"Love" from Polka Dot Whimsy...

I loved working with the February add-on from Polka Dot Whimsy. I used the whole thing!

I made a layout of the boys with my parents on Kevin's birthday back in November. I liked mixing up the patterns. Loved the combo of red, blue and yellow together. There was a fun mix of embellishments with stickers from Fancy Pants, some felt accents and two alphas fonts from Bella Boulevard.
I used the more muted/pastel paper for a layout of my guys with Tom's mom on her birthday last September. The layered felt flowers from Ephiphany Crafts were a fun addition. I loved that they already had stitching on them. Instead of adding space for journaling, I just journaled around the page.
I used "a little bit of this...a little bit of that..." on this layout with Kevin's Valentine's cards. Felt, buttons, border stickers, trim...it's all on there. I even used the fabric from the kit to roll up into flowers.
My title is made up of a couple of preprinted Fancy Pants journaling cards cut from one of the papers and Bella Boulevard alphas. The kit came with a couple of notecards and envelopes. I had big plans to get creative and incorporate them into my layouts, but I forgot about them. Oops. Instead, I ended up using scraps to accent them. Super, simple little cards ready to go now.
Happy scrappin'!
