We have some absolutely beautiful scrapbook projects for you to see today !!  

 My first layout is based off of the monthly sketch challenge. Here is this months sketch.


Here is my take on the sketch. I used items from the main kit, as well as the flower and embellishment add-ons. The flower chippies and title are from my stash. I used some silks acrylic glaze to cover the clock chippies. For the flower chippies, I used some aged teal embossing enamel.


Here is a close up.


Next up is a really grungy masculine layout. I had lots of fun with this one. It's a photo of my dad and my nephew. I actually did a bit of fussy cutting. I cut the clocks from a sheet of the paper. I used the main kit and bits from the embellishment add-on. I got to use one of my favorite dies. The black gears are from a die cut. I there in some joint tape and metal gears for fun.


Here is another view.


 Next up is a really soft layout. This will be for the All that flutters challenge.

I did a lot of stamping and used lots of misting and mica powders on this one. This one is my favorite of the 3. Again I grabbed a few things from my stash, but a majority came from the main kit along with the flower, embellishment and mixed media add-ons. That gorgeous butterfly came from my very talented fellow design team member Angelica's etsy shop.


Lastly, I have a project for you. I used this months project kit to create this clock.



Here is the video on my step by step process.
