February Monthly Pack

Hi Everyone, and welcome to February's Monthly Pack.  This month's pack is Kissing Booth from BasicGrey.  A bit of a mix this month, we have pinks and reds, birds,  wispy flowers and bold flowers as well.  I'm betting we're going to get a few different takes on this one!
Kissing Booth Monthly Pack by BasicGrey
In the main pack we have ribbed cardstock in Black and White, 5 x DSPPs, a 12x12 Alpha sticker sheet, a patch of lovely lace, 3 cute buttons, some matching bling, red/pink velvet ribbon and cream twill.  Lots of goodness there!
Kissing Booth Booster Pack by BasicGrey
In the Booster we have an 12x12 element sticker sheet with all sorts of bits and pieces to compliment your pack, 2 x DSPPs, a bit of pink gimp and a chocolate brown piece of pom pom bobble and a 6x12 black glitter cardstock, just for a bit more bling!  It all ties in nicely, and as usual there is plenty to play with!

Our first layout this month is from Claire, who features her very shy hubby..........  
Not Quite a SuperModel by Claire Apostoloff (CT)
 Love the B&W photo sequence in this one, and the slight curling of the hearts.
This is a great way to use a frame to highlighting your favorite photo in a sequence or theme.
Claire has also used a lit bit of white Glimmer Mist on the background, and traced the letters onto the black glitter cardstock then cut around them leaving a fine edge, then inking the edges white.  Well done Claire.
Remember by Deb Pulford (CT)
"We don't Remember days, we remember moments" is the full title of Deb's layout featuring Kloe.  She has kept it simple to keep the focus on the photo, which has been layered up, using the lace behind for a bit more softness.  Some fussy cutting and rolling is just enough to balance out.  Well done Deb. 
Fun by Anita Bownds (CT)
"We Love to Have Fun" is the full title of Anita's layout, and it certainly looks it!  Lots of white space with a lot of fun & brightness drawing your eye into the photos.  Pink paint was used to put splats into the background, adding a hint of colour.  A bit of fussy cutting and the doily border was formed, along with the cutout of the gorgeous pink flower.
Anita made a little bow with the ribbon, doodled around the patterned strips, hearts and flower.  A heart sticker, lace and brown trim were used to make the heart flower, along with the leaves.
Anita has used her Swiss Dots folder to Emboss the letters "XOXO" that were cut from the patterned paper, then used a Copic Multiliner to outline each one.  The Fiskars Apron Lace border punch was used to put a decorative edge on the pink paper, breaking up the colours.  Beautiful work Anita.
Love Birds by Sally Clark (CT)
I'm sensing a little nervousness amongst the Blind CropVille ladies as they look at this tree, but never fear ladies - if it's here it won't be there!! ....then again.....  Sally never ceases to amaze me with her layouts, turning the simplest of designs into something stunning. Using the back of one of the patterned papers she has diligently drawn and fussy cut the leaf clusters, using a Copic Multiliner inside the edge of each one.
Gorgeous little tufts of grass have been created in the same way, with a Fiskars Border Punch & a touch of brown ink to decorate the edges.  Foam mounting tape on the grasses, trunk and leaves add real dimension.  The brown pom pom trim bordering two sides of the photo also add dimension, drawing the eye in.
Fussy cutting the little birds on the tree top, adding Dimensional Magic to give them and the pink hearts a bit more shine, then an odd dot of red bling is just about all you need to do.  The tree top has really come up beautifully Sally.

If you haven't picked up your Monthly Subscription yet, it's ready now.  There will only be a limited number of extra packs and boosters available at Scrapville, so be sure to guarantee yours by signing up!

We'll have plenty more to share from the girls shortly.
