Mixed Media Monthly - Feb. '17 from The Lilypad

Hello and happy almost Friday! I've been feeling a bit blah lately, but the latest Mixed Media Monthly collection (M3) from The Lilypad lifted my spirits right up! I just love all of the papers in the kit so much... I only made 2 pages so far but there are so many more awesome backgrounds I want to play with! I think this is why I love the M3 so much - it is so easy to just use a ready-made background or add a few brushes to it and make it yours, and it will always look so pretty!

I still have loads of vacation photos to scrap (plus I haven't been taking any pictures of us at home - winter weather doesn't help as it's always dark!).

Have a wonderful weekend!

Valentine Page and Card

I made this page for the Sketch+ challenge at Freckled Fawn - what better way to use up some of the many washi rolls I own? I love washi!


Sadly the colors didn't photograph too well - these tapes are so pretty in real life!


I also made a card + gift wrap for Valentine's Day. The paper is from 14 by Crate Paper - I had never noticed there is a typo repeated several time on the page ("Februrary" and "Februray"!!) so I covered it up with stamped images and phrases.


I love this tall format!


I used a sheet of scrapbook paper as the gift wrap, and added a couple of rectangles of paper to the envelope. So I'm all set for Tuesday!

February Fun

Hello there! I have been quiet lately because I was traveling to the West Coast last week. Now I am back, and back to scrapping! Today I am sharing some pages made with the latest releases from The Lilypad.

We've had a very mild winter so far, with this being a rare - and pretty - exception. To be honest, I don't mind snow at all, and I love the sight. It just bothers me when I cannot get out of the driveway. :)

And here's my first travel page! I cannot resist scrapping the latest photos, and especially this time since it was such a lovely trip.

February BYOC at The Lilypad

Hello and happy February! I have been traveling so haven't had time to make more than one page with the BYOC collection released today at The Lilypad. But I love how this one turned out!! I dug out some photos from our trip to Hawaii since the lovely colors in this collection reminded me of this place. :)
