I cranked out 11 sets like this (well, the chipboard animal is different on each one) but am only sharing 2 on the blog (who needs to see 11 of the same thing?).

I really like the new K&Co Kazoo line (much more than the new Valentine themed papers) and bought the paper last weekend.  I couldn’t resist buying a package of the chipboard shapes either.  Those clever marketing people HAVE to stop packaging things in animal-shaped containers!

I wasn’t sure what I was going to do with the chipboard but there was a sheet of die-cuts in the paper pad and I was determined that I would use them for something (usually the stickers/die cuts in any collection I buy get ignored) so I used them to make some 4X4″ Valentine cards and also did some matching notepads.

Here’s a shot of the Lion set and the Robot set (those were my favourite chipboard shapes):

I had a little trouble with the light in these pictures but you can see that the paper is very cheerful!  I think the paper on the cards is actually from the Valentine pad – it’s the flip side of a pattern with very busy hearts on it.  The sentiment/image on each card was made by cutting down the die cuts in the Kazoo pad (They were like mini valentine’s with To/From on them – the kind we used to give out in school).

Incidentally, there are lots of patterns in the Kazoo collection that are not specific to Valentine’s Day. (and you’ll be seeing some of them on cards very soon!)  I’m hoping to find a smaller pad of the paper but my M’s only had the 12X12.

Enjoy your weekend!
