I loved working with this kit! The Prima Divine paper are simply gorgeous! I managed to make 3 very layered layouts, a card and an OTP project with this kit which means this kit is huge! Scroll down to see what I made with this AMAZING kit!

"Puppy Kisses" Layout

My first layout is based on my sketch for this month. I used the Main Kit, The Embellishment Add On and Flower Add On for this layout. The doily is from my stash. I took this picture a few weeks ago of my new puppy and I. The timing was perfect since she actually licked me when I snapped this photo!

"Mr. and Mrs. Doria" Layout

This layout is based on Dusty Attic April Sketch. I used the Main Kit, The Embellishment Add On and Flower Add On for this layout. The doily, small flowers, and Dusty Attic chipboard are from my stash. The leaves, butterflies and title are all handmade by me. This is a wedding picture (still trying to finish my album!) of my hubby and I as we were being introduced as Mr. and Mrs. during out reception.

"Me" Layout
This layout is based on Prima April BAP. I used the Main Kit, The Embellishment Add On and Flower Add On for this layout. The leaves are handmade by me and glimmer mists and acrylic paint used are from my stash. My hubby took this picture of me in the same spot we got married.

"Birthday card and Box Set"
I used the Main Kit only for this birthday set. I embossed a Heartfelt Creations doily stamp on the vellum included in this kit and fuzzy cut it and added it to my projects. The stamps used are all by Heartfelt Creations, of course.

Come back later throughout this month and I'll feature each project/layout at a time with close ups and give you tips and techniques on how I made them!
