7 Dots Studio Feb challenge/ More Than Words Feb mini challenge

I was inspired to play along with the  
7 Dots Studio Feb/Mar challenge - 
'Love Is In The Air"

 I was also inspired to make a card by the More Than Words 
Mini Challenge 'LOVE".

Here is my card-

I used a piece of 7 Dots Studio Cotton Candy Dreams 'Pucker Up' 
paper for my project. 
I die cut it into different sized tags with a Tim Holtz tag die. 
 I also used some Cotton Candy Dreams stickers.

I then stencilled each tag with Colour Blast colour pastes. 
I also heat embossed some tags with 
Colour Blast Colour Embossing Powders for some extra shimmer and texture.

I added some sentiments using stamps from  
Kellie Stamps and Heidi Swapp.

Some close ups-

Dusty Attic February challenge

I really loved the pastel tones and the retro theme to this month's challenge at Dusty Attic-

I was inspired to make a cover for my family photo album.


I've used the 'Family Matters' quote from the Dusty Attic Mini Captions #7 set, which I heat embossed with Colour Blast 'Rose Petal' Colour Embossing Powder. I also used Dusty Attic Mini Viewfinders. 

I added lots of resin flowers from D'Lish Scraps and a butterfly heart from Charm's Creations.

Creative Kit Club February kit- DT share

This month's kit at Creative Kit Club showcases the gorgeous
Kaisercraft 'Hanami Garden' collection.

         Here's a closer look at my DT projects with this kit.

Step-by-step instructions can be found in the kit magazine.

My first layout 

I fussy cut the fans then folded them to make them dimensional.

Then I added some Collectables and embellishments.

My second layout uses the rice paper and is more embellishment based.

The next two are my Inspiration layouts.

I have to admit this one might just be one of my favourites that I've ever made!

And I had a chance to make a 'girly' page.

You can find details of the kit here. The kits can sell out quickly, so make sure to subscribe so you don't miss out. And you get a 10% discount if you subscribe for 6 months.

Shop And Crop Scrapbooking February challenge

This month's challenge at Shop And Crop Scrapbooking 
is a Tic-Tac-Toe challenge.

I chose the right hand column - 
Wood Veneer+Cardstock+Stencils

And here is what I came up with-

I cut my white cardstock down to be assymetrical. For my background I have used sprays, then dripped on some acrylic paint mixed with string gel medium to create splatters.  
Next I added some Colour Blast colour paste 
through a stencil.

I've used some wood veneer words from Corbett Creations, as well as some embellishments from 
Charm's Creations and Flutterby Designs.
