Still a Scrap-a-holic in 2017

12:14:00 PM Venus Fortuna 2 Comments

Hello pretty peeps! It's me Venus. I am welcoming the first month of 2017 with lots of mojo for crafting, scrapbooking, and mail art. I am also hoping to update my blog more often, because I have been neglecting it for a while.

Without further ado, I am starting with a new scrapbook layout (above)  that I created over the weekend. I used fab papers from DCWV Minty Lace stack and bits of embellishments from my stash. Oh, I super like the colors of this stack! I followed the sketch of the month, which really simple, perfect for fast scrapping.

My 4x6  Valentine's Day cards look shiny because I used papers from DCWV Modern Metallic stack and red plaids from Christmas Plaid Stack. 
I used Sizzix dies to create the hearts and the Cupid, Mama Elephant stamps and laces. 

DCWV Modern Metallic and Christmas Plaid

I am looking forward to join the monthly Stack-a-holic challenge of DCWV this year. 

Thanks so much for dropping by my blog!
