january pixie challenge: ♥LOVE NOTES♥
you probably know that my dear pixie-in-chief kirsty vittetoe holds a little challenge every month on the pixie blog. she sets a theme, invites papercrafters to create any sort of project they'd like, and awards a prize! it's always fun and inspiring, and thus i recommend checking it out! this month, there's an even better than usual reason to do so, in that the last few days have featured the creations of our brand new challenge design team... and those are VERY MUCH worth seeing, i assure you!!!
not to be outdone, of course i had to have a little go at the valentined themed ♥LOVE NOTES♥ challenge. you can probably guess the brief, can't you? make any type of project you like, but it has to either contain the word "valentine" OR have the image of a heart on it somewhere. having made some pretty cool valentine stuff using this month's LOVE NOTES KIT, i decided to go with the heart.
you'll notice that apart from the blue graph paper heart (actually an off-cut from another of this month's projects!) i didn't use much of the LOVE NOTES kit in my card. not because i didn't have enough supplies left, i assure you... (pixie kits are GENEROUS, i have never, EVER used one up, despite the fact that i generally create half-a-dozen projects each month!!!) ...but mostly because for christmas, the lovely miss kirsty verrrrrrry kindly gave me the only pixie kit i've missed out on--november's PINK ROSE COTTAGE and i am IN LOVE with pink paislee woodgrain paper. (in love!!!) everything else is a leftover from one or other of the pixie kits: sass diecut flowers from SUMMER OF LOVE; american crafts key from MY FUNKY VALENTINE, etc; the only thing that came from my "civilian" stash was the sentiment made up of the yellow stickers, which is from a glitz designs sticker sheet.
have *YOU* made any valentines yet? if not, this would be an excellent time! or for any other love-themed projec-- just think HEARTS and/or "valentine" and link up before the end of the month on the pixie blog!!! ♥♥♥
