Please welcome our guest designer for February.

We have a great guest designer this month: she played along with us in many challenges and in October we chose her beautiful card as our favorite project.
Please help us welcome Kitty as our guest designer this month.
She has made a wonderful card for us this month based on the February pop song - discover both songs and our challenges of the month here.     


Let's meet KT Fit Kitty and discover how she was inspired by our song:

"Hi, I’m Kitty and I am excited and honoured to be a Guest Designer at Scrap it with a Song!  Since I am already a big fan of Adele's, I was immediately inspired by the Pop Song and decided to make a Hello card with lots of fun embellishments! The telephone plays a big part in the song so it features prominently on my card. You can read more details about my card on my blog here.
Thank you to Scrap it with a Song for having me as your Guest Designer!
Wishing you and your followers a joyful day!"

February 1st Reveal

It is February 1st already and time for a new pop song and a new rock song to give you inspiration for a project.  This month we have some fairly new songs that are on the radio quite a lot.  I really like both of these songs and hope you all do too.  Listen to the rock song and the pop song and choose one or both and make a paper project based on anything the song inspires you to do. It doesn't have to be a scrapbook layout: it can be any type of paper project.  By the way it can even be a digital design.
Inspiration can be anything at all: it can be the title, it can be words in the song, it can be how the song makes you feel, really just any thing that the song inspires you to feel.  Please tell us how the song inspired you on your project.You can do a layout or project for each of the songs, just do separate entries for each.  Link up at the top right with the linky tool.  The winner will be picked at random by the linky tool on the last day of the month.  Also the design team will pick their favorite project and ask the designer to be our guest on the blog in an upcoming month.  We hope you will join all the lovely designers on the team and get some of those projects done while listening to music.

 Our songs for February are -click on titles to be taken to the video:


Rock Song
Pop Song


Let's see what the first half of the team has for you.

Rock Team

I didn't know this song previously: when I listened to it for the first time it suddenly gave me a sense of fun and happiness. I saw the video and it was so colorful... I wanted to recreate something fun and colorful! These are pictures from 2014 Valentine's Day: me and my hubby toke part in a craft party together! So much fun making felted ornaments - hot air balloons and clouds, so you can understand why I used them as embellishments!



I have still a very well relation (most often) with my ex-husband, and father of my son. I'm happy with that, so I used the word EX to make a LO about him!


Pop Team

Astrid


I have been thinking a lot about what to do with this song, but the lyric "hello from the otherside" was spinning around my mind. 'the otherside" made me think of out of space, aliens and so on,  and than I remember this photo from last year at the history of the planes museum. I went a little nuts with my stamps and embellies ;-)


Marie-Christine


I was inspired by the title "Hello" and I wanted to make something funny and try mixed media technique. So, this is a tag that says "Hello" to you!

Tips & techinque: have fun with chipboard

Hi everyone Sharon with you today.  I just want to show you a little trick I used on some of the chipboard embellishments that I used on this layout of my granddaughter and some friends.  The chipboard stars circle is from Creative Embellishments.  I used a gold Cricut marker and colored the stars.  Then after I did that I used some Bo Bunny gold glitter paste and added it to some of the stars too.

I found a card chipboard in my stash (don't know what company) and colored it with a Viva pearl pen in red.  I also used the pearl red on the cricut cut "look whoos here" along with some more of the Bo Bunny gold paste.  Black and gold cardstock from my stash and the rest of the paper is from Simple
Stories Say Cheese Collection as are the brads.  I used my cricut to cut the film strips and the circle along with the title.  I used a sketch by Leah Schaeffer from 2013 




                                             
 Now here is a picture of my layout.  Thanks for looking at it.  I was inspired by the rock song.  Every You Every Me.  It used the words you were heaven sent and my granddaughter is heaven sent.  She is so sweet and lovely to me.

There is still plenty of time to join us here.  Link up your project on the side bar before the end of the month.  You can find the details here for the challenges
