Scraps Of Elegance Design Team Reveal~November Kit~Thankful

Today is the official Design Team Reveal with the Scraps Of Elegance November Kit~Thankful!
This kit is so perfect for putting together Fall Layouts and projects and today I would like to share a few that I have created using it!

My first project is a layout that features one of our family friend's daughter Maddie. I just love how she was captured laughing out loud. Maddie has one of those personalities that is so sweet and so contagious and I hope this layout captures some of her vibrancy.



I layered in two different paper layers, tearing and inking one side of the top layer, then punching and layering in some of the Crochet Lace from the embellishment add on. 



I then layered on some fringed burlap and a corrugate board piece that I misted then painted with Jacquard paint and accented with seed beads. I then did some background stamping, and created a tear that I then laced up with burlap string, and then created a burlap string bow and topped it with the sweet little Webster's Pages Owl that was in the Embellishment Add On.


I took the Dazzles Stickers from the kit, layered them onto vellum then cut them out for some yummy and unique foliage. The Beautiful Days Butterflies were created just for this kit and can be found in my Reneabouquets Etsy Shop.


I then layered on flowers from past kits and the Floral Add On, then tucked a stash Prima window under the corrugated board layer and topped it with the little leaf in the EAO.


I cut out some of the quotes from the kit paper and added them around the photo and then created another floral piece with the Dazzles, kit flowers and leaves and flowers from the FAO.


Here you can see all the dimension that the layering and techniques add.

This next project is one of those little Tea Cup Fairies that I love to do, and features a Vintage image that I digitally color altered then gave sweet "fairy wings".

If you would like to create one of the tea cups for yourself, here is the blog where I got the template



I created the teacup and saucer from some of the paper in the Paper Add On, inked and layered a doily placed it on the saucer and added the cup on. I used the





I used some of that wonderful Ghingham heart trim around the cup edge, then texture painted one of the daisies from the Floral Add On and added it to the front of the cup.


The bird's nest is a real one. I love to hike and in the Winter after nests are empty, I collect them for my art and to decorate for Christmas with. I layered in burlap and then added my little fairy, a charm from the kit, flowers leaves and some hand crafted, hand painted paper clay eggs. 


Here is the detail on the cup.


The tea bag is one that I recycle from my morning cups of tea, then stamped and colored the sunflower onto. I added on some more of that gingham heart trim, a little stash sunflower, and a leaf brad from the EAO.

I love creating miniatures, they remind me of working with my Pawpaw and bring me great pleasure to create! A little magic mixed with sweetness~

The next project I have today, is a set of Autumn themed cards:




They have lots of layers of paper, burlap and trim, and I also created some foliage pieces by hand stamping and fussy cutting out the images.


The first one features Kit butterflies, trim and flowers, along with a resin piece, a Webster's Pages Wooden piece,  and  leaf brad  from the EAO. The large flower and Prima leaves are from the Floral Add On.


I finished out the backside for a designer look.


The second card is just a repeat of the same products with a little change up in design and paper choices.


And here is the finished back side.

Thank you so much for taking the time out of your busy days to stop in!! I know how crazy this time of the year can get so I am truly Thankful!  I hope that you have enjoyed my different projects with this month's kit and I hope that you take the time to be Thankful this season, count your blessings and enjoy getting to create a few treasured pieces for yourself. Hugs ~Renea
