It's Scarlet Lime time!

Yeahhhh! I missed the debut, due to Halloween insanity here, but I must say that this kit was a TREAT to work with. This month's main kit is Autumn Harvest and it is LOADED with goodies from Prima, KI and introducing Shimmerz Spritz this month too! The colors this month really pack a punch as well! Here are my layouts using the Autumn Harvest Kit:

For Take My Breath Away, I trimmed out the cute little birdy and floral shapes from one of the Scarlet Lime exclusive papers. On the background, I added random pearls to the circle shapes in the Crate "Fireflies" paper.

Then I made a cute little flower using some fun fabric, a felt flower and button that was included in the embellishment pack.

For On the Hunt, I was inspired by the Prima packaging. They reminded me of little hills and that made me think of some pictures of Zoe during an Easter Egg hunt.

I made the cute muslin ruffle ala Jeni Boisvert style, by using the Shimmerz Spritz,in Plum Pudding and spraying the muslin generously. I allowed it to dry and then stapled the folds together and glued them to my layout.

I used the Tim Holtz masks included in this month's kit in a non-traditional way by painting the mask itself with gesso, spritzing it with Shimmerz and using it as an embellishment.

The November project kit is full of Christmas wonder and is aptly named All Is Bright.

 It is currently all sold out, but if you managed to get your hands on a kit and want some inspiration: here you go!
On the Tree, kinda put itself together. It didn't turn out AT ALL how I had planned, but sometimes you just gotta go with the flow!

I used some Shimmerz spritz and heavily dosed the chipboard tag. While it was still wet, I sprinkled on some of the gold glitter included in the kit. For my title, I arranged the letters to look like a Christmas Tree shape with a cute little sticker star on top.

I created a quick border using the Making Memories Mistletoe Wordfetti:

My last layout Bird Song was inspired by the birds that chirp incessantly in this huge holly tree we have in the back yard and this gorgeous glittery music sheet paper.

For a cool title, I simply added the Basic Grey rub ons on top of some of the letters:

I couldn't resist using the ADORABLE little red birdie and nest. The other inspirations for this layout.
