Nikki Sivils GDT!!!

***For Scraptacular Blog Hop post, see the one below***

I am so excited to be Nikki Sivils' GDT for February - see the post HERE. Of course, I will share my projects here too, and you get my customary million close-ups as well ;) LOL Nikki was SO generous and I got to work with 3 lines that I got to pick!

First up, I will share what I made with Sugar Cookie - I picked this line since it's February and love is in the air :) I'll start with a Disney LO, Pink Love. I also used Scrapmatts shapes - it's the topiary heart and the dress form...I heat embossed them with embossing it a nice antique-y texture, as well as the heart leaf sprays, which I covered with stickles.

I also used Sugar Cookie to do a vintage LO about my parents, also using Scrapmatts topiary heart again as well as a ton of Creative Charms - heart, flowers, brads, bling, cakes and lollipops, etc. The white chipboard swirls are also by Scrapmatts and again I heat embossed them.

I also picked the new line "We Are Family" to work with - I really loved the bright colors, like the deep red. First up is another Disney LO (Nikki's pp is perfect for fun LO's!), called Disney in 3D. I used another Scrapmatts topiary heart...I love these, can you tell?? LOL I also used a Scrapmatts kit, and I used a backing sheet that came with it to cut out the right sizes of pp to cover it, and then dressed it up with bows I cut out as well.

Using the new line I made another Heritage LO, "Love Grows Here"'s my mom with her parents. The red and green flowers and brads, as well as the polka-dot ribbon are by Creative Charms.

And last but not least, I also got the new line "Summer"....soooo perfect for a summer birthday! I made a mini about Morgan's 6th birthday, which we had at the pool. I used an old Bazzill mini I had. I glued 2 cardstock pages together for each page and then strayed them with Sweet Pea Glimmer Mist. Very bright and fun, and I like the watercolor effect.

Ok, thanks for looking!!
