Reveal Day at Swirlydoos *Divine Noel*

It's Reveal day for Swirlydoos December Kit "Divine Noel". No need to search on for that perfect Christmas Kit. Divine Noel has it all. From the new IOD and Bo-Bunny pattern papers to the new Prima and Petaloo Christmas vines. Everything you need to create such beautiful pages for your warm Christmas memories. With this kit I was able to bring out some of my old photos that I hadn't scrapped because I didn't have the right paper and embellishments. Enjoy!!

Merry & Bright
My boy and me.
I love the dark reds of the Bo-Bunny papers.

I misted the Dusty Attic Reindeers with Moonmist. Heated...then sprayed again to get layers of colors.

Aww, how I miss those little faces!!! They really do grow so fast. I love the look of the green and cream.

I made the poinsettia using my Cricut.

Just a little tip for those of you who don't have the Sizzix. I love Tim Holtz dies but don't have a the diecut machine. I found this shop on Etsy that sells precut die cuts from chipboard. You can find it HERE. I painted the chipboard and off whited, misted with green glimmer mist then inked the edges.

Tis the season to be JOLLY
My girls being silly....of course after they opened their presents...hehehe!

Just a close up of the layering and distressing I did with the Zutter. A must have tool if ya love to deep distress.

Spirit of the Season
These are my four kids and my two nephews. The smile on my nephew face is so funny...lol!!
I just want to note that this page matches in real life...lol!! I don't know why it photographed with the embellishments looking so red!! Blah!

Here's a little tip.... the poinsettia was a bit bright to match these burgundy papers. So, what I did was painted the flowers with Candy Apple Glimmer mist. Then just reapplied the glitter with gold stickles.

I made the roses and sprayed with glimmer mist.

This is my dd last year. Sorry the photo looks a little washed out. With the weather we're having it hard to take a good photo. For this page I did some fussy cutting and applied with foam dots do give a shadow box effect.

Just a close-up of the fussy cutting and foam dot layering to get some dimension.

The Exclusive Sketch
Merry Christmas
OMG...when I saw this sketch the first thing I thought was HOLY CRAP TRIANGLES!!!!!!!!!!!! I can't remember ever using triangles on my pages. It took me about an hour....and lots of scraps.....to figure out how to draw the damn things!! Overall, I LOVE how this page turned out!!

Just a close up of my triangles. I wrapped some fibers around the trees and added some stickles to the edges. Placed some rhinestones and Viola a triangle Christmas tree...hehee!!

Be sure to head over to Swirlydoos to get your Divine Noel Kit.

Thanks so much for taking the time!!!!!!
