Lots to Love

The NEWEST Art & Soul episode is now online. It is all about Valentine's Day projects and Ideas. They feature the Veranda papers, which I adore. They also show cute lollipop covers for a Valentine. I made some last year and they are fun to make and oh-so-adorable. I got the idea from Jeanette Lynton, founder of Close to My Heart. She posted these last year on her blog.

I think I'm going to make these for my kids to take to school this time around. I will probably leave them blank and let them stamp and write on them. Now, to brainstorm cute sayings/images to stamp.

Also, don't forget to post on the National Papercrafting Blog each day for a chance to win a Felicity Kit. You only have 11 chances (days) left!

Have you been following the CTMH National Papercrafting blog? If not, you're missing out! Each day this month they're giving away one FREE Felicity Kit. All you have to do is post a comment on the blog. I've noticed that only about 200 people have been commenting each day. That's not very many, so your chance is pretty good.

I created this layout after already creating three other 2-page layouts from the kit. I love the color combination. I'm thinking either boys in the dirt or snow day for this.

Next month, I'm creating a workshop for three 2-page LOs using this kit and a Basic Cardstock Combo pack.

Trying once again...

It's been a long 7 months. A massive hail storm and a new baby in those months. Now, I'm going to try this blogging thing again. I will of course need my husbands help though! I am just not technical at all.

My kids just went back to school on Tuesday. It's been pretty quiet. Now we are all at home in the middle of another blizzard, hoping to get school cancelled tomorrow!

Here's a piece of art I created today using the Mojo Monday sketch. This was the first time I had tried it.

Supplies used: Veranda paper pack, Just Blooms Spring Blossom Paper Flowers, Pewter Mini Medleys, Creme Brulee Ribbon. All supplies can be found on my CTMH website.
