Happy 29th Feb 2012 ! Happy Leap Year Day !

Happy 29th Feb , blogging friends ! 
Just had to celebrate this leap year moment for a change . 
I trust your February has turned out good in everywhere , 
as it totally has for me . 
A gorgeous day here , weather wise in Sunny Singapore - 
And wishing you sunshine too - wherever you go ! ;) 

Over the weekend I received a request to create a unique, handmade birthday greeting 
for a 30 something , chic & successful young man . 
So paying a crafty visit to my generous pal , Flora Tan
is always timely and the project worked out as a Zutter mini album - using 4 sheets of cardstock - which yielded 12 pages .

Wanting to keep things simple , being a masculine project-
my main supplies were a sheet of Kaisercraft rub on quotes on Life ,
glimmer mists , tissue tape by Tim Holtz and AC Amy Tangerine's line, some dimensional embellies by AC and buttons. 

Loved how easy this project turned out in the end and I think I would like to invest in Zutter next for a gamechange in my crafting ways ! ;)

Back with some Valentine's Day cards to share 
and using some of the latest Cottage Cutz  Valentine's Day release! 

So the first die I just had to try out is our Layered, Sweetheart Flowers die .
I chose to diecut my flower pieces out of glittered cardstock and metallic foil papr
This flower here is secured with an Eyelet Outlet Cupcake brad
 to go with the sentiment. 
Using foam pads to put the layers together I easily created my very own layered dimensional blossoms. Easy Peasy ! ;)
