A closer look at the kit first.

Presenting my kit "Irish dream"      (because of the green and orange)

As usual I start with the PAPERS, here's my collection.

Top left is a couple of ghastly ones that contain orange, so in they went!
 Bottom row, I added a pink/brown heart garland (partly used) and a few 6x6 papers in green.
Also, more doileys and 2 neutral Prima papers to "tame" the bright ones. 
 Then at the last minute I remembered this paper, So, it has gone in too. 

I found a collection of TAGS to suit.

I've also added in some chevron bags which will be good or layering. 

Here are my extra EMBELLISHMENTS. 

As well as the rose gold alphas, I will use up existing partly used alpha sets in pink and green.
I'll also add brads, paint, ink and smaller items if required.
I chose to use no stamps. I tend to forget those anyway. 

Welcome to our Guest Designer: Karen Pietruszkiewicz , looking forward to you joining us. 

"I am a newly retired Neonatal Nurse Practitioner that loves being home now full time with my 5 rescue dogs and 2 cats and catching up on all of my scrappy fun that I have so missed over the years when I was working! I started scrapbooking in the early 90's with Creative Memories shortly after I got married. At the time my Husband was Active Duty in the Submarine Service so had LOTS of time on my hands when he deployed to keep busy, thank goodness for scrapping! I also love jewlery making, reading, and travel, looking forward to checking off places on my Bucket List one at a time! I am also a Certified Pet Massage Practitioner, but unfortunately, with physical limitations and progressive arthritis, I have not been able to continue with this as a business but enjoy the occasional massages I can provide the rescue dogs at local shelters. I am so happy I found CKC and love seeing what you all are able to do with shopping your own stash, so so inspiring! I like to scrap non chronologically with what I am in the mood to do that particular day and try and do something in my crafty space every day! It is truly my therapy in this crazy world...Thank you all so much for having me this month, it is truly an honor!!! Karen,"

Now here's the blog hop.

Julene, I love how you've made the kit feel softer with the addition of ribbon, doilies and some really lovely florals. Enjoy your month of creating x

Julene, I love the greens in your kit and the small floral is a perfect match to the kit. Have fun scrapping.

Love the orange and green color palette. That chevron bag is a super fun element to tuck in this kit. Plus ribbons and doilies! So good.

Had a good giggle over the “ghastly papers, lol! My faves are the bundle of tags & the ribbon bits - I always think of you using your mother’s stash for those 💕

Tara O said...

Your kit is just beautiful!!! I love that it's so green too!

Oh nicely done, I like those 6 x 6 with the floral wreaths, especially. And ribbon, I am rediscovering ribbon lately too.
