LOTS of great posts in our Facebook gallery from you guys this week. It was hard to pick, especially because it will be my last one! But, this frame that Ginny made with the January kit STOLE MY HEART!
All of that beautiful color and incredible detail in all those smaller frames make this a perfect display of how fabulous the January kit is!
Congrats, Ginny!

Keep posting your beautiful creations you make with Swirlydoos kits to our Facebook gallery, and your project could be chosen as Layout of the Week! All layouts chosen each month are then voted on by our design team, where we chose a layout of the month. At the end of the year, we vote on the 12 layouts of the month to chose a layout of the year, with the chance to be a guest designer for a month sometime during the next year!

This week, our layout of the week goes to Barbara!
This layout stopped me in my tracks! I LOVE how creative this is. I love how the picture is blended into the background, and the fussy cut fairies are so awesome! I love how your brain works, Barbara!

Happy Saturday!

Chances are, you have seen the new Prima Adhesive Rub Ons- they come in a lot of styles, and they are very versatile! Prima also sells foil sheets to go with them, but you can use a lot of other things too. Here's a project I made using foils, glitter and embossing powder with these amazing rub ons:

And, here's a quick video tutorial showing how easy it is to use the rub ons:

Hello, Swirly Girls!

While playing with the December kit of the month I decided to play around with Rae's chipboard technique. So instead of Perfect Pearls I used the dimensional paint that was included in our kit and I used the Mica Powders along with some embossing powders.

Here's one of the layouts with the chipboard pieces.


Here's a close up of the chipboard piece.


Visit Snapguide for the full tutorial.

This week our LOTW goes to Helena! Take a look at this beautiful layout using the October kit from last year:
I just love the large rips with the basket weave paper behind it! And, the soft white treatment of all that chipboard creates such an elegant feel to the page.
Congrats, Helena!

Hey Savages, Kim here. Today I am sharing a tutorial on how to make your own embellishments with molds. We have had a tutorial using hot glue and air dry clay, but this tutorial will show you how to use other mediums. 

When we were at CHA in January, we saw a lot of molds being demo. It appears the they are the "what's old is new" item. So let's dust off the molds and start playing. I have a video to show you a step by step. I will list below all the supplies I used.




Supply list:
Martha Stewart Silicone Molds (previous Swirlydoos project kit)
Mod Podge Silicone Molds (previous Swirlydoos project kit)
Stampendous embossing powder (red)
Ultra thick embossing enamel (clear)
