We have some absolutely beautiful scrapbook projects for you to see today !!  
Here is my first project,using the August sketch:

I love these black resin Prima Icons because with a little gelato, you can blend in whatever colors you desire! I fussy cut some of the delicate feathers from the beautiful Riddersholm papers to tuck into my cluster.

I lightly coated the "Beautiful" Blue Fern Chippie with copper embossing powder to give it a more hammered look. I love the crocheted Petaloo trims-I cut this one in half and used it to frame my circle.

My second projects highlights the lighter,neutral colors of the kit:

The kit comes with a 12 x 12 sheet of the Blue Fern lattice chipboard! I popped out the centers, inked them in light blue,then stamped them with gold inked script. The skeleton of the lattice was inked white and embellished with pearls from my stash:

I created a flower from the kit's wired burlap ribbon. Nothing fancy,I just kept twisting and folding until I was satisfied then hot glued a pearl center. Check out the cute bottle caps! Krissy always adds something fun!

My last project for today is an altered wooden frame from Michael's.

I stole Paulien's idea of using webbing from Dollar store shower scrunchies to add to the beachy feel of the papers.

The tags were all cut from the Riddersholm papers and secured with these cool vintage style safety pins.
