Welcome to Swirlydoos' December Kit Reveal Blog Hop Block Party!!


If you came here from Lisa V's blog, then you are on the right track.  If not, go back to Swirlydoos' blog and start from there.  We have some amazing projects for you to see today !!  We have 3 manufacturers hopping and 3 designers from Webster's pages!!!  Also, as an extra special twist, 2 of our designers are hiding secret prize on their blog!!!!!  Make sure to leave a comment on all of the blogs for a chance to win!!!  Check out Swirlydoos on Facebook and Like Us!!!!

Take a look at the wonderful Believe kit:



This kit, like all of the others is amazing! It's been so great to work with it this month! "Believe" is certain to be perfect for all of your holiday projects. It features the newest, most elegant collections by Kaisercraft, and other classically gorgeous embellishments! You haven't subscribed to Swirlydoos yet, there just MIGHT be a few of the kits left in the store, but I doubt they will be there for long!

Believe Layout



I've been waiting all year to scrap this pic I took of my son last year! Good pics of him are few and far between! I jumped right into this kit to get it scrapped. I kept the design as basic as it gets for me because the picture is quite busy with color. I tried to pull out all of the colors and add splashes of red. The lace, alphas, and pearls are from my stash.


Magic Gift Boxes


I got the idea for these gift boxes from Leah Killian's blog, and she graciously allowed me to borrow her idea! I have adapted her design into a shorter box with room for a gift card and holiday treats, perfect for teachers, co-workers, and neighbors alike! They are SUPER easy to make and a blast to embellish! If you'd like to see how I made these boxes, along with the white snowflakes with casting resin and stamps, be sure to check out my video on YouTube. NOTE: it is long, because I am showing how to make the resin snowflakes, and giving you a list of things of what not to do with the products, so you don't waste yours like I did with a lot of mine. And, there are step by step instructions on how to make the box.

Here are close ups of the three gift boxes:
