Tomorrow is the 1st of March and when I hear March I think Yay, spring is coming!
Today we are posting the February edition of the 12 Kits of Occasions. Timing couldn't be more perfect to be celebrating with a Garden Party that is hosted by designer Michelle Leone. We couldn't be happier for Michelle who just recently became of member of the 2017 Papertrey Ink Design Team! We are so lucky to have her as part of our team. Michele sent us a kit full of fresh spring colours with beautiful patterned papers, die cuts and embellishments so that I can think warmer temperatures as I look out my studio window at snow!
I was able to make four cards for today, I hope to be able to get a couple more done before I put my leftovers away.
When I saw this week's challenge was to put a stocking on your card I went through my stamps and pulled out an old Paper Smooches set that it still one of my favourites, Merry Motifs. A really CAS design that would be easy for mass producing.
I can't believe that I haven't posted in a week! It has been a flurry of activity at my house this week with both of my kids off for their winter reading week and my daughter had a friend come stay with us who flew in from Saskatoon. I think mama is going to need a reading week now--lol!
Today I have a card to share with you that I created for this week's Inspired by All the Little Things. I am the hostess this week and I knew as soon as I spotted this coffee cup rack that it would be a perfect inspiration photo. I was inspired by the dark wood boards, the sentiment and of course the coffee mugs. For my card I used Wood Floor paper from Jillibean Soup's Soup Staples III and Stamps from Simon Says Stamp Coffee and Tea. I embossed the sentiment in white and the coffee cup I die cut using my Scan N Cut.
I hope to see you come and play with us this week, but first head over to the blog to see who I invited to be my special guest this challenge and to see the fabulous creations by our Challenge team.
For my last card I used the strong man from Stay Strong along with this fantastic mustache patterned paper from Life is a Canival! I knew right away when I saw the release that the strong man and that paper were meant to be together. I used a longer sentiment from Story Book Circus to balance the design out.
