February Inspiration + Video Tutorial
by Kareen Dion

Hello everyone!

It's Kareen here today with my inspirations!
So, it's still winter in Canada and I'm really looking forward to the Spring now.
I just can't take it anymore with all the snow and the cold.

But anyway, I don't really have a choice so I'm still presenting you two
Winter layouts this month!

My first layout is a pink/purple winter layout.
I used four different chipboards to enhance my page.
For adding texture on my background, I used Turkish Lattice Panel, I also added
a Modern Swirls, a deer from the Deer Head Set and the title #love from the Mini #Word Set 1.

You can see that I embossed the Modern Swirls chipboard with a light pink embossing powder.

The title #love from the Mini #Word Set 1was embossed with purple embossing powder and
I added chunky white embossing powder on it, but not everywhere as it gives a little
snowy look.

And for the  Turkish Lattice Panel it is simply black embossed and the Deer from the
 Deer Head Set is embossed with a two-tones embossing powder.

- Turkish Lattice Panel

- Modern Swirls

"Today is Perfect"

My second layout is still a winter layout with my daughter.
She enjoys playing in the snow, but not the cold! 

She gave me a great picture and I couldn't resist to put it on a page!
I also have a video process with this layout!!

I used the Moroccan Panel, the stars from "Love You to the Moon Set"
the Mini Hot Air Balloons and finished with the title "Today is Perfect".

The title "Today is Perfect" is embossed with very light color. It's the
 same color that the Moroccan Panel is on the background.

The little stars from the "Love You to the Moon Set" are painted with gold paint.

For the Mini Hot Air Balloons, I applied a layer of white
 gesso and then added paint (gold and magenta).

And here is the video process :

An extra layout!
Yes I have an extra layout today!! As 2Crafty is sponsoring the blog challenge

I did a summer layout as the picture inspired this so much!
And all that tropical vibes, I had to use the 6" Flamingo Frame Set!!
I added the Chicken Barbed Wire Small on the background and
 finished with the sea "Line Words Summer" set of chipboards.

For the 6" Flamingo Frame Set, I embossed all the frame pink but for the leaves on the 
chipboard, I added green embossing powder, that gives two tones on the same chipboard.

For the title sea "Line Words Summer", I simply white embossed it.

And for the Chicken Barbed Wire Small I also used white embossing powder.
