February 2012 SPS Blog Hop!

February Blog Hop - Saturday the 4th
Welcome to Shop Pumpkin Spice February blog hop!
If you've arrived here from Saundra's blog, then you're on the right track! If not, start at the Shop Pumpkin Spice blog to make sure you haven't missed a single inspiring creation.

Glad to see you stopping by for another Shop Pumpkin Spice blog hop!  We've all created some love-themed projects to share with you this month, but before I get to my project, take a look below at the kits that Denine is releasing this month!  Aren't they just GORGEOUS?!  I love the shabby chic feel that they have and this month, you have two choices for kits: one geared towards scrapbookers and one towards cardmakers.  Make sure you head over to the store to grab yours because I'm sure that they'll sell out pretty quickly!

Now, on to my projects for this month's hop!  I've used supplies from the Echo Park Yours Truly collection collection and also some papers from the MME Love Me 6x6 paper pad which is only available through the January 2012 Fun Love kit

I created a heart box (SVG can be found here) that opens up so that you can fill it with goodies.  Sadly, I didn't have any goodies to put inside hence the lack of a picture of the opened box, lol.  The papers used to create the box are from the MME Love Me 6x6 paper pad (found in the kit here) and the Echo Park Yours Truly Love Notes 12x12 paper.  The stickers are from the Echo Park Yours Truly Elements Stickers.  The box cut using my KNK ZING (love the freedom of this machine, you can cut anything you want and aren't limited by cartridges) and glued together using my trusty ATG gun and tape.

The matching card was created using the Echo Park Yours Truly Love Notes 12x12 paper and Yours Truly 6x6 Paper Pad, which I don't see available at the store at the moment, but make sure to check back soon.  The stickers are again from the Yours Truly Elements Stickers and the center piece is from the Yours Truly Journaling Cards.  The card was finished off with lace trim, rhinestones, and dotted with Viva Decor Pear Pen in Silver.  As always, I used ATG Tape for sticking together the papers and Beacon 3-in-1 Advanced Craft Glue for the other elements.

Thanks for stopping by today!  Please head on over to Lezlye's blog to continue with the hop.
