Two Chicks February Kit


So today is another two-fer! I have the 4th layout that I have made using my awesome Two Chicks Designs February Kit, go get yours at http://www.twochicksdesigns.com/ and a super cute library pocket that I have created for the St. Partick's Day swap I am hosting. I have one spot to fill and I'm hoping that it's cuteness will inspire just one more awesome scrapper to join in :) Have to get ready for Penny's Birthday parties tomorrow and Sunday! I can't believe my baby is going to be 4!!!

Just Chillin'


Two posts in one day??? Have I gone mad? Nope, just happily creating away with my Two Chicks kit! So this is the third 2 page layout I've made with this kit. I may try for one more....

February Two Chicks Kit




Well, I've certainly been busy scrapping this week! I received my February Kit from Two Chicks Designs. These are the first of many projects I will be making as a part of this fantastics stores Design Team! You can buy the February Kit as a one time kit purchase or you can sign up for 6 months of the Kit of the Month Club and get a great new kit shipped to you every month! Included in each kit is the custom "Chick N Feed" which are all those cute embelishments that make your pages special! Flowers, ribbon, buttons, brads.... they've thought of everything!

Love Struck Layout

Me and one of my best friends got the crazy idea to take our babies, dress them both up like Cupid and take pictures of them together! The pictures turned out ADORABLE as expected so I had to scrap them right away. I mean I'm only about 1 1/2 years behind in printing my pictures... LOL! I'm in love with how this layout turned out!

Gingerbread Altered Can

Hey everyone! Just wanted to share an "altered item" that I made for a Design Team audition. This was a can of chocolate covered potato chips that I bought at Target last year. The chips are long gone but I huung on to the can because someday I was going to get around to actually doing something with it! Well, that day has come and I was thrilled with the results!
I used some Twinkle Jewels from Cutter's Creek to accent the peppermints on the lid and the band around the tin. I also was able to use a TON of ribbons from my stash to decorate the handle. My favorite is the brown rick-rack though. I just love rick-rack!

Flower Soft Valentine

For today’s project I wanted to show that you can use Flower Soft for more than just flowers!

To begin I made a 4 ¼” x 5 ½” top fold card from grey cardstock. Then I cut 2 pieces of black cardstock to 4” x 5 ¼”, one for the inside and one for the outside. Next I cut my patterned paper to 3 ¾” x 5”. Then I used my Cuttlebug Swiss Dots Embossing Folder - Cuttlebug Swiss Dots Embossing Folder to emboss a piece of 2” x 3 ¾” white cardstock. I adhered this to my patterned paper about 1” down from the top with my Tombow Mono Adhesive tape runner. Then I used my 1/8” wide Scor-Tape to adhere the black rick-rack. Next I cut 1 ¼” and 1” hearts using my George and Basic Shapes Cricut Cartridge. I then placed them on my non-stick Bazzill Splat Mat and covered them with Flower Soft Glue. I sprinkled Baby Pink Flower Soft all over the glue and let it dry. Then I adhered the larger heart to my card with Pop Up Dots. For the inside I cut a piece of plain white cardstock to 3 ¾” x 5” and adhered scraps of my patterned paper to the top and bottom. They are about ¾” x 3 ¾”. Then I adhered my pink ribbon with more Scor-Tape. I stamped my sentiment and added my 1” heart. Finally I layered the second black piece of cardstock under the white and adhered everything to the inside of my card. I’m so happy with the way this card turned out! Sometimes if you just start messing around with supplies you can amaze yourself!
