Hi Everyone, Wow how much fun was MOC this year? I can’t believe how everyone powered through the Jan challenges and now we’re all ready to be inspired by the February ones! This month I’m hosting the HEART IT |Style Challenge. Because Valentines falls in the month of February, I thought why not make a page that celebrates the people, pets, places and things in our life that get that ticker of ours fluttering. I can’t think of a better way to do that than by creating a page that has a huge big love filled HEART, smack bang in the centre of our page! CHALLENGE CRITERIA: Create a project that showcases a REALLY BIG HEART as the main element of which is placed or situated in the centre of the design. (You can add extra hearts but make sure your page still has that one LARGE HEART as the dominant feature in your design.) Some ways to make your HEART stand out. Try filling it with coordinating pattern papers, play around with a collage of photo’s or place lots of different elements that help tell your story. Alternatively you could use paint to define the heart shape or leave it one solid colour. Whatever takes your fancy, go for it! Just make sure that Heart remains the dominant shape within your page. I’m so lucky to share my life with this kind and cute man. I needed a way to represent how much he makes my heart flutter, so I stacked a few dimensional paper hearts to show him exactly how much I luvs him! (Note: Each heart represents an infinite number of hearts, so thats pretty big right? hehe) My page for the FEBRUARY STYLE CHALLENGE : HEART IT XOXO EPHEMERA ELEMENTS | Sahlin Studio PRACTICALLY PERFECT KIT | Sahlin Studio & Juliana Kneipp WORTH A THOUSAND WORDS KIT | Sahlin Studio BIG RUMPLED ALPHA | Kim Jensen Designs WORN PAGE EDGES NO2 | Lynn Grieveson STITCH IN TIME LENGTHS | Lynn Grieveson A BIT WORN No6 | Valorie Wibbens A BIT WORN HEARTS | Valorie Wibbens BY THE THREAD | Valorie Wibbens For extra inspiration I have put together a HEART IT | PINTEREST BOARD which has tonnes of great ideas to inspire your pages.

Also check out the VALENTINES HOLIDAY CATEGORY in the TLP store or alternatively SHOP BY THEME and find tonnes of inspiration in there too. Remember our monthly challenge rules: Your page must contain at least 75% Lilypad product. Your page should be posted to the Lilypad Gallery and then linked to the FEBRUARY Challenge Layouts thread so it can be tracked, and also add it to this thread so we can all like it and leave some loving. The Lilypad uses a percent system for our challenges; the number of challenges you participate in determines the store discount you will receive at the end of the month: 2 challenges = 10% off 4 challenges = 20% off 6 challenges = 30% off If you complete 7 challenges, you will receive a coupon for 30% off, plus you will be entered to win a $50 gift certificate from the Lilypad! The first seven challenges will be posted on the first of the month; the eighth challenge is the BYOC challenge, which is posted on BYOC release day. Each page counts for one challenge (you cannot use one layout for multiple challenges). I can't wait to see your loved up HEART pages in the gallery!
