Love Notes

Happy Friday everyone! Aimee here with one more layout created with the January kit! My sweet baby girl is all the time writing me little notes telling me how much she loves me. I NEVER get tired of receiving her little love notes to me!! So I thought this was something that needed to be documented and the January kit has the perfect papers/embellishments to do just that!

I took one of the Pebbles envelopes and tucked a few of her little love notes in it.

For more details of my layout, please visit my blog.

Hi....Sandi here today to share two more cards with you.  I cannot believe how large these Artful Delight card kits are!  I have made nearly 10 cards and have barely made a dent in my kit.  This one is going to be for my hubby as we both enjoy photography:

And this card is a thank you for a sweet online friend.
I will let you in on a secret....I just received the February card kit and you will not want to miss it.  There are TWO stamp sets included and loads of awesome embellishments and papers.  Sign up for your subscription HERE.

gift card holders

Hello, it's Amy here with a couple quick cards:

The January Card Kit comes with Studio Calico envelopes.  I decided to have some fun with them and incorporate them into a clean & simple card design.

This 'sweet' card has a die cut from the January card kit.  I decided to replace the original thread that kept the flaps together with twine that I had in my stash.  I used my pinking shears to trim the side off of the envelope so that I could pop a gift card inside.

I used the same concept on my second card.  I kept the thread intact on this envelope but rather than use another die cut for the sentiment, I used the Paper Smooches stamp set that came in the kit.

Super  E  A  S  Y  cards.

For more deets, please pop over to my blog.

Thanks for stopping by!

Love To Love Ya Baby :)

Good Monday morning, all! Suzanne here to share my last layout with the January Scrapbook Kit. And let me tell you I still have LOTS left. These kits are packed!  Here's my page:

Love the title diecut :) I certainly love to love on my baby girl (here at 3 weeks old). My husband went back to work that day and I sent him this "selfie".

This envelope holds a private message to her.

I think my favorite thing about this layout (besides the pic hehe) is the You + Me flair :)

Thanks for stopping by Artful Delight today and checking out my project. Have a great week!!

A Love Story

  Hi!   This is June with a little card inspiration.  I am still having fun playing with the varied papers and elements in my Artful Delight January card kit.  It is so much easier to create when the elements from various manufacturers are already coordinated in one kit.  The fun striped chevron paper and grey heart die cut are both from the Fancy Pants "Be Loved" collection and both stickers ("a love story" pennant and "happy valentine's day...FEB 14 REC'D") are both from the Crate Paper "Love Notes" collection.  I added some loopy stone baker's twine from my stash.

  With each kit I challenge myself to use different elements from the kit, since I always gravitate to polka dots, stripes, and flowers.  With each and every card I try to use something different from the kit, and yet even after creating 5-6 cards each month there is still papers that are uncut and elements I have not yet used.  This is why I am a fan of these kits!  I often find myself using elements from past kits with newer kits and other projects.  And even though my older kits from 2011 and 2012 are down to bare bones, sometimes there is a paper or embellishment that is perfect for a current project.  The kits that keep on giving...

  I also challenge myself to create a masculine card each month.  This valentine was my attempt at a masculine card...how did I do?

Don't forget to check out the February kit reveal here next weekend.

Happy Sunday!  June

Be Mine and More........

Hi, Sandi here with a couple more cards I created with the wonderful January card kit.  The above card I made for my son Adam for Valentine's Day.  He and his sons, Jacob age 12 and Cole age 8 love to go to movies so I thought a fun gift for him (and not too mushy) for Valentine's Day would be a movie gift card.  I used one of the kraft envelopes from the kit as the gift card holder and I just LOVE the Movie Night stamps included in the Paper Smooches stamp set from this month.  Honestly one of my very favorite parts of the card kits every month is looking forward to the fantastic stamp set that will be in the kit and this month there are TWO stamp sets!!
Next up, I cut a window in my gatefold card to show off my sweet little birdie.  The birdie and the quote are from the Fancy Pants Beloved Collection. I love everything in this kit and have used a good part of it already and intend to use up every scrap and embellishment in this kit.  Stay tuned next week for 2 or maybe even three more projects.  For details on how you can get your own kit go HERE.

Hello, it's Amy!

The January Card Kit is so much fun!

I've really been enjoying putting together the papers...they are so pretty!

Everything on my card is from the kit except for the glitter tape.  It's a great way to add zing to your card, eh?

Make sure you check out the January Kits HERE.

Good morning! Suzanne here sharing a layout of my adorable daughter with 2 of her beautiful cousins. I love these girls! They are as sweet as they are cute!

And if you love cute and girly, than you must LOVE this month's scrapbook it! Check it out in the store HERE!

The quote says "Cousins are the first friends we have as children. No one understands our crazy family like cousins do." True no?

Everything on my layout is from the January kit except for those wood alphas (only because I used up all the "s's" from the included alpha on my "Sass" layout.. lol!).

Have a great week!

We Totally Click

  Hi, this is June with a little card inspiration.  I had a lot of fun (and perhaps a little nutty) playing with the papers and Paper Smooches stamp set in my January 2014 Artful Delight card kit.  I used four different stamps from the "We Totally Click" stamp set.  My twine is from the January 2012 Artful Delight kit and the metal vellum tag is part of my ancient stash.

  There are still some kits available, so what are you waiting for?  If you already have your kit, go play!  And if you would like a chance to win next month's kit, just play along with the sketch challenges (see right-hand side bar).  You have until 1/23/14 11:59pm EST to link up!

Happy Sunday!  June

Happy Love Day layout

TGIF!! It's Aimee here again with some Friday inspiration! I'm still creating layouts and loving the January kit! Today I have another Valentine's layout and this time it's a boy layout. I chose to go with some of the more masculine colors from the kit to document my son's Valentine's Day from last year. I used black and white pictures that fit perfectly with the colors and patterns of the kit.

For more details please visit my blog.

Hoo Loves You

Sandi Pressley here on the blog today.  I am still immensely enjoying working with the January kit.  I live in Florida and my grandchildren live in the Midwest (Chicago area) with my sons and their families. I love putting tegether packages of goodies for them for their birthdays and holidays if I don't get a chance to be there with them.  Valentine's Day is just so much FUN to craft for.  Who doesn't love hearts and pink owls????  LOL!  These owls were a ton of fun to make and I even broke out my nearly vintage decorative edge scissors!  The scraps of paper show the large variety of different patterend papers there are in an Arful Delight card kit.  Leanne really packs these kits full of pretty papers and fun embellishments.  (like those sparkly hearts that I used for the owls' eyes)  Link up a project with either a card sketch or layout sketch (or both for two chances to win!) and you could be the lucky winner of a kit of your own.  Or better yet sign up for a subscription HERE so you don't miss any of the upcoming goodies.

So Ready to Meet You!

Good morning! Suzanne here to share another layout using the January Scrapbook Kit. I am in loveee with the patterned papers included in this month's kit. So, I cut a few of them into various shapes and sizes of hearts to label 3 of the sets of people that came to visit my baby girl when we brought her home. I embellished the 3 photos with those fun photo corners and tickets that came in the die cut pack. There is SO much in this kit to create so many cute projects. Check it out here.

Have a great Monday!

You Make Me Smile

Sandi Pressley here and I love Valentine's Day.  I love to tell my family how much they mean to me and Valentine's Day is a day to do just that.  When I found out that the January kit was love/Valentine's Day themed I {may} have let out a little squeal!  And the colors are my very favorite....who can go wrong with pink, red and aqua???  This first card that I made was inspired by Suzanne's awesome sketch:
Try your hand at this sketch and/or the layout sketch and you could win a kit of your choice from Artful Delight.....details on the sketch challenge are right HERE.

My love for you grows!

 Hi everyone! Julie with you here to share 2 layouts I made with the amazing January kit! This month's kit ROCKS! I made a total of 7 layouts and 1 altered project this month!! :)

This first layout I am sharing today is based on this month's sketch :) 

And here is my take on it!

 (everything is from the January kit expert for the sparkly heart - I had that in my crafty stash) 

And here is my second layout - 

 This one I had lots of fun making! I punched hearts along the white background paper I used on here - then I punched more hearts out from scraps I had used on other layouts and placed them on top of the punched heart border I had created -- I used 3D foam dots to add some depth.  :)

Hello My Name Is Sass

Hi everyone! Suzanne here sharing my layout inspired from Debbie's sketch and using the January Scrapbook Kit.   I flipped flopped the photo placement since my baby girl was leaning to the left. At just 3 weeks old she already had a lot of sass ;) I love that "Hello My Name Is" diecut included in the Fancy Pants Be Loved Ephemera Pack.  I hope you enjoy all the girly, pink goodness in this month's kit as much as I do!
