Covention Swaps 12 x 12 group 1

Sorry I’ve been missing in action we’ve had internet problems and I’ve had camera issues, but I’m back and with some fabulous swaps form convention. The last group I did was 12 x 12 pages. There were actually two group for this one. Because there are so many I’m going to break them up in 4 groups. So enjoy!

There is no particular order here and I will try and let you know who did each one (hopefully they are all marked.)  Thanks again to everyone who participated all of the pages are great.   I’ve already used some for Club and I’m looking forward to adding pictures to them.

First up is mine.  I used the awesome Awash with Flowers Set.  It’s hard to tell but the flowers are done with a fun technique that gives you a water color look even though it’s a solid stamp.

This page is so fun and so cute.  In fact I used it for club last month.  With just one change.  Her cute sand is actually made with real sand paper.  I created it with the awesome log cabin spray.  I just love all the fun punch art on this page as well.  It was created by Natalie Cottle.

#119871 3/16″ Corner $6.95

Can I say I’m in love.  This page is adorable.  It was made by Melanie Williams and she would say it’s a little Cheese.  I would have to agree.  The cheese is so cute I love how easy it is to make just using all of our different circle punches.  Plus doesn’t the hamburger just look good enough to eat.  She even added texture to the bun by using the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder.

#117335 Perfect Polka Dots $7.95

On the Grill
#116970 Wood $23.95
#120474 Clear $17.95

The last fun page for today was created by Deanne Henderson.  I love how simple it is yet very I catching.  There’s so much detail in all the flowers.  Off course they were created with our great punches again.  What you can’t see very well is the fun Rhinestones in the center of the small flowers.  With 150 per package it’s so easy to add fun bling to your page.

May Club- DSP

May club was lots of fun.  We focused on the Designer Series Paper promotion that is going on this month.  The deal is buy 3 get on free on any of our Designer Series Paper, Designer Prints Paper and Textured Card-stock.  I love our DSP so I’m really excited about this promotion.  It ends May 31st so there is still time for you to get in on this great  promotion.

May '09 ButerflyThe paper that I chose to showcase is the the Walk in the Park from the Occasions Mini Catalog.  I used the layout design from page 6 of the mini catalog as my inspiration.  Because I was making a two page layout I actually split the design across the two pages.  I wanted to use the Textured card-stock so I used it as the pieces that were punched.  It adds a nice texture to the page.  Both the large butterfly and the forever card-stock were cut out with the big shot.

May '09 Buterfly FriendI also created a card that matched the theme from the pages.  Remember that when you are using DSPyou can use it as just an accent on your page or card.  You don’t need to make the entire project out of it.  One of my favorite parts is how fun the butterfly looks under the ribbon.  You may have noticed the words in the oval.  The original saying is thank you.  We used the markers to color just the edge and the butterfly.  Then we used “Friend” from Fundamental Phrases to add the word.  This technique is great to make a variety of different cards with any saying that you want.

 

 

May '09 Buterfly Die CutThis last card was a design that I cased from a card we made at Amy’s meeting last month.  I loved the layout and thought it would work great with the DSP.  As you can see I’ve only used the DSP for the butterfly and the small background pieces behind it.  Because the DSP is thin you can actually corner round all three of the small strips at the same time.

April Club- Just Beachy

April '09 FishThis post is a little late, but I thought you would like to see the fun projects we did for club in April.  I featured the fun Just Beachy set from the mini catalog and showed them how to do the cracked Glass technique.  I love this technique it looks so cool and is actually really easy to do.I got this fun idea from Kelly.  You can check out her blog here:   http://stampinparadise.blogspot.com.  I changed it a bit. 

 

 

April '09 Fish Close UpI thought if you are really different than maybe you would be a different color.  I don’t know if you noticed it but this fish is the only one in the set that goes the other way.  Here is a close up of the cracked glass.

April '09 BeachHere is the scrapbook page that I came up with using the card as my inspiration.  I love how simple it is, but it has just a fun summer feel.  We colored the fish with the watercolor wonder crayons and a aqua painter.

April '09 B-dayThis is the second card that my card group made.  I totally cased it from a blog, I tried to find it again so I could tell you who, but I couldn’t.  I changed the saying in the center, but the rest is basically like hers.  I thought it was a really cute card.  The size is actually 5×5 go go in our 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 envelops.  The fish are punched out with the 1 1/4″ Square Punch and then sponged with the pacific point.

 

April '09 B-day InsideWe stamped Happy Birthday from the $10.00 and under page on the inside.  Of course we used Whisper White craft in so that it would show up.

 

Matchbox Thank You BoxesSince I had also just got the Matchbox die of course we had to try that out as well.  Here is our fun projects using the match box die and the designer series paper from the mini catalog Walk in the Park.
