Some More Swirlydoos

Just dropping off some more layouts from Decembers Swirlydoos kit. This first one I call "Angels Kisses"and it is a mixed media layout that I did using some of the Flowers, Chipboard and Stencils from the kit. I used the new spray from Smooch to create the blue and purple background. I also use a lot of Shimmerz glitter paints to create a ray effect coming down from the corner. The chipboard frame is painted with black acrylic and covered in the same glitter paint. I used some gesso over the stencil to get the white stamp effect and I applied pink acrylic paint for behind the photo. I just love the colors of this and that photo of Brooky is so sweet.
Aren't these little hearts adorable!! They are tiny cloth hearts that I found on Ebay awhile back. They went perfect with this layout because they symbolize the kisses.
Here is my "Christmas 2006" layout. I had this photo of us for the longest time and I have never scrapped it. I think it's because it's just your average everyday Christmas photo. I was actually a few months pregnant in this pic. I really love how this layout turned out. Most of the items are from the kit and add-ons. I did add my own Etsy pearls and some super cute metal objects I purchased off of Etsy.

I love the added pieces of chipboard in the kits. So pretty!! I didn't want to over do this dear so I just used some stickles on the edges of the antlers, hoofs, and tail.
I used some smooch paints on the poinsettia diecut. It was so pretty plain but I wanted just a touch of color and it turned out great. I put some gold stickles in the center.

Here is my layout that I couldn't figure out a title for. So I just used one of the stamps included in one of the add on kits that said Merry Christmas. This is a sweet little picture of Brooky just looking at her dress. I did a cut out of the paper to create this framed effect and roughed the edges up a bit. Basically the only thing I added was the large jewel, the green ribbon, and the red butterflies and leaves.
Here is a close up of the jewel work I did at the top. The easiest way to do this is use a stencil to create the swirls using a fine tip pencil. Then just lay the jewels over the line for a perfect swirls. These faux diamonds are also in my Etsy.
The extras on this layout are pretty simple. I used a lot of stickles and added one of my own butterflies.


  1. OHMYGOODNESS... such gorgeous layouts! I LOVE the last one! The little "merry christmas" does it all... this don't need a big title at all! It's subtile the way it is now... beautiful!

  2. so glad you showed a close up of the jewel work without seeing it IRL it gets missed but it is amazing example of your details
