Scrap FX~ June Reveal #2

**If you're here for my Housewarming GIVEAWAYS, please go--->HERE!**

Hey! Hope you've all had a great start to your week :). I'm excited because tomorrow is my wedding anniversary...not that we have any plans~ 3 little kids tend to keep us at home! But I'm sure we'll find a way to make it special :). We don't generally exchange gifts, but I'm hoping to at least grill some steaks and have a nice supper...maybe a glass of champagne (or two!)...

But that's tomorrow. Today I'm here to share with you my last two Scrap FX projects for the month! The theme is "Birthdays" and what luck- my beautiful niece Lilah just turned two this past Friday. Of course I attended her party and my sister Kelly even asked me to play photographer for her, so I got my pick of photos with which to work!

"Happy Birthday"

Scrap FX Chipboard used on this layout:






 ~ I've used my Martha Stewart Texture Effect (new fave of mine!) to create the "stucco" texture on my title and the flourish below it. I then used some light pink ink to dab over the top to blend it with the rest of my layout.

~The bird house and "Adore" frame were just covered with gesso. The bird house I also dabbed with my "shabby tote" ink and then blended again with more gesso to give it an aged look.

Additional Supplies Used:
~Prima Marketing "Fairy Belle" papers
~Prima Marketing & KaiserCraft flowers
~Prima Marketing butterfly
~Martha Stewart butterfly stamp
~Martha Stewart "Double Dot" border punch
~Fiskars Embossing Border Punc "All-A Fleur"
~Zva Creative bling flourish
 ~doily, lace trim


"2nd Birthday" Card

Scrap FX Chipboard used on this card:


 

~I've again used the texture effect on both pieces here. I love the uneven, rough texture it produces, and just a hint of pink ink is all it needs to blend nicely with the rest of the elements!

 Additional Supplies Used:
~Webster's Pages "Girl Land" papers
~Prima Marketing, Petaloo, & Wild Orchid flowers
~Webster's Pages "Winter Fairy Tales" trim
~KaiserCraft bling
~Fiskars Circle Border Punch "Dancing Daisies"
~doily, ribbon

Thank-you so much for taking a look at my projects today! If you're interested in getting ahold of some Scrap FX products, you can always drop a request at your local scrapbook store :)! Or you can find them online- I've now added the links of the stores online who carry their chipboard- you can find these links in the "Scrap FX Design Team" tab at the top of my blog. 

Have a beautiful day and I'll be back again soon!

AAAAAAwwwwwwww you know I love that photo of my beautiful girl!! And you have given it the perfect home on your absolutely GORGEOUS layout!!! I am in love with the colors you used, and all of the lacy borders make this so feminine and wonderful. The photo does not do your card justice, it is just so beautiful. I have taken it out and admired it a few times over the past few days, it's just gorgeous. I know it was a card for Lilah, but I won't allow her to touch it for a few years, lol!!

Happy Day Late Anniversary, Erin! We celebrated our 13th on Tuesday and usually have the same dilema having 3 kids, but fortunately the grandparents kept them and we were able to go out to eat! :) I love this beautiful layout and the great pic of Lilah! The colors are gorgeous on this one and the layering is fabulous!!
