Cookin' Up Creations Design Team Share (March)

Over at Cookin' Up Creations we've been doing Pinterest inspired challenges. The DT has come up with some real great challenges for everyone. I wanted to share the challenges I can up with this month.

On Friday 3/8 - Stitches & Paint - I wanted to inspire everyone with the challenge of using paint and stitching on a layout. I was inspired by a layout that Melinda Spinka (see below) created & posted on Pinterest.
Here is the layout I created**** This layout was chosen to be Layout of The Week!***

On Saturday 3/16/13 - Diamonds - I challenged everyone to use the sketch below to create a project. Along with some Bling, Black & White(anything goes).

My layout:


On Sunday 3/24 - When Skies are Gray - I challenge everyone to use two things 1. Yellow and Gray color combo. 2. Sunshine (rays or the word itself -- as an example a Pinterest layout for inspiration).

Here is my layout:

Layout Pinspiration *** Please note that I did not give credited to the original creator of this layout because I can't find her name nor can I find it on Pinterest. I will post it as soon as I can find out her name. She deserved her credit! **** Found her name it's Stephanie Baxter****

I hope to play along with all of the Design Team over at Cookin' Up Creations.

So, as I mentioned earlier I haven't posted in a while. I really wanted to share so work I did for CUC DT. January's Theme was In with New, Out with the Old.

 Here are my layouts for January.

Long Time No Share

I know it's been a long time since I've blogged. Life has really thrown one at us these past few months. We're trying to get ourselves together. We're getting there. Now that doesn't mean I haven't been scrapping. I have just not posting here. I know that's bad. I will be adding a some posts over the next few days to show some work I've made. Most for Cookin' Up Creations design team.

Cookin' Up Creations Design Team Work Share

I recently challenged the group on Cookin' Up Creations to create a project using a few of their older supplies and mix in a few new ones. The challenge A Little Bit if This & That

For this challenge I had them use the following items to create their project.
Punches, Decorative Scissors, Metal Clip, Vellum &Textured paper. Then I had them alter their punched shapes.

You can use this in any combination. Layer it up and have fun with your old stash . Mix it up with  the new papers and embellishments and you'll be so surprised how good it will look. 

Here is the layout I created for the challenge. I used Fiskars Threading Water border punch and a small hand heart punch from Provo Craft to create a new border to fit my theme. I also used pattern, colored & plain vellum from my stash.

Close up of the new border I created for my photo mats which I created to look like Polaroids
