Happy Saturday!

Chances are, you have seen the new Prima Adhesive Rub Ons- they come in a lot of styles, and they are very versatile! Prima also sells foil sheets to go with them, but you can use a lot of other things too. Here's a project I made using foils, glitter and embossing powder with these amazing rub ons:

And, here's a quick video tutorial showing how easy it is to use the rub ons:

Hello, Swirly Girls!

While playing with the December kit of the month I decided to play around with Rae's chipboard technique. So instead of Perfect Pearls I used the dimensional paint that was included in our kit and I used the Mica Powders along with some embossing powders.

Here's one of the layouts with the chipboard pieces.


Here's a close up of the chipboard piece.


Visit Snapguide for the full tutorial.

This week our LOTW goes to Helena! Take a look at this beautiful layout using the October kit from last year:
I just love the large rips with the basket weave paper behind it! And, the soft white treatment of all that chipboard creates such an elegant feel to the page.
Congrats, Helena!

Hey Savages, Kim here. Today I am sharing a tutorial on how to make your own embellishments with molds. We have had a tutorial using hot glue and air dry clay, but this tutorial will show you how to use other mediums. 

When we were at CHA in January, we saw a lot of molds being demo. It appears the they are the "what's old is new" item. So let's dust off the molds and start playing. I have a video to show you a step by step. I will list below all the supplies I used.




Supply list:
Martha Stewart Silicone Molds (previous Swirlydoos project kit)
Mod Podge Silicone Molds (previous Swirlydoos project kit)
Stampendous embossing powder (red)
Ultra thick embossing enamel (clear)

Congratulations to Linda for this 30 minute beauty!
Yes, she created this splat-tabulous layout for the January Swirly Girl Challenge. Just goes to show you that you don't have to have hours of time to scrap. You can create in only 30 minutes as Linda did with this wonderful layout. I love all the splats of color, flowers, bling, and her fussy cut pieces.


Congrats, Linda!
Hey Savages, Kim here.
I can't tell you how much I love Swirlydoos kits! Every time I get one I say it's my favorite, January was no exception! I've made a couple more projects with it, and I'm sharing them today.

My first layout is of our goddaughter. She was dressed in all white and accents of purple for her Quinceanera. This picture went so well with the purples in the Royal Menagerie papers. I primed the chippie with gesso and then dry brushed some purple mica powder on it

There are lots of layers under the photo and I snuck into my flower stash for the purple flowers. The vine and white flower are from the kit as are the rest of the embellishments . I love how this turned out, it's uncomplicated, but not too simple for my taste.






Next up is a masculine layout I created using the 7 Dots papers. I created this for the & Dots monthly challenge Industrial is the theme. Did I get it right?

This is a photo of my dh on Halloween, we were dressed as Bonnie and Clyde, LOL.
I did a lot of masking and stamping for the background. I also used a lot of metals from my stash for this. I used a mold from a previous kit to make the clock embellishment.
.


I hope you have had as much fun creating with this kit and the add-ons as I did. It was such a fun kit to use.

Thanks for stopping by

Hello everyone! I'm here today to share with you my second reveal projects using the January Kit, Vineyard. And a tutorial as promised showing you how to make the cracked glass vellum butterflies.

Here is the butterfly and the layout I used it on from 1st reveal! You can find the tutorial on Snapguide. I hope you give it a try!

 


I really loved this kit because it has really bright papers. I decided to use a bright green with a lighter pink. I used some chipboard from the Dusty Attic Special Order. A perk for being a subscriber!


 For my next project I made a reverse canvas for a shadow box effect. I used a Dusty Attic piece for the inside and layering upward with a Prima resin piece. On top of that I used the Creative Embellishment Chippy to have focus on the Prima piece.

Hi everyone, here are two more layouts made with the amazing Swirlydoos Kit Clubs January Kit Vineyard. This kit is beautiful this month with tons of Prima and 7 Dots Studio Products.

Be Happy


I've always loved this photo, it's of my hubby and daughter taking a selfie when they were out one day. They both aren't looking at the camera and it always makes me smile :D

I've used the 7 Dots Thoughts Keeper paper for this layout, the background piece is No 1. Then I used No 3 and No 5 along with the dictionary velum to layer under my photo.


On the background I used the Prima doily stencil from the Mediums add on with modeling paste. I sprayed on some light teal mists to add a little colour. 
With the creative embellishments frame I first coated it with white gesso before I coloured it with Prima mica powder in teal


For embellishing I have used the Petaloo vintage velvet flowers in white and teal from the Flower add on kit as well as the Prima Royal Menagerie flowers. Plus I added a couple of white roses from my stash. I have also used the Prima Garden Fable butterflies and Metal trinkets. 


The title Be Happy is from the Prima Royal Menagerie wood icons and chipboard pieces from the Main kit. And to finish off I added some of the baby blue pearls and Prima sequins




Hello


I have used the Prima Royal Menagerie papers on this layout, the background piece is Saltwater. then I layered some pieces I cut from the Queen For A Day paper under my photo.

I mixed the Purple mica powder from the Medium add on kit with some modeling paste and used it through the Prima Doily stencil from the same add on kit. Then I flicked on some splatters using the Tim Holtz Splatter brush


I coloured  the Prima Archivist Casts with purple and pink mica to help them match my LO better, I also did the same to the Dusty Attic Flourish pieces.


To embellish I used pieces from the Royal Menagerie Chipboard and more pack and the wood icons. Plus loads of the Royal Menagerie flowers.


To finish off I added Lavender pearls and silver rhinestones.
