March Gossamer Blue reveal


Hello, March!

I’m enjoying the lovely weather we’ve been having the last few days here in Pennsylvania.  But it makes me nervous. I don’t like when spring-like weather comes too soon, because then we all have spring fever and we know that the nice weather can’t last this early in the season. There’s an old saying I often heard as a child that says March either come in like a lion and goes out like a lamb, or comes in like a lamb and goes out like a lion. And it often does hold true. I’d rather March came in like a lion and got all its fury out of the way. The spring like weather is a farce this time of year, and just leaves people disappointed and cranky when it turns cold again.

But anyway, I did not come here to discuss the weather, but to share with you a few of the projects I made for the March Gossamer Blue release. No matter what is happening outside, the beautiful March kits will bring spring indoors with all the happy colors and beautiful florals.

I am seriously in love with these kits!! These are my favorite Gossamer Blue kits in the history of ever. They are a must this month, for sure!

I made eight projects this time, and I’ll share them over the span of a few days, so I don’t bombard you.

The kits this time are so very me. I love the florals, the pinks and greens, and the addition of black in a lot of the elements. The embellishments are fantastic. i loved each and every piece.

Here I used the very cool gold acrylic shapes and stickers from the On Trend 2 collection from My Mind’s Eye, the pink doily from the kit, puffy stickers from c’est la vie from Pink Paislee, a rubber embellishment from Maggie Holmes, and that beautiful paper and a transparency that are also from Pink Paislee  c’est la vie.

I punched out my doily with a circle punch and then stitched the circles onto my layout. I added lots of hearts, because…well..hearts! Who doesn’t love ’em?

Those gold acrylic shapes are just so awesome in that they are really unique, and I love unique. I get bored with the same old stuff regurgitated over and over again, and I really admire a company that can think outside the box and bring new and exciting things to the industry. I think these qualify, for sure!

This page was made with a variety of kits. I used the Life Pages kit, Life Pages Main add-on, and Life Pages add-on #3. The elements in these kits were so awesome, and perfect for some boy pages. I especially loved the die cut packages this month. The one I used here is from Shimelle’s Starshine collection. It has so many great pieces it it with very nice phrases.

I cut out the star from one of the 4×6 Life Pages cards and adhered it with foam adhesive. I added my journaling strips to mimic starbursts.

I love stars because they are so versatile and can be used for so many applications. One can never have too many, I think. And isn’t that frame cool? I really like it. That’s my oldest playing his beloved guitar. This was only taken about a year ago, but he looks so much younger here than he does now.

There’s such a variety to be found in the kits this month. I have so many more ideas to try and I’m sure I’ll be dipping into these kits over and over for the next couple of weeks.
