February Ideas!!!

February Ideas by Lindsey Krauss

February is here, how are those New Year’s resolutions going? Well, you know this month – break out the Valentine-y, lovey dovey, red, pink and white! Or, don’t!! I created a page for this month, still about love, but all in brown and blues – quite liberating! Try your next Valentine page in something other than traditional styles, colors and themes.

Nothing wrong with traditional, though, so here are some more ideas.

Hearts and stars.
Circles – as in our love goes round and round.
Polka dots – because they’re often as cute as our loved ones.
Wings – bring ‘em back into your next page, straight from Cupid!

Love – Cute, romantic or even grungy!
How you met
Valentine plans: past, present and future
Your first Valentine (a person or spent together)
Broken hearts

Journaling is strongly making a comeback – if it ever really left the “in” crowd. Take the February opportunity to make notes, write stories, record memories at length on your pages.
Scrape it! Use that edge scraper, sand paper, files and tear it up.
Add ink, paint, glitter, sprays, liquid and alcohol inks to give it a little more edge.
What’s a girl’s favorite gift? Gold. Bring back the gold – find new ways to use old gold embellishements – all over!

Have fun and be in love this month, and don’t forget to share! Come show us your February layouts – link us up and show in the TTT user gallery. Can’t wait to see what you create!
