The last day of a long, cold January! But we have plenty to warm your heart today with a most amazing kit for the 12 Kits of Occasions from our hostess Sharron Gregory! We are celebrating Valentine's Day and we received the most adorable kit. It was just jam-packed with teeny cellophane bags of die cuts and embellishments in the most unique Valentine colors of pink, peach, strawberry, tan, and white. The Teresa Collins "You Are My Happy" patterned papers were adorable, and there were little die cuts and stamped images to match each sheet! Aaaand mini elephants....
I used them on my first project with some washi tape and this adorable sentiment. Sharron sent us two panels of die cut hearts and I used the negative piece as a stencil since I participated in the class all about them last weekend with Online Card Classes. (I still haven't even had a chance to look at Day 4 :)!
I couldn't put the elephants away yet...
More sweet die cuts. This time some love birds and a teeny, leafy branch. The sentiment is from Waltzingmouse Stamps Sweethearts set. The tan paper has a very subtle, texture that reminded me of woodgrain.
Another fave in the kit box was this typewriter image and some coordinating sentiments.
I chose this one and decorated it with mini hearts. I sliced the typewriter top at the "paper feed" part so I could make it look like this note was rolling out, hot of the presses ;)...
And one more try with white embossing paste. I used a stencil from Hero Arts and lots of the glorious sequins that Sharron sent.
We learned a trick in class from Debby Hughes to pour glitter over the embossing paste after you remove the stencil and the paste is wet. So shimmery! Love the sweet die cut "hello".
I have no doubt that I will be using Sharron's kit again this weekend! There is so much good stuff left and two weeks until Valentine's Day!!
