Feb. Creative Images Meeting

We are back into our regular meeting/project schedule now that the new year and holidays are all done.  Besides it being a regular meeting, it was Valentine’s time, so our exchange theme of “penguins” included some Valentine penguins.  Stampin’ Up’s owl punch got a good workout, too, making penguins.

First, I have to apologize for the yellow tint to the pictures as I am still learning my new camera.  With Print Shop, Russel was able to correct the ones that had a lot of totally white areas, but you can still see the yellow.  The cards with too many shades, he couldn’t do anything with.  Sorry.

These first two are a good example.  Cheryl B’s snowflakes had too much blue mixed in, but it was really pretty and glittery IRL.  Ella made the cute little dresses and shoe Valentine.  Click on any pic to enlarge and back to return.

On the left is my Valentines card with two little penguins made with the Owl punch.  On the right is Pam’s birthday card with that same punch, but I think she forgot the wings made from the cut off ears. I know this because we both used the same Pinterest sample to come up with a penguin.


Pat J made this layered heart with a pretty heart embossed background.  Pat R made the cute die cut cupid mounted over a doily.

Tange used her owl punch to make her little penguin into a Christmas card.


Last, Therese did this Valentine collage with vintage papers. Much better IRL.


Helen had the project this month, a cute little two-pocket treat holder.  We folded and scored and punched and stamped, finally putting a little mint patty in each side.  Very cute.

Pat J brought in her sample of stamping and painting on a t-shirt.  This will be her project at March’s meeting.  Bring your t-shirt or whatever you want to stamp on next month.

Inside this little treat holder, handed out by Ella, was a little chocolate heart.  Yumm.


That’s it for this month.  Thanks for stopping by.
