Some Scrappy Goodness to start the week....

These are my January projects for my Scrapbooks 'n Stickers Design Team (aka the SNS Entourage!) This LO is done for an example of what you could do with a kit we are giving out at one of the crops. So, Kim sent me one of the kits...papers and embellies and wanted us to do a 12x12 2pg LO and a card w/ the scraps. It's Imagination Project Center City Designs - Murray Hill. You can see it here. And based on my love of pink and black together, you know I love these papers.

I tried to use only what was in the kit. Although, I did add the small piece of pink cardstock (Bazzill) and the Making Memories rub-on letters. Everything else was in the kit. And I am really having a hard time keeping myself from breaking out the Stickles for the centers of these flowers! (and I may still end up doing it!!) But, again, I was trying to stick with the basics that were in the kit.

So, here's what I came up with:
A 2-page spread and it includes 4-4x6 photos and 2- 3x5 photos of

Close up- left side.

Close up - right side.
Lots of hand-cutting on this LO. Time consuming, but so worth it!!! And, it makes use of busy (but beautiful) patterned paper, which can so easily overpower the photos when used in full-sheets.

And here's the card I made with the scraps from the kit. (fyi...I still plenty of other scraps to use on other projects, as well.) I just love that Junkitz Twillz with the eyelets in it! You can just tie ribbons in it and it makes the cutest borders, don't ya think?!

And I broke out my favorite white Signo Uni-ball pen from Stampin' Up! for my doodling and writing on this card. Man I love those pens!!!! Yummy!! (if you need Sherry...SU! demonstrator extraordinaire...and you can order one!)
After hand-cutting this flower, I also used the American Crafts Glitter Gels for outlining of the papers and the flower accents (center and around the petals) to add some sparkle to it. Just wanted it to stand out a little more.

And the last project was a booth display plaque for the Fancy Pants lines we carry in the booth! I was assigned the Holly Jolly line!
Highlights of what I did were the hand made snowman and all the trimmings.... and the movable "snow." I took a page protector and sewed it to the Fancy Pants paper. Then, I left a small opening, added the snow and continued to sew it shut. Then, I adhered the snow strip to the bottom of the plaque. It adds some great sparkle and interest to the plaque. I really love how it turned out!!!
