More Feb LOs from Burlap and Buttercups

Here are 3 more LOs using the gorgeous Feb kit from Burlap and Buttercups.

This 1st LO uses pictures with the Taal Volcano -- an active volcano within a volcano - behind us.  I used my Silhouette Cameo to die-cut the lattice background from the car stock included with the kit.

This next LO is of Bianca with her favorite Minnie Mouse in HK Disneyland last year.  I went a little overboard using my Silhouette Cameo here as I used it to cut the around-the-page border, the pink cloud mat and the scalloped light blue paper.

A Feb kit won't be complete without a "Love" LO so here's me and hubby on our 12 anniversary, with photos taken by my son, Luis, which explains the blurred photo on the left.  I used my Cameo to die-cut the hearts background and the "yellow postage stamp border".

Burlap & Buttercups Feb Challenge

It's my turn to host this week's challenge at Burlap and Buttercups and my challenge to you is to layer 3 or more border punched strips in your LO.  It's so easy, the hardest part is deciding which punch to use!

I love the colors of the Feb kit, mixing pinks, blues and yellows -- so much fun to play with!


On a side-note, the die-cut flower was made using my Silhouette Cameo...and you will see more projects from me using this amazing machine in the coming days!!!

Valentine Card

Here's a simple Valentine card I made using a flower and leaves from Manor House Creations. I also got to use my WRMK Sew Easy stitch cool, when I remember to use it:) This bird cage transparency from Hambly is one of my best ever purchases, it never fail to add just the right touch of romance to a page.

Materials: Cardstock - DCWV; Patterned papers - American Crafts; Transparency Hambly; Flower and leaves - Manor House Creations: Twine - The Twinery; Ink - Clearsnap; Stamp - Technique Tuesday; Thread - misc

There's still plenty of time to make your own Valentine cards...
