Are you also obsessed with office supplies? I find I’m always stashing away my favorite scissors and pens. Do you hide your favorite supplies too? I was so excited to open my February Messy Box to find the cutest retro office supply themed kit. I think my favorite part of the kit is the cork board number stickers. Plus, the colors are perfect for this time of year in Phoenix. It’s already starting to feel like summer! The bright pastels are so cheery!
Something I really love about the Messy Books are the 9 x 12 page protectors. I feel like these challenge me creatively, but I always like how they turn out. I wanted to use those adorable cork numbers, so I used a two from this Messy Box and spelled out February. The weather is getting warmer and the sun is setting a lot later here in Phoenix. It has been so wonderful, that I wanted to make a page to highlight the beautiful February weather.
The little 2 x 2 inch plastic cards are so cool! The retro phone was perfect for documenting my time catching up with friends from out of state. They are slightly transparent, so I layered one by just stapling it to a 3 x 3 card. I went with the vintage phone and keyboard print to symbolize my video chats with friends. Documenting the little special moments are always my favorite!
The peaches ink pairs really well with the colors this month. The bright pastels are so pretty. This retro office supplies themed kit was so fun to scrapbook. My February layouts are all about time with family and friends as well as my new garden. I’m hoping to get everything planted before it gets too hot! What are your February layouts about? How are you using those cute 2 x 2 plastic cards? xo. Laura
