Project Life snow layout

Use the extra papers and embellishments as well as the dies from February's Project Life picks to create a layout using some of the images that wouldn't fit into your Project Life album this month.  I'm continuing to get fantastic use from last months AND this months 'My Favorite Things' dies.  See the grey and blue pennants and the wood grain pinked circle and label snippet?  There will be lots of uses for these dies all year long!
Remember, all of these supplies are super versatile so don't keep them locked up only in your Project Life box.  They want to live free to grace whatever fabulous projects you can come up with.

Project Life technique and layout

Are you as in love with the popular candy dots as I am?! They really do add just the right 'something special'.  But if you're like me, I tend to hoard them as I don't want to run out.  Well you are in luck, because I have a product to share with you today that will allow you to use candy dots as much as your heart desires and in any color.  Check out the video for my quick tutorial using Viva Decor Pearl Pens and you'll see what I mean!  Happy dotting!
