Scrap-Friendzy "Seaside Cottage" Kit reveal

My name was drawn to be the DT to work with the Scrap-Freindzy June Kit "Seaside Cottage." Imagine my excitement when these lovely items arrived at my door:

So far, I've created two layouts and a card.

For my first layout I wanted to showcase some of the gorgeous features in the Bo Bunny Gabrielle paper by fussy cutting the butterflies and other elements. I added some stickles to the butterflies as well. Isn't this vintage lace absolutely gorgeous? The large brad was a perfect center for the daisy I created by punching and coloring some of my scraps from this project and the metal frame was a perfect accent for my journaling. 

All of the elements on this page are from the kit. I also used some things we all have laying around our scrap room: distress ink, chalk, stickles, glossy accents, thread, a scrap of white cardstock for the leaves around the flower and a couple punches.

Here are some close-ups:

The vintage lace on a background of distressed/inked/punched scraps:

I used a daisy punch for this flower then distress inked and chalked it up to get the right color to go with the tulips. I cut the leaves on my Gazelle and then inked them.  This gorgeous brad was included in the kit. I cut a circle from a paper scrap for the flower center, then applied glossy accents for a nice shine. The title block was cut from a scrap and I wrote out the title:

Here you can see some of the fussy cutting, distressing, and stitching around the photo:

We don't always have a lot of time to create a layout (OK, you know I always spend tons of time!) But for this next page, I wanted to show how this wonderful kit could be used to create a page in a snap. This layout took about an hour, and if you used sticker letters it would go even faster. Everything here is from the kit. I only added a little distress ink to the birds and photo mat edges. I oohed and awed over these lovely prima birds and flourish and the lovely flower ribbon!

I also created a graduation card from my scraps. I added the die cut/embossed/alcohol inked metal piece, butterfly stamp, and ribbon from my stash and a piece of Bo Bunny Almond Dot for the card base:

If you would like more details about the card, you can go to my grad card post.

I still have so much material to work with. I'll be sharing another layout or two as I get them done.

The "Seaside Cottage" kits are going fast so be sure to get yours soon before they are gone.

Thanks for stopping by! I enjoy reading your lovely comments.
