Scrapbookpal.com Design Team Call

One of my favorite online stores is having a design team call. I am so excited. I bought so much from them at CKC 2008, I am still using some of it LOL! They carry everything that I consider staples in my crafting plus some. The design team call was to create something using products that they carry. I will list those below the post. First let me apologize for the pictures, it is raining and no sun at all here (and none slotted for a few days). I also took them in the frames since I forgot to take them before and well they are in there now.

I made these 12.5 by 12.5 framed art pieces for my friends new baby to be. She is having her second, a little girl. The nursery walls are yellow and the curtains are with cute bugs. I sure hope she likes this even though I made the background paper.

Every single cut is from Cricut Cartridge Walk in my Garden cut at 3.5 inches including all layers. The only thing that I cut by hand is some of the grass, where I whipped out my old school decorative scissors for it.

I cut the purple(3) and green(3) card stock into 4X6 pieces.
Using Fiskars Threading Water punch, punch three of the six pieces.
Using Walk in my Garden cricut cartridge and the Cricut Expression cut all necessary items, bees (two sets), bee hive, snail, snail tag (for baby snail), caterpillar, and lady bugs (flip one image to make them face one another)
Adhere all layers, ink and accent with doodle dots and googly eyes
Cut clouds from WIMG shadow Hycanith at 1.25, 1.5 2 and 2.5 inches,run through Swiss dots cuttlebug folder
Ink with VersaMagic Sea Breeze ink.
Adhere with ATG tape or Zig two way chisel pen.
Cut sun from WIMG shadow sunflower at 2 and 2.5 inches, piece together, add doodle dots and adhere to pages.
Add felt flower, hand cut grass and misc other embellishments as desired.
Ink all edges.
Make background paper using cream card stock and Tim Holtz milled lavender and peeled paint distress inks.
Adhere six pieces to handmade background paper, alternating purple and green backgrounds.
