MAG guest designer

I was so excited when the girls from MAG Challenge by the Page asked me to be a guest designer for them, truth be told I was also nervous! I was given the Paisley cartridge page 39 to use for my projects. I found this to be a little challenging (hence the word challenge!) the images just didn't seem that fun. Well here is what I came up with I hope you like them.

First project:
Box cut at 9.5” from wrap it up from craft card stock
Background from lacy labels from bo bunny
paper Heart cut at 3” from Paisley
bo bunny paper
Flowers die scrap paper

The pink heart is popped up and is textured with dots. I did some stitching around the box and the heart. The flowers have stickles in the center and the leaves were hand cut. I stuffed the box with crinkle paper and tied the bow with ribbon from Wal-Mart.

Second project:An A2 size card some of the papers are bo bunny I don’t know where the others are from. The mushroom was cut at 3”, the top layer was cut 2 times so it could be popped up. The yellow squiggle line has glossy accents on it. All the edges are inked with brown ink. The ribbon, stamp and punches are from stampin up.
Third project: I took the shadow of the mushroom (4.5”) and welded them together to make the card base. I then cut out the layers of the mushroom at the same size, I cut multiple layers ( the stem 2 times, the top 3 times) so I could pop them up. The bee was on the paper I punched around it and then stamped the sentiment and attached with a brad. The punches are from stampin up, the paper is Basic Grey.

Friend Card

A dear friend in Tennessee (Hi Valeri!) taught me how to stamp and she taught me this great technique, I love how it looks. It is hard to see the little white spots clearly on this, but they were made by dipping the rubber stamp in a little bit of bleach and then stamping it on the paper. It gives it a soft old look. The paper and stamps are stampin up the ribbon is just some I had. The flowers were colored in with pencils. The edges were roughed up and inked.

Monthly Card Holder

This is a monthly card holder I made at my local craft store, they had a cricut swarm and this is what we made. It is made with 12x12 sheets of card stock scored at 6" and then turned and scored at 4", fold it in half then fold up the 4" side to make the pocket. I then added the paper to the top part of the page, mounted the month on card stock and then mounted it to the bottom of the page, rounded the outer edges with a chomper. I am not sure what the cartridge was for the font they had them pre-cut, covered the chipboard glued down the letters punched the holes and put in the wire. Tied on the ribbon and that was it. They had the printed months for us but said you could find them on line.
