ES Feb Challenge

Wow, I can believe that its the last day of February...time is just flying by!

So it's the 28th & that means Everything Scrapp'n Design Team Blog Hop & monthly challenge. Michelle challenged us to use a holiday themed paper in an everyday way. The design team will be showing off Pink Paislee Cupid.

I found this green frame on clearance for 50cents and just fell in love with the color! The cherry blossoms are heat embossed with 3 layers of clear powder to give them a lacquered look and to make them more durable. The little birdie has been glittered and glazed with glossy accents and then crackled for a broken glass effect. I was trying for the look of a little countryside vignette....with tree, rolling hills and the golden glow of the sun.

My 2nd project this month is a LO with the Graphic 45 line "domestic goddess" I made an altered project with this line last year and wanted to use up some of my scraps. I just started sewing on my projects and really love the finished look that it add to a layout. Its kinda hard to see in the small pic (you can click on it and make it bigger) but, I wanted it to look like the outer layers {papers} are being peeled back to reveal us. I had a lot of fun with the embellies on this one. the Flower on the left was made with layers of fabric and tulle cut into different sized circles and then "squished" into shape and anchored with a few stitches and a button. The flower on the right is a quick fabric yo-yo

Thanks for stopping by :)

ES Valentine's blog hop

Welcome to the last stop in this months ES blog hop! If you have not seen the whole hop, head over to the everythingscrappn blog and start from the beginning.

This month I used the "Cupid" line from Pink Paislee.
This has got to be one of the most versatile Valentine's lines I have ever used. I love the bright colors and the fun prints.

This first project is an altered/home decor item. I found this great frame and easel on sale at a big chain store..... I just had to dress it up.

Just a little gold tulle, some stick pins and a flower cut from the "Hearts Bloom" paper. The sign is from the Cupid punch-outs

I had some fabric scraps laying around that were just beggin to become flowers... this one is a simple yo-yo flowers, misted with a little aqua glimmermist.

This flower took awhile and is fairly thick. Its a rolled fabric flower. I added some ga-ga glitz art institute glitter to the top

Oh, and now for my LO....

fairly simple, an inset heart, a little sewing and lots of handcutting.

Please for give me for the late blond is showing through :) I misunderstood the directions for the early bloghop.

Spread the Love, scrapmuse

When you think of February you think of LOVE! At ScrapMuse we are going to dedicate the month of February to spreading the love. "Spread the Love" will be a month long contest held on the ScrapMuse message board. We are going to spend the first 5 days of February getting everything ready for you. You will have the rest of the month to earn points by spreading the love about Scrapmuse, participating in weekly challenges, joining our Blog Hop, and posting on the message board. Since the contest is all about love.....there will also be random "love" points handed out! You will find a complete list of rules and ways to earn points on February 5th in the "Spread the Love" section of the message board. The grand prize for the scrapper with the most "love" at the end of the month will be a Brand New March 2010 Mega Muse and a July 2009 Mega Muse. We will also select a second place winner from a random drawing who will win a March, 2010 Mini Muse.
