A couple more for good measure...

For those of you counting...that is 8 pages I did with this kit!
I'm still going crazy with my teal glimmer mist...but you could use paint too, or any kind of liquid ink really. I also cut up the bling and used it to accent the title which is stamped from a part of the Heidi Swapp corner stamp.

This layout is about missing my grandmother who just passed away this month. I plan on going back and adding some hidden journaling.

Since I broke the needle on my sewing maching on the previous layout, I did some hand stitching and I'm really glad I did. Also used some punches, like the bird punch and the scalloped border punch.

Another creation from the "Family Day Picnic"

This page has been in my head since I got this kit!
I was just now able to sit down and finish it yesterday.
I folded the flower over and stitched it on the sewing machine.

And I painted the bling and cut the circles in half to make it look more like a scallop. It ended up being a cool embelishment. I'm really loving painting on bling!

Normally I bring the potato salad...

But not to this picnic! Here are my pages...
On this page I cut out opening in the center of my patterned paper to form a frame and stitched some regular velumn to the backside for some added dimention and interest. Then I sewed the torn rectangle of patterned paper on top of that. It gave great interest to an otherwise flat layout.

Now for this layout and the next one, I got a little glimmer mist crazy but I love the results! I used the back of the diecut paper as a mask to make the design on the white cardstock.
Same here, I used the back of the diecut "Family" title piece as a mask and sprayed the glimmer mist right over it to make the design on the brown cardstock.
I also only inked the word "memories" on the Heidi Swapp stamp and used it as part of my title. Another way those stamps can go a long way! I even used my bling to the best of it's ability...I cut it up and used it as an eye for my little birdie!
Now these next two pages could be considered a two page layout if I did two page layouts! LOL!
For the title, I didn't have enough of the letters I wanted so I used the letters as a stencil for the word "Baby" and just outlined them then used the actual letters for the word Beach.
And it's hard to tell...but in the little scalloped design I cut out with a border punch, I put the little stones from the bling. I'll have to take a closer up picture for you for my next post. I have some more fun projects planned for this kit so check back later!

Hope you are having fun with your picnic!
