Craft Warehouse Assignment 2

This was my second set of assignments for Craft Warehouse Design Team. Love it!
This was a canvas that we had to decorate with a girl theme. I love doing girly things. My scrapbook room is filled with tons of girl paper and flowers and rhinestones and pink ribbon. . .
and 5 boys. My boy layout. I love this kid!
Fun detail
Prima flowers are one of my favorite things. This was a FUN layout to do!
And this was the card I did. No using patterned paper, but use lots of flowers!

Summer Projects

My first Design Team projects for Craft Warehouse
Love Webster's Pages!

WOW! The summer is GONE and I haven't posted in months. I guess having all of the kids home and doing my mom's wedding kept me pretty busy! So, I guess I will post a bunch of summer projects all at once.

May Card Swap

This was my card for my card swap in May. I made the "prescription" and label in Microsoft Word, and filled prescription bottles with m&ms.

Baby's Birthday

I can't believe it. My baby just turned one. We had a party, and I made the invitations and the cake-my 2 favorite parts of planning a party! Invitations


Teacher Projects

I just finished projects for my childrens' teachers. Of course they couldn't agree on gifts, so we made two different ones.
Project #1: Wood Teacher Blocks Project #2: Class Rules Canvas
This was inspired by the Family Rules Canvas that I made for my house. It is a little brighter than I like, but I think it is fitting for and Elementary School classroom.

Scrapbook Room Clock

I made this clock to go in my scrapbook room. I love the red, white and black color combination!

Scrapbook Challenge

For the Craft Warehouse design team, we were paired up with another member and had to give each other a challenge. My challenge was to make my own flowers with the supplies that were sent to me.
I got a piece of sheet music, pearls, crate paper, fabric leaves, buttons, and brads.
I made these really fun flowers out of the sheet music and a couple of patterned papers.
I used the crate paper to make the little flowers and put pearls in the centers.
Some other fun techniques i used:
*I stitched the swirls with a strand of green embroidery floss and a strand of irridescent thread
*Played with my photo in Photoshop to change the color

Sweet little Brag Book

My husband thought it was funny that I call myself a scrapbooker but never have a single picture of my kids with me, so I made this little mini book filled with pictures .
This was another super easy project that used minimal supplies: baseball card holders, carsstock, 2 pieces of patterned paper, and ribbon.
This little book was completed in a couple hours
I think the ribbons are my favorite part . . . . aside from the adorable kids!

15-minute Book

This is just a quick little journal I made. It took less than 15 minutes to put together and just used scraps of paper and ribbons, and a couple of buttons.

Craft Warehouse Design Team

YIPPEE!! I was just selected to be part of Craft Warehouse's Design Team! I am SO Excited! I will get tons of fun product to work with, and I will make displays for stores, and possibly even advertising. These are the projects that I submitted for the Design team.
"Chicks Dig Me" layout.
This is one of my Top 10 favorite projects of all time. The adorable pictures were taken by my good friend, Jaymie Quigley. LOVE IT!

Family Rules
This was done on a 30x36" canvas. Papers were decopauged, and vinyl was used for rules.

I loved this line of paper when I was in the store. It was just red and white, and I added all the color. One of my favorite techniques on this page was using the Cuttlebug directly on the photo. Then I sanded it and added brads and pearls.

Happy Day Card
Baby Announcement
This submission served a dual-purpose. I hadn't gotten any birth announcements made for my youngest, so I made this one and submitted it, and now I have one for his baby book!

Special Day Plate Class

This is the latest class that Celeste and I came up with: Special Occaion Plates. Check out our blog for more info:
