The June reveal up for My Creative Scrapbook - to view please see end of this post and for kit content images, and for more inspiration and details, please click 'HERE', and scroll down the page for each 'kits' reveal. The design team have done an amazing job in bringing some wonderful inspiration, techniques and tutorial's and these will be hosted throughout the month, on the My Creative Scrapbook Blog.
For June, I worked with the Limited Edition Kit, totally full of awesome products.
The flowers were misted with Lindy's Stamp Gang Sprays, and I also added in some small punched flowers, stamens and leaves to highlight the arrangement.
I tried to use up all the various elements of my kit in the below layout... a re-creation of the 1800s, with four beautiful woman, no doubt all family. Not really sure the view-finder really matches, but I loved the look of it in the layout. :-)
This month I have completed a few techniques to share on the My Creative Scrapbook Blog, including how I highlighted flowers, paper creases and edges, and more with Gold paint.
Also, I have completed a tutorial on the ribbon flowers below and how simple they are to create. I will link back 'HERE' with the tutorial, once it is up on the My Creative Scrapbook Blog.
I added in a few paper doily's from my stash to create the above card, with left over elements from the LE kit..and decorated the hand-crafted flowers using buttons from my stash.
I will be back next month with the July reveal and am eagerly awaiting my package to arrive!!!

How to create a flower from trims
1. Using the larger of the two trims in the June Kit, cut off a piece which has 7 points. Double thread a needle with strong quilting cotton, and tie off end well.
2. Run small gathering stitches along the non-pointed edge, as shown in Photograph 2.
3. Pull threads tightly as pictured in Photograph 3, to form flower shape, tie off well on back of flower. Please Noter: Tiny stitches aids in getting a nice gather in the flower and it will sit a lot lower, and be less bulky. AND, adding a touch of glue to your knots will keep flowers from unravelling.
4. Use metal elements as shown in Photograph 4 from June’s kit, to create a flower centre. Any embellishment can be used, including buttons, beads, pearls, jewels, etc. for the centre part of flower.
5. Apply to your crafting project (Photograph 5).
Please Note: The colour of your flower can be change easily, by using spray mist. You can create flowers which will match ‘any’ craft project.
