Melanie, Cris and I all wanted to do a blog hop together and I couldn't wait! We wanted to choose one kit that all of us LOVED and could design with! We looked at a bunch of kits, but the one we all agreed upon unanimously was the Pink Ninjas Carousel kit! So here's what I came up with, and please hop on over to these talented girls' blogs too and see what they created! And Ninja Ally, we love you girl - thanks for the awesome kits!
My first and biggest project with this kit was this dollhouse. I want to say this was super fun and easy! It wasn't! I walked away from this thing about four times before deciding I wasn't going to let IT win! I started with the roof which was a mix of paint and patterned papers and worked my way down! After much frustration cutting out the windows, I decided NO windows were going on the sides of the house! The ribbons in the kit are gorgeous. I tied two bows in front above the windows, and one bow around the entire house. And the rolled roses in this kit are so unique, I used two- one at the chimney and one right in front!
The Teresa Collins paper included in this kit has some beautiful quotes. I cut them up and placed them around the house, and even on the backside! And I love the ballerinas - every dollhouse needs a doll, or cute ballerinas! They're in here! I did use some extra items not included in the kit such as paint, pearl garland, pearl embellies, lace, rosettes, dew drops, paper fringe and pink Hambly chandelier rub-ons.
Next up is a little Easter gift box! This was a fun, EASY project after the dollhouse experience! I just covered the box in the papers provided, added some easter grass, the heart embellies included in the kit, and the pretty wings from the kit.
The pastel rainbow ribbon that was in the kit, I used it to create a rose and added a few sparKly rhinestones. Super fast, super easy.....YaY!
Oh, this card I created for my bay area "should be 49ers but is a Seahawks" girl Karen! (cough - cough!!!) It was made using the glittery wings that are in this kit! Those were perfect for my favorite Hawks fan!!!
And many of you saw my layout with Ava in a previous post, Down the Rabbit Hole. This was also created using Carousel! The crochet flower, the rolled rose, the pink tulle, pearl swirl...need I say more!This kit is just loaded with pretty items!! Here's a closer look at Carousel:
