Welcome March!

 I welcomed the beginning of this month the same way I welcomed February... cropping with the Get It Scrapped gang. I managed to complete quite a few pages yesterday. Almost all of my December Story has been completed except for two layouts. I was pretty pleased with how much I managed to accomplish despite spending a large portion of the day just talking.

March 1st is also the reveal day for JBS Mercantile. I decided to start my month by getting some use out of my Silhouette Portrait. I have made it a goal this year to use more of my tools. My first step was to take a Silhouette Fundamentals class over at Creative Passions Classes. I have gotten part way through the first class and find myself using my silhouette a whole lot more than I was before.

I used this month's exclusive JBS Mercantile Kit cut for this layout. It's a free cut file that is included with every main kit purchase. This month's cut features a Plus One stencil. It leaves behind this awesome plus sign style confetti. I decided to use a glue pen to adhere rows of the tiny symbol on this layout. It creates a wonderful tone on tone texture. You may have noticed I am using this Lavender Sachet homemade mist a lot lately. It's very close to radiant orchid. I used a brush and allowed the mist to run down the page.The black sequins from the Classic Sequin Assortment have a slight purple sheen that went well with this layout.

Here is a closeup of the little plus signs. Yes, a few are missing. That's ok. It just adds a little visual interest to the pattern.

I will be sharing the actual stencil cut design later on this month. Meanwhile, don't forget to check out the fabulous JBS Mercantile Design Team Kit Gallery.
