Design Team Call

Well everyone I decided to get brave and have a go at entering a design team first ever!! Talk about nervous.....I have butterflies the size of birds fluttering around in my tummy.....but here goes!!

Discount Paper Crafts are having a Design Team Call, they are after an Altered Project Designer along with a cardmaker for their Team.  Please go  take a look at their Etsy store and also their facebook page

Soooooooooo I have submitted this cute little shabby chic collection.....

This is an everyday paper of the small sized coffee cups from McDonalds actually.  I removed the outer covering and used it as a template to cut my own.  I have used Kaisercraft "Precious Moments" Collection pad.  This is a huge pad full of really shabby chic and pretty pink papers.  I love it so much that I have used it through out the whole of my projects.   The doily that you see on the lid is one that I cut with my cricut from an SVG file.  The flowers are from a craft wholesaler down here in Australia.  They are mulberry paper flowers.  The large gardenia that you can see in the above images is one that I have sprayed with my homemade glimmermists and then twisted it whilst it was still damp.  I wanted just a little more height and dimension.  The name plate is one that I have also cut on my cricut and added some Kindyglitz - Chrystalline to it...I also did this to the doily.

This cute little spool has been painted with Kaisercrafts "Candy" pink acrylic paint.  I then sandwiched a layer of crackle medium and added a top coat of "Titanium White" acrylic paint.  Once all this dried a tore some prety pink fabric into strips and wrapped it around the centre.  I then added some mulberry paper roses; one of my stickpins; some pearl trim; tiny white trim; a sticker from the K&Company "Hannah" collection and then finally a small butterfly punch out.

These are some wooden clothespins....we used to call them dolly pegs when I was a kid!  I have painted them in the same fashion as the spool and used a small rolled ribbon rose that is backed with some pink organza ribbon.  These were super fast to work on and I had so much fun making them that I am going to do some more for stocking fillers this year!

So up above and down below lol :D is my last little altered item and it is a small paperbag.  It is one that I received in a RAK from Elsa....I have used more of those beautiful papers from Kaisercraft.  I added some shabby chic-ish stickpins to the front pocket.......

 and  I created this cute little mini clipboard to go inside the bag.

More of them can be seen at youtube .... 

Wish me luck??  This is so nerve wrecking!!
