Fauxflower Add-On (and a Walgreen’s photo code)

Here’s the original Wildflower Add-On from Studio Calico:

And here’s my own Fauxflower kit:

You can see that I ended up having to go with a general feel…  And 2 of my pp subs are large scraps, not a full sheet of paper.  I also just stuck in 2 sheets of blush cardstock and will make the lace paper using my Silhouette when I get to that point.

I pulled from my vintage stash for the papers, but added a few individual pieces that I thought went with the kit, including this vintage matchbook cover, a vellum collage piece, and a vintage scripture card.

Sorry for the horrible photo.  (I made this kit while still on bed rest, and so took pics with my phone so I could upload them easily.)  I made the flowers while lying on the couch.  Just cut some circles of tulle, tissue paper, and fabric, then layered and stuck together with a rhinestone or pearl brad.  They are super cute in person.  I’ll try to get a better shot when I upload the layouts.

These are a little better…  I threw in the big white flower, skeleton leaves, and 2 chipboard phrases because I saw them, liked them, and thought they might go with the layouts I was planning on making.  I just uploaded a TON of photos to Walgreen’s.  They have a coupon code right now through tomorrow–LUCKY25–you upload 50 prints and get 25 of them for free!  Thought it was a decent enough deal, and I’ll have plenty of photos to scrap for awhile.  :-)  Have a great weekend!
