American Crafts Design Team Tryout Project

I made it. I completed all the pieces I need to compete in the American Crafts Design Team Contest. This last project was inspired by all the different frames I kept seeing in the photos and movies from CHA. The hanging paper globes and hearts are inspired by Hambly. All of the patterned paper is by American Crafts as well as the Thickers and several of the ribbons. The clothes pins and wire are bought at

I am almost done. Yeah! I have a fun project planned next so I better get started or I will be up really late tonight. Midnight oil is somtimes good though. It makes me more creative. In the long run it really doesn't matter. I enjoy the creativeness of making things from a set of products to enter these contests. :)

This page was made from American Crafts items. All papers except the brown background and Journal Strips are American Crafts. The Flair button, Blue Banner (except fabric), and the felt flowers are also American Crafts.


Pages From My Anniversary Trip to Seattle

I have a very loving husband that didn't mind me scrapbooking on our anniversary trip this last week. Rocket Age by October Afternoon is one of my new favorite lines. It was so much fun to work with.

This layout took longer than usual because I wanted to make sure the love Josh showed to me with his little hearts showed through my page. I think it turned out really well. All papers are American Crafts with the Exception of the journal spot which is October Afternoon. The embellishment hearts are made by Joshua with a Martha Stewart Punch and the Flare and brad was made by American Crafts. I used my sewing machine to stitch all the papers together.


American Crafts Design Team Tryout Card

Having lots of fun creating projects with American Crafts lines. For this tryout we need two layouts, a card, and a project. So I started with the card. :)


Craft Warehouse Assignment #6- Part 3

This project is a Designers choice. I decided to make a mini album from the Cosmo Cricket papers and photos of things Ellie loves at six. I used Cosmo Cricket papers, buttons, cardstock, Dark Brown chalk ink, fabric, ribbon, tiny type and lots of glue. I sanded down the game pieces to paint them brown with the chalk ink pad to avoid the look of a Christmas layout.
