Warning: Shiny Objects Ahead

It's time for the big reveal of the new "Your Time to Shine" kit from The Little Blue House. If you've been to The Little Blue House blog, you've already seen some of the fabulous projects created with this kit. And today, I'm sharing what I made:

Jumping on the paper-pieced-chevron bandwagon with this one, but all the fabric-inspired patterns in the papers just made me want to quilt them together. 

Here's another layout I created using black cardstock with Color Shine mist in Gold Lame' to add a little sparkle.

Lots of layers on this banner, plus a bow I tied out of fabric scraps on each end.

I think this one's my favorite. There are two pieces of 6x6 black chipboard in the kit and I used mine to create a hanging frame. I cut strips from the different metallic papers and lined them up to cover the front of the frame, then I brushed Tattered Angels Stained Glass over the top to give it that pretty pink color.

Finished off with a few embellishments and a stamped sentiment from the stamp set in the kit. 

Speaking of the stamps, here's a card I created using another one of the stamps:

Loved this yarn because it reminded me of the yarn ribbons girls used to wear in their hair when I was little.  Easy to tie into a pretty bow.

And finally, there was a 6x12 canvas in the kit. I'll admit it. Canvas kind of intimidates me. I don't pretend to be a painter. I know my limitations. So here's what I did:

I mod-podged scrapbook paper to the canvas. Then I used chipboard letters to spell out the phrase. Then I painted over the whole thing with pink. Once dry, I peeled off the letters and outlined them in black. I used Stickles to fill in the word "sparkle."

It's not exactly a work of art, but my 7-year-old is begging to display it in her room -- which I think is a perfect spot for it!

Im a smaller ring kind of girl. Plus, I harm myself with my rings repeatedly. I used to wear a marquee cut diamond and managed to scratch my face pretty badly by using it. I scraped the kids with it repeatedly, too. The wedding ring husband gifted me for our Birthday was picked because of its settings being much less dangerous.
