The May kit with Karita

Hello!
Karita here and today is my turn to share few layouts made with the gorgeous May kit and Pion Design papers. 

Here´s my first layout, very girly one. I used lots of flowers, embellishments and Stampendous embossing enamel, which is shabby pink - so perfect.
For this layout I have used the main kit, the embellishment add-on, the flower add-on and the MMM kit.
From my stash: gesso, twine, punch

My second layout with torn papers and layers. I like these colours very much, although yellow isn´t my favourite colours, but in this layout, it looks great.
For this layout I have used the main kit, the flower add-on, the embellishment add-on and the MMM kit.
From my stash: gesso, mist, doily die, paper doily

Thank you for visiting here today!

The May kit with Camilla

Hi everyone! I have some layouts to share - some sneaks of the upcoming May kit. I am sure you are going to looooove the kit. I did.

First a baby layout. As you can see I have gathered some of the flowers in the main kit and the add-on. The title is one of the chipboards in the embellie add-on. So simple, yet so beautiful.


For my layout I have used the main kit, the flower add-on and the embellie add-on.
From my stash: doily, dies

Here I have used some misting, masking and stamping on the background paper. The papers are layered to create motion from top to bottom and from left to right.


For my layout I have used the main kit, the flower add-on, the MMM kit and the embellie add-on.
From my stash: texture paste, dies, stamp, mask, border punch, old book pages

This is a layout with my flower girl. She is surrounded by beautiful blooms and the gorgeous frame from Blue Fern Studios. The oval frame is a cut-out from one of the Pion papers.


For my layout I have used the main kit, the flower add-on, the MMM kit and the embellie add-on.
From my stash: stamps, masks, Inka Gold

And finally an old picture of my boy. The blue and green flowers match the background created with the blue mist from the MMM kit.

Magnifique Mixed Media Kit with Erin!

It's my turn today to share with you my first project using the {SOLD OUT} May Magnifique Mixed Media (say that 3 times fast!) Kit! 

The gorgeous pastels and fresh spring colors arrive just in time! 

"Remember This Moment" Card
Could pink and yellow together be any more pretty?? 

The die cuts and wood embellishments in this kit offers endless layering possibilities. 

For the base of this card, I used a palette knife and scraped on some of the 13 Arts "Matte Lemon" acrylic paint randomly over the background. 

 Then I unscrewed the sprayer from the bottle of the 13 Arts "Pastel Yellow" mist and flicked mist splats using the straw of the sprayer.

For the textured detail here, I used the Tim Holtz mask with some modeling paste, covered with the Stampendous Shabby Pink Embossing Enamel, and set with a heat tool.

Our May MMM Kit {Sold Out}

Stay tuned- we have LOTS more to show you this month!

Thanks for stopping by!

April Kit Layouts by Camilla

Hi! You have all seen the beautiful April kit. It is my turn to show you some layouts made with the kit. I hope you will enjoy them.

First a layout where I have been using some of the mixed media kit to create the background. I grounded with some gesso and used a text stamp from a previous kit. Then I used the mist from the MMM kit and a mask from a previous. On top of that I used the mask from the MMM kit and some of the turquoise pearl lumiere. I had to use my new flower mask bought in the CM store with some texture paste. Finally I used circle stitched stamps (from my own stash) and the rubons from the MMM kit. When my background was finished I embellished it.


For my layout I have used the main kit, the MMM kit, the flower add-on and the embellie add-on.
From my own stash: stamps, masks, leaves, old book pages, paper clip, gesso

Then a layout with some paper layering. The BFS chipboard is painted partly in white and then I smeared some Inka-Gold on it.

From my own stash: leaves, string, gesso

I created the background by tearing papers, then some masking and using the embossing powder in the MMM kit and then some stamping on top. The BFS chipboard is rubbed in the Inka Gold.


For my layout I have used the main kit, the MMM kit, the flower add-on and the embellie add-on.
From my own stash: leaves, doily, stamp

Here I have used the Inka Gold almost as ink on the edges using my finger. Then I added some stamping in black. The mist from the MMM kit is used with a mask and I also used some texture paste creating the swirls (a mask from an older MMM kit). The resin butterflies have some Inka Gold on them as well.
