Scrap It Girl

Kimberly from Scrap It Girl asked me to join her Design Team. I didn't have to think twice because first of all I am honored that someone thinks my projects are worth sharing, secondly I love participating in the challenges and finally, Kimberly is from Wisconsin and I love love love connecting with local scrappers!

Today Kimberly posted her first challenge for 2012 - in honor of the coming CHA trade show she asks to create a project using items that start with "C", "H" and "A".
"A" was easy for me. Gorgeous Authentique papers were begging me to put them to good use. I  picked the Blissful collection with beautiful greys and yellows to match Lila's ice skating dress. This picture was taken at ISI Synchronized Championships in Chicago last April. For "H" I picked some Heidi Swapp Ir-ressit-ible chips and misted them with grape Clearsnap Smooch Spritz. That will be "C".

  Supplies: patterned paper (Authentique, Bo Bunny), tags (Authentique), ir-ressitable chips (Heidi Swapp for Tattered Angels), smooch spritz (Clearsnap), daisies (Martha Stewart), jewels (Michaels), jewel swirls (Recollections)

I rolled the edges of the paper and added embellishments that have connection to the dress and to the program music. Their music was a collection of bicycle songs including "Bicycle built for two" and Queen's "Bicycle race"  The swirls on the dress are not black but dark purple. I added few daisies to match the daisies on the dress and a small bicycle tag to remind Lila about the music.

I am going to frame it for Lila's room. Should I made more for each skating season?? Hmmm, maybe.

I also made a card with same supplies. It is based on the Authentique card sketch. I didn't add a sentiment to the card, I will stamp it inside when I will decided who is the recipient.

Supplies: patterned paper (Authentique), ir-resistable chips (Heidi Swapp for Tattered Angles), smooch spritz (Clearsnap), glimmer mist (Tattered Angles), corner border punch (Fiskars), ribbon

I hope you will check what other girls on the team made for this challenge and join us!
