Our Blog Hop features 9 fantastic blogs including our Design Team.
We have been scrapping away and are so excited to show you our  creations!
This is my first layout made with just the goodies in the Main Kit:
Lots of fussy cutting, and dimension to this one. I will be doing a tutorial on the Antiqued Butterflies I made with my spanking new Cuttlebug. I love, love this Prima line and the kit has the most perfect romantic embellishments.

Here is my Layout based on Amy's sketch and made with the Main Kit, the flower add-on and the embellishment add-on:

 I wanted to create a layout to resemble a pin up board full of collected notes and treasures. How sweet are those angels? Almost as sweet as my little girl :)

So, having used up all but one of my flowers and wanting to go in a different style direction, 
I went with a neutral based layout:

Using lots of gesso and my Cuttlebug gave me texture and dimension. The Basically Bare hearts were fun to emboss! The doily and alpha are from my stash.
