Memory Works February Express Kit

This month I received the Carefree kit from Memory Works. If you click here, you can see all of the fun goodies that come inside the kit. Here's a layout of Katie at 3 months old. I used a sketch from Sketch Savvy too.

These are some of the cards I make using the kit. I used the "me and you" card to give to Ryan for Valentine's Day.

In the kit, there is a mini album-Maya Roads wavy layer book. I'm not a great mini-album maker so I kept thinking about what I could make that I would actually use to. I came up with the idea to create a book for Katie to look at with all of the people in our family so she can learn our names with the pictures. The book is chipboard so it is a kraft color and I did use acrylic paint to give the pages some extra color.

Valentine's Day projects

I think I had a total of 2 Valentine decorations so I decided to make a few new ones this year. I made this pillow and used scraps from the Valentine's Day banner I made last year. Here's the tutorial for this fun pillow.

And then I made this wreath for the front door from a tutorial found here.
I love having a few new decorations up around the house!!
