New Design Team

I possibly could have shared this a little while ago but thought I would wait until It was my turn to post.  It is so nice of Patricia over at Paper Temptress to have me as one of her new Design Team members.  Paper Temptress has been established for some time and specialises in some beautiful textured papers, gorgeous lustre's and not to mention Mica/Metallic, what is this you ask?  The mica/metallic paperline is perfect for Digital Embossing: print image with an ink jet printer, immediately pour embossing powder over the digital image and heat for an embossed finish.....Works perfectly for sentiments!!  And if you have been a big fan of Hambly and need to replenish stock whilst its still available then you won't want to miss out on not only a great selection but great prices as well.

 I thought I would also share with the Scrapbooking world my DD messy bedroom, as they say revenge is sweet, hopefully now that I have shared  she may be embarrassed enough to keep it  One can only hope.  This was taken when she was about 15, why she feels the need to try on every outfit in her wardrobe before going out is beyond me.   I think she gets that habit off her father, just saying!!!

I have used the following products and had some fun with my Martha Stewarts border punches and Sizzix  die shapes.  I also used my Spellbinders large circle to cut the centre out of the Pink Antique Doily acetate and my Tim Holtz distressing stamp.

Pink Antique Doily 
Pink Sweet Tooth  - these are the cute little Jars I cut out on the RH side of the photo.
Script Tease
Out on A Limb
Home Decor
Brown Bag
Vintage Journal Bits Kraft
My Second Layout is a picture of my DH chilling out on a holiday we had quite a few years ago,  these paper worked beautifully with this pic.  Again I did some punching with my circle punch.  I also made some paint to match the colour in the paper, splattered it onto the page and coloured my chipboard letters.

Products used here are:
Vintage Journal Kraft Bits
Black Vintage Frames
Epic Black Thick Columns
3/4 Graph
Solar White Thick Columns
October Afternoon stickers, Pink Paislee Twine and chipboard alphas.

Thanks for looking hope you have some time to drop by Paper Temptress and check out the specialty papers.
