Presenting Autumn Rose!
When I saw this paper, I fell in LOVE with it. It's so perfect for sophisticated, feminine projects. I immediately knew I would scrap the pics from a photo shoot some of the Swirly Girls did at Swirly Camp this past summer. So far, I have two done, but plan to do more!
"Well Behaved Women Rarely Make History" Layout
This is my layout I made based on the sketch:
So, this is a pic of me and fellow Swirly Girl, Kim. It looks like we are up to no good, huh? Well, there was a little plaque that had the saying, "Well behaved women rarely make history" at the retreat, and I knew that just had to be the title of this layout! I used a faux stitching technique for the border. The butterflies are from Angelica's Etsy shop.
"True Beauty" Layout
The lovely lady in this pic is fellow Swirly Girl, Sherri. Sherri is a wonderful person inside and out. I treasure the time I get to spend with her at Swirly Camp! We had such a great time with our photo shoot, and this is one of my favorite pics taken that day!
I went flower crazy on this layout- I love the look of the flowers on the paper peeking out underneath the actual flower son the page because it creates such fantastic dimension. The vine, butterflies and pins are Angelica's Etsy shop.
Christmas Cards Project Add On
Getting your Christmas cards made early is wonderful, and this year, we decided it would nice to help you get a jump on them by offering a card add on in November. The card toppers from Hot off the Press are perfect for creating beautiful cards in a snap!
Here are a few I did:
And, just to show you how simple they are to make in minutes, here's a video that I made on how to make the cards above.
1: Visit all of the blogs and leave a comment on each. This way we know you were there. Become a follower if you're not already. Take your time. There are REALLY beautiful things to see along the way.
2: Before you leave each blog, look for the “special” words and write it down.
Once you have visited all the blogs and collected all the special words, they will create a sentence.
3: Finally, go back to the Swirlydoos blog and leave a comment letting us know how much fun you had, tell us the sentence that was created with all of the special words you collected. Can't wait to hear from you.
My special word is : OF
The party continues over at Heidi's blog. Have fun!
