Your time to shine - full kit reveal!

I'm so happy I can finally share my projects. I created a lot from this kit. I feel less behind in finishing my projects.

My first project from the kit was this 6x12" canvas. I knew I wanted it to be clean and have bright pops of color. These colors are perfect for my daughter's room so I am going to hang it in there. I collaged together the papers that had a white base, and then stenciled some white pops of color around the canvas.
 Then I stamped some circles using a coordinating paint (I used a toilet paper roll as my stamp) and stitched together these fabric flowers using the kit fabric. Each flower has three layers and is stitched together in a pinch for the center. I also added the chipboard heart and some assorted sequins. I LOVE the sequins in the kit.
The photo is from my daughter's first grade pictures with her nose in a book taken by Bella Jewel Photography. If you're local to Dallas - please check out her page!

I then created this altered box. I just picked it up from Hobby Lobby for like $2.  Paint the bottom white and the top half a sea green. Sand the edges a bit. I layered around the bottom of the box with the gold foiled paper and the gold ribbon. Then I added some patterned paper and a small piece of burlap to the top. I stamped "time to shine" with my distress inks and added a chipboard R that I painted gold and adhered with foam adhesive.

Inside I added this pincushion I stitched together with the fabric from the kit and one of the exclusive stamps. I also stitched on a couple sequins and added some pins. I wasn't sure if I will use in in my scraproom or to keep my ring in, but I loved the stamps from Reverse Confetti. They were made exclusively for this kit!

Here's a better picture of the pincushion. My daughter and I each made one. Such a cute project for a beginner. I love the tiny touch of sequins. :)

Next I created this sweet layered card. I feel like I should say STOP THE PRESSES. I am never happy with the cards I make, but I LOVE this one. The colors just came together perfectly for me.

I cut the tags with a Tim Holtz die and then stamped the sentiment with black Staz-on and layered with the chipboard star and sequins.

Here's a picture of the full kit. (I totally just stole this from someone else's blog.) Just so you can see there is SO much more I didn't even get to use yet. 

That's it for today. Tomorrow I have a double layout to share. :)

I loved all of them. They are really cute and beautiful. You have a great talent in this creative packaging. I wish I had some talent like that. I specially love that card and the pillow. Looking forward to more of your creativity.
