First Design Team Application

Laura and Kazan over at 2 Sketches 4 You are currently looking for a design team.  Though I have seen a couple design team applications on the internet lately, I had yet to apply for one.  Some where just too far away (required me to drive about an hour from here) and some just were right for me (more scrapping, not so much card making) but this one was just right.  So, here are the cards I made for their sketches.

This first card I made for Kazan's sketch.  I won't bore you with all the details, but I will just like some things about this card that are a bit different.  The pink ribbon at the top is actually tied into the card.  I punched holes in the card and tied it.  I think this gives a nice and different effect.  The ribbon along the bottom has little pieces of ribbon tied to it.  I actually took this off of a package I had gotten, the ribbon had lots of kinks in it so I cut it into small pieces.  I'm all about reusing.  
This second card was made for Laura's sketch.  The heart is actually chipboard.  I covered it with paper and punched two holes in it to make it look like a giant button.  I used the other little buttons to repeat the idea.  Also, I asked my friend Jenny of JennyBunnyCreations to make me these ADORABLE hat pins to use on my cards.  Isn't it lovely?  You can't really see it, but there's a little clear bead up top and then below that, there's a pink bead with beautiful bead caps.  
So, wish me luck!  Hopefully, I can finally start designing for someone else.  That would be awesome.  Maybe then, more people (namely my husband) will start believing that I can actually make a living out of my paper crafts.


  1. Bright and beautiful!


    I love card sketches. I can play with sketches all day if I had the time.


  2. I love that you are reusing materials! They are very pretty - much luck to you!

  3. These are just beautiful; I wish you the best of luck!
