The New Year with The Crafty Chicks Blog Hop!


Happy New Year 2014! Another wonderful year has gone by. I hope you all had wonderful holidays and happy moments alongside family and friends.

This month, our theme is Valentine’s Day or Love. You will get to see a few projects by a bunch of amazing ladies! I went ahead and made this adorable Valentine’s Day / wedding scrapbook. I had this chipboard album lying around for the past year, and figured I might as well use it eventually! I mostly used Carta Bella’s collection Beautiful Moments to make the album.

I also added lots of embellishments, and some handmade ones by my Etsy Friend Stephanie from H.E.R.Trinkets! (She is awesome). It`s the felt heart. She is my felt girl! I got to her for anything felt related.

So here are some mini challenges that I gave to myself when creating the mini album. If you are looking for some inspiration, I challenge you to try them and share your projects with us on our Facebook page. We really like it when we get project submissions, so don’t be shy!

Mini Challenge 1: Use that scrapbooking thing that has been lying around forever and make something with it!

In this instance, I used an old chipboard album.

Mini Challenge 2: Make a Love or Valentine’s Day inspired project.

I incorporated lots of journalling spots to write lovely things about your loved one!

Mini Challenge 3: Create your own embellishment.

Okay, I technically did not create this beautiful felt heart, but it’s handmade :P

Mini Challenge 4: Incorporate this colour palette into your design.
