Flamingo Gift Set with the Big Splash Classic Kit

I have been a little stumped this month of what I could do with all the fun prints and colors in this kit.  We aren't big into tropical vacations and all the fun flamingo items had me scratching my head.  After browsing through the Silhouette store I ran across a few flamingo items that I thought were adorable.  I decided to pair them together and make a cute gift set.  


I started with the bag and cut it from a couple of sheets of pattern paper and the cardstock from the kit.  I used the flamingo washi tape along the top of the bag and used a bit of the yellow ribbon and leaf die cut to tie around his neck.  


Next up was the card.  My silhouette really did most of the work and I assembled it all together using some foam adhesive and chalk ink around his feathers.  I then finished the bottom of the card off with more flamingo washi tape, a sentiment, and puffy flower stickers.  


These will be great paired together to wrap up a special gift later in the summer.  


How have you been using this months kit?  We would love to see your projects over on the Noel Mignon Members Facebook page.  

Happy Scrapping!

{Lazy River} with "The Big Splash" Classic Kit

I hope everyone is having an AMAZING summer, enjoying the sun, the heat, the outdoors, all of it.  Today I'm sharing another layout with "The Big Splash" Classic Kit.  This kit is a fun one, and it put me right into the "summer scrapping" mood.  

I wanted today's layout to feature some of the beautiful stamps that came in the kit.  So with that in mind, I began arranging the background layers and placing my photos.  I used fairly monochromatic papers and ink for this layout, with just a few pops of the complimentary color, orange, which I took directly from the photos.


Now that I knew where my papers were going to be, I went to work with a few of the palm frond stamps and 3 different colors of green/teal ink.  I randomly stamped the 2 different size palm frond and mixed that with the 2 different sized smaller leaves from the Heidi Swapp stamp set in the kit on the upper right and lower left corners of the layout.

I used the white glitter alphabet stickers, matted them on black paper, and fussy cut around them to create my title.  I added a chipboard sticker, a couple of puffy stickers, and a cardstock sticker to finish off the title area. 


Next, I mimicked the same types of embellishments on the bottom left hand corner of the layout, using chipboard stickers, puffy stickers, and a couple of cardstock stickers.  I kept the page balanced by using the same types of embellishments in both clusters.  I also made sure to add a couple of pops of orange in each cluster.


The last thing I did was splatter some of the blue mist that came in the kit on both embellished corners of the layout.  And with that, the layout is complete.  Thank you for stopping by today!!!

Creating Cards with The Big Splash Daily Diary Kit

Happy Saturday!! Danielle here today to share 4 Cards with you that I created using the Big Splash Daily Diary Kit


For the first card, I ruffled and stitched some of the gorgeous ombre sheer ribbon that was include in the kit, to look like a wave at the top of the card. I thought it paired perfect with the beach scene paper.



For my second card I created a birthday one. I love the Heidi Swapp stamp set that was included this month. That bottle cap paper is one of my favourites, and I paired it with some yellow trim from my stash.


My third card I stitched on the entire sheet of Jenni Bowlin Yellow Alpha Stickers. I love that large pop of yellow with the letters as the background. Next I layered some paper scraps and project life cards, then finished it off with some turquoise trim from my stash.


My fourth card, I pieced together some scraps of paper and stitched on some yellow trim. Next I cut out the cute beach chair from one of the papers and hot glued it over the ruffle. I finished it off by using the stamp set with black Versafine Ink.

Thanks for stopping by!

Pooltime Fun with the Big Splash Classic Kit

The Big Splash kit is such a fun way to document those pool photos.  Whether that pool is big or small :)  These quick snapshots are of my son and his friend from last summer playing in the kiddie pool in the backyard. 



I started with a piece of white cardstock and used the Tim Holtz Distress Ink and sprayed it a few times on the background.  It was a little darker than I wanted so I took paper towel and blotted off the excess ink. 

I then cut a few strips of pattern paper to cover the top of my layout leaving the bottom 2/3 for my photos and embellishment clusters. 

I used the Jenni Bowlin chiboard buttons in a visual triangle around my photos.  I then used these as a foundation for smaller word stickers/puffy stickers.  


I finished off by printing out my journaling and placed it along with a diecut and another chipboard button on the top part of my layout tucking it all into the smaller strip of pattern paper.  

I set a time limit for myself on this layout and I was amazed at how having a time limit makes design decisions so much easier.  If you struggle on every little embellishment placement I would suggest trying to set a timer.  It's amazing what you can get done when you feel the crunch.  

I hope you are enjoying this last beautiful Noel kit.
Happy Scrapping!
