April Reveal

April Kit reveal is finally here.  Jam packed with so many goodies you will be wanting to rip into and start creating.  If you go on over  to the  DT Gallery you will see a treasure trove of gorgeous inspirational layouts and other projects.  I have linked the gallery to the kit image.

This picture was taken by my mum whilst she was looking after my DD for the very first time. I stumbled across it in her album, scanned it and played around with some digital frames. I had printed this a couple of years ago and thought it went perfectly with the colours in the kit.

I love fussy cutting so cutting the trellis was just obvious for me and then raising it onto my page.  Also used the M Steward heart punch and created the layered heart.  The little bit of framing on the left hand side is actually the negative from the swirl in the kit, I used gesso and mist to colour it.  See nothing needs to be thrown away.

So as not to waste anything left overs a great to make cards, I used the Tim Holtz distress doily die cut and the banners are from my nestabilities die stash. The only frustration here was running the banner back through the die cut and then to emboss it.  But I love how it turned out.

Whilst we are still discussing scraps here is another page that I made out of my four pages I made in total.  Completey created from left overs.  I decided to go with the icy blue colour as it just looked beautiful against the white.  I have used an old stamp from one of my Autumn leaves ranges, stitched around the circle and used the Tim Holtz banner die, which I love.  I slightly misted the lace and popped and used another digital frame on my photo.  I also love the idea of using the cutout from our punches who thought that this technique would do the rounds.  I remember doing this way back in early 2003 and we only used it because their was no other products around to  its great to see these oldies become fashionable again.

This picture was taken of my DD whilst we were holiday at Easter with friends, their little girl is always climbing up on my DD wanting horse rides or just to be carried around.  I just love how much fun they have in each other company.

All supplies are from the April kit excluding paints, stamps and digital frames. Thanks for looking and I hope you get the opportunity to look on the Cést Magnifique site.
