February Paper Posies kit reveal!

Thursday, January 28, 2010

Hi friends. I'm getting back into my groove after CHA. I feel much better after a good nights rest and now I just need to get my calendar organized. I've got so much to tell you about on my Examiner page and lots of giveaway! So be sure and sign up to subscribe when new articles are posted.
During CHA we had the February kit reveal at Paper Posies. This month's kit is all about LOVE!

Here's what Michelle has to say about the Feb kit: I fell in love with Pink Paislee’s Cupid line the moment I first saw a sneak of it. I fell in love with the non-traditional Valentine’s colors that offer great versatility for scrapping and card making. I also love the Kraft elements of this kit, found in both the beautiful Fancy Pants papers and the fun Maya Road envelopes. And of course, what is a February kit without cupcakes? I've been anxious to include some of Pink Paislee’s new borderline stickers and am definitely not disappointed! I also just adore the new stitched brads and tickets. I hope that you have as much fun digging into this kit as I have!!!

I really wanted to stretch out of my comfort zone with this kit and try some fun techniques and products I don't usually use. I also wanted to try a grid layout based on one of Becky Flecks fab sketches. I really enjoyed working with this month's kit.

I really want to make a goal to scrap myself more this year for my kids. This layout I wanted to use the Glimmer Mist and then I created my own flowers. (See my tutorial on this post)

Here's my grid layout, It's a little crooked but overall I loved filling in each box with something a little different.

For this layout I folded flowers and tipped them with Martha's fab glitter and used Close To My Hearts fabulous waxy fax in brown to create the vine the climb up my page on. I also took the chipboard heart from Maya Road and embossed it with my Cuttlebug and a Provo Craft folder. Then I inked it with Tim's fab distress inks and traced the swirls with clear glue and finished it off by sprinkling clear micro beads all over the embossed image.

I'm still sifting thru all my emails after being away but I want to share with you Stephanie Howell's blog. I've been an avid reader of her blog for sometime and I enjoy her blog because she writes from her heart like myself. Our blogs are a piece of ourselves that we share with our friends and family. It's an amazing outlet to speak about what touches our hearts and a place where inspiration can be found.
I am always inspired by Stephanie's work but it's her spirit that keeps me coming back. She recently posted about being kind. It was a post that really made me think and I love that about her blog. I know I am a kind person but I can be even kinder. People are good and deserve the simplest kindnesses especially from strangers. Please take a moment to read her post. I was inspired and I hope you will be to.
We have a sisterhood that I love in the crafting world and I really felt it at CHA. I met so many talented and amazing women and I left feeling so good to have met them. Thanks to each and everyone of them who was kind to me. Thanks so much for staying with me to the end of this post today and have an amazing day!
