Hi all Heather here today. I want to share a mixed media layout I made for Swirlydoos Kit Club using elements from the Main kit "Spring Grunge" along with goodies from the Add-On kits.

I made a video of the creative process , I hope you enjoy!


Along with a number of background techniques I did some simple layering and focused more on the picture. This is of Olivia on an old ship sailing through the harbor in Oslo Norway. I just happened to be a gorgeous day and the weather was perfect for a sail in the harbor.
Enjoy the close-ups.

You've got until 8/31 to enter your creations here.

We all like to use butterflies so why not enter the All that Flutters challenge here.

Here's the latest entry from Swirlydoos member, Steph.


No time for a full 12x12 layout? Well, we do have card challenge again this month. Check out the details here. See what the special twist is, too.

There were so very many gorgeous layouts posted this week that it was really hard to narrow it down to just one!
In the end, Bec's page featuring her adorable son captured my heart. The background mixed media, the layers of 7 Gypsies stickers and fussy cut images, the chippies and flowers and the "tick tick tick boom!" alphas all come together to form a stunning page, perfect for this little guy!


Congratulations, Bec!

This week's LOTW is not a layout; rather it's a mini album, created by Swirlydoos member Stephanie Dinnell. The cover alone, with the beautiful flowers and swirls, is awesome; but you have to take a look inside - Steph has filled it with so many pages, each differently (and wonderfully) designed!



Congratulations, Steph!

Donna has created this stunning page for the August ATF Challenge. I love the background and all of the details around the edges of this remarkable page. Her layers and embellishments are a perfect enhancement for this striking photo.
(She's actually given us a wonderful description of how it came together here in the ATF Forum.)


Congratulations, Donna!!!!

Congrats to Kathi for LOTW with her patriotic tag. She made this for the RR challenge this month and it is a perfect tag to celebrate the Fourth. I love how she created the rays on her tag and that ribbon is perfect. Love little stars on the ribbon. Great combination of products, Kathi.

Congrats to Stephanie for LOTW.

The RR this month is actually a tag challenge. Look at this patriotic tag Stephanie created.


Great idea with the ribbon. And, that vintage ephemera is perfect.

It's Saturday!!!

Time for another tutorial.

I am always up for a new, unique way to make cards so here's a card tutorial for you.
This card has some folds and edge punching to make it different. And, the card stands on it's own.





Here's the video tutorial for you.
