I thought I would share with you the projects I submitted for the contest. One may look very familiar if you’ve been to Shelli’s new blog *wink*.
Here is my swap card I made for this year. I only made 36 and it took me about 1 week just to complete them. I had to give 20 of them to a scs wow swap, 11 of them were distributed during the artisan award dinner…so really, no major swapping here. I do plan on swapping more in the future.
I think this card is great. It showcases how you can use 4 different sets and make them coordinate with one another. I wanted to use the boat from Nursery Necessities but didn’t want to create a baby card. I love all the dimension. I love the colors.
The next several pictures are my artisan entries. I was asked if I’d do it again. How rewarding of an experience. I have no regrets. Makes all the sleepless nights to get the projects done so worth it. I encourage everyone to give it a try. Start by entering the monthly contests. Learn what it is SU! is looking for (that can be very challenging). Study the world and find inspiration all around you:)
I had to submit 10 projects total: 2 3-D items, 3 pages, and 5 cards.
I’m a SLOW scrapbook maker…lol I spent about 2-3 days on each one. My favorite is the “discover” page. I like how all the pieces fit together, the colors, and the pics.
The above are my 2 3-D items. The first is a Linen Ring Album decorated with chipboard elements, chipboard clipboard, and rubons galore. The second item is wooden blocks in a cute little wooden wagon. I just pictured a little boy pulling the blocks behind him. Very hard to part with.
And lastly, my cards. I wanted to create a variety of styles, colors, and themes.
Thanks for stopping by. I should be back to stamping and sharing real soon.
