February Club Projects featuring For Always paper

This will be our layout for the February club.  I don't think my photo quite captures how pretty this layout is. . .the beauty is in the details!  I use paper from the "For Always" paper packet (X7165B, $9.95), along with accents of Ruby cardstock.  You could use ANY accent color with this black and white kit, and I think that's what makes it SO incredibly versatile.  I don't think there's a color that would look bad with this paper packet.  I didn't have photos to put on this layout yet, but just FYI, the grey strip on the right page is meant to hold four 2 3/4" square photos, side by side.  Also, at the top of the right page, the "Here's Our Story" flap opens up for a place to add journaling or more photos.  This layout design is "Card Trick" from Jeanette Lynton's "Magic" book.   I used the Love Doily stamp set (B1418)--you won't believe the detail in this stamp as well as the stamp set from the For Always Workshop on the Go Scrapbooking Kit (G1055).  The flowers, hearts and "Love" were cut with the Cricut Artiste and Art Philosophy cartridges.
Here's a close-up detail of the lefthand page.   You can't quite see the Sparkle Flourish on there, but it gives the layout some beautiful shine!

And, for my cardmaking club members. . .

I made this card with the For Always paper packet using Lagoon cardstock as my accent color.  The stamp is from the new Perfect Fit--Birthday stamp set (B1417, $9.95).  I stamped the present in Honey ink and mounted it on foam tape to make it stand out.  The ribbon is our Black Striped Grosgrain (Z1781, $6.95)

I copied this card design right out of the new catalog and, again, it shows how easy it is to work with the papers from the For Always paper pack.  The "Hello" stamp comes from the Patterned Pennants stamp set (D1534, $17.95), and the speech bubble is cut from the Cricut Artiste cartridge.  I used Black Tulle Ribbon and our new Black Assortment buttons (LOVE these), Z1821, $5.95.

This is one of the MANY cards you can cut on the Cricut Artiste cartridge.  The black sleeve slides over the closed card--just cut it the same size as your card.  I can't remember which cartridge I used for my flowers (either Artiste or Art Philosophy), but they're cut from Honey cardstock and layered. 
This is another card design that I got from our new Spring/Summer Idea Book.  What I love about it is that I got to use some of our new For Always Textiles (Z1820, $8.95) on the card--you might not be able to tell from the photo, but the fabric is the black banner piece with white writing on it.  This fabric is so easy to cut, and it lays perfectly flat on your card.  I also used some of our new Black Shimmer Trim (love that this stuff is self-adhesive) and our new Black Assortment Buttons.  The accent colors are Lagoon and Ruby.  "Wishing You Congrats" comes out of the 4 My Friend stamp set (D1510, $17.95).
