Catch up!

Yikes! I know I said it before, but man time is flying by me these days. I really need to get it together... and soon.

So today I am going to do a little catch up. I haven't posted my class layouts in... well... I think it has been three months. I am SO sorry girls!

Here are the layouts from January. I would start with December, but I don't have photos of those layouts yet, and it is dark outside. I will try to get them up tomorrow.

This is the first one from January. I used Maya Road Mist in Sunflower with some die cut stars to create the background. I really like this shade of yellow, very bright and cheery. All papers are American Crafts, the Junior line. I originally wanted to do a sports page with these papers, but I just loved the brightness of them. It ended up screaming "Birthday" to me. By the way, this is Matteo on his second birthday.

This is a close up of the stars and the title. You can see the stars that I used were just simple die cuts from Quickutz nesting shapes. Easy Peazy.


This next one turned out really well. I used Fancy Pants for the entire layout. I added some felt die cuts, the kind that you find at your local scrapbook store in their die cut systems. It cut through the felt better than my home die cut machine.

For the title, I used Doodlebug flocked paper. It was white to start off, but the flocked design was really difficult to see, so I inked it very lightly. This made the design pop right of the paper. I love the effect.
Here is a close up of the felt snowflakes. I didn't use any adhesive to adhere them. I simply stitched them in place where I wanted them.

These next two layouts are from February's class. This first one consists of two new lines from Three Bugs in a Rug. They were both pretty "themed" lines, so I flipped them over and used the "B" sides. In the end, they went together pretty well. I haven't had a moment to get the photo's in them yet, but soon.... I hope. :)

Here is a close up of these cute pins from Heidi Grace. They are old pins, but still really cute.

This Journaling tag is Jenni Bowlin. They are some of my favorite journaling tags ever. My stash of these is running low. I may need to make a new order at Two Peas soon.

This is the last one from February. It is clearly a Valentines Day layout. I used two different lines to make this layout, Fancy Pants and Making Memories. It is a simple layout, but I think it will be really cute when I get Matteo's Valentines Day photo's in it. I always get him a cute little Valentines Day shirt to wear on Valentines. This year, I got a steal on this one... only $3.00! Gotta love it!
Here is a close up of some of the stitching.
Okay, now I need to find December's layouts and get those photographed. Then I will be caught up. Well, I have some layouts for Green Tangerines kit club that I need to get up too... but that is another post. So, for now, have a great night. Thanks for stopping by.
