Back 2 School + giveaway winner!

Yes, school's back in session and I've completed my annual "1st Day" layout:



































Had fun using little bits & pieces of my favorite summer CHA buys so far...in love with these Jenni Bowlin gold rub-ons & doily sequins!  And this new star "Balzer Bits" mask was the perfect "gold star" for my back-to-school theme. 



























Gold pigment ink + embossing powder from Lindy's in King Midas Gold.  Love it!




























Now on to the giveaway...thanks to all those who left some love for my Laina Lamb Design projects!

Random.org says the winner is...#4!

These are a few of My Favorite Things...

I was thrilled to be asked by the amazing Laina Lamb to design some projects using her stamps & dies from My Favorite Things.

What a talent she has for design...I love her bold imagery, fabulous font choices, modern sentiments, and versatile dies!

Here is my first layout:



































I love the long chevron stamp, and the feathers, cut in gold vellum, turned out so lovely!


Supplies Used:


Up next:


The notebook paper die is so fun, and the words make a great title+accent, cut from the red-orange vellum.

Supplies Used:


Lastly, a card, using the negative-space from the notebook die, and washi-cut feathers.

Supplies Used:

Feather & Arrows Die-namics

Aren't her products so awesome?!  In honor of that awesomeness, I've got a giveaway for you!
