February 2012 Release Projects

And so, it all comes to an end. After 11 days of non-stop PTI fun, we're calling it a wrap on the 5th Anniversary activities. We had fun, got creative, and now we're going to go fold the piles of neglected clothes! But before we all do that, we're here one last time to show you the rest of the release projects. Here are mine.

Maile's Beautiful Butterflies. I created a bride out of a cut Parisian Doilie and a groom out of Smokey Shadow cardstock to go with the sentiment. I found that floral pips (you get them cheap in the floral depart of the craft stores) make excellent antennae for these die cut butterflies.  Lemon Tart, Harvest Gold, Aqua Mist, and Hawaiian Shores strips pop against a Soft Stone base.

Frame Outs #1 gets some help from Frilly Flowers and Think Big Favorites #13. Put the new Aqua Mist patterned paper to good use.

Frilly Flowers and Simply You together on a Vintage Cream card base. Loving the softer colors of ink now available--that's Fine Linen with BB: Text Style giving things a little personality in the background.

Lovely Leaves used as vertical borders. Aqua Mist felt butterfly matches gingham Aqua Mist patterned paper.

Heart-2-Heart #1. I think I'm going to really like this series! I made these cards for Hank's pre-school teachers as V-Day gifts. BB: Retro, Sign Language, and Sweet Love get dusted off and put to use. Check out that zipper die and the arrow...

...they reveal a Dunkin Donut gift card. There's room for one underneath the zipper panel if you use very think strips of Scor-Tape to adhere it. I just made sure to reference there was a "surprise underneath the pink zipper" in my handwritten note on the inside of the card. Don't want that getting tossed!

And that is that. Whew! See you next month. Find more inspiration using this month's release at the PTI's blogs below:
