New year, new design team projects....

I am very pleased to announce that I am returning to the Two Scrapbook Friends Design team for another term. As it is January 1st it's time for my first reveal. This month each member worked with different collections from Sassafrass.

I really liked the shade of green in these papers which is why it's prominent in all of my creations this month. I added some buttons, ribbon and letter stickers along with an ATC given to me a while ago.

* thanks for the photo Jenny!

Not until I finished all my layouts did I realize that this one has a similar look to the first one! Oh well I guess I was feeling the design!

I stuck with a tight, 3 colour scheme to keep the focus on this sweet photo of Emma and Kate. *thanks for the photo Jessica

The banner was super easy to make using Punky Sprouts canvas triangles inked in blue and some twine. I added the chipboard letters from My Mind's Eye.

This last one is probably my fave this time around. I love this series of photos of Holden playing with a super fuzzy caterpillar we found on a hike.

I was super excited to use my new Sew Easy tool to stitch around the tree. I used the scallop head and ran it around in a tree design then cut out it out. I used a blue Prismacolour pencil to highlight my letter stickers and a black pen around the photos. I snipped a tiny piece of twill Jillibean ribbon for my birdies in the tree and added some of the Sassafrass stickers that came in the kit.

A great thing about Sass papers is that they have a really cool scalloped barcode strip that you can use on your layouts.

I really loved the colours from the 'adored' layout so I decided to repeat them on this card. I pleated and folded up the green paper then used pop dots to raise up the heart paper. Each Dteam kit included a bottle of Stickles and I used a hefty amount to cover the chipboard heart (leave it to dry overnight to avoid accidents!) I used the same ribbon again and found this sentiment in my stash.

I really enjoy the challenge of working with the design team kits and can't wait to see what next month brings!

Thanks for taking a peek and don't forget to check out all the other designer's creations on the Two Scrapbook Friend's gallery
