Hi Ya'll! I have some Really Exciting news to share with you today!
I'm on a NEW Design Team! Woo Hoo!
It's called Stuck on U Sketches Die Cuts and today is the Debut!
I sure hope you hop on over and check it out! They have challenges every other week and a chance to win some really great prizes! The only stipulation for the Die Cut challenges is to use Die Cuts, they are still going to be doing the Sketch challenges so make sure to check those out also! Now you can use store bought Die Cuts but the trick here is to get the most out of your Die Cut Machines. Now I LOVE my Cricut and use it all the time (actually I have a hard time creating without it, lol) Well enough about all the technical stuff, heck just hop on over to Stuck on U Sketches and check them out! Now onto my Design Team Debut Layout!
Now the challenge for the next 2 weeks is
Now interpret that any way you wish! You can use the word, theme, toys or activity or anything that you can come up with! Remember it's a challenge so have fun with it!
Well my project is a Fun day at the "PLAY"Ground! I've had these pics of McCade when he was 2 yrs. old and he loved to go to the park down the street. It was when we were still living in Las Vegas and they had some of the nicest parks there and we lived right down the street so it was within walking distance so it was almost a daily thing. And you sure can tell by his face how much fun he was having, lol! Well of course I had to use a swing set and used the one from Pop-Up Neighborhood (also the inspiration to enter the Cricut Circle challenge) and cut it @ 8". Then because I made it so big I was having a hard time getting all the pics on the page so I had to add a swing of my own! So I added some grommets and some jump rings and added a couple more pics (sort of a mini flip book?) Now the seats aren't on the cart, I hand cut those myself.
Here's a close up of the Left side of the page, the sun is from Po-Up Neighborhood also cut @ 3", The grass is also on PUN and cut @ 3 3/8" (one side is flipped and the grass in the background is stretched to make a bigger mound) Having Fun and Play is off the Playtime Cartridge and so is the Adorable little Boy (doesn't he look just like McCade, lol)
Here's a close up of the Right side of the page. I had to add this adorable pic of the little man on the slide (he sure was fearless then, lol) The slide is from the Locker Talk Cartridge and cut @ 5" and Ground and some of the other words are from the Lyrical Letters cartridge. I also have a Journaling tag slide in behind the pic (you can sort of see it, has a yellow ribbon on it to pull it in and out. Also added some screw looking brads to hold the swing set together, (lol) and of course had to do some shading and popping for some depth and dimension. And for a little extra touch had to add some doodling with a White Jelly Roll pen!
Here's a close up of the pages and how there are more then just one "Swing"!
And and even closer look at the grommets and jump rings!
Now my Card Stock is Colorbok and the background cloud paper is some O L D-er DCWV paper.
Well I sure hope you stop by over at Stuck on U Sketches and check it out, the Design Team did some Amazing projects and there is definetly some amazing talent over there (Holy WOW is all I can say), Lots of Inspiration, So come on, why don't you go ahead and enter the challenge, just Remember "PLAY" and come along and "PLAY" with us, LOL!!! Don't forget to leave a comment and if you like you can even tell them Theresa Sent You!
I'm also entering this in the monthly Cricut challenge, it's to do a scene using at least 2 cricut cuts and the inspiration was to use the Pop Up Neighborhood cart so I think this qualifies to enter don't you think, lol!
Well you have a great weekend and I'll be filling you in soon on an update on how Eddie is doing (if your wondering who Eddie is, he is our Ornery Adorable Mule!)
