November Scrap Shotz reveal

This is my second post for today (and it is a doozer!) be sure to scroll down for my Curtain Call post, such beautiful colors this week.  I have had a very busy week with getting ready for this reveal as well as for an Online Crop that Scrap Shotz is having, whew! Anyhow on with the post.  

Scrap Shotz reveal time!  This month the kit is full of SEI Moonrise papers! Beautiful and so easy to work with!

For this layout I used this Design Dollies sketch:


Inside the kit are also some wood vener leaves.  I stamped on them with a PTI text stamp, love it.  There are also some metal filigree accents.  I wanted to tone down the metal so it didn't stand out so much so I dry brushed it with acrylic paint and then bent it for some more texture.  A CAS layout for me... have been battling not feeling well lately and not able to take sick days last week since we had Parent Teacher Interviews... thus a little low on the mojo and creativity. Because of the wood and paint on this it fits the Design Dollies Mixed Media challenge too.

For the next layout I used a Creative Scrappers sketch:
This is another simple layout.  It fits The Pink Elephant Challenge - brown and orange.
Laurel's November CT reveal

The Scrap Shotz DT was given this sketch to work with:

My DT challenge for November is to include text in a project.  For my layout I also used some digi paper from Gina K and printed it onto the back of some of the pattern paper.  I also used the Tim Holtz Sizzix Die and cut some leaves from and old text book.  The corrugated letters are Jillibean Soup and the others are October Afternoon.

I used another Design Dollies sketch:


Now a couple of cards with the scraps:

The  sketch this week from Stamping 411

For this card I used my new PTI stamp set along with the Boughs set from Schlosser Designs.

For the Etsy Inspired Challenge this week I chose this print:

I have had this Unity stamp for awhile and finally inked it up!

I so loved working with this SEI kit!  The colors are so beautiful!  I will be entering these in the SEI October Challenge for sure!

I really like the simplicity of the LOs - I think I need to give that scrap booking style a try - I am still in a scrap booking funk! Thanks for the inspiration.
