DT work for My Creative Scrapbook - Limited Edition Kit

Hi there!
Here I am again....sharing my DT work at My Creative Scrapbook with the fabulous Limited Edition Kit.
I created 4 layouts and 2 cards with it and I enjoyed so much playing with all the yummy goodies always :-)))

I mixed two pattern papers here and I used Prima packaging for matting the photos. I used my Inverted Scallop Border to create the two borders.
I colored the Ziva Pearl Crystals with a red Copic Marker and I used two swirls to make the heart.
Love that photo of me and I thought it`s perfect for this pattern paper. I hand-stitched a lot here ;-)...
I made my own flowers....
Tip: photo edges were distressed with Gesso
This is my 3rd layout. I made my own die-cut paper and I punched the wholes along the edge...
Tip: photo edges were distressed with Gesso

And my last layout....Once again I hand-stitched a lot here. I wanted to match the pattern paper with my hand-stitched swirls.
 I hand-made the flowers here as well....
And my two cards....
Hope you enjoyed my work this month!
Thank you so much for taking the time to visit my blog!!! I do appreciate it a lot, really A LOT!!! Thank you!

DT work for My Creative Scrapbook - Main Kit

Hi there!
It`s already December. Can you believe it? Time surely flies! I actually can`t believe the year is almost gone...! I love December and I can`t wait fot Christmas... It`s always so cosy round this time of the year. Being with the family, at home and enjoying the best time of the year....oh, I really can`t wait.....
The December kits at My Creative Scrapbook are fillied with X-mas spirit this month. This is the Main Kit:
I created 4 pages and two cards with it but you can`t imagine how beautiful all the paper and embellies are....
Tip: Photo edges were distressed with Gesso
My second page....I hand-made the flowers here, water-distressed the paper and I hand-stitched as usually...
My 3rd layout....
....and the last page from the kit...
...and 2 cards....
As you`ve have noticed I`m not so talkative this time....I`m having a terrible cold and some coughing is "killing" me. I wish I had more time to stay at home and to recover....I wish I could actually stay in bed one whole, wishful thinking, I guess ;-)!!!
Take care!

Hi there!
I`m posting today my 3rd project for ScrapLounge where I`m Guest-designing this month.
I used the November Album Kit at My Creative Scrapbook. The Hanging lamp is an awesome Dusty Attic chippie (NB! Not incuded in the kit!)
I chose the polka-dots side of the pattern paper to work with (see photo below).
The first thing I did was to water-distress the pattern paper. After that I used different colors ink and I mixed two colors of Glimmer Mist paint. When eveything was dry I stamped this big heart with the swirls (Tattered Angels clear stamp). 
NB: I stamped once using two colors of acrylic paint (yellow and green) and I stamped second time using brown ink.
I did some hand-stitching as well...
 The butterflies are stamped and colored in with Copic Markers...
One more close-up.... The photo was b&w but I wanted to give it two colors. I used Distress Ink and a sponge to get this result. For the matting of the photo I used the same two colors as well!
I hope everbody`s enjoying the week!
Thank you so much for visiting my blog!!!! I appreciate it a lot!
