Spellbinders Round One! Done!

Yeah!!! I made it thru the First Round of the Spellbinders Design Team contest!!! I think it is MORE stressful the second time around! LOL!!! I actually went to town Christmas shopping the day of the announcement... Know what I did? I took my laptop with me so I could be checking!! I had to keep going to the Subway parking lot to check the Spellbinders blog! ROFL! Yep, a little obsessed you could say! :) I SURE was happy to see my name there! :) My hubby thought I was nuts!! :) I guess he's right... ;)
Thank you to EVERYONE who has already commented or touched base to congratulate! It is SUCH an amazing company to design for! I feel so honored to have been on the 2011 team! I would love to have the opportunity to continue on!!! A HUGE congrats to the others on the list!! I am SO excited for you!!!!
That being said, did you SEE the list? There is some AMAZING talent on there!! 11 out of 12 present team members reapplied... they are only taking 12 for the 2012 team!!! There is not guarantee that we will make it back on! We have to compete just as hard as everyone else!! I have until Jan 4th to create something that will blow them away! I have to say... my First round project is one of my very best projects that I've EVER created!!!!! I can't show you yet... but it is pretty nice, if I do say so myself! LOL!
I can however, show you a different project! :) And it's not Christmassy! :)
I created this project for Summer CHA using some gorgeous die templates! I had fun with the lacing and adding some corrugated cardboard for a photo mat! The title is done in Donna's Letters onto corrugated cardboard as well! how fun is that!? For details on what products are used, please see my Spellbinders gallery.

TIP: See that spiral blossom? The entire die template has the scallops. What I did, was fold them in to create the center of the flower, and only allow the outside scallops to be seen! It creates a different look than what we usually see with this die template! How fun!!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you are enjoying your holiday prep!! Time is running out! LOL!

Until next time... Happy Scrapping!

    With so many of last year's team reapplying, us new bees probably don't stand too much chance, but hey, I guess we all give it our best shot.

    Your work is spectacular and always an inspiration!
