Burlap & Buttercups Nov 2011 Kit

Here are B&Bs November Main Kit and Add-On Kit ...which arrived in the nick of time...meaning just before the end of November...LOL:)

And here are my LOs! Time constraints aside, this kit was such a pleasure to work with that I was able to create these 4 LOs within a 24-hour much fun and so satisfying to be able to churn out this much in so little time!

You will also notice that I just got myself a new batch of border punches, and one of my favorites, Laurel Leaf is in this 1st LO.

Here's another set of border punches, using French Scroll this time. Photos were taken in Hong Kong Disneyland last summer 2010. Why do kids never tire of Disneyland? My hubby and I have practically memorized the LO of HK Disney having been there 5 times in its 5-year history...

Here is another Disney LO, as the girls posed with Eeyore. This Character Garden is unique to HK Disney, there really is nothing to do here but line up to meet and greet characters. Here I used the Wild Flowers border punches and layered my new Harlequin and Chicken Wire templates from Crafter's Workshop.

This next LO features 2 of my best scrapbooking buddies, Pia and Iris. We started out as DT for a local store and have been friends ever since. Aside from scrapbooking, one of our favorite activities is having our photos taken, so we have more to scrap! Here I used my Damask template from Crafter's Workshop and the Eyelet Lace punches from Martha Stewart. I also enjoyed playing with the Kaiser Craft crochet doilies and turned them into gorgeous crochet blooms!

I hope you enjoyed these LOs as much as I enjoyed making them, Head on over to Burlap and Buttercups to grab hold of the few remaining November kits, better yet, sign up for a subscription to receive the coming kits in advance!

Pencil Lines Sketch 258

Here's my LO for Pencil Lines Sketch 258. Can you tell I just got some new punches when I created this LO....teehee...I now have so many border punches that I have to reorganize my scrap room to make room for them...

I found Bianca playing by herself in her room one day. She had set up the kitchen and vanity playsets as the front and side of a bus and the kiddie chairs as the passenger seats, and was pretending to be a bus driver...too cute!
