June Swirlydoos Kit - Design Team Farewell

It has been a true honor and pleasure being a part of the Swirlydoos Design Team.  I can't believe it's been six months already! 

I thought I would go back to my favorite type of layouts for my fond farewell....Vintage!  Afterall, the kit is filled with beautiful vintage goodies.  The kit features papers from GCD Studios Ella Blue Collection.  Talk about beautiful papers!  I was sooooo excited when I finally received my kit. 

Since June brings us Father’s Day, I thought I would do a layout featuring me and my dad. My dad has been sick lately and I have been extremely worried. It felt good to take the time and create something special where he is the center of attention.

This layout features gorgeous, vintage inspired papers from the June Swirlydoos Kit. This layout is based on the June sketch created by Beggahuna.

One of my new favorite embellishments is the beautiful chipboard designs from Dusty Attic. Talk about precision cutting! Lol. I decided to frame our photo using one of their chipboard frames. I wanted to keep the frame unfinished, but I felt it got lost in all of the dark patterns. I simply “kissed” the frame with white chalk ink. I didn’t want to too much coverage and you can see the natural color coming through. The photo is further framed with lace from Webster’s Pages.

Of course I couldn’t forget the flowers! Prima all the way. The large butterfly is a stamp from Tattered Angels. This was my first experience using Zva Crystals. I love them because they are both elegant and delicate. The ribbon is cabbage rose ribbon (scrunched seam binding) from the Memrie Mare’s Etsy Shop.
