Final 'Beloved' project

Good morning everyone!
Every week my mom comes over and we scrapbook for the day.
This week we found a sketch from Stuck?! and decided we would both give it a try! I will upload my moms tomorrow!
I used the really fabulous Beloved kit from Scraps Of Darkness!

For this layout about my wonderful husband and I used the Kaisercraft Mom Cherie papers

I covered the wooden hearts with texture paint from a previous kit and then added some pink beads.  
I LOVE those prima flowers!

I did the same treatment to the gorgeous Blue Fern chipboard!

I sprayed the heart doily and the other doily with Lindy's mist from a previous kit.

Here is the sketch

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Come back tomorrow for my moms interpretation!

Love and Laughter!

Today I wanted to share one of my final layouts using the Scraps Of Darkness  'Beloved' kit
My hubby can always make me giggle
For this layout I used the Graphic 45 'Mon Amour' papers from the kit.

I sprayed a doily black for a little more drama

I fussy cut the saying from the paper and put it under a gorgeous frame from ScrapFX
and that cool title is also from them!  
I inked them with a black ink pad then used black and red embossing powder to add some visual interest.

I made the flower cluster with flowers from the kit, floral add on and some from previous kits!

I also fussy cut some of the diamonds from the paper.
The hearts are from the kit and I inked them with the worn lipstick ink from the color add on and then embossed them with the ranger rose quartz.

Thanks for stopping by!

More projects with the 'Beloved' kit

Hi everyone!

I am have been really enjoying with the 'Beloved' kit from 
Scraps Of Darkness! 

Although my granddaughters live  over 3,000 miles away their mom is wonderful at sending me photos!

TheG45 Mom Amour papers were perfect for this photo!

I used the flowers from the main kit and the floral add on.  The green leaves on the Prima flowers were a little too bright green for me so I used the Tim Holtz ink in forest moss from a previous kit on a make up sponge to enhance the color a bit. To add alittle more depth I inked the edges of the flowers and the doiley with the Ranger Worn Lipstick from the color add on and the Staz On black cherry from a previous kit

The wonderful blue fern chipboard is from the elements add on.
 I inked it with the  Ranger Worn Lipstick from the Color add on, then added the Ranger Rose Quartz embossing powder also from the color add on, then to add a little more I added the aged black embossing enamel also from a previous kit.

I created a small cluster with a small piece of doily and a few flowers.  I punched the edge of the paper and added a few BoBunny pearls!

I also made a romantic card! 

For this card I used the G45 Mon Amour papers.

I cut the journaling prompt from the papers, added some Bo Bunny gems and a few flowers and black ribbon

The inside!

I had to spruce up the envelope too!

More from the Scraps Of Darkness kit - 'Beloved'

Good morning everyone!
I hope everyone is enjoying their Friday morning!

I am really enjoying working with the Scraps Of Darkness
Beloved kit...

I scrapbook mostly my boys so its been fun to scrapbook a few layouts about my hubby and I....

I used the Bo Bunny Love and Lace papers from the Coordinated Paper Add On  and
I just flipped it!

I layered the die cuts from the Elements Add on and a tag for the title.  I inked all of the die cuts with black ink from a previous kit.  I also added some of the Bo Bunny tuxedo gems from the main kit

I wanted more of a dark black doily so I sprayed it with a black mist from a previous kit. I layered a lot of tags and die cuts under my photo from the Bo Bunny Love Lace Noteworthy Die Cuts and I added some of the awesome Bo Bunny Foil Rub On - these things are so cool - all from the Elements Add On. 

In the main kit is a wonderful Stencil from The Crafters Workshop
'Complicated Hearts'.  I used some black modeling paste and black crushed glitter glass - both from previous kits.  Here you can also see some of the layers under the photo.

I also scattered some of the Bo Bunny gems and foil transfers around the  layout

Thanks for stopping by!

First layout using the 'Beloved' kit

Hi everyone!
I am in love with the new Scraps Of Darkness kit 'Beloved' - perfect for all the projects that celebrate LOVE!

Here is my first one!

I love this photo of my hubby & I!

Layering Graphic 45 papers is so fun - everything coordinates and goes together so well!  
I had some lace in my stash that I sprayed with the Ranger Hickory Smoke Distress Stain from the color add on

I used flowers from the main kit and the floral add on and a few from my stash and I bought the red ones from the store here

That heart doily is really wonderful - I sprayed it twice with the ranger spray because I wanted it dark, then I layered the Graphic 45 chipboard from the elements add on.  I then added one of the wooden hearts from the main kit that I embossed with the Ranger Rose Quartz embossing powder from the color add on and Lindy's embossing powder from an earlier kit, then inked the outside with black ink.

Winter layout....

Hi everyone!
I still had some of the awesome things left from the Scraps Of Darkness 'Wilma's Winter Wishes' kit and created another layout!
Being from Canada we usually have some awesome winters perfect for taking photos of our boys having some snowy fun!

For this layout I used the January Bo Bunny Sketch

Cody & Ty were building snowmen and Ty got tired and decided it was time to take a break!

I used the Bo Bunny Sleigh ride papers which were perfect for this photo!

I created a flower cluster using flowers from the floral add on as well as some from previous kits, the Bo Bunny layered chipboard tree, and Bo Bunny snowflakes - all from the kit and add ons.

To coordinate everything in my cluster I used some home made snow - a mixture of modeling paste, gesso and mica powder then while still wet I added some fine glitter.

The tree was so cute before but I love how the snow accents it.

I added some random Zva Creative gems elements add on.

and I added some more snow to the Bo Bunny title.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
