How about a little My Mind's Eye?

I love this company. They seriously cannot go wrong with anything they do! I was lucky enough to get some of the beautiful Life Stories line from a Secret Santa swap in December from my KnK pal, Chelle. Thank you, Chelle! Tami and Cheri's manufacturer challenge was the perfect inspiration to stop hoarding these papers and actually use them! Sometimes paper is just to pretty to cut up right away. ;)

Kit 'n' Kaboodles May Kit Reveal

I know I mentioned before how much I love the May kit from Kit 'n' Kaboodles, but it is worth repeating. This kit features papers from the Pink Paislee Bayberry Cottage and Prima Flights of Fancy lines. The butterflies are from Jenni Bowlin. Here are two layouts that I have created with it, and more are soon to come!

Today and Always:This is the page that I showed sneak peeks of below and described some techniques with Smooch Spritz.
(The design of this layout was inspired by a Creative Scrappers sketch.)

I Hope You Dance:Check back soon to see what else I have created with this kit! I can't seem to stop until it is all used up!

KnK's May Kit and Fun with Smooch Spritz

Have you seen the May kit at Kit 'n' Kaboodles?? It is a total beauty, and designed by out very own Pam Bennett! It is loaded with Pink Paislee and Prima goodness, and I have been having so much fun with it!Check out this little cutie that comes in the add on kit!This was my first experience with Smooch Spritz, so I was interested to see just how it compared to Glimmer Mist. As I sprayed a little bit on a scrap piece of paper, my first observation was how vibrant the color was! And it is a little thicker, and not watered down. A little bit of this stuff goes a long way, so don't let the size of the bottle fool you!

I then decided that I wanted to do something a bit different with this stuff rather than just misting my background paper like I often do with Glimmer Mist. I wanted to put this stuff to the test. I pulled out my acrylic stamps, sprayed a little pool of Smooch Spritz on a piece of plastic, and used it like ink to stamp some flourishes on my page!Then I decided I wanted to do some stitching on my page, but I didn't have the right shade of DMC floss. Problem solved with Smooch Spritz! I cut a piece of white floss to the length I needed, wadded it up a bit, laid it on plastic, and sprayed it with the spritz, dying it the perfect color for my page! After letting it dry overnight, I was ready to start sewing!So, I guess I'll add Smooch Spritz to my list of must haves in all colors! Fortunately, Gerri-anne will be adding many more colors to the store very soon! I hope you like my sneak peeks and my little scrappy experiments! Check back soon to see the rest of my page!
