VSC September Challenge # 15

Hello September

Can you believe that the summer is just about over and in New  York school starts in about a week. 

Our lil one is going to BIG school ( Kindergarten HERE we come ) and I'm more nerves then she is. Therefore with back school being the big event in Septemer my design team project for V's Sweet Ideas Challenge will be centered around that. 

Challenge details
Theme : Washi tape
Sponsor : My Creative Spot
Prize : A stamp set
Deadline: September 30th 2013

Now onto my project. I love washi tape and I'm sure there are tons of crafters who love to use and collect washi tape. I often like to come up with different ways to use my washi tape. Therefore I have used washi tape to alter some school supplies. I also created a tag. Then at the bottom of the post I have included some other back to school preparation photos. 


Project details 
Thick washi on the spine of the notebooks (gray chevron - Vs Sweetideas shop) , washi on the pencils & pencil case box ( neon pink strip - Vs Sweetideas ) , washi label inside of the soft pencil case and on the folder.

A washi tape TIP use glossy accents to make your washi tape design last longer. Especially when your using it on things beside paper.
Check out V's washi tape store. She has a ton of amazing different shapes and patterns.

I wanted to create a tag to be used in back to school pictures and for project life. The ruler washi is from Vs Sweetideas Shop. Finally used the Doc Mcstuffin fabric ribbon.

Uniforms are all folded and ready for the new school year. I have used a bin I got from the dollar store to keep her school tights and socks in one place. 

The main supply is the bookbag. This book bag has a matching lunch bag (not in this picture). This bookbag is from the Disney Store and it has tons of pockets ( which I love). 

Thanks for stopping by, check out the other DT projects and enter the challenge.

PaperShelter digi challenge #113

Hello Everyone,

I hope you all had a fabulous Memorial Day weekend. I went away with some of the family this weekend to DC and we had a blast.

During the start of the road trip I used a paper shelter image I recently colored on a project for the paper shelter challenge #113 "charming".

Have you ever color up a image that you love sooo much and just can't give it away? I have, I have.

I used the coffee break digi image (http://www.thepapershelter.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=1&products_id=283 )
I used the image for the cover of my about me journal/calendar/to do list. I picked the cross charm because without God nothing is possible. I also love the quote on the front of the binder, so I wanted to make sure I didn't cover it up.

Details: Gray chevron washi from V's sweet ideas, bling mesh, twine, washi from recollections , cross charm, fine glitter, copic marker

Well I hope you guys like my project, I'm entering it into the ( http://thepapershelter.blogspot.com/2013/05/challenge-113-charming.html )

VSC Challenge # 9

Hello March

I'm actually happy that Feburay is over. Feburay was a long month for me and I could really use a new start. I hope your all ready for a sweet start this March.

This Challenge I created two cards using the same image from this month's sponsor.

Theme: Masculine projects
Sponsor: Bugaboo images
Your task: Create a masculine card or project.
Prize: Bugaboo images
Deadline: You have the full month of March.

Challenge details: Masculine cards are fun cause they are normally a challenge for me and I love a good challenge. I thought this candy jar would be fun to color. I colored up this image with my Copic markers I added from glossy acents, glitter, stickels and puff paint to add some more fun to the image.
I created two gate fold cards one girlie and the other masculine.

Masculine Birthday Card

I used darker colors when coloring the image and no glitter. Used dark green and gray cardstock. I also used some Heidi Swapp color shine (tinsel and teal).

Girlie Birthday Card
I poured on the glitter with this card. I used purples and grays. The inside of this card is featuring a My Creative Time jar die.
If you have any questions just let me know.
For more details on the challenge go to V's sweet ideas challenge blog.
As check out the other DT projects.
