From Here 2 Scrapternity January IT Reveal

I just love it over at From Here 2 Scrapternity. Everyone is super nice & it is always so much fun. Being part of the Inspirational Team, I get a wonderful supply of goodies to work with each month. January was no exception. It seemed like the more scraps I created w/ the kit, the more I came up with. It was the never ending supply of goodies! Again, some of the layouts I did using Nuts About Sketches sketches, so I will indicate which ones, & you may see them pop up in another post. fyi.

As I am writing this entry, I realized I did so much w/ this kit, that I am going to spread it out into two posts. Stay tuned for the rest:







Thanks for looking. Stop back again real soon.

Scraptacular February Reveals

I know....this post is at the end of February & I am just now sharing with you the actual designs of the February kit from Scraptacular. But at least you got to join in on the blog hop & see some of the creations then, right? And I must say, at least I posted these in the correct month & not 2 months later like I have been! Right? lol. In fact, I used this kit right down to scraps, then used the scraps.....As usual, her kits are out of this world! I love em, & really look forward to them each & every month!

Since I was able to create so much with this kit, I will break it down into 2 posts, so stay tuned for the rest:

This lo (which I also showed you during the blog hop) was created using the Scraptacular February sketch of the month by Liz Chidster:




Lo created using NAS sketch #148:

Scraptacular January Reveal

Although the kit was incredible, as usual, I ran out of time, & wasn't able to create as much as I usually do with her kits. But the Scraptacular kit did allow me to turn out some cute layouts. Let's see if you agree:



Layout created using Nuts About Sketches #142 sketch:



This card was made from the packaging that the Prima flowers came in. I thought it was so pretty that I just couldn't let it go to waste.
I hope you enjoyed them. I look forward to seeing you again soon....

Welcome to Scraptacular's Valentine's Day Blog Hop

Welcome to the Scraptacular Valentine's Day Blog Hop!! I am so glad you are hopping with us, the Design Team, on this very "LOVE"ly day!

I am your 6th stop on the hop, but make sure that you follow the hop all the way through. If you got here in the middle, please make sure to start at Scraptacular's blog so that you do not miss a single thing!! There is so much to see, and maybe a prize or two along the way. You have until the end of the week to hop to each of our blogs and come play along with us for a chance to win the GRAND prize below!

The blog hop is full of inspiration and some of it based on this beautiful February Scraptacular Sketch created by Liz Chidester.....



This is my creation using the lovely sketch & the supplies from the fabulous February kit.


Here is your hopping order:

Scraptacular Blog
Lisa
Liz
Julie
Ilene
Anneliese <=====you are here

Tiffany
Beth
Amy

After you have visited all of the blogs, & left everyone a comment, be sure to finish on the message board for a chance to win the BEAUTIFUL February kit! Just look at it...



However, you can still purchase one in the store or online here, and use it to scrap all of your lovely photos from this month.

AND if you play along with us, there is a bonus drawing for ANOTHER February kit! Who doesn't love TWO chances to win??

Before you leave, I would like to show you a few other of my creations using the wonderful February kit.





This fun little project was so easy & fun to make. I got the frames in the dollar bin at Target. I used my Cricut to cut out many different hearts using the scraps from the kit. I used 4 hearts to create each 3D heart for the picture. I folded them in half & glued them all together, adhered them to the paper, put back in the frame, & voila! Simple & easy heart picture.


And there is just one more thing that I would like to share with you before you get hopping along. I created these Valentine's for my daughters class. I took a picture of her standing outside with her hand up and then uploaded the picture to Photobucket & edited it using the "stickers" & "text" features. I then had them printed at Target. When I got them home, I punched holes with my crop-a-dile & inserted lollipops, & it looks like Audra is handing her friends the treat.

What do you think??

If you leave me a comment & follow my blog, you will be entered to win a small RAK, by random draw, from me! I hope to see many of your beautiful designs with the sketch, & see you on the message board!

Here is your next stop. Tiffany is anxiously awaiting you!
