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 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.
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!
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="">3>
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)
