February's Gorgeous Kit's are here from My Creative Scrapbook!!!!

You are going to fall in love this month with the beautiful kits at My Creative Scrapbook!!! Talk about 'drool-worthy' goodies!! this kit is packed!! Gorgeous papers by MLYB called Love Letters!! with lovely flocked alpha's and chipboard pieces, sticker sets, Prima blooms and bling! and more!! Here are a couple of layouts I made using this wonderful kit (everything on these pages (except for the glitter glue is in these kits!!).....


I used the 'threading water' punch by Fiskars to create the edge that I made so I can lace up with the sheer wine colour ribbon. Here are some close ups....





This is a second layout I made using My Creative Scrapbooks main kit for February.....

This was a quick and easy page! No special handcutting, the long flowing bloom is a sticker included in the kit, I just used pop-dots to make it stand off the page and give the l/o a more 3D effect. The heart design and the flocked design are all pieces in this kit too along with a full pack of Prima blooms!.....here are some close-ups....



And if these are not enough pretties to keep you busy this month, there is also a beautiful Creative kit available.....a lovely collection of Fancy Pants papers and die cuts, chipboard, ribbons, black cut paper flourishes, rub-ons, blooms and bling (black crystals by Zva Creative!) Here is a page I made up using this pretty kit (can you tell I've had enought of winter? LOL!).....


For this one I again did a fair bit of paper tearing and used a second piece of patterned paper peeking out from underneath. The butterfly is a die-cut from the Fancy Pants die-cut sheet, I simply folded the wings up slightly and gave them a little curl between my fingers and attached by the body to the page, I lightly inked the edges of the butterfly to make it stand out better from the background paper. Here are some close-ups.....





This is a second layout I made using the same kit, .....there is such a fun variety in this kit you can put together so many different 'looks'. This page is about my sweet niece Alicja.....


I used an edging punch by Fiskars to make the scalloped edge on the light blue outside paper and used a little bit of blue chalk ink by Colorbox and some chestnut chalk ink on the edges. The top 12" black flourish is another beautiful design element included in the kit. I cut up the black Zva crystals in the kit to make the 'vine' and used a punch on some of the cream paper (the back-side of the blue flourishy paper) to make the little blooms. I made the large bloom by cutting a 6 petal bloom from left over of the black 'lace' paper (I used the empty flower spot from the die cut sheet as a template), then cutting a smaller daisy shape from the cream paper and used a punch for the small bloom. I inked the edges with brown and blue chalk ink and used some blue Stickles on the paper petals for dimension. Here are some close ups....



And Finally there is a wonderful Limited Edition kit this month......if you love pink and black, this one is for you!! Some really pretty Theresa Collin's papers, chipboard accents, a large sheer houndstooth design fancy edge vinyl piece that will really get your creativity going!...plus lots of fun embellies. Here is a layout I made using this kit......



To make this page I tore the edges of a couple of pieces of the patterned paper and then layered them. I mounted them over the houndstooth vinyl piece (but I cut a section of the middle of the vinyl piece out first for other uses. From the extra piece of sheer and black vinyl I cut a butterfly shape and mounted it by the body with with wings folded up, to the page using 2 sided sticky tape.) There are plenty of fun chipboard 'button' accents and pretty journaling pieces in this kit too, so you can get creative with your embellishments!.....here are some close-ups....


This is a second page I made with this pretty Special Edition kit......



The scallop circle was part of a printed design piece in the kit that I cut out. I added some pink dots with Stickles to the scallops. I made the pink flourishes using some pink dimensional paint. (for instructions on how to make the flourish pattern see my earlier blog posting for "barefoot sandals") or you can find the instructions at My Creative Scrapbook in the tips and techniques section http://mycreativescrapbook.invisionzone.com/index.php?showtopic=500 I gave a little tutorial on this when I used this technique a few months ago. Here are some close-up pic's.....
