Hi ladies!  This new SNS kit called Fall Flourish it’s the perfect little addition to every season’s LO or project!  Let me show you what I am talking about.

chicIf you want to go CHIC, SLICK and MODERN… this is the kit… I just adore how the ribbon just helps w/ the CHIC theme on this layout.

thisislifeIf you just want to have fun to your LO, then this is the kit too… here I used the rick-rack to add more attention to my main image and made a little flower w/ the light brown grosgrain ribbon and put a tiny pink ribbon flower on top.

I hope you enjoy these samples and the ones from the rest of the team!

Oh what fun I had this month! SNS had a wonderful sponsor, Tin Box Creations, and I was honored to play with TBC‘s Spring Flower Set as well as SNS‘s April Boys n Dirt Kit.

First up I altered this faux leather box. I used Tin Box Creationsdotted flower border stamp from the Spring Flower Set, to stamp on the Olive – White Stitch Ribbon. I also used Mini Olive Ric Rac from the SNS Boys N Dirt Kit too. Other supplies Used: Stash Beads (to spell “Grow Beauty”), Stash flowers, Fancy Pants Rub Ons and Paper Frills.

More details to this box can be found HERE.

On my Altered Tile Project. I stamped the Flower Garden stamp with Staz On ink directly on my once plain tile:) I then stamped the tile with the dotted flower border using Red Staz On Ink then outlining it with Red Stickles. Stash Sticker, Stash Blue Hearts and some awesome Mini Olive Ric Rac, and I was done!. Such a fast and easy project!

On my next project I created my Patterned Paper by using watercolor paints for the background. I then stamped it with TBC’s dotted flower & leaves stamps from the Spring Flower Set. I also “flocked” the dotted flower & Leaves stamps using a flocking kit I purchased from the SNS Store. The particular one I used is sold out, but HERE is a similar one, just different colors:) Once dry I used Frosted Lace Stickles in the center of the flower. The glossy Flower by the “nature” tag was the dotted flower stamped on the backside of cardstock, embossed with a stylus, then sanded and inked and then used diamond glaze on it. I also used Baby Blue Stickles on the Huge Tan Ric Rac from the SNS Boys N Dirt Kit. This LO amazes me that I started out with just a white sheet of cardstock!

More details to this LO can be found HERE.

Next up is an altered Kleenex holder. I used Mini Olive Ric Rac & Oatmeal Grosgrain from the kit. I also used Basic Grey Boxer Patterned paper – Cargo & Basic Grey Boxer stickers from the store. More Details can be found HERE.

I altered an address book too. I used White Twill Tape from the SNS April Boys N Dirt kit. Other products used: Bohemia Barefoot & Dots/Red, Basic Grey Archaic/Rusty & Scenic Route Chipboard.

My next LO is 6 x 12 in size. I used Mini Olive Ric Rac & Oatmeal Grosgrain from the SNS Boys N Dirt kit. I also used Basic Grey Arcaic PP (Timeworn, Rusty, Dirty, Primal), stash stickers and a white pen.

My Last LO is 12 x 12 in size. I used White Twill Tape from the SNS April Boys N Dirt kit, as well as Cloud 9 Design PP (Man’s Best Friend), Fancy Pants PP, a Love Elsie Star, and red Cardstock.

What fun I had this month! Thanks Tin Box Creations and SNS!!

This month I had such a great time working with the SNS April Showers kit!

I love that although the ribbons are all blue and white, they can be used for a variety of vastly different coloured projects!!

For this layout I used the white cotton lace from the kit. It was also a challenge from our Olympics Online crop last week. I used little gems on the waves to give a bit of shine to the water.  

For this layout I used the white venice lace from the kit….another challenge from the online crop! I just love the white lace!! I also used the Bo Bunny Teen Chic papers from the store.

I altered this Kaiser Craft floral hanging keepsake with Upsy Daisy Designs Tweet paper line from the store, periwinkle satin edge organza and columbia blue white stitch from the kit. What a fun project to do!

This month we were also lucky enough to be sponsored by Tin Box Creations and got to use their cool clear photopolymer stamps!! Thanks so much Tin Box!! I got to work with the fun and creative Styl’n Around stamp set. These are my projects using the stamps and SNS ribbon together! What an awesome combination!!

For this layout I used the stamps to make the snowflakes for the background. I also used the white venice lace, one of my favourites!

For this layout I used the stamps to make a decorative border around the page. The ribbon I used is white venice lace (again), huge dusty blue ric rac and white blue venice lace daisy.

I used 5 different Styl’n Around stamps to make these cards. It’s fun to see the many different uses for these stamps…flowers, snowflakes, funky designs, borders…they are so versatile! Ribbons I used are: white venice lace, white cotton lace, huge dusty blue ric rac, columbia blue white stitch, periwinkle satin edge organza and white blue venice lace daisy.

There is so much ribbon in this months SnS April Spring Showers Kit, four layouts and four cards later I still have LOTS left to play with! I thought I would take a break and share what I’ve done so far….

Sticker Storm

The American CraftThickers and Rusty Pickle patterned paper are also found in store!

Snowflake Wink!

I love the looped lace in the April Spring Showers Kit , it was a nice compliment to the Scenic Route patterned paper in this layout.

D is for dog

Again I used the looped lace in my ‘D is for dog’ layout.  The 7 Gypsies dog stickers also came from SnS, although I’m pretty sure there is none left now!  You’ve got to check in the store often, things go fast!


The layout above, and cards below both feature the AWESOME Tin Box Creations stamp set ‘Empty Alpha Lower’ , as well as ribbon from the April Spring Showers Kit .  Tin Box Creations was our very generous sponsor for this month, and we love them for it.. Thank-You Tin Box Creations!!!  You should take a moment to head on over to their site and check out all the other amazing stamp sets they have!
