A Lone Life Force That Nobody Could Stop

The February “By The Numbers” kit is A…M…A…Z…I…N…G!
I popped open the Cocoa Daisy box and the inspiration just bubbled out and I was off
Creating up a storm
The first page I made was about this Pretty Fella

Love the stamps that were on offer this month

and the endless possibilities that are at your fingertips

For this page I used the My Minds Eye Patchwork Party paper to create my own peacock
I simply cut out a section of the paper,
added a Tim Holtz number ‘1’
and some splashes of colour with Kaiser Pearls (found in the Barcode addon kit)

My second page was created because I looooove the My Minds Eye Countdown paper
The Chevron pattern side
AND
It was also created because I loooove this photo

AND
it was also created because I looooove this colour combination

AND
it was also created because
I had something to say (HA!)

This page was inspired by a youtube video I saw
You can read more about the inspiration here

“By The Numbers” has lots of Sassafras Lass
which is super cool
(and super sad too, with them recently announcing they were stopping producing their cool products)

I used the reverse image of The Crafter’s Workshop stencil with Cherry Maya Mist

Inspired by Anna’s Sketch challenge

I wrapped one of the 7gypsies metal pins in the twine from the Crate trims (found in the Barcode Add on)

so love all the little surprises in the kits
like this library card

The box has been closed up since the trip to Sydney
So I am hoping to crack it open again soon
and watch the inspiration bubble out again
Because
the March kit (Pier 39) is on it’s way
and it’s another cool looking kit!

Oh and so are the stamps

excited?
yes!
