Scraps Of Elegance June Kit Reveal-Whimsy!!


Welcome to the weekend and to the Scraps of Elegance June Kit Reveal!! The kit is called Whimsy and it is just packed full of so many gorgeous, and whimsical things. It is so perfect for capturing a little romance and whimsy in your life~





This is the gorgeous sketch that Suepup created for the kit, ao inspiring and FABulous!

The following is my take on the sketch, and shows the romantic, and Shabby side of the kit. It features a photo of my Aunt Annie's daughter, Michelle at her wedding with her new husband Richard, and her sweet son, Mason.


I started by layering in some of those gorgeous Prima Lyric papers from the kit. I did some edge distressing, distress punching, and fussy cutting.


The large flower was from the kit, and I layered in a Doily behind it to match the one I layered behind the photo. I used lots of flowers from the Flora & Fauna Add on, as well as some stash flowers, and past kit flowers. All the leaves were hand stamped and fussy cut, and then added in. I added flowers, leaves, pearls and bling to the chandelier on the background paper as well.


Here you can see more of the flower work, and the little stash clock that I added with some oversized chipboard hands, a little resin lock from a past kit and more of those Flora & Fauna Flowers, and hand stamped leaves. The Love Story Butterflies are from my Reneabouquets Etsy Shop and were created just for this kit.


I created the Shabby Chic banner by cutting card stock banners, and then layering them with banner shaped cuts from the kit paper. I then took and affixed them to a pearl strand, and created panels with some old lace curtain panels and black tulle, I then attached sheer pink ribbons to the Tim Holtz Enameled Tags in the Embellishment Add On, and added some little embroidered flower pieces from my stash.

Here are some close ups os the banner work:



I just love how Shabby Chic and romantic this layout turned out!! One of my favorite looks~I do have a very romantic heart you know ;)

This next piece is an altered wooden box with a hidden drawer, and it shows the whimsical, sweet side to the kit. 


I did tons of layering here, there are distressed kit and add on paper layers, Doily layers that I masked with the stencil and misted with the mist in the Color Add On, fussy cut layers, as well of layers of flowers from the Flora & Fauna Add On , past kits, and hand stamped leaves.  There are layers of chipboard pieces from the Embellishment Add On, and stickers from the kit. The little yellow stripe dots, and twine were from the kit, and the Tiny Dancer Butterflies are from my Reneabouquets Etsy Shop.


Here you can see all the dimension that the layering created.

I covered the outside of the box drawer with some stash rose ribbon, then created a pull, by adhering a plastic bobbin, and topping it with a stash fabric button.


 Here you can see how the drawer pulls out for hidden treasures, and trinket keeping :)

 I treated the entire box to a layer of teal Jacquard paint then painted it with a crackle medium, and then painted it with a white coat of paint to reveal the yummy crackle texture, then inked with Tim Holtz Ink for color depth.

This box turned out so whimsically beautiful and is so perfect for storing memories and finds~a little hidden nook~so up my alley!! 

I hope you have enjoyed my reveal day projects, and I can not wait to get to work some more with this kit, and show off how versatile and wonderful it is!! Have a great weekend!! Hugs to you and your's ~ Renea
