Happy Saturday!! My name is Michele and I am very excited to introduce myself as a new member of the Scrappy Chic design team. I am honored to be on this team in the company of some very talented ladies!!
This is the team (that’s me on the left then Terri, Lanette and Angela):
For our tryout we had to create three layouts. I would like to share mine with you along with the criteria for each.
Layout #1: Titled ‘Merry’ We had to use on solid paper and describe the innovative ways we did. I stamped backgrounds on solid cardstock and did some sanding. Layout #2: Titled ‘4th Annual Light the Night’ We were asked to use at least 5 manufacturers on our layout, I used Echo Park, Carta Bella, MME, Teresa Collins, Bo Bunny, Twinery, Tattered Angels, Maya Road, Lush. Layout #3: Titled ‘Disney Princesses on Ice’ For this last layout we were asked to use primarily one manufacturer, mine was MME. The we had to describe our favorite techniques that we used, mine were: paper distressing with ink and a distressing tool and heat embossing. We could also submit an altered project. For this there were no requirements or limits we just had to list techniques and products. Project #4: Altered Mousetraps on magnetic board Textured tarnished metal technique using hot glue and aluminum foil. Mod Podge, crackle paint-clear rock candy, Distress Ink-Walnut Stain Altered mousetraps using Distress Stain-Broken China and Brushed Pewter, Fancy Pants Blissful Blizzard paper pack and the white corrugated cardboard, Fancy Pants velvet ribbon and lace, MM Celery ribbon, Lifestyles nesting circle dies, 12 days of X-mas gems, MM paper reverie gems, Jillibean trim, Ranger liquid pearls, Ranger Stickles-Crystal, MME Stella and Rose Hattie trim, various Tim Holtz dies, Martha Stewart snowflake punch, velvet ribbon and burlap twine. I am looking forward to working with the design team and all the lovely people over at Scrappy Chic!! Thanks for stopping by and I hope to see you around the crop rooms soon!!
