I totally spaced...

Thursday, June 16, 2011

Well what do you know... After posting sneak peeks of my application projects for the MLSB DT submission, I totally spaced on showing you the full pictures. It seems like it's been forever since I was able to share the news that I was joining the My Little Shoebox design team and the excitement hasn't worn off yet. So, although it has been a few months now, I did promise that I would share my submission projects once my official welcome was posted on the MLSB blog which you can spy HERE.

I love this photo of my niece... it's just so her, deep in thought and serious. Don't get me wrong, she does have a fun side but she is a deep thinker and this photo captured her perfectly. This layout was created using the beautiful 'Garden Party' collection.


I really do enjoy using my flower punch to recreate the pattern of the paper and using a pop dot add some dimention to the overall look. I've actually chalked the edges this time to give the piece a little bit more of a lift.


I'm loving the MLSB chipboard alphas as they are fantastic to overlap and because they come inside their own die-cut you can draw a perfect outline on around the edge before popping them out.


Another super fun element are the transparent overlay sheets which I've cut out the flowers and butterflies and layered them amongst the other embellishments.


This is my sweet farm girl in amongst her father's super duper crop (that later got flooded out)! I love the colour tonings from the Home Tweet Home collection.






 Now this next project is one that I loved doing but almost sent me blind working on it. I had to put my reading glasses on to do some of the more fiddly bits as it was extra tiny work.



And finally a fun little card with some colourful handstitching. Even managed to do a quilled cloud which is something that I haven't been doing much of lately. Note to self... must get back into the quilling.


So there you have it... my projects. I have lots of work on the go but nothing to share just yet so hopefully it won't be too long before I'm back with another post.

Hope everyone is doing well.

From farm to you...
