Oh my word, this kit is amazing! The rich colors are so beautiful and elegant! I'm having so much fun making things with the Salutations kit. Here's what I've made so far:

Imagine Layout



This is my take on the March sketch. The stenciling is done with the contents from the "mediums add on." I used part of the stencil and the new stone effects from Art Anthology. It was a little too light for this design, so I touched it up with some black chalk ink, and I love the variation it gave. 

The rings behind the picture are cut from a Memory Box die, available in the Swirlydoos Boutique HERE.

This picture is so funny to me! This is my youngest, and he is VERY imaginative. He keeps me laughing all day long with his observations, inferences, and imagination. Here, he is in his apple rocketship. It was JUST "MY rocketship," but when he swiped an apple from the counter and climbed back in, it became "MY apple rocketship!" 

Don't forget, anyone can enter our sketch challenge. All of the details are on the Swirlydoos blog.

Memory Lane Photo Carousel

The project add on this month is MIND BLOWING! It features an off the page project that you will definitely love. It was perfect to pair with the Prima Stationer's Desk papers from the main kit. I had a blast making this, and plan to give it to a friend as a wedding gift.










I have a video tutorial for this project that has two parts: assembling and a description of how I decorated this project:


I hope you liked my projects, and I really hope you are getting the March kit collection!
