More from the February Monthly Pack

Hi Everyone,
well here are some more projects created using the February Monthly Pack.  The girls have been busy putting these together, and the more I see what comes out of this pack the more I love it!!
First up:
I "Love" U by Sally Clark (CT)
Sally has used the patterned papers from the Crush range to make an off the page frame.  You will note lots of distressing along the edges, and some fussy cutting on the circles which were then layered and dotted with a bit of bling. 
 The scripted paper was cut in strips to tie the words in, and the Thickers were altered with a "J" and a "U" to make the "heart".  This was then nicely mounted up and outlined with a white marker, then mounted onto the frame like a decorative corner.
 The Tulle looks so nice pulled into a bow and secured with some floral bling, whilst the rest of the tulle is dotted with dollops of Kindy Glitz.  A very appropriate frame for such a kissy kissy photo!
Sewn Together with Love by Sally Clark (CT)
Sally's next creation has required much hand stitching, and possibly lots of patience!  The patchwork centre has been pieced together from squares and strips of patterned papers, alternately outlined in more stitching or over-stitched in the centre with a heart.  This has been mounted up onto a cardstock square, with the family snap then mounted up and placed on front.
The words, dancing hearts and stitch lines have been traced onto the red cardstock, then stitched (and/or outlined with a white gel pen). 
The cardstock edges have been stamped in white ink with a decorative design.
How good does this layout look?  Very creative indeed Sal, and another great take on this fantastic range from BoBunny.  But lets not stop here....

(That's) Amore by Sam Epps (Guest CT)
Sam has an annual tradition of decorating her home calendar, which will sit proudly on the fridge and is pleasing to look at!  This year Sam has taken advantage of the Monthly Pack by BoBunny to decorate the front page, using techniques such as distressing, tearing, inking, stitching and layering.
 This is a closer look at the whole calendar, yet to be filled with Crop Days!!
The above image shows Sam's detailed hand stitching of the hearts, and the 3D effect of mounting up the cutout, distressed and inked hearts.  The glitter alphas have also been inked to blend in with the colour theme.

Free Spirit by Sam Epps (Guest CT)
I am loving those handmade flowers and the colour combination, great work Sam.  A very clean layout with lots of "white space" and dimension. And aren't those little eyes just looking at you looking at her?!
This image gives us a bit more detail on the hand stitching and those lovely shaped flowers.  The Tulle flower has been shaped then adhered onto the cardstock, then on with a spot of bling.  The butterflies were punched from double sided adhesive then covered with glitter and shaped to sit up.

So as you can see there is plenty of variety in this pack, lots of interesting ways to mix your colours and/or patterns, and some beautiful work put up by the CT girls.  We are all looking forward to seeing what you can do with it as well.
