Swirlydoos Baby Book Tutorial Plus Indigo Dreams Kit Reveal

Hi everyone, by now you have all seen the gorgeous new kit Indigo Dreams from Swirlydoos and today I have the projects I made with this kit to share with you.

Baby Book


To start with I have a video tutorial on how I made a baby book from the Heidi Swapp Memory Files Folder in the main kit. I used the the Scrapberry paper Primavera and coordinating cardstock to make the inside pages plus a few embellishments from the embellishment add on kit.



Here is my video:



Project Kit - Carousel


This month I received the Project add on Kit and in it was this amazing Carousel. 
I had a lot of fun making this and it turned out better than I could have imagined.
A string of lights came with this kit which I installed inside the Carousel so it can turn into a pretty night light. 
The paper used was the Kaisercraft paper from the main kit, I used the flowers and pearls in the Project add on kit along with a few extra flowers, chipboard and butterflies from my stash. 








I Choose Happiness Layout


This is the layout I made for the Sketch Challenge this month. I used the papers, gems and doily from the main kit, flowers from the Flower add on, plus the Kaisercraft collectibles, Cork hearts, twine and wooden people from the Embellishment add on kit. I also added a few extra flowers from my stash.

#blessed Layout


My next layout was made for the All That Flutters Challenge with butterflies fussy cut from the Scrapberry paper in the main kit.
Also from the main kit I used the feather chipboard and 49 & Market flowers, then flowers from the flower add on, and from the Embellishment add on kit I used the adhesive pearls, twine and word stickers. The paper doily and extra flowers are from my stash. 






Mini Cards


Finally today I have the cards I used for this months card challenge. These were made using all the left over bits from the kit

Swirlydoos Project add on Kit Tutorial and February Kit Reveal

Hi everyone

For today's Swirlydoos Saturday tutorial I have a process video on how I made the Heart Shelf from the February Project add on Kit. This is a very fun kit and super easy to make. The black enamel paint and rhinestone trim from the kit inspired me to make this.


Here is my video tutorial:
There is a voice over on this video but for some reason it came out very quite, sorry for this.


And my close ups






Here are the other projects that I made with the February kit and haven't shared on the blog yet.

The Anatomy of a Layout which also comes with a video tutorial. 
This layout was made with material only from the main kit.

Swirlydoos Saturday Tutorial - Feb 25th Cards

Hi everyone.

For today's Swirlydoos Saturday tutorial I have 2 cards for you. I have started a monthly card challenge on the Swirlydoos forum, these are the cards I made for the March challenge. The theme of the challenge in March is Die Cutting. I have never been a huge user of dies, so I was great to dust off my die cutting machine.

Please enjoy the video tutorial on how I made these cards.
My apologies that there is no voice over for this video, unfortunately I have a bad cold and no voice.


HERE is my video:









Thanks for watching :)

Swirlydoos January Kit Reveal

Today is my day to reveal all the goodies I made with the Swirlydoos January Kit. 
This kit is amazing, and filled with beautiful blue papers from Lemoncrafts Gossamer Blue Collection.
I received the Main kit along with the Flower add on and Embellishment add on kits this month. These projects were made using these kits.

Cute


First up is the layout I made using the January sketch as inspiration.

My close ups


I used papers from the Lemoncraft Gossamer Blue collection along with the copper shimmer paper.


Love


My next layout was made with the Heidi Swap Invisibles paper from the Kit


I coloured the paper with teal and purple mists in order to bring out the beautiful invisible pattern underneath. 


I used the 49th & Market flower vine from the main kit to form a semi circle and placed this onto my photo then filled in the gaps with extra flowers.



Joy


This layout was mage with the American Crafts woodgrain textured cardstock as the background. I coloured the paper with some mist splatters. 


I used pale purple liquid pearls to colour the Creative Embellishments chipboard butterflies.




Cards


I used the scraps from the kit to make these cards.
I am currently running a card making challenge on the forum. Head HERE for the details. 






Delicate


Finally today I'm adding this layout which I had up on the Swirlydoos blog a couple of weeks ago which I made for my Saturday tutorial.

I've only just been able to load my video to You Tube due to computer troubles - so please enjoy this belated video. 

Here is the video
