Hello MLS fans. Can you believe that tmr is March 1st? It's a new year and we're already off and running right thru it! February has been a fun month sharing projects created with our new collections and a mix of our previous release. Today we have some more wonderful projects from our team to finish off the month with!
Which way? Destination
Keely's Notes: I used Destinations, one of my fav collections. I love the youthful, whimsical patterns in this collection. I think this collection is not only perfect for travel projects, but also this layout about the future. Which direction will my boys decisions take them? I enjoy using the mini-alpha stickers to add details to the diecut stickers.
Paper wreath: Pretty Little Things
Rocio used Pretty Little Things for her amazing project.
Smile & Happiness cards: Enchanted Garden and Audrey
Pearl mixed our Enchanted Garden and Audrey collections.
Cold hands warm heart
: Winter Wonderland
Love the canvas mix Zoe used here.
Beckie's Notes: I used a little clipboard to make a 'holiday planner'.
There is a pocket at the bottom to hold documents etc in.
On some of the flowers use a paper crimper to add some texture.
Destinations Collection: Happy Hour, Postcard
Winter Wonderland Collection: Boughs of Holly
Enchanted Garden Collection: Dazzling, Radiant, Magnificent
Pretty Little Things Collection: Seed Packets, Cardstock Stickers
Playtime Collection: Cardstock Stickers
Glitter Alphabet Stickers: Toffee
Mini Alphabet Stickers: Limeade, Lollipop
Becky's Notes: For our assignment this month we were to create a layout using any of the collections so I chose to mix up a few of the collections and love the result. I like how the colors in the different lines compliment each other making it easier to mix the lines. I love the look of chevron stripes so for this layout I made some strips and instead of layering them one above the other I decided to overlap one of them creating more of an argyle pattern. The butterflies are punched from some of the patterned paper and adhered with staples, one of my favorite fasteners. I used lots of the cardstock stickers adding foam adhesive to some to give more dimension to the page.

Hi MLS fans, it's Melinda here with you for this week's Tuesday tutorial and I'm crossing my fingers that you enjoy today's steps in showing you how to put together a scented clothes hanger for your wardrobe using the gorgeous new collection 'Lovely Day'.
Step 1: Using the Flower Ring circle I turned it over and roughly drew a spiral and then added scallops to use as a template for cutting. You seriously don't need to be too exact with your drawing abilities as the flowers look lovely regardless. I think that's why I like them so much!
Step 2: Cut your template out.
Step 3: Usin g a large quilling tool I rolled the flower starting from the outside and rolling in towards the centre.
Step 4: Allow your flower to unravel slightly and then adhere to the baseplate using a hot-glue gun. You can roll the edges of your outer petals to achieve a neater flower.
Step 5: Using the patterned paper 'Let the Sunshine' cut a 4" birdcage from the Cricut cartridge 'Straight From the Nest'.
Step 6: Place the birdcage onto a self-adhesive backed piece of coloured foam.
Step 7: Cover the entire piece of foam in baby powder to remove the adhesive areas that are not covered by the birdcage and then cut around the cage leaving a small margin of approximately 2-3mm.
Step 8: Punch a whole in the top of the birdcage where you will thread a ribbon and tie a small bow then add some pearls to add extra pizzaz.
Step 9: Turn the foam piece over and add a small drop of your favourite liquid concentrated scent. The foam will soak in the scent and last for months and months. Also, lavender is a great sc ent for clothing as it relaxes fibres which reduces wrinkles when hanging.
Step 10: Time to decorate the hanger. Add your scented foam birdcage to the hanger and then cover the ribbon with the large flower using a hot glue gun for best results. I added quite a few of the smaller 3D Roll-Up Flowers and a few punched leaves to finish off the overall look.

Good morning MLS fans! We hope you had a great weekend! Today Shelly has taken out Trick or Treat collection and is showing you how this collection can be used for a non-Halloween themed creation.
Purple and Orange together are a fun color combination and Shelly used them perfectly to create this sweet love themed card.
Here's a closer look at her rolled flowers.
Thanks for sharing this twist on the Trick or treat collection today Shelly! Don't forget that we have a Design Team call going on and all the details are here.
