Whimsy & Stars Studio February Blog Hop


Welcome to the February Whimsy and Stars Studio blog hop!   We are introducing two NEW February Digi releases, “Birthday Ladybug” and “You’re a Star”.    You have come here from the first stop on the hop, the Whimsy & Stars Studio blog.  If not, you might want to start at the beginning so that you don’t miss out on the DT’s gorgeous projects.  TWO random winners will be selected from the comments left during the hop to win ONE Whimsy and Stars Studio digi of their choice.  Be sure to leave a comment at each stop on the hop to increase your chances of winning.  The blog hop will run until Friday, February 8th, 7:00 p.m. Eastern Time.

For my card, I used the new image “You’re a Star”.  I thought she would make a fun birthday card.  Her    dress is paper pieced and shaded a bit with my Copics.

I made this card to send to a family member that has been in my thoughts a lot lately.

I hope to have more to share soon.

Just make a project that includes the color green and come join our party at the Catered Crop.For my project, I dug out a photo of of our sweet Summer was taken about a year ago.   Although I have been pretty lax about scrapbooking the last few years, I really wanted to make sure I created a page with this photo for my daughter’s scrap book.   We lost Summer, who was a member of our family for almost 15 years, in February so this page seemed especially important to me.After finding some paper that used a lot of green in it, I used lots of various odds and ends that I found in my craft room.  I mixed various stickers and die cuts from other projects to create this page.  As always, Linda has curated a fabulous Pinterest board to get our create mojo working.  (Don’t you just love her boards?)    You can go directly to Linda’s “Green”board by cl…
