Robyn over at My Pink Stamper is picking a handful of people to be on her design team for the next 6 months. When I saw the call this morning there were over 150 entries already! I have no idea if my work is up to design team par but if I don't give it a shot there's no way I'll ever be on a design team so here goes!!! There are so many talented crafters trying out and I would be so extremely honored and excited if I were chosen (like jumping up and down and screaming excited)! If I'm not chosen, oh well, I absolutely love designing cards and scrapbook pages for myself and my family and friends and I'll at least have a wonderful page of memories added to my scrapbook to show for it. Here are the requirements for the challenge:
The layout is 12x12.
The background patterned paper is Imaginisce's Happy Camper line (Tree Hugger to be exact).
All of the cardstock is from Core'dinations.
The orange paper for the moon and fox is from Basic Grey's Romani line.
I used Chestnut Colorbox ink to distress all of the edges.
The tent was my "lightbulb" idea that got the ball rolling. I used Camping Critters to cut it. It's from a badge feature so I had to guess at sizing to get the size I wanted. I originally had the pic printed at 5x7 but after my first attempt to get the tent big enough realized that I'd have to print the picture smaller. It's a 4x6 pic under the tent and I still had to trim the picture to get it to fit perfectly. I ended up cutting the tent at 10 1/2" (badge setting). I did some fussy cutting to make the entire tent flap up to reveal my picture. I plan to add some journaling to the underside of the tent flap.
The tree stand is also cut from Camping Critters at 6".
I embossed the background with Tim Holtz's Woodgrain embossing folder.
I used Cuttlebug's Tiny Dots for the trees in front.
The fox and layers (I LOVE this sleeping fox image) are cut from Give A Hoot at 1 3/4".
The moon is cut at 3 1/2" from Camping Critters and flipped.
The title is cut from Camping Critters using the sign feature and flips up to reveal 2 more photos. I cut the sign and all layers at 4".
The woodgrain paper on the inside of the sign is from Cosmo Cricket's Mr Campy collection.
The cloud border at the top is just cut freestyle by hand.
The starry night paper strip is also from Imaginisce's Happy Camper line.
The little stars are cut from A Child's Year at 3/4".
I used glitter star brads from Recollections in the center of the cut stars.
The phrase on the tent is from Fundamentals Petite Letter Stickers.
I used twine by American Crafts to hang the sign from a star.
My 2 year old daughter is currently obsessed with flip books so I did all of the flip ups on this layout with her in mind. She loves looking at my layouts, especially is she is in them! The pics are from our recent camping trip. She doesn't look too happy in the pictures but she had fun! She just doesn't like sitting still for pics right now (toddlers!?!).
Whew, I'm exhausted now! Time to sit back and relax and check out all of the other amazingly talented entries! Happy crafting all!
