February Layouts... kindof

I'm baaaaack!

Wow! Between me getting sick, the baby getting sick, and our downstairs getting flooded, I just don't seem to have the energy to blog ;)

Here are the layouts my scrapbook group would have made this month but are now making in March after things have (hopefully) dried out:

First up is the Elemental Paper Packet. I LOVE the colors! We also used the Decor Journaling Spots since they match perfectly. The white will be covered up with 4x6 photos. No cutting or matting required!

The flowers are from a very discontinued (years ago...) stamp set that happened to look great with the paper. 

Quick note: if you have a cursive alphabet stamp set and want it to actually look like flowing cursive, just stamp the letters individually and overlap a bit.

Next up is the Typeset Paper Packet. I was super excited for this one because it is covered in letters and my daughter just placed 3rd in the school spelling bee! We used the Milepost Shapes, which are glorified corrugated cardboard shapes all pre-cut for you, and some black hemp.

The shapes are all messy-swiped with black ink and then sponged with Cocoa ink. The black and Juniper cardstocks are sanded for some texture.

I left the pennants blank so my group can add whatever "title" that works for them, as long as it is 5 letters long!

Thanks for looking! Hopefully I will not be gone so long this time...
