february pages

We're alive!!! just in case you were wondering... we've been waiting for the albums to arrive. we've already been blessed with a generous donation from a sponsor. angela daniels with fiskars spoke with c&t publishing, and they donated these amazing canvas albums. thank you c&t publishing! thank you angela! to keep our project uniform in size, we're trimming our album pages to 9x8 (leaving a 1" seam to allow for binding later down the road).

okay, so each designer will be adding her creation here so keep checking back as they will be posting over the next few days. we look forward to hearing from you all so leave us a comment.

I thoroughly enjoyed scrapping Angela's fun New Year's photos. I wish I could include them all. I reduced the photos in size so I could get several on the canvas page. On three of the photos, I printed doubles and cut out the images of one photo and placed it on top of the other to give it a 3-D look. I love my Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists . . . instant color on the canvas. I love that Angela started off her "A Year in the Life of 'Me'" canvas book with New Year's photos. What fun!

Holy cow! I finally got my February layout done!! I had fun making a project with Elena's picture - and I'm in it! Tee hee!

Let me preface all of this by saying that this project is a little intimidating - not only because I have never worked in a canvas book like this before, but also because I am in a group with all these fabulous famous scrapping women, and then there is little ol' me. ;) I am honored to be a part of this project though, and I can't WAIT to see all the end results!!

Anyhow, Cheryl, Elena and I have a silly custom that has now become tradition every time we see each other, we take a "squishy face" picture! This is our most recent one from CHA in Anaheim... I painted the canvas with Kaiser paints, and then added some embellies! I think my favorite part of the page is the Hambly transparency under the flower button that I shrunk with my heat gun. And the new Prima flowers... I'm loving those too!


  1. While this is Elena's photo . . . I'm in the middle and I love being so. Melanie and Elena you are two lovely and beautiful ladies inside and out and I'm blessed to call you friend. I love this photo and I love being in between you two! I just wish I had more time with you both! Lovely page Melanie. I love the colors!
