Some Burlap & Buttercups inspiration

This is my third kit with Burlap & Buttercups and I have to say I love these kits!  Each one is so stuffed with goodies it isn't funny!  You can find 4 challenges a month posted on their blog which always have some yummy goodies attached also. 

One of the challenges this month was to make an ornament or home decor project using a tutorial and share the link.  So, here is one that I had bookmarked

and here is mine turned out - I used a full 12x12 sheet of paper and a 1" heart punch; I found it worked great to fold the heart like a bird (mountain, valley, mountain).

Materials used:  Jillibean Soup, Martha Stewart, Stickles, Michael's craft supply

This is my entry for the sketch challenge that they offer:

Materials used:  Dec Burlap & Buttercups kit - Simple Stories, Prima, American Crafts

And this was a layout I created to remember 2011 and all that it included.
Materials used:  Nov & Dec Burlap & Buttercups kit - MME, Simple Stories, KI Memories, American Crafts, Girls Paperie
