Kathleen's October Kit Projects

Greetings everyone, Kathleen here sharing with you my first projects as a Design Team member with C'est Magnifique! I simply adore this months kit "Among the Birds." The colors are vibrant and alive just perfect to scrap these pictures from my trip to visit my son and his family in Washington, DC. We arrived just in time to see the famous cherry trees in bloom! It was amazing to see. Of course there is also nothing better than having quality time with my little grandson.

For this layout I used the Main Kit and Flower Add-On.
From my stash: watercolors
Here are a few close ups.

This kit is super awesome!  I used every bit of it.  I popped the dots from the tags and used them as accent pieces in the above layout.

For this layout I cut the center piece of houses from the main paper and fussy cut the houses to use in a later layout you saw for the sketch challenge.  I used the Main Kit and the Flower Add-On for this layout. Can I say again how crazy I am over this kit!
Stash item: paint mists, stencil and modeling paste, drywall tape, doily

I used a stencil and modeling paste down the center of the layout then used strips of drywall tape (you can find this in the hardware store super cheap and it will last forever!) for added texture.

My third layout uses the Main Kit only.
 Stash items: Paint mists, dictionary paper, purple netting
I have a few butterfly stamps and I decided to use one on the papers to create my own embellishments that coordinate perfectly with these papers. Aren't they fantastic?!

I carefully peeled apart this gorgeous purple rose and refolded it into two more separate roses to create the bouquet. The background was created from stencil and modeling paste, a few paints to add color and finally a stamp for design.

Above, I fussy cut a tag, edged it in brown, and used an arrow sticker for detail plus a sticker underneath. I use lots of torn paper and one from an old dictionary for my frame.
For my final layout I used the Main Kit plus the Flower Add-On. I saw this incredible courtyard in front of a countryside house in Southern France. So incredibly beautiful.

To show how awesome this kit is I even used the packaging from the flowers for layering around the picture plus the corrugated cardboard from the box it all comes in.  How much better can it get!

I love the different colors the alpha stickers come in. They perfectly match all the papers in this kit.  Look closely at the large flower the petals have old timey picture on them. Gorgeous! 
 Just look at this precious fairy that comes in the kit.

Thank you for stopping by and taking a peek. I can't wait to see what you create from this kit. Happy crafting!  Please check out the Store for this and past kits.
