The gorgeous My Creative Scrapbook September Limited Edition kit is on sale now, featuring the Rossi Belle collection from Prima Marketing Flowers, and I am thrilled to be guest designing once again this month.
Rossi Belle was not a "must have" collection for me based on what I had seen online, but let me tell you, this kit almost scrapped itself, and I am so happy to have the whole 12x12 paper pack in my hot little hands. I am 5 projects in and still going strong.
For this first layout I used the B side of 2 pages of the Lucky Charm paper, fussy cutting the brick accent used at the top right of my photo as well as the candy-stripped strips at the top and bottom of the layout from the second piece and adhering them to my background. From the A side of the 2nd piece I fussy cut the flowers and stripes used under my photo. I then added some stamping and flicks of mist - the Gold Lame mist from the kit as well as pink and rust mist and black paint from my stash to complete the background.
This picture was taken at Evan's cousin's wedding this Canada Day weekend (July 1st for those of you who aren't Canadian), which was just a couple weeks after our 21 year dating anniversary and 13 year wedding anniversary. I'm still so thankful to have this man in my life every day.
The Harper flowers from the kit (the lower flower above) have an amazing finish, that reminds me of 1980s lipstick, creamy and shiny. The chipboard tags are great for clusters and layering, and the trims for the kit make great accent pieces.
How fun are these bronze sequins? I confess, I used them a lot on this month's layouts, and I still have a lot of them left. To adhere them, I dipped a paintbrush in gel medium and dotted it onto the page, then placed the sequin on top. Once dry, those suckers are stuck on good.
One last closeup to show all of the layering on this layout - the fussy cut bricks, top, the stamping and splattering, the fussy cut flowers, sequins and paper flowers.
Stay tuned for more projects from this wonderful kit, and be sure to check out the My Creative Scrapbook store to pick up your kit if you haven't already.
