March SNS DT Projects

Wow, I am done my March SNS DT projects early, so I think I will go ahead and post them now! I had the delicious SNS His & Hers kit to work with.
I haven't done a 2 page layout in a while, but here it is. DH and DD having a tea party in the park LOL! I used the MME Penny Lane Tiny Dancer Ballet line paper and die cuts for it.

Right side:
4 cards I made out of the Bo Bunny Alissa collection. I just love this line! You get so many sheets of paper and the colours are the sweetest! A yummy ice cream layout from our many visits to DQ last summer. I thought the little porcupine dreaming of popsicles was perfect :)And my favourite of all! I saw this cute little bird cage votive candle holder and I had to buy it! I embellished it with the ribbon from the kit and some flowers. I put some grassy stuff in the candle holder for a nest. Then I covered a Maya Road branch in Ranger crackle paint and decorated a Maya Road bird with paper, Kaiser pearls and ric rac from the kit for a tail.

What a super fun kit this was to work with. I just love the pretty colours and I still have lots left to enjoy!

SavvynSassy February Ribbon Kit Creations

The SavvynSassy February kit I got to design with was the Zany Zinnia February - Notorious Kit. I just loved the red and black combo, so I did 3 layouts with it! All the different textures are so rich and beautiful, great for so many things!
Still working on using up some old stash, I made these 2 cards with old Pebbles Inc. lines.
Then I used 2 rectangles of scalloped Bazzill to make these 2 square cards.

February Art Freckles Ticket to Whoo-Ville Kit Creations

What fun I had this month working with the Art Freckles "Ticket to Whoo-Ville" kit!

You're a Hoot Brielle Mini Owl Album

I used the Maya Road owl coaster album that came with the kit, covered it in papers from the kit and added stamps, Thickers, Prima studs, Chatterbox felt and Chatterbox chipboard from the store. I also tied ribbon from the SavvynSassy January Cocoa Cream ribbon kit around the binder ring.

Sweet Little Molly
Whoo Loves You?closeup:
To make the owl I took the chipboard cover from the owl mini album, inked it up, glued on pieces of the sequin trim for feathers, layered painted circles for eyes, coloured in the rest with markers and added a flower and brad to the hole at the top.

O Train
I just loved all the tickets that came with the kit, so I used a bunch for this train layout.
