030123 Archiscraps March Challenge


Use a whale or sea theme.

Another fun inspiration from Julene's store of Archiscraps unique architecture!

It put me in mind of a childhood treat we often had - to visit the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History.

Be sure to share how this inspired you - post over at the Facebook Archiscraps Community Group!

021823 CKC February Challenge #2


Use an envelope/bag for hidden journaling. 

The stamp set included an envelope with a letter part of the way out. An envelope or a bag is a perfect spot for hidden journaling.  

My paper collection in my kit included some cut-apart sheets with file folders & envelopes. I couldn’t come up with a story to document but began percolating an idea for a mini-book - pun intended as the collection is coffee centered :D 

I will need to hunt up some photos & write some heartfelt journaling before gifting it.

This was a ton of fun! I hope this challenge & the other team members’ projects have given you some ideas! And don’t forget the rest of the month at CKC:

24th February - Followers Showcase - who has caught our eyes this month.
28th February - Killing Kits - an idea or two focusing on using up the bits and pieces left in your kit.

020123 CKC February Kit Reveal & Blog Hop

All the love to all this month 💕 

Disclaimer: Due to technical difficulties my post will be minimal, so please refer to the main CKC post reveal for complete details!

Master Forger Cindy has invited the cheerful & uber-creative Karen Piettuszkiewocz to be February’s Guest Designer - yay!

Our inspiration kit is Cocoa Daisy February 2022 Elegance Blooms Kit See all kits at the link.

The overall color scheme put me in mind of the color palette in the older Felicity Jane kits. I had a sub for a few years so went in search of all things FJ in my stash! Unfortunately the patterned papers were nowhere to be found without a deep dive. I did find a bundle of the solid paper included each month with the scalloped border 💕

I present “Felicitations, Jane!”

My papers include a pad of Vicki Boutin mixed media paper. plus the Paper Phenomenom “Ladies Who Lunch” kit, which has a similar color scheme but a slightly more modern, edgy vibe. I used it in my June 2021 CKC kit & loved those pages.

My kit includes every FJ item that I own! I am hoping to use up a ton of these embellishments.

And as if that’s not all enough, here’s part 2!

Wish me luck! Don’t miss the chance to join in 😊
