The Velvet Room Kit

The April Kit is up in the store already! The Velvet Room - yum yum yum yum YUM!
Here is a close up of the embellishments:
And here is what I created with it:If you click on the image it will take you to the page that has a list of links to the products.

Also, starting this month- Specials for Kit Members (SKM). Every month there will be different items on discount for the people that have a yearly Kit Membership. This month you will receive a 30% discount on the Prima trays and all KI Memories Lace Cardstock! Woot woot!

Instructions for the tray:
First, I painted the Prima tray with Kaiser Paint and sprayed the heck out of it with Riptide Glimmer Mist - I LOVE this color!!!! Then I applied the paper using the Acid Free Glue by Helmar. I applied the Acid Free Glue directly onto the tray and spread it out using a foam brush. I made sure I didn't spread the glue to close to the edges so I could roll/distress the edges. Make sure you wash out your brush when you are done applying the paper ;) The Acid Free Glue does not dry immediately which gave me play time to make sure that my paper was centered... well, centered enough. I did have to pull the paper up a few times to readjust and it's still not perfect, but close enough. I continued to work on it even though the glue didn't dry completely.

So while the glue was drying I placed the alphabet add-on to the kit on, spelling "Becky's", to use as a mask. I sprayed Cherry Limeade Glimmer Mist over the letters and then took the letters off. By now the glue is set enough for me to distress the papers with Ink and paint and roll the edges.

Now, to embellish - Love this part! I added the alphabet first and even though they are adhesive backed I ALWAYS glue my alphas down with Helmar 450 Quick Dry Adhesive.

All the flowers are adhered with Liquid Scrap Dots to make them pop right off the tray. TIP: when working on something like this tray I would suggest that you stand it up so your work surface is horizontally flat. Before adhering the flowers I glittered 2 of them using the Helmar V2 Vellum Adhesive - I sprayed the V2 on the flowers, let them sit for 5 minutes and then sprinkled on Stampendous glitter. Easy peasy! I also sprayed a few flowers with Pearl and Riptide Glimmer Mist - gosh, not like I didn't have enough sparkle already - lol

The Butterfly was also adhered using Helmar's Liquid Scrap Dots. And the really cool thing about using the scrap dots is that I could tilt the butterfly.... now try pulling that one off using pop dots ;) haha, yep, take THAT pop dots!!!!!
I will be posting more scrappy stuff soon :)

It was beautiful outside today and I only had one kid! It was very refreshing to spend quality time with just one. I took Cali Bear outside for a bit to play and she had so much fun! It took her a few minutes to get used to walking on grass which was fun to watch ;)
This is her "Cali give me a smile" pose - she tilts her head, smiles and closes her eyes :)
She got dirty. She even tried to eat grass that she spit out, that's what is on her face - lolbecbeck out.
