Good Evening! So at a crop in February my friend Joan won a free crop hosted at a local scrapping store called Scrap-a-doodle-doo in Ramsey, NJ (super awesome store!), then at another crop in March Joan won it again! So we had our first of 2 free crops at the store this past Friday night. We had a great time, and I even picked up some new Tattered Angels goodies! I was able to work on my latest project as well.
While blog browsing last week I found the awesome Canadian online scrapbook magazine called Scrapbooks and Cards Today. The website hosts a challenge called "Project 12," where the basic idea is to create a layout for each month of the year like a 'highlight' of the month. What really had me hooked was the awesome sketches by Becky Fleck that you can choose to use each month (and you know I'm a sketch kinda gal!). So Friday night I finished January:
I used my Studio Calico February kit, plus some extra Basic Grey Nook and Pantry papers.
Next up is February. I used my Noel Mignon February "Object of My Affection" kit featuring these gorgeous My Mind's Eye papers. I added a lot of machine stitching around the outside of the patterned papers in a free-hand swirly stitch. I cut the title "February" from the Cricut using the "Designer's Calendar" cartridge from glitter paper.
Last up is March, which uses paper from Basic Grey's "Origins" and Little Yellow Bicycle's "Lucky Me" line. Although March wasn't necessarily lucky for me, it was still a month FULL of pictures! I added machine stitching, and even pleated and stitched the yellow ribbon running across the lo.
I'm loving this project! April's sketch is up on the blog and I have plenty of Spring Break photos to use for my lo. I may even have to make 2 since I took around 1000 photos over Spring Break week! It's going to be hard to narrow that down. Hope you have a lovely week!
