Scrapbook Express, here I come!

I have some exciting news to share, I am back on Scrapbook Express Design Team!
I am really happy. First of all, Scrapbook Express is an awesome online store with great products and fabulous service. Secondly, they have a great message board. If you are looking for an online place to hang out, with fun challenges, great scrapbooking inspiration and friendly people, you should check here. I would love to see my blog friends joining me!

I will share what I made for the DT call. I submitted a layout and card based on this sketch .The whole layout is made with Bo Bunnny Barefoot and Bliss papers and chipboard.
I mixed yellow metallic acrylic paint with sparkle texture effect medium and stamped the circles using 3 different drinking glasses. I think it gave nice effect of sparkling sand.

The chipboard letters were inked and then covered with glimmer mist.

Supplies: patterned paper, chipboard, jewels (Bo Bunny), chipboard letters (Basic Grey), letter stickers (Bella Blvd), paint, sparkle texture (Martha Stewart)

The card is based on the same sketch. I used flowers instead of pictures and butterflies instead of circles. The flowers are made from folded Heidi Swapp silk flowers (remember them?). The butterflies are covered with matte accents. The mat with punched border is raised with pop-dots. This card is bulky but I like how it turned out. Special card for special occasion.

Supplies: patterned paper (Pink Paisley, My Mind's Eye), flowers (Heidi Swapp), tag and leaf die-cuts (My Mind's Eye), floss (Bazzill Basics), border punch (Martha Stewart), butterfly punch (Martha Stewart), matte accents (Ranger), pearls (Kaiser Crafts), alphabet dies (Lifestyle Crafts)

I got an email today with more exciting news, but that will have to wait for another post.
