Scraps Of Elegance February Reveal!!

The oh so gorgeous, and completely romantic Scraps Of Elegance Kit-LoveSong debuted on February 1st, and now it is time for the Design Team to show off their work with it.

Just take a look at all that scrumptous, soft, yumminess!!!

Each month the kit comes with an inspirational sketch done by the lovely and talented Suepup:

Here is my take on the sketch:

It features a photo of my Aunt Annie's daughter, Michelle, when she got married just a few months ago. She has a son, Mason from a previous marriage, and I thought this was just such a cute photo with the sweet little sign "You may now kiss my Mom"! 

I fussy cut out the glittered scalloped paper from the kit paper and attached it with foam tape for lots of dimension, and also so that I could cut the paper down some so that I could put the background paper behind it. 

Here you can see the flower spray that I created using flowers from this month's Flora & Fauna add on, some, a large flower from a previous kit and some rhinestone and pearl pieces had had been hoarding for some time :)

I loved this chipboard piece that was packaged exclusively for the Scraps Of Elegance kits by Gina's Design, and was in this month's Embellishment Add On. I really glittered it up and added one of those rhinestone pieces to it.   The Vintage lace and trims are from my stash, and the little red roses where in the E.A.O. 

The butterflies are Glamorous Butterflies that you can find in my Etsy Shop, and are perfect for adding dimension to any page, or project. 

Here you  can see all the dimension and details.

This next project is an 8 x 8 mini album that I created using this month's oh so romantic kit , that was so perfect for that Vintage Shabby Chic look that I love.

 Three pages of the album are chipboard and there are two hand sewn, toggle envelopes and inserts as well. All the chipboard pages where edged out in Melissa Frances Glitter and then lots of details were added on.
The Vintage Shabby Love Letters Hot Air Balloon, is one of those pieces that I carry in my Etsy Shop, and the other pieces include a hand crafted paper clay tag, a little heart shaped bottle with glitter glass, pieces from the kit and add ons, found items and past kit pieces. There are lots of trims, feathers, and Doillies that complete the look.

Here you can see how "chunky" my album is and it is tied closed with a sheer, wide ribbon.

There are pockets with pull out tags. 

This is one of the hand crafted and sewn toggle envelopes. This one has a paper clay tag, and a pocket that I created by taking an image that I colorized and altered, and then printing it onto T-shirt transfer paper and then ironing it onto the canvas.

The pocket holds another pull out tag.

This is the backside of the envelope. Inside it contains a hand sewn pull out that can house 4 pages of photos and journaling. 

This is one of those texturized, corrugated pieces with lots of gel medium, misting and seed beads.

A Sweet photo spot. The Sweetheart Butterflies were created just for this kit and can be found in the Embellisment Add On or in my Etsy Shop.

This is another hand crafted, and sewn, toggle envelope. 

This one also has a photo pull out.

Back side of envelope. It also has a 4 page pull out inside of it.

Here is one of those laced up spots.

It has a pull out tag as well.

And finally, this is the back of the album.

Over in the Scraps Of Darkness/Scraps Of Elegance forums, I host an ATC swap with our participating members and DT. The following is an ATC that I created for Sarah Bargo (Sarahsmiles). I hope she loves it!! I know I enjoyed creating it. I actually love to work on those smaller spaces sometimes. It is such a challenge to stay in that small of a space and still get dimension and detail.

Here are some close ups of the details:

Lisa Novogrodski (Raining) hosts a card swap in the forums as well and this is a shabby chic card that I created and that will go into the mail, for my scrappy sister Cathi O'Neal. Cathi is a card maker herself, so I took extra care in creating something that she can appreciate :) It was created with a beautiful sketch by Naddia Cannizo one of our DT members. Thank you Naddia for your beautiful inspiration!!
