KnK February Kit Creations!

I came home from work on Friday and found out that my February kit from Kit 'n' Kaboodles had arrived! This is the one that I designed, so I was dying to see it in person. These papers are even more beautiful in real life than they look online! The colors are so rich. I dug into my kit last night and came up with these two pages:

Family of 4:
Pretty Ponytails:On this page, I painted a section of the grunge paper with Smooch ink which is in the add on kit. Once that dried, I stamped it with the Stampendous stamp included in the add on kit as well. Then I cut out the heart shape and tied one of the 7gypsies mini keys to the chain and draped it over the heart. I love the shimmer of the Smooch ink and the look of it on the grunge paper! I'll be back soon with more projects using this kit!

January kits at Back Porch Memories

Have you seen the January kits at Back Porch Memories? The Solo kit features papers from Sassafras Lass' Monstrosity line. The Medley kit includes Pink Paislee Cupid, Bella Blvd. Honey I'm Home, and Sassafras Lass Amplify papers. I love both kits! And lucky for me, I got both of them this month! I did the member layouts based on Tami's awesome sketches. You have to be a kit subscriber to see the sketches and layouts I created, but I can give you a little sneak peek if you are interested.Be sure and check out the gorgeous creations by the rest of the design team right here.

A couple more KnK January kit creations

Here is another layout and a card with a coordinating envelope that I created with the January kit from Kit 'n' Kaboodles. I have to admit that this kit was a little intimidating to me at first, with its bright, bold colors and large patterns, but I ended up loving it and everything that I made with it, and I loved the challenge of scrapping a little bit outside of my comfort zone.
Be sure and visit us over at KnK and check out what the rest of the design team created with this beautiful kit! And the reveal of the February kit is just in a few days, and you don't want to miss it!

My favorites from 2009

Happy New Year! I've seen a few other bloggers do this, and I thought it would be fun to look back at the pages I created in the last year and post some of my favorites. So, here is 2009, a year in review, from a scrappy perspective:
It's been such a fun year doing design team work for Back Porch Memories, Kit 'n' Kaboodles, and Creative Scrappers, and I truly cherish all of the friendships I've made along the way. I love having a hobby that is so full of caring and supportive people! I hope that I've been able to inspire a few people along the way. Let's hope for more of the same in 2010!
