Hello Everyone!!
I have a fun little tutorial to share with you today using the December 2016 Limited Edition Kit!!
 
Guys I am just in love with this kit, it is just so jammed packed with gorgeousness, when I opened it, I literally gasped! So as I was looking through all the goodies in the kit, I came across this beautiful bottle with a Christmas tree and glitter inside….immediately had so many ideas as to what I might do with this unique embellishment…..I decided I was going to repurpose the bottle along with the contents inside! So without further ado I am going to share this process with you!
 
REPURPOSED EMBELLISHMENT
 
FAUX ICICLE
 
Supplies Needed:
Paper (I used paper from the kit)
Scissors
Gesso
Prima bottle embellishment from the kit
Glitter tray, paper plate or paper (anything to catch the excess glitter)
 
 


STEP 1:
 
Cut strip of paper approximately the length and height you need for your project (I just needed a very small strip). I then a shape of dripping icicles freehanded (you can draw this very lightly with pencil first before cutting if you need to as you will be covering the shape anyway).
 
 
 
STEP 2:
Once my shape was cut, I covered it generously with a thick coat of gesso. You can also you texture paste for this as well as the thicker and more textured you get it, the more realistic it will look. I just used a dobber for mine, but you can use a paint brush with dabbing motions as you are putting on the gesso or texture paste to achieve a thicker, rough texture.
 
 
 
STEP 3:
Y ou want to complete this step rather quickly before the gesso or texture paste begins to dry, so I suggest having the Prima bottle embellishment close by with the lid off and the tree out (to get the tree out you can shake it towards the top and grasp it with your fingers OR  with a pair of tweezers).  Once you are done covering the icicle with gesso or texture paste, dump the glitter from the bottle over the wet icicle (this is best done over a glitter tray, paper plate or a piece of paper to catch the excess glitter).



STEP 4:
Once you have completely covered the icicle with glitter from the bottle, shake off the excess.

 

STEP 5:

The final step, is to set it aside and allow it to dry completely before adhering it to your project!

My final results

I used this EXACT same process for my snowflake chipboard as I did to cover my icicle, this is my finished result!


When I was all finished with both my faux icicle and snowflake I STILL had some left over glitter, so I decided to brush some of the flowers from the kit with some gesso and apply some glitter to them as well for some added sparkle and shine!


After I was all finished up with the glitter from the bottle, I decided I wanted to use the bottle for something real special.....a keepsake ornament. So I will also share with you a tutorial on how I repurposed the bottle into an ornament.



KEEPSAKE ORNAMANET

Supplies Needed
 From the December LE Kit:
Left over, empty Prima bottle embellishment
Gold sequins
Scissors
1 1/2" width by approximately 3 1/2" length paper with sentiment written on it
Prima Christmas tree sticker
Punched snowflake
Number '25' fussy cut from one of the kit papers
Gold twine
Red ribbon
Hot glue



STEP 1:
Make sure the glitter bottle is rinsed out and thoroughly dried


STEP 2
Cut the thread at the end of the strand of sequins to allow the sequins to slip off the thread


STEP 3
Cut the excess thread from the strand of sequins, roll up the sentiment and secure it with the thread from the sequins.



STEP 4
Place both sequins and sentiment inside the bottle.


STEP 5
Tie a piece of the gold twine around the Christmas tree sticker embellishment. Then adhere the tree, snow flake and fussy cut '25' to the bottle with hot glue.



My Final Results

I hope you liked my tutorial, thanks for taking the time to check it out! I hope that I have inspired you to get creative and think outside the box with your kit supplies!
Take care!

Another 'My Creative Scrapbook' DT Layout

 
 
Hello Everyone, thanks for stopping by!
It's a beautiful day here in Kentucky, not too hot, not too cold.....just right! Perfect day for scrapping, if I could find a minute to sneak into my scrap room that it!
 
Today I am super excited to share my second DT layout for
 
 
 dec-le-kit 
 

This kit features the gorgeous Sweet Peppermint Collection from Prima Marketing, as well as some paper and goodies from Blue Fern Designs and Authentique!!
 
Without further ado, this is my second creation
 
 
 
Ya'll this kit is phenomenal, I had so much fun with all the soft pastel colors which is a gorgeous twist on the original holiday colors! 
 
I found the photo's on pinterest and I'm a big believer in giving credit to others for their work, so visit this link to see the incredible work from this photographer!!
 
Basically for this layout, I did A LOT of distressing using my Invild Bolme Distress Tool and A LOT of layering to achieve that vintage shabby chic look that I absolutely adore!
 
I have a tutorial I will be posting in the couple of weeks on the chipboard, icicles and flowers, so I won't cover them in this post. However, I did add a lot of doilies from my own collection, as well as some of the Prima stickers from the Sweet Peppermint collection which is found in the kit. When I was finished I gave everything a quick white was with some gesso!
 
Thanks for stopping by, I love reading your feedback, so be sure to leave me a comment! If you have any questions, leave me a comment, contact me by email or you can find me on facebook!
 
Thanks for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed my layout and are inspired to create as well!

MY CREATIVE SCRAPBOOK DECEMBER 2016 LIMITED EDITION KIT DT LAYOUT

 
 
Hello Everyone, thanks for stopping by!
I hope you all are enjoying this wonderful holiday season, I just love this time of year!
 
Today I am super excited to share my very first DT layout for
 
 
dec-le-kit
 
This kit features the gorgeous Sweet Peppermint Collection from Prima Marketing, as well as some paper and goodies from Blue Fern Designs and Authentique!!
 
Without further adieu, this is my first creation
 
 
Ya'll this kit is phenomenal, I had so much fun with all the soft pastel colors which is a gorgeous twist on the original holiday colors! 
I used a random photo I found on the internet which I was not able to trace back to give credits, so I will just credit Pinterest.com  
 
Basically for this layout, I did A LOT of distressing using my Invild Bolme Distress Tool and A LOT of layering to achieve that vintage shabby chic look that I absolutely adore!
 
Beneath my layering you may notice a pop of aqua color.....I used some gelato's from Faber castell for some added interest and depth. I then added a few doilies from my own collection, these are not found in the kit.
 
So unfortunately My editing program is acting up today and I am not able to add the close up's I will try to include them a bit later, but as you can see, I did a lot of paper layering and a pretty flower cluster using some more gorgeousness from Prima. I also cut some of the wording from the papers to add some added festive interest.
 
Thanks for stopping by, I love reading your feedback, so be sure to leave me a comment! If you have any questions, leave me a comment, contact me by email or you can find me on facebook!
 
Thanks for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed my layout and are inspired to create as well!
