesive Gems Perfectly Pink. Then I splattered a little bit of the Shimmerz Vibez Grape Escape. I LOVE that color.


I had a lot of fun creating the cluster of embellishments underneath the photo. It gives the layout a lot of texture and dimension. But it does take forever to strategically lay everything out and make it look like all these embellishments just effortlessly fell there or something!


The next season's kits are in the works (the design team has gotten to see sneak peeks of the papers already), but in the meantime, you can still get your own Kisses and Snowflakes kit, so head on over to the store 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.

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 !
