Scrap That! Exclusive Pion Design “Birdsong” Kit Blog Hop

Hi everyone and TGIF! Welcome to the Scrap That! September reveal blog hop!!

If you have just arrived here from Robin’s blog you are in the correct place!  If not, head back to the Scrap That! blog for the blog hop order and links.

Today I’m going to share with you my projects using the Scrap That! Exclusive Pion Design “Birdsong” Kit.  This kit is so YUMMY and the embellishments go perfectly with the gorgeous Pion papers. I used the kit sketch and only the main kit ingredients on my first layout “2 Cute”. The photo is my grand daughter, what a cutie pie hehe.


I used lots of layers and did lots of inking on this layout. I made the flowers using one of the tutorials by our own wonderful Vicky. You can find it in the Forums at Scrap That!


TIP: I added drops of liquid pearls to the flowers on the base papers, this makes them pop.

For my next layout, “Kylee” I did some distressing, fussy cutting and used lots of layers.

Here are some close ups. The butterflies are cut from the Pion papers and I added some stickles and a gem to them.


“Melody of Love” ..I just love this photo of my son and wife. They are expecting a new baby at the end of the year and are just thrilled. I did lots of distressing on this layout. The only extras that I added from my stash are some ribbon and the Dusty Attic gate. The music note chippy comes in the kit. I used the sketch this month from DA. I did some leaf stamping and masking behind the flower cluster.



Some close ups.





I also made a couple of cards, an everyday card and a tealight card.  I just love the tealight cards and actually got the idea for it from the Pion Design Blog. I just know I will be making lots of these around Christmas time as little gifts.




My final project is part of one of the monthly Challenges going on at Scrap That! So make sure you stop on by there and join in on the fun. More chances to win some yummy goodies!!!

This is really really funny. And a splendid idea, I've seen a hole bunch of new blogs I never seen before and I just love it.
You use the papers in a totally different way that I'm used to, and it is just so beatiful

I would like to express my thanks to this writer for bailing me out of such a matter. Right after looking out through the web and getting things which were not powerful, I assumed my life was over. Living devoid of the strategies to the issues you’ve fixed by way of the short article is a critical case, as well as the ones that might have negatively damaged my career if I hadn’t discovered your web blog. Your main mastery and kindness in taking care of everything was helpful. I don’t know what I would’ve done if I had not encountered such a subject like this. I’m able to at this time look forward to my future. Thanks very much for your professional and result oriented guide. I won’t be reluctant to refer your site to anyone who needs and wants counseling on this issue.
