So good to be back home...

Hi Ladies,
I'm so happy to be back with you after my long but fabulous holiday. I've really enjoyed what Katie, Michele, and all of you wonderful Guest Designers have been creating! You ladies inspire me!

Wow! Isn't this month's kit yummy!?! I don't think it gets any better than this - Prima AND Tattered Angels? It's like a little piece of crafting heaven to me! Since I'm just getting back, I decided to make a tag using the Bird Cage die by Tim Holtz. It's a large #8 sized shipping tag. The little bird is so snug and cozy in his house! (Sorry Cathy, I know you don't like to see caged birds). This little guy is very happy to be in his home: he's surrounded by gorgeous Prima Papers, and lots of Glimmer Mist. I made the cage 3-D using Grunge Board, but have also used regular chipboard. By spritzing the back with water it will become pliable to where you can slowly form it the way you want.

Hope you like it.

Here's a list what I used from the kit:
Prima Paper: Watercolor Rainbow Collection ("Whimsy" and "Tropical Lagoon")
Prima leaves
lovely lace trim
blue Me & My Big Ideas Rhinestones

Not in the kit but available from the Crafty Alley Shop
Chipboard and Grungeboard
Tim Holtz Alterations die
Distress Crackle Paint in Broken China
Various colours of Glimmer Mist (the kit comes with 1 full-sized bottle of GM!)
Gold Embossing powder

I'm not sure if there are any July kits left as they were flying out the door. So exciting isn't it!?!

Hope you have a great weekend!

Crafty Hugs,
Robyn xx
