We have some absolutely beautiful scrapbook projects for you to see today !!  

Wowee! This kit is simply stunning! I adore the colors in it and I can't wait to make more things with it! This is what I've done so far:

"9" Layout (Based on the sketch)

For this layout, I picked one of my favorite pictures of my daughter when she was nine. It is base don the sketch, but I added a circle frame that I cut with my Cameo, and added some more layers. :)

I treated the Prima resin heart frame with some of the Inklingz in french twist from the mediums add on, and also some brown mist from my stash. I also used the stencil from the mediums add on in the top right corner and added some of the Inklingz.

In this close up, you can see the wood flourishes from the embellishment add on. I added some brown and green chalk inks to them. 

Christmas Card Holder 

I made this using the project add on. 

I used some extra berry clusters from my stash to complete this look.

Here's a closeup that showcases the bricks I made using a Prima stencil, puffy paint, and distress ink.

This is the inside. I kept it very simple because it's going to hold cards- I want as much room as possible in there!

I have a start to finish video of this project that you can see here:
