February KnK kit reveal, first installment

I know that I mentioned before how much I love this kit, and I'm so excited to finally be able to share a few of the things I've created with it. I have had so much fun cutting out butterflies and playing with these gorgeous ribbons. Webster's Pages and Graphic 45 are two of my favorite manufacturers right now, and I was ecstatic to see the two of them combined in this kit. Here are a few of my creations.
I got the idea for the box from my friend, Kimberly Crawford. She is seriously talented, and if you haven't checked out her blog, you really should! I used my Cuttlebug and the Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels 1 dies to cut and emboss the top and bottom of the box.

I have a few other things to share with you using this kit, but I'll save them for a little later. I will tell you that I just couldn't stop creating with this kit and have used it up entirely. If you don't have this kit, click here and grab one before they sell out!

Also, I wanted to remind you to be sure and join us tonight at 9pm EST at Creative Scrappers for the One Hour Layout Contest! These are always so much fun! Kristine will post a sketch for you at 9pm, and you have one hour to complete your page and then 15 minutes to upload it into the gallery. You need one 5x7 photo for this page. Click here for more details. Hope to see you there!

Creative Scrappers Sketch #35

This week's sketch at Creative Scrappers is by Allison Cope. It is a fun circle sketch, and I loved doing this one! Click here to see what the rest of the Design Team created. For my page, I used Crate Paper Mia papers, BasicGrey rub ons, Bazzill flowers, and KI Memories alphabet soup.

February Kit Reveal at Kit 'n' Kaboodles

Isn't it gorgeous?? I am so loving this kit, and I have been having so much fun playing with it. Included in this kit are papers from Webster's Pages, Graphic 45, and Creative Imaginations, lollipop flowers from Prima, Prima Say it in Crystals, and some beautiful May Arts ribbons.

I can't post any of my creations until the 26th, but I'll give you a little sneak peek of what I've been working on.
I've also been playing with my new toy - the Dymo Caption Maker. I seriously love this thing. If you like using journaling strips, this tool is a must have. It comes with three font wheels - upper case, lower case, and script. Just pop them in and out. You can also get the embossing tape in tons of colors. FYI, I got mine at for $18.95 with free shipping!

Happy New Year!

2008 has come and gone, and 2009 is finally here! I hope this year brings my dear family and friends nothing but good health and happiness. I have a couple more projects to share with you using the January kit from Kit 'n' Kaboodles. This has been such a fun kit to work with. Here is my layout titled "She".

I used one of the 6x6 black chipboard pieces to create this wall hanging. The quote is from Albert Einstein and reads, "Imagination is more important than knowledge."

Hope you are all having a wonderful holiday!
