I cut some dark brown cardboard strips from my stash to embellish the vertical strips. The green border is cut from the kit papers and I used a border punch on it. I used some diecut leaves to complete the floral cluster.
I gave the white flowers that came in the flower add on a quick spritz with mists from the mediums add on. Underneath the floral cluster I have a Creative Embellishments chipboard piece, Flourish 19, that I have finished with Stampendous aged ivory embossing powder.
Next up is a layout featuring my husband's parents with their travel trailer. I just love this photo! I did a little masking with a stencil and paste from my stash. I used cardstock to border the papers and make them stand out. I took a Kaisercraft doily sticker and placed it over the kraft doily and placed behind the photo. Both doilies came in the main kit.
The two chipboard pieces I've used are Creative Embellishments (Swirly Border and Adventure Word Set) from my stash and I've used Lindy's embossing enamel on both of them in Midnight Gold. Yum what a lucious color!
All the flowers I used are from the flower add on except that one lone carnation which is from my stash.
I had a lot of fun with this last layout. First I created a tag and then I created the layout around the tag. The tag itself is made with papers and flowers from the kit and addons. The gold lace and ribbon is from my stash. The white seam binding ribbon is from the main kit. The little journal card on the tag is from my stash. I used a couple of Spellbinders dies to cut layers from the tag. One thing that came in the kit that I really loved was the wire trellis and you can just see that peeking out of the floral cluster on the tag.
The kit contained a great brown metal fence that I painted white for this layout. I used the Petaloo flowers from the flower add on and misted them with Lindy's Cape Cod Coral. All of the flowers on this layout are from the kit and flower add on.
Thanks so much for taking a peek at the Swirlydoos kit and my layouts! I appreciate it so much.
