Now for a quick intro:
My name is Barb Prendergast, and I started scrapping six years ago when my husband gave me my first digital camera and I found the scrap supply aisle at Walmart. My favorite subjects are my family which includes my husband, four adult children (three of them married) and six beautiful grandkids. I'm a former newspaper reporter/editor and public relations manager; currently I substitute teach part-time in area schools.
The February kit is so versatile! Here are my creations using the kit (with enough left over for a couple more layouts and some cards)
I used my Cricut, Spellbinders Excalibur and an EK Success border punch to create a few accents, as well as some little buttons and rhinestones from my stash.
I cut into the patterned paper and slipped my photo mat underneath the heart and flourish motif; the floral accents were fussy cut from one of the other patterned papers in the kit. The journaling spot was cut with the Cricut and the title with Cuttlebug dies.
I used a few buttons and flowers from my stash and die cut the circles and journaling spot with Spellbinders dies; also used some puffy paint to connect the buttons and again, I cut into the papers to slip my photos under the owl. I used a sketch from Nuts About Sketches as inspiration.
The borders from My Little Yellow Bicycle are so much fun to use! I topped one here with a strip of that cute birdie-printed paper and the pom pom trim. The buttons, tiny alpha and pink flower were from my stash; I used the patterned papers in the kit and various dies to cut the little blue flower, the bird and journaling spot. Here's a close up of the bottom cluster:
The sketch is from My Sketch World.
I punched out circles from the paper and used some rick rack to make little flowers for this layout. The felt fish were cut with a Cuttlebug die, and I had fun with a border punch too. This is another Nuts About Sketches sketch.
I used the other MLYB border here, along with a new Grands label die from Spellbinders, that bird die again, and some flowers, bling, alphas and rub ons from my stash. I also stamped a pattern on the bottom of my white cardstock.
