By The Numbers

Written by Nathalie Kalbach. Posted in Cards, Cocoa Daisy, Scrapbooking Layouts

is the name of the February 2012 Cocoa Daisy Kit and it was fun playing with it. I do have to say that I really love working with those kits – it is so much fun how well the kits are assembled and yet there is such a versatility on what you can do with all the products, which reflects pretty well in the Design Team. This is the first month that the Design Teams are posting two times :) The National does it when the kit comes out and midmonth now we Internationals post our projects. And it is time for us now :)

It was a lot of fun at CHA and one of the funniest moments came up when Birgit, Ronda and I saw our girl …well let’s say our “Dirty Girl” doing her amazing Make’N Takes for Crafter’s Workshop. We screamed like Groupies – ahem ;)

The Journaling reads: There is not doubt about it that Birgit, Ronda and I are huge fans of Julie’s work and personality – we had to cheerlead at her awesome Make’nTakes at the Crafter’s Workshop.

I used the white Cardstock in the kit and mixed 3 different colors of Acrylic Paint together to create the background. On top I used the awesome Chevron Stamp – so awesome and of course Chevron Pattern is all over right now. I then used the Sassafras Tailored Deck numbers in the main kit and added it to create my own patterned paper.

Fun Day

As some of you read already this January my husband and I took a mini vacation before CHA and headed out to the Death Valley National Park – so so so beautiful. Breathtaking landscape. And the sand dunes- so amazing.

I used a Crafter’s Workshop Template with some Artist Spackle by Eco Green Crafts on the background. I cute out the My Minds Eye Flowers and used the Stacked Numbers Stamp to the Packaging Paper of the Sassafrass Tailored Deck numbers. Then I used an Eco Green Crafts Ink pad over it to repeat the background paper color.

*1 2 3 Relax*

The first day of our vacation in San Francisco we just did NOTHING than hanging around with friends, drinking coffee and stroll around- It was HEAVEN. We enjoyed it so much.

I used the MME Paper of the kit and cut out the Patchwork flowers in pairs of two so they could resemble a heart. I dropped some ink on the paper, let it run and added marker dots and Signo White Pen Dots to it.

LOVE Card

 

A little cheerful Valentine’s Card. I created the heart with aluminium foil run it through a texture folder in my Die Cut Machine, Painted it with gesso and then used paint on top of it. I stamped the Birds on a Wire Stamp on the Library Card in the Kit and then cut it out in a banner like form. Love the stamp!!!

    I am a total Julie fan too! My favorite winter activity is cross country skiing — which I haven’t done this year because we haven’t had enough snow — but I’m not complaining about that AT ALL!
