Swirldoos Blog Hop Block Party

Welcome to Swirlydoos' January Blog Hop Block Party!!

Happy New Year and welcome to Swirlydoos January Kit Reveal Blog Hop BLOCK PARTY!!! If you came here fromSwirlydoo's blog, then you are on the right track!  If not, go back to Swirlydoos' blog and start from there.  We have some amazing projects for you to see today and as a bonus we have 4 manufacturer blogs that are joining in the fun!! There are 5 prize packs up for grabs so make sure to follow along and have fun!!?

To start off showing my projects for this month... here is my take on the January Kit Sketch! I tipped it to the side, I know, I know... a bit of a rebel I am, lol... and took some liberties with the circle elements, using paints instead to create the effect that I desired.

"She Melts Me"
 Here are a couple close-ups...


 Next, I went with a bit of whimsy, because you know me... I LOVE whimsy! And this kit definitely has lots of fussy cutting potential to create the dimension and details that I love so much.

 "There is Only Up"

And a couple close-ups of this one...

Then for a more boyish/masculine take with the kit, I used up a lot of the packaging to create layers...

"Being a Ring Bearer is Serious Stuff"



I hope you have enjoyed stopping by!! Make sure to leave your comments on this post, and follow the directions below in order to qualify to win!!!

You have until midnight, eastern time, on January 15th to complete the hop. In order to qualify to win here is what you need to do:
