January Monthly Pack Layouts

Hi Everyone, today we are sharing some more layouts from the January My Minds Eye Pack.  The girls have all been busy playing with their goodies, so let's check out what they've done!
Festive by 'Zan Boyle

'Zan has used her Monthly Pack for a Christmas layout, with plenty of "festivities" in the photos!  The black lace trim has been used to create an outer flower beneath the black crocheted flower, and this has been topped with a paper rose - light inked to blend in.
An embossing folder has been used for added texture, and this has been lightly inked for more definitionSome added bling, a pop up punched flower topped with a paper rose and a couple of strips of doublesided ribbon finish it off.  Well done 'Zan.
Easter Funfair by Claire Apostoloff (CT)
"Out for Publication"
Claire has used her Monthly Pack to celebrate the Easter Show, and it's come up a treat!  
"I was lucky enough to have the word 'fairground' on the dictionary paper, and used a scrap of red to bring it out so that it showed up better."

A decorative MS border punch was used to break up the ticket layer, which has been cut unevenly at the bottom and layered onto black to tie in all the colours.

Our little fellow here has been touched up with Copic Markers, and Claire has journalled her story on this.

The dictionary paper cutouts make a great background once mounted on black cardstock and highlighted with a smattering of paint.  Claire has also "snuck" a bit of ephemera on there from the Easter Show.
Dream by Deb Pulford (CT)
Deb has brought a bit of white space into this layout of Sameul.  It's a nice contrast to the Kraft and works in so well with her design.  All the edges are distressed and inked with Pinecone.
The dictionary flower has been inked with Pinecone to add a bit of grungy-ness, and the bunting also has been edged with the Pinecone.  Walnut Stain was added to the Rosette for colour..
The MS Modern Garland Edge Punch has been used to create the Kraft border beneath the title.  The dictionary circles, as well as the dictionary block behind the title, are also inked with Pinecone. 
Happy Birthday card by Claire Aposotoloff (CT)
Claire used a Martha Stewart punch for a border, then sprayed an embossing folder with some red Glimmer Mist and ran it through the embossing machine. It was then matted on black to make it pop.  A red paper rose centres the black crocheted flower, and a simple "Happy Birthday" stamp completes the card.
The butterflies were punched into the black cardstock then overlayed onto the dictionary paper.  The lace trim was layered beneath this, then layered again onto a MS border punched strip, as described above.
 Butterfly Card by Claire Aposotoloff (CT)
This is the same card as above, and Claire has used another punched and embossed border strip, decorated with a gorgeous little butterfly punch.  This card without the sentiment stamp becomes a very versatile card.
For You card by Deb Pulford (CT) 
Deb used her scraps to put her card together.  Kindy GLitz was used on the black flowers for sparkle, the the MS border punch to edge the top layer.  A strip of the doublesided ribbon separates the papers.
Thanks for sharing your wonderful creations girls, we are seeing some great ideas with the January Pack.

Gorgeous layout Zan - love the inking, esp the colour. Love the black matting Claire, on your layout. It certainly adds the wow factor to your gorgeous layout, and your card too, is simply divine.
