Scrap That! Exclusive Pion Design “Birdsong” Kit

As I mentioned a few days ago, I was thrilled to be asked to be Guest Designer this month over at Scrap That! Kit club for their exclusive September Pion Design "Birdsong Kit"!!
If you have just arrived here from The Dusty Attic Ning site you are in the correct place! If not, head back to the Scrap That! blog for the blog hop order and links, the hop begins at noon EST. (this will start you at the beginning and will help you with the secret words you'll need to collect)

First off before I give you all the blog hop deets I thought I'd share a few of the projects I made with the GORGEOUS kit!!  First off I was so excited to get this beautiful kit from a Canadian kit company!  Lori Brown (the owner) has AMAZING taste in product, it was such a pleaure working with all the lovely things in this kit....elegant papers by Pion Designs, LOADS of Prima blooms and embellishments (lovely pearl/rhinstone flourish too!)  And I love that she always includes a creative medium in her kits, this month, there is a 3D pearl paint.  The above layout is one I made of Chloe with our pup Zoe, this is a very recent photo, she has gotten HUGE in the past few weeks (and she's still only about 4 months old!)  ...The butterflies were cut from one of the papers, the frame is actually part of the paper design.  I simply added some of the blooms in the kit, a little lace (also from the kit), a little corset stitching...done! (note: the diamond design is one you've seen a few times before on my layouts, it's a small stamp by Prima) Here are a few close-ups...


I just LOVE that Prima branch in the kit! ....so much so, that I thought I would try an imitate it in the next layout.  I had some loose blooms from an old floral arrangement that I mixed with some wiring and leaves, it's not exactly the same but I was happy with it.....
This was kind of a 'tongue in cheek' joke at getting older...."I'm not 40 Something, I'm 39.95 plus shipping & handling"  :)    I used a Dusty Attic scroll piece (top right corner) and a couple of pieces of the DA chicken wire (love this stuff!)  here are a few close-ups of this page (the finish I gave the chippie is the same as the one I used on the layout below, I shared a tutorial on how I did this at the ScrapThat! blog)....


....And the last page I made using this beautiful kit was one I made about Chloe and her wish for a shabby-chic bedroom.  She has been collection these photos on Pinterest to show me what she likes and this is one of them, her Dream Closet.


I just love those pretty white fabric blooms by Prima (also in the kit), they have such a wonderful vintage look IRL.   The Dusty Attic Music Notes chipboard is included in this kit, as are those pretty pearl/rhinstone flourishes!  For a little tutorial on how to do the shabby-chic finish on the chipboard, you can find it at the Scrapthat blog today!

So those are my projects (and I still have plenty more goodies to work with from this kit...just need some extra time....can anyone spare some? lol!)   Okay, now for the blog hop deets (I've copied and pasted the details, so you may have read this at the other blogs aleady)....
