Scrap That! May Kit Reveal & Anniversary Blog Hop

Welcome to the Scrap That! May Kit Reveal and Anniversary Blog Hop!
Starting today the 26th at 10 AM MST and ending May 28th at Midnight.

If you have just arrived here from Janis's blog, then you are in the right place! If not, head back to the Scrap That! blog and join us.

Today I am going to share with you my projects using the Scrap That! May "Romantic Spring" kit featuring the gorgeous "Butterfly Garden" paper collection from Pink Paislee.













Here is my first layout. Absolutely beautiful papers! I fussy cut the scalloped circles from one of the papers.

We received another bottle of Liquid Pearls in the kit, lovin' that stuff, I used it on the circles in this layout, its a great quick dimensional touch to your projects.









A closeup of the beautiful Webster's Pages blooms, for the smaller Prima cream flower in the corner, I wanted it to coordinate alittle better, so I simply took a q-tip, wet it a bit, dipped in a chalk ink and dabbed the center of the flower.



Here is my 2nd layout.
Also featuring the Butterfly Garden papers, for this layout, I chose the more softer pastel colors in the papers. Which matched perfectly with the blooms in the kit.











Ok lastly, here is my 3rd layout using this gorgeous kit.
We also received a Prima Mistable Canvas sheet! Ecstatic to see this! Along with a bottle of Perfect Pearls Mist. I went to town misting this baby and fell in love with the result! I mixed the blue mist we received in the kit with a green mist I had in my stash.






Here is the Dusty Attic piece you will LOVE, in the kit-oh yeah! I glimmer misted mine with brown, you can just see how well the shimmer shows on the chipboard! And the background on the canvas--super shimmery, this layout IRL is UNREAL!






Love the details on this canvas, you don't have to do much and it looks amazing
