We are pleased to share our October Collection:
Sweetest Thing
Isn't this one BEAUTIFUL kit?.... It was a dream to work with. We all LOVED it.
Don't wait and grab yours while they are still in the Swirlydoos Store.
Today I'll only post, the main picture and 1 close up picture of each project.
Later this week I'll post more detailed pictures and tell a little more on the how to's.
Otherwise this would be a very long post and I know that you have got some blogs ahead of you.
Every month, Beggahuna draws up a sketch that goes with the kit, and this month she created this beauty:
And here's my take on it:
Enjoying Summer
Don't you just LOVE that beautiful coral colored Prima Serenity flower??
There's a full package of these beauties in the Main-kit as well as some lovely, Blue Fern chipboard birdcages.
The Prima wood frames came from last month's kit,
(that is how much products you get in these Swirlydoos kits, you always have something left.)
This page needs a little explaining and credit giving!
We are waiting on the arrival of our first grandchild. He should have been here by now, but I guess he still likes it too much, inside his mommy. Anyway... I planned out this page, being SURE I could snap some beautiful baby fresh pictures.
So, I had to select some from the internet and found this beautiful picture posted by a man, named Josef Essberger. As soon as my DGS is born I'll replace this picture with his.
My next page I call for now:
Little toes
 Again this is a borrowed picture and it is by: I just loved it.
As soon as my DGS is born I'll add his picture and name to this page.
I love these beautiful Prima Serenity flowers that came in the Main-kit and the papers.... they are so gorgeous.
They can be used for any project. Here are some cards I made:
The Main-kit this month is a real fussy cutter dream. Lots of darling images and I couldn't resist cutting them out.
 These little, Blue Fern birdcages are so cute and versatile. You can leave them blanc, spritz them to give them a little shimmer, (like I did here) or paint them, stamp them.... etc.etc.
On this one I used the Prima packaging for the base. With a little lace and a gorgeous Serenity flower, you can create such elegant cards.
So that's it from me so far. Check back later this week, for more details.
Goed nieuws voor alle Nederlandse scrappers/ kaarten makers.....
