Stampin' Up! 2013 Artisan Design Team Entry


Welcome to Day 8 of the 2013 Artisan Entry Blog Hop.  As you visit each blog in this blog hop, you'll see various projects from a handful of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators representing only a small portion of individuals that submitted and entered 10 different projects to Stampin' Up! for the Artisan Design Team contest.  Although we were not selected as one of the Top 20 Finalists, we are all winners in that we took the time and effort to send in our projects knowing that it is some of our best work!  

As an Artisan Design Team hopeful, each blog hop participant submitted 10 projects to Stampin' Up! for the Artisan Design Team contest consisting of the following:

  • 5 – Handmade Cards
  • 3 – Scrapbook Pages
  • 2 – 3D Projects


2013 Artisan Entry Blog Hop – Day 8


Nom, Nom, Nom! 12×12 Scrapbook Page


OK… this might be absolute FAVORITE scrapbook page ever!  This is actually a hybrid digital scrapbook page which means that I created the page using My Digital Studio then added some embellishments afterwards for added texture.  Yesterday, I hinted that this page was for the cat lover…  Well, it does feature the family cat, MaCree, but it also features my son, Caleb!  Caleb just LOVES MaCree and is always trying to hug her and give her kisses.  As it would so happen, on this day MaCree actually patiently let Caleb give her kisses and hugs without running off.  Now, Caleb actually wasn't trying to eat MaCree's ear but when I snapped the photo her ear was in his mouth as he was kissing her.  You would have thought that the cat would run away but she continued to sit there and let Caleb "maul" her.   

The added elements that make this scrapbook page a Hybrid page is that I added the 3/8" Basics Glimmer Brads to the page where you see the digital brads.  Unfortunately, I don't have an actual picture of the Hybrid version you still see the overall effect of this fun, digital scrapbook page.
