Jodie from Arty Pants set another challenging challenge for the DT again. LOL....that's why they're called challenges. This time....we were only allowed to use cardstock and art mediums (paint, ink, pen etc)....no embellishments at all. no brads, no eyelets, no ribbons....but the bit that had me in tears was no chipboard!!! Gosh....it made me realise that I am soo reliant on my chipboards....chipboard alphas for my title, chipboard embellishments covered with PP......it was good to think outside the square and go back to basics and create a layout.....not just a layout....but being a DT challenge...the added pressure was on to create a wow layout. I love the end result and my little batboy has declared this his favourite layout. He was pretty sad when we dropped it off at arty pants...but on the other hand....pleased as punch that it will be on display in the store.
Ok....this summer layout is the only layout I have done for November EDM album!! So I am officially two layouts behind....so 5 to churn out this month!! Why am I late? Because I found it soo hard to get hold of Carolee's creations papers/rub ons etc....and had to wait till Scrap Pile got them in. And fabulous Cass from Scrap Pile also got some of the plain SEI cardstock in! With EDM, it's kind of frustrating that we can't use bazzill if we want to comply with the 80% sponsor products......so I am absolutely in happy land now that I have some plain SEI cardstock to work with.
I had lots of fun with this layout. Did this during the crop at my place on Saturday and I asked for some of Mich's paper and with two co-ordinating sheets.....we both got a layout done each. Onsert product this month are the Carolee's Creations rub ons....on this layout....I added the words enjoy on the photo and the colourful blocks on the page corners.
Ok...now....my post title did say I had some news. It is big news to me....exciting news...fabulous news. This morning I got selected to be part of a kit club design team!!! I am now DT on One Page at a Time.
I am absolutely reeling with joy that Capella and Toni have picked me to be on their team ....I absolutely adore their style and their kits which are bright, funky and fun. The whole DT is fabulously talented and I'm really looking forward to getting to know the team and working with the kits.
