February’s Challenge~Hearts

Welcome to another Challenge!   For the month of February we are asking for HEARTS… if you love Valentines Day this  may be easier for you to do. I just so happen to like hearts and Valentines Day.

Here is what we are giving to our challenge winner this month.   A variety of doily’s, hearts, buttons, journal cards, ribbon, feathers, bling, straws, misc. embellishments, paper, and more hearts.  Basically a collection of pretties.. to use on any of your upcoming projects.  (sorry for the horrible picture)

This is my project for this month’s challenge.  I used a 12×12 mixed stitched canvas scrapbook page, and made a home décor hanging layout.  I recently signed up to be a Creative Rep for Linnie Blooms, and I just loved their version of a scrapbook page.  I used a Tim Holtz die to cut the heart out of their ATC card.  I am calling this my heart of gold layout, featuring my 2 girls and our cat.

New Layout & Album for Hannah’s.

Wow, it’s SO COOL at Hannah’s right now.  Are you looking for an excuse to get out of the heat?  Grab some friends and join us for our Friday night crop!  It’s Friday July 13th from 5:00-11:00 for only $10 plus it includes Dinner & Desert.. wow.. that sounds like a great girls night out to me!   If you can’t make the crop you have to at least stop in for our newest kits.  We have new layouts and an assortment of mini albums.
 Here is a new layout that will be ready in time for the crop.  Graphic 45 and some Tim Holtz embellishments.  I only added 2 photos but you can add more.
Perfect layout for the men or boys in your life.. you probably have a few Father’s Day pictures right?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here is a new Mini Album using the Tim Holtz Grunge Album & Bo Bunny.  This is actually a flip book!  Flip the pages one way for one child, holiday or event, then flip the book over to few pictures in another way.. I have my daughter Alyssa one way in this example when I flip it over I only see Samantha.  The front and back cover I used a photo of the two of them.  You can get creative and flip it any way you want.  This paper is so fun and easy to work with… stop in to pick up your kit~it comes with all the paper, the book, rings, ribbon, and embellishments.  You can complete this album in less than 2 hours.  You could even give it to a friend as a gift.

If you live in Wisconsin or Illinois you should take a trip to Hannah’s.
