CMK DT Call application

A Design Team Call was posted last week at Create My Keepsake. The application process is pretty cool, I think. The interested applicants are to put together a kit and create 2-3 (or more!) projects and then post the kit and our completed projects on our blog.

So here it is.

This is the kit I created:



3 cardstock: blue, green & white Bazzill
6 patterned papers: 4 Basic Grey (Urban Prairie), 1 Jenni Bowlin and 1 Creative Imaginations
1 alpha: Doodlebug glitter stickers
1 rub-ons: Jenni Bowlin
bling/brads/buttons: I chose pink, green, blue and white buttons from Autumn Leaves and Basic Grey
chipboard/rubber charms/flowers: 2 green embroidered flowers (not sure of the manufacturer.)
stickers/ die-cut shapes/ journaling cards: Creative Imaginations stickers and October Afternoon journaling cards
ribbon/trim: Bazzill pom-pom ribbon in Parakeet
I also added some white glitter and some blue & green fabric to my kit.

And here's what I created with it:

Three layouts:

The Places We Go:







I made a pocket behind the title and cut out the pattern of the Basic Grey pp and attached it to a journaling card. When the journaling is tucked in, it blends in perfectly with the background pp.





You Shine:










My Style:




And three cards:

You are just so tweet:



Hi!:



Happy Birthday:



I've never used glitter on a scrapbook page before and thought that I would challenge myself to try something new with my kit. Also, adding fabric was something I don't normally do, but had lots of fun working with, trying to come up with new ideas for it (flowers, trim, etc.)

Thanks for looking (& wish me luck!)
