SavvyNSassy April Showers Kit

This month I had such a great time working with the SNS April Showers kit!
I love that although the ribbons are all blue and white, they can be used for a variety of vastly different coloured projects!!

For this layout I used the white cotton lace from the kit. It was also a challenge from our Olympics Online crop last week. I used little gems on the waves to give a bit of shine to the water.

For this layout I used the white venice lace from the kit….another challenge from the online crop! I just love the white lace!! I also used the Bo Bunny Teen Chic papers from SNS.

I decorated this Kaiser Craft floral hanging keepsake with Upsy Daisy Designs Tweet paper line from SNS, periwinkle satin edge organza and columbia blue white stitch from the kit. What a fun project to do!

This month we were also lucky enough to be sponsored by Tin Box Creations and got to use their cool clear photopolymer stamps!! Thanks so much Tin Box!! I got to work with the fun and creative Styl’n Around stamp set. These are my projects using the stamps and SNS ribbon together! What an awesome combination!!

For this layout I used the stamps to make the snowflakes for the background. I also used the white venice lace, one of my favourites!

For this layout I used the stamps to make a decorative border around the page. The ribbon I used is white venice lace (again), huge dusty blue ric rac and white blue venice lace daisy.

I used 5 different Styl’n Around stamps to make these cards. It’s fun to see the many different uses for these stamps…flowers, snowflakes, funky designs, borders…they are so versatile! Ribbons I used are: white venice lace, white cotton lace, huge dusty blue ric rac, columbia blue white stitch, periwinkle satin edge organza and white blue venice lace daisy.

One more card:

For this layout I used the stamps for the border across the bottom and the white venice lace from the kit. I used some other ribbon as well. The Kaiser paper is from SNS too.
