February Pep Rally

Hello pretty folks! Welcome!

If you came from Kat's blog, you're on the right track!
For this month's challenge:
February is the month of love, which of course means gifts of sweet treats all around! Don't forget that in addition to Valentine's Day on February 14th, there is also Galantine's Day on February 13th! This new holiday was founded by none other than Amy Pohler (Parks and Recreation's Leslie Knope) one of my all time favorite non-scrapbooking related celebrities! The February kit contains so many fun sweet treat elements like ice cream cones and my personal favorite...donuts! So, this month's challenge is to use something SWEET in a project! Bonus points if you too celebrate Galentine's Day with your BFF's!

Well, I literally made sweet gifts for a couple of my friends...

I used templates by Kelleigh Ratzlaff which you can get in her store.
I just love that polka dot (kinda) paper and pink stripe ombre from the kit! Perfect for this sweet treats I gave to my friends for Galantine's day! :D I made the heart tags by coloring them in with my Sakura Aqualip pens and wrote the words "For you" with a Sakura micron pen. Totally love how these two looked with the sheer red ribbon.

Hope you liked my project share!
Your next stop is Charity's blog.
Thank you for hopping along!

Here is the February Line-Up for your reference:

My cutie pie, today

Another page done and a mini-album using the February kit "Punxsutawney" by Clique kits featuring Dear Lizzy "Serendipity" papers.

I added some textures by embossing some of the elements

the background is a mixture of watercolor, glimmer mists and acrylic paint watered down

I inked the edges with gold Tsukineko ink

I am not that patient before adhering sequins, I just brush a bit of Mod Podge to the surface and scatter the sequins letting them dry by itself for a while. But I end up with a not so great looking scatter, it's just a mess in my eyes lol.. but for this layout, I patiently adhered them one by one lol...

I did a short tutorial how I used the cut files as overlays on my photo. You can check it out HERE.

and then I made this cutie pie mini-album... i kept it really simple...

Thanks for dropping by! Hope you have a great day!

Altered heart box

Lovely day folks... tomorrow is Valentine's day... do you celebrate? I keep on hinting the hubs what I'd love.. I wonder if he will remember everything or even just one thing I told him lol!

Today, I'll share this beautiful (if I may say so) altered/mixed media heart box I created for Graphic 45
I used the February papers in the Time to flourish collection

Love layering and clustering flowers and die cuts

Would you believe I used scraps of papers here? Well except the cover, I traced the heart to a 6x6 sheet of paper. 

I cut up the scraps of paper to squares, rectangles... I distressed the edges of each piece before adhering to the box. I used Mod Podge.

I dry brushed some liquid acrylic and gesso on the flowers, die cuts and bias seam binding

Hope you liked my project today! Thanks for dropping by and see you soon! List of supplies in the G45 blog. 
Special thanks to my friend Janine Smith for the wonderful littleflowers and seam binding, got them from a swap with her.

L.O.V.E. month

And also my birthday month.. yey!!! :) I am really excited to celebrate/spend my day with my family this year. First time to celebrate it with my darling daughter so it's gonna be quite extra special.. and that's from now on for sure! :) She's gonna be 4 months that time and I can't get enough of her as the days go by... she's just super duper cute even though she has lots of tantrums lol :D

She likes to be carried ALL.THE.TIME... I know it's not okay but I can't do anything about it (please no judging ok lol!)... I can take it, as long as she doesn't cry lol! :) The crying part is so stressful.. BUT I told myself not to stress over it.. ha! :D She'll stop once I pick her up..yeah yeah.. she's spoiled by her Mama and she knows it! lol! :D She got me wrapped around her chubby little fingers lol :D 

I love her SO MUCH... I already get teary-eyed when I think about how fast she's growing... she used to be this tiny tiny baby.. and now she has grown so much, so beautiful... my heart swells with so much love for her <3 nbsp="" p="">

No matter how sore my arms, legs, feet, back, neck become... lol! :D
SO imagine how glad I am when I can leave her quietly sitting and listening to some music, playing with Minnie mouse or with her drool (lol!!!).. that's also when this mama gets busy with crafting... the moment I free my mind hehe

During those sporadic moments, I was able to create some stuff for DT assignments... and this pretty below is one of them...
I used the February papers from Time to Flourish collection. I used a Kelleigh Ratzlaff template, printed and cut manually though I have a cameo, I am too lazy loL! :D I created one tag and one small packet to be filled with sweets (I ate the chocolates after the shoot hahaha)

More pictures below...

Precious Memories

I'm really excited to share with you today the page I created with Precious Memories, a new collection by Graphic 45.

(insert collection image here if possible)

Here is my page... and my beautiful baby daughter...
You know how much I love layering and fussy cutting! I distressed around the photo which I have stacked 3x and mounted on a thick cardboard for dimension.

I just love love these Petaloo flowers!

Found this butterfly chipboard from my stash. I think it's Pink Paislee? not 100% sure about that though. It's also mounted on a thick cardboard. I love dimension, texture and layering! Lol! :D

You can check out the list of supplies on the Graphic 45 blog.
Thank you for dropping by today, stay tuned for more projects soon!
