February Garden Girl Digest


The Garden Girls (Two Peas In a Bucket's designers) have a fun blog hop for you today!  To start things off, I wanted to share a project that I made for the gallery this month.
     Pin It
This card is full of some of the things I really love right now.  I am completely obsessed with tin pins right now (aka: badges, metal buttons, flair).  I used some flair from American Crafts' Chap collection to dress up the chipboard camera & love how it adds an instant sentiment and embellishment in one!  I've been using my flair buttons with my Project Life album too.  There are so many fun designs & I want them all.  ;)


I also love using washi tape on my cards in lieu of ribbon.  Washi is also an addictive product.  I find myself wanting tape in every color and pattern now.  Yikes!
This layout (complete with video!) by Lisa Truesdell (gluestickgirl) simply takes my breath away!  I love the confetti trend & Lisa just blew this one out of the park!  If you haven't checked it out already, make sure to watch the tutorial.


I love this time of year!  New CHA goodies are being stocked almost daily now & here are some of my favorites:
InLinkz.com
1. The new Dear Lizzy Neapolitan collection is just scrumptious!  I love this particular sheet of paper because it's perfect for adding details to Project Life!  I think I'll also use it for birthday cards.


2. Echo Park's This & That Charming collection is a great new line for people like me who have a house full of boys!  I love the vintage cameras & rulers... and the colors are just perfect!


3.  Two Peas just restocked a lot of my favorite Ormolu products.  Here's one of the flair packs that is super fun.


4.  I fell in love with these alpha stickers from Prima at CHA.  They are JUST the perfect size to add sentiments to cards and (as you might have guessed that I would say) details to Project Life.  They come in a lot of colors & are packed with letters.


5.  Another new product from Prima is catching my eye this week.  This is a pack of ledger paper in various scrumptious shades.  Great for backgrounds & die cutting!
