February Stamp of the Month Continued

Okay so last week I shared a home decor item using the stamp of the month for February and today I am sharing a two page layout using the same stamp set. And here it is:

And a close up of page 1:

And of page 2:

Here is a close up of the journaling spot, where I used a sentiment stamp from this month's Stamp of the Month:

And how close up of the hearts on page 2:

So to make this layout I used the following:
Juniper Cardstock
Cocoa cardstock
Polka dot paper from the Perfect Day Level 2 paper pack (which is $5 on my website right now and While Supplies Last so HURRY and get yours before they are gone!)
Cocoa Stamp pad
Tulip Stamp Pad
Juniper Stamp Pad
A Game stamp set for the little hearts
Love Language stamp set (you can use the Word Puzzle Soul Mates)
Chocolate Alphabet Stamp set
Sofia Workshop on the Go stamp set (for the flourishes on the journaling spot)
Magic for the layout

I hope you are loving this stamp set as much as I am! It really is easy to use to make your own background papers. All I did was stamp the image in a line. I made sure to go off the edges (patterned paper does that). To order yours today you can go to my website and while your there don't forget to check out the While Supplies Last section for some AMAZING deals, like the ribbon organizer for $5 (YUP $5!!!)

Valentine Re-Vamp

So I decided to join my friend Wendy in a Valentine re-vamp party. This is where Wendy sent everyone who signed up a questionare and we all filled it out. Then Wendy randomly assigned people partners. Next step, make something Valentine related for our new friend. Well my new friend, Lasca (love the name!), said that she loves brown and pink for Valentine's day. I thought back to two years ago when Close to My Heart had this really pretty brown and pink themed Valentine paper. I had a few scraps left and remembered this awesome project a fellow consultant did. So here it is a Valentine re-vamped!

The sad part for all of you is that the paper is retired and no longer sold, but you can still do the project using cardstock and some patterned paper. Also I had a friend cut out the letters and the hearts with their cricut and I forgot to ask the font and such, so sorry! If you have questions on how to do this project let me know, I would love to do a tutorial if there is enough people who want to know how to make one!

I also decided to send a few handmade valentines using the Sweetheart paper pack, a pattern from CTMH's how-to book, Wishes, the new stamp set A Game and a few stamps borrowed from December's stamp of the month and of course the spray pen. Here it is:

I hope you all enjoy!

February Stamp of the Month

Happy February everyone! If you haven't checked out the NEW Idea Book just go to my website using the button on the right. There are a ton of new and fun things! I have been having a blast with it thus far and am so excited to keep creating with such wonderful products!

One of my favorite stamp sets is the February Stamp of the Month. It is wonderful for backgrounds when you need an elegant feel. I have done a few projects with it and thought that I would share them with you. Today I will share my new bathroom decorations.

Here is the center piece of my wall art (sorry you have to turn your head to make it right side up!). I used a 12x12 petal cardstock to make the paper rose. I used a White Daisy cardstock, black stamp pad and the February stamp of the month to create the background. For the butterflies I used a Juniper stamp pad and January's stamp of the month.

I also added a little sparkle to the butterflies with a bonding glue pen and some prisma glitter.

My walls are pretty bare and I knew that they needed a little something more, so I decided to use some blank canvas I had laying around. I used two 8x10. I painted them white and then mixed some white paint, Create-a-shade Pearl paint and some Juniper re-inker (so that the butterflies matched the ones I stamped earlier) and a stencil from Walmart.

I am really excited about how these all turned out!
