Happy New Year

 Happy New Year to all of you!  I am excited to start the new year on the Gecko Galz design team.    
This month we have teamed up with Basic Grey to show everyone how well the their products work with Gecko Galz Products! So enter the Gecko Galz  & Basic Grey Valentine Challenge, more details on the Gecko Galz site.   
I used the Gecko Galz Valentine Wishes ephemera set to make this card, along with the gorgeous paper from the Basic Grey True Love Collection for my envelope liner.  I fussy cut the heart, added some Stickles, Liquid Pearls, and foil corners, then popped it up on some foam, I love the effect so much I had to share a close up.   You can create your own Valentine project using Gecko Galz and Basic Grey products and win the new Basic Grey "True Love" digital paper pack and Gecko Galz February products.  How cool is that!  Speaking of Kool, check out these Kitchy Kool Papers from Gecko Galz, that I used to make this little notebook for my daughter, also part of the January release. See the cute flags and buttons, those little gems are from the Basic Grey True Love Collection  too.   I printed them up twice and glued them together then punched some little holes to thread the bakers twine through, I threaded that up the spine of the notebook along with the thin red ribbon so she can use them as dividers or bookmarks.
Well thats it, hope you have had a wonderful New Years Day, and as always, thanks for looking.  ~Diane

  13. such clever use of product. I love the embellished heart and am always fascinated by your envelope liners. I love the Kitchy Kool papers and plan to make some ATCs with them. Your notebook with the BasicGrey bookmark is very "kool".

  18. Hi Diane, so fun to view your gorgeous card again. Hope you are staying warm in this deep freeze we are all having. It sure is a cold start top 2014 and looks like a bad winter all around for most of the country.
    I did not find the Silhouette at JoAnn's. They showed they carried it but the manager said they never had it in the store. Going to Michael's when it warms up a bit as they do carry it in store.
    Stay warm and have a great week. hugs
