Flourishes 1, 2, 3 Create Kit

So what do you think of all the fabulous 1, 2, 3 Create Kits that Flourishes has been releasing? Aren't they awesome?!?! I just love how much thought has been put into each and every one to match all the papers, ribbons, embellishments so you don't have to.

Today we're introducing another new one and it's right up my alley. 

Amazing collection, for only $20--a great deal for all you get. There are some add-ons that can be ordered separately, as well:

 And here's what I did with it--I went vintage and did the extreme distressing thing :) I love all the gorgeous colors in this kit. Sigh. And see that ribbon? It has dots on both sides so no matter how you tie your bow, you don't have a plain side! Love. And it's not quite that blue--I couldn't get it the right color without changing everything else so I left it. And I couldn't decide which shade of rose to use so I used one of each ;-) And I LOVE that cotton lace that's sorta ruffled. Yum!

I decided to make a sentiment my focal image and chose the newly released Motherly Love. I stamped it on some of the patterned paper and cut it out with a Classic Circle Nestabilities die and my Grand Calibur. Then I made a "frame" with my Labels One, Small dies and popped the sentiment panel up on that. I ran the brown panel through my paper crimper before adhering it. You can't tell from the picture, but it does add dimension IRL. Finally, I added some bling from the kit and a punched out butterfly for accent. 

A couple more designers have samples today to show you how versatile this kit is. So be sure to stop in to see:
