Swirlydoos Baby Book Tutorial Plus Indigo Dreams Kit Reveal

Hi everyone, by now you have all seen the gorgeous new kit Indigo Dreams from Swirlydoos and today I have the projects I made with this kit to share with you.

Baby Book

To start with I have a video tutorial on how I made a baby book from the Heidi Swapp Memory Files Folder in the main kit. I used the the Scrapberry paper Primavera and coordinating cardstock to make the inside pages plus a few embellishments from the embellishment add on kit.

Here is my video:

Project Kit - Carousel

This month I received the Project add on Kit and in it was this amazing Carousel. 
I had a lot of fun making this and it turned out better than I could have imagined.
A string of lights came with this kit which I installed inside the Carousel so it can turn into a pretty night light. 
The paper used was the Kaisercraft paper from the main kit, I used the flowers and pearls in the Project add on kit along with a few extra flowers, chipboard and butterflies from my stash. 

I Choose Happiness Layout

This is the layout I made for the Sketch Challenge this month. I used the papers, gems and doily from the main kit, flowers from the Flower add on, plus the Kaisercraft collectibles, Cork hearts, twine and wooden people from the Embellishment add on kit. I also added a few extra flowers from my stash. 

Here is the sketch

and my close ups:

#blessed Layout

My next layout was made for the All That Flutters Challenge with butterflies fussy cut from the Scrapberry paper in the main kit.
Also from the main kit I used the feather chipboard and 49 & Market flowers, then flowers from the flower add on, and from the Embellishment add on kit I used the adhesive pearls, twine and word stickers. The paper doily and extra flowers are from my stash. 

Mini Cards

Finally today I have the cards I used for this months card challenge. These were made using all the left over bits from the kit
