Friendzy Friday

It's Friendzy Friday at Two Scrapbook Friends and it is my turn to post. In honour of the kick off to Scrapfest weekend at Two friends this weekend, I thought I would show you something I made using a product I bought at the very first Scrapfest I ever attended 4 years ago.
So I came up with this cute little Easter bunny made from this fun fiber. The instructions are simple, as you can see by the pictures above. You simply need the fiber, a stamp, ink, parchment paper and an iron.

Ink your stamp with a colour that is similar to the fiber. Then place a generous amount of fiber over the stamp, place the parchment paper over top and iron on medium setting. Once you see the image show through, you can remove the fiber, and the end result is this little image into the fiber. I then used it to create the Easter card above. It's really fun to work with, and can produce an interesting element to your cards and layouts!

Green and Brown

It was my turn to post the Monday layout challenge on Two Scrapbook Friends
I haven't been scrapping much lately, so Sunday night as I sat up late due to some sick children, I started and finished this layout. It was around midnight when I realized I better get something made. I love these new papers from My Mind's Eye. So my challenge was to create a layout using the colours brown and green, since they are the colours that remind me of the beginning of spring, as the snow melts. Or in my case, since we don't have any snow, just what my yard looks like.

Don't forget to check out the forum at Two Scrapbook Friends for many other daily challenges!

Maya Road kraft envelopes

I was at Two Scrapbook Friends store this week, and among a lot of other things, I picked up these cute Maya Road kraft envelopes. It was my week to post the 'how I used it' on our forum, so I decided to profile these.
The first card I used a small envelope as an embellishment on the card, and it is big enough to hold cash or a gift card, perfect for my teenage daughter's birthday this month!

The second card I used the large envelope, and turned the whole thing into a card by gluing it on kraft cardstock. When you open the scalloped flap, there is the envelope opening where you can tuck another gift card, or something special for the recipient.

Thanks for looking!

Design Team Reveal

March 1st, can you believe it? It means it's time for the design team reveal at Two Scrapbook Friends. Wow this winter really has gone by fast. It helps that it was the easiest winter that I can ever remember. February was a great month, we did a lot together as a family and had a lot of fun. And the pictures in the layouts above reflect that. And you will also notice that since February is the month of love, every one of my layouts and cards has that theme in common.
Check out the gallery at Two Friends to see what my other talented co design team members did!
