More Projects with the June Swirlydoos Kit to Share

Well, I had so much fun playing with this kit! Here are the rest of the projects that I came up with this month using the fabulous Brass Shilling kit:

Handsome Layout

I had the pleasure of doing the Round Robin Challenge this month, following LaQuette, Kim, and Christy, and this is my take on their fabulous creations!

 "Follow Your Dreams" Card

Again this is for another challenge at Swirlydoos: Round Robin for Cards! This is my take on Steph's card this month:

Untitled Layout:
This is a silly picture of my grandma when she was a teenager. The quality of the photo is not that great, so I thought I would add to the poor lighting and add one of the Crate Paper transparency frames, however, it makes the layout difficult to photograph!

Live Laugh Love Wall Hanging

So this is my take on the sketch this month! Kind of different, as it isn't a layout, but it works.

Thanks for looking!

More May Projects

Well, I just didn't get a lot of time to do any blogging this month, but I wanted to share some projects that I made this month:

"Art" Idea Book

Here's an idea book I made using the April Swirlydoos kit:

And here's a start-to-finish video: Idea Book Tutorial

Next, I have a couple of other projects that I made with the Swirlydoos May kit:

"Me" Layout

 This layout is also my last DT assignment for Flourish with a Bling. It was a great experience, and I was thankful to Maggie, Kate, and Lucy for the amazing opportunity!

Au Naturale Altered Bottles

I made these with some leftover things from the May kit, and some gesso, crackle paint, and mists. You can see the  Altered Bottle Tutorial here.

Here's a layout that I made form y team this month. I had the honor of following fellow subscribers Patty and Manda. 

 And, this is a card I made based on Peggy's fabulous card.
