February Fun

Hi Everyone!

Sorry I've been lax in getting to my blog.  I've been a bit busy as you will see momentarily.  First, I started off the month with my February Card Workshop.  A new friend joined us, so that was super exciting.  February's theme was Valentine's Day (of course) and Happy Birthday featuring the For Always paper pack from Close To My Heart.  Below are the cards we made.

I love the black and white, it makes any other color pop!

The second project for the month of February was a Valentine's Day treat for a few kids at school. I used the Whooo's Your Valentine Kit from Close to My Heart.  The kits and extras CTMH comes up with are so fun and really make crafting easy!

The new Glitter Paper is so fun!  It comes in 2 different packages - one Black & Grey and the other is Brown & Tan.  Of course, I used the Artiste Cricut Cartridge to cut out the shapes!  The new My Creations Clear Treat Tubes make it easy to give treats without going overboard with it.

The third project I've worked on this month was a recruiting give away for a couple of friends.  Both of my friends are Thirty-One Consultants and asked for some help.  I will admit, the basic idea came from Misty Long and Suzie Randle, I just took it from there.  Using the Artiste Cricut Cartridge, I cut out several milk cartons and assembled them.  I also cut out flowers and keys which are symbolic to Thirty-One.

Of course, the month isn't over, so you know I'll be working on something!  In fact, Suzie Randle has asked me to host a Team Building card workshop with her Thirty-One downline!  How exciting?!  I'm very happy and look forward to meeting new friends. Check back for the cards that I create for this exciting event, as well as Easter cards for March.
