I'm back- already?

Yup, you heard me right. I'm here. Two days in a row. (Amazing!)

1. I couldn't pass this color combo up. This is, once again, a Kristina Werner Color Inspiration Challenge (#38 to be exact).

Here's what I came up with:

I guess it's never to early to start making Valentine's. It's probably good to note that I was also inspired by the Hero Arts Blog this week where the focus is pocket cards. I didn't use a Hero Arts Stamp, though, so I guess I can't enter that in the Flickr pool this week. Oops!

Supplies: Patterned paper- Sassafras Lass, cardstock- Archiver's (light pink, dark pink), The Paper Studio (White), American Crafts (Orange), Stamps- Studio G, Marker- American Crafts, White Pen- Sakura, Black Ink- Stazon, Embossing Power- JoAnn's, Foam Dimensionals- EK Success, and Stickles

2. My picture of the day today- my friend Alex came over to work on a scrapbook for her boyfriend. It's fun helping her and amusing her with all the tools the scrapbooking world has to offer:


3. I made this while she was working. I finally got to use my Butterfly punch that my best friend got me for Christmas. I'm in love.

I punched butterflies out of scraps of paper I had in my bin, used a grid to align the white ones (they add a sense of movement), and then curled the wings of the pretty butterflies before adhering them. This is for my desk for a little inspiration when I need it. :)
Supplies: Butterfly punch- EK Success, Cardstock- Archivers (Pink), The Paper Studio (White), Patterned Paper- Various manufacturers (if you want to know one specifically, just comment and I'll let you know.)

4. I got my hair cut. It's short and cute. I think that'll be my picture for tomorrow.

Have a wonderful evening! Coming up next: and actual scrapbook page. I hope.
