Altered canvas, layout, card and brag book!!

Hello everyone!

This post make me a little sad......it's my very last assignment for Craft Warehouse. We've come to the end of this term and it's been a great year of creativity and challenges!  I am proud of myself for not quitting and for facing the challenges head on and pouring my heart into all my projects I've submitted! It was really a great experience! Thank you Craft Warehouse for the opportunity, I hope to take part in some future events:)
 I've made some amazing friends!!! thanks ladies!:)

Ok, nuff' of the mushy stuff!

So, this assignment at the beginning of our move and I was able to complete, send in my projects by the deadline, but I didn't have time to edit and post my videos for them as soon as I was done...The due date was June 30th, I was done with editing by July 26th or so and just now able to upload them last night...so I apologize that I'm late, but nevertheless, I have it now and it's aired on Youtube with their tuts!

 This assignment was a very different one, we had a mixture of items/products in our box that we had to use. I was able to come up with projects I'm happy with!

Because these projects were so different, I decided to create 3 separate videos for them. 
I added them at the end of my post!

*******  *******  *******
1st project:
 An altered canvas highlighting a foam stamp set by "Creative Cafe" 
which was a 4"  alphabet set! Easy to use and easy to clean in my opinion! Also some tiny wood stars from "Studio Calico", burlap ribbon, Tim Holtz numeral plaques, burlap hearts, clothespins, twine, and 2 canvas flowers from "Canvas Corp"!



Here's the video for this project! Enjoy!!:)

2nd project was a LO (layout)! I was given some Disney paper of "The Princesses", Ariel, Jasmine and Cinderella! I have to say, this was hard for me to use as, 1, Anna was not a very girly girl and didn't like pink nor did she like to wear anything with the Princesses on it...she was a Winnie the Pooh fanatic! LoL But I made it work into a "non-themey" LO, over-all, I did it and I love it!


I went with my 2nd thought of paper for the background. Using the yellow card stock from American Crafts (Craft Warehouse has sooo many colors to choose from!) I really love the texture this card stock has on 1 side. But I used a strip to hide "Sebastian" the lobster in the little gazebo. I also created a sunrise with the same yellow card stock with some of the designer paper to hide "Ariel" sitting by a fountain! And then....I used a gorgeous picture of Anan from her 14th birthday and gave her that title...well, cuz it's true!


I fussy cut floral wreaths from 2 of the paper collections to frame Anna's picture... 
OMG, love this part the most I think! It was required for me to 
incorporate some washi tape in there too! 
These little pink stripped flags off either side of her picture was taped onto the 
yellow card stock and cut out!

Here's the video for my Anna's Layout! Enjoy!

The 3rd project was our "Designer's Choice" one...meaning I could make 
anything I wanted with this paper collection. 
I was given "Dearest" a mini theme paper kit by Echo Park!
So, I decided to make a little cute brag book and a card! LOVE these!  I made these on a whim too, just took me a couple hours!!...I cut some strips of paper and it just came together!! :) I Love when I have these moments...it isn't often I tell you! LOL!!
....and my card:)
seriously, cute and simple right!!?
Here is the last video for this project, enjoy!!



I had so much fun on this team and we were all so sad to see it end! We learned a lot from each other and always lifted each other up. It was awesome to see the other ladies work before the world did, it was so inspiring for me! 
Thanks Gina, Jen, Stephanie, Julie, Cara, Amanda, Jennifer, Andrea, Mendi and Michelle!!! I'll miss you girls, but I'll peek into your blogs every now and then!

If you'll be coming through the beautiful Pacific Northwest at anytime, check the site and see the "stores" list and stop by a Craft Warehouse! 
 Thanks for coming over everyone!
xo, Jules:)
