Last pages from Scraps of Elegance Jan kit using Kaisercraft 'Key to my Heart' and Heidi Swapp 'Mixed Company'

 Today I want to share my two last pages made wih the Scraps of Elegance January kit 'Delightful'. The kit is as always jam packed with papers and pretty embellishments and a true 'delight' to work with apart from the suitable name .-)
For the first page I used papers from the  Heidi Swapp collection .......
I cut away paper inside the 'diamonds' to make the design more interesting and individual.
I love how it turned out, and the stitching as well.

I fussy cut flowers from another patterned paper and layered them as an additional embellishment. 
I also added a couple of faux tags to get a more layered look, and as a mat for my title.

 I had some geraniums in my stash, but they were the wrong colour. I used the paint from the colour add on (Silks; Pink Grapefruit) to change the look of the flower so it would go with my design.

Some of the flowers here (mini roses) are from the Norwegian manufacturer Papirdesign.
I added a little gesso here and there for a more shabby 'aged' look.

This second page was done after the monthly sketch at SOE and I used one half of two different Kaisercraft papers and some elements from the sticker sheet.

I used some of the solid papers from the cardstock add on. 
I love the look of my punched holes as part of the sketch design. So simplistic.

I cut off part of the light blue journaling spot as I felt it was too large for me and added the 
border piece back on so it would not show :-)

My page is quite simple, but in real life there are a few more touches to it. For example I used 
pop dots to raise some page elements to make it more interesting. I backed a couple of 
the stickers with cardstock to make them stand out.

The pretty ice blue pearl brads are also in the lovely 'Delightful' January kit at Scraps of Elegance. 
Yesterday the February kit was revealed at the SOE blog, and HERE is the link.
Hurry up if you would like to buy the kit because the kit and add ons are selling out  
REALLY fast!!
