My Last Post at ScrapThat! by Sandi Smith

Hi everyone....this is a sad day as it will be my last time posting as a designer here at ScrapThat! Today, I am going to share in more detail my layouts made with the beautiful March ScrapThat! Kit.
Here is my layout based on Amy's beautiful Sketch...
  Main Kit, EAO and FAO
I love those photos of my great niece(Taken by Sherri Mouland Photography) and it matched these papers perfectly. I did some sewing. punching, stamping, lots of fussy cutting and got messy with gesso. I did things a little differently this time by adding a little color to the gesso with Patina Glimmermist. I made the little banner from the papers in the kit and used a little twine from last month's kit. Here are a few closeups:

I did lots of fussy cutting and punching with this one and sprayed the flowers with mist to better coordinate with my layout.The butterflies were made by stamping onto a transparency sheet with Staz on ink and I then cut out the butterfly images.

My last layout is also of my sweet girl and is my favorite. I got really messy with this one using masking tape, Glimmermist and some random stamping. Because these beautiful papers have a glossy coating on them, I had a little trouble getting the mist to absorb. I tore regular masking tape into random pieces and layered it where I intended to place my photo. I love how the mist looks on the tape. I also did some spraying after all the embellies were glued down which gave the flowers the multicolors.

I have loved my time here as a designer at ScrapThat! Such a beautiful, kind group of ladies who I will definitely miss and a big Thank you to Kaitlyn for having me!
