Homegrown Spring Survival

A few months ago, Stephanie from Homegrown Scrapbooks asked me to design with the Spring Survival kit. Here is an image of the kit, isn't it BEAUTIFUL!! It's a HUGE kit and packed with a bunch of "a bit of this, a touch of this, a whole pack of that!" The boxes I received were amazing!! I was fondling for quite some time ;)

There is so much to this and the best part are the "classes." Basically every Thurs a pdf is sent out with 10+ layouts, tips, techniques, and SKETCHES of all the layouts posted. Each layout is complete with a supply list of everything on the layout and step by step instructions...with MEASUREMENTS!! It's really amazing and such a cool concept. It's been 3 weeks since the program started and the girls are jammin' with layouts in the gallery. It's so inpsiring!!

Here are layouts I've created for Week 1. I've also added some detail shots :)
This is my favorite layout so far. I love the picture of Jasmin and I love using quotes.
I used Glimmer Mist for the Prima flowers. Hard to tell in the pictures, but it gives a nice sheen!! I am officially hooked on Glimmer Mist! I also used a cool mirror heart by Heidi Swapp!

This layout was an assignment to lift another desinger. I lifted Lynne's layout and changed it just a little bit. I used Glimmer Mist again, this time on the Bazzill border strip. Love that thing!! My sweet first born. It's so hard now with 2 younger siblings to get some Mommy time. I just want him to know that I totally think about him all the time and know he is going through something...just haven't figured it out. I love you, dude!


Finally, this layout uses a bunch of pictures! These pictures were from the Baptism party in LA when Heintje and I were godparents. Thank you so much John and Sheila for the honor! For this layout I layered a cut out flower from the SEI patterned paper, over a piece of lace fabric cut into a circle and finally over the Making Memories glitter paper. Gives fun texture and dimension!
I'll show more in a few days, along with some Glimmer Mist tips and techniques!
