I was "tickled pink" when I received the National Scrapbook Month Campaign and knew I had just the pictures. Using the templates found in the kit I was able to create 4 stunning pages that really capture the moments that I will cherish for a lifetime. I not only was able to begin my All About Me album, but the second layout helped me really capture the birth of our second child, Maggi.

I love these colors for her baby pages, but these papers are timeless and the stamp set is one I will use over and over again. You can see in a past post that I used the stamp set to create a card for a good friend of mine.

Technique: I was able to use the die-cuts in the create these beautiful 3D paper embellishments as well as second generation stamping on my title, "so happy". I used the foam tool found in the kit to add a little ink to the sides of my title as well to help it really stand out.

Materials: Tickled Pink Kit; Ink Colors:Blush, Crystal Blue, and Black; White Daisy Mini-Melodies Accent Kit

Now "Hop" on over to Helen's blog to see her work! Be sure to visit all the Consultants at their Blogs to get some great crafting ideas and see the great new Paper Packs and My Acrylix Stamp Sets! Remember, the Summer 2009 Idea Book goes LIVE on May 1st!
