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

Here are my projects!

First, my sketch page. This months sketch was so much fun to work with, I had tons of ideas and knew I had to do some layering of both papers and flowers :)

Here's the sketch:

Here's my page:

I used  some of the journaling cards to create a layered photo mat, and then layered lots of the amazing flowers from the floral add-on. I did some stamping in the background, using the beautiful stamp from the embellie add-on.

My next page is with a photo of my darling niece,Julia. 

Used one of the BFS papers as a background, and a piece of a Prima paper in the middle. Tied a string all around and then used it to "hold" some of the flowers and my photo. Amazing flowers in this kit and floral add-on!! 

I tucked the lace into the little Prima box, from the embellie add-on, and just let it peek out. 

My third layout is more mixed media and I had lots of fun creating this one!

I have some tips for you, on how I made some of the things on this page:

For my background I used one of the Prima papers. I painted it with white gesso, used a stencil and clear gesso, and then misted with pink mist. I have used paper pieces from the kit, plus leftovers from Prima flower packages (I always keep the nice ones, perfect for layering!). Before adding the last piece of paper and my photo, I glued the string of pearls. This way I got fantastic dimension and also some pearls peeking out later. The small pearl rows are from a previous kit.

The Prima flowers with baby heads didn't fit my page as a wanted to, so I decided to pull them apart. I folded the flower layers, got four of these, and tucked them under my papers. I put one flower on the side. I added the baby faces later in the process.

Some close-ups for you!

Did some painting and splattering with the pink mist after everything was glued into place. Added some bits and bobs from previous kits, as well as some flowers from my stash. 

Finally, I have two cards to show you!

For my first card, I cut out two of the beautiful dresses from one of the Prima papers. I then simply added a couple of flowers, two clothes pins (from a previous kit) and a wood piece.

For this card i used the beautiful fan chipboard piece. I painted it with white gesso and the clear gloss varnish.
