Design Team Reveal -- October 25

Today is the last of our design team reveals for this month's sponsors -- Punky Sprouts, Whisker Graphics, and Unity Stamp Company. I think I can speak for all of us when I say that we have thoroughly enjoyed using the wonderful products so generously provided by these companies.

Let's start off this week with Sarah's adorable layout -- check out her amazing banner!

For this layout I used the Divine Twine to make a super simple banner. I just punched and inked the 1" circles, folded them over the twine and secured with a glue dot. I then tied little bows and glued them to the ends. 

Layout features my baby sister Jessica and her son AJ. 

And next we have a beautiful layout created by Shawna -- so bright and fun!

For this layout i used the little bird stamp and the yellow bakers twine. Even though i messed up a little with my stamping i actually like the distressed, imperfect feel it gives the layout.

Tamara takes her turn with two fun, creative cards. 

This first card was created using the Fizzy Feelings stamp set from Unity Stamp Co.
I used stickles to give it a little sparkle.

This next card was designed using Whisker Graphics Divine Twine yellow and orange.

Next is Sandy's fabulous album -- you're sure to flip over this one!

This week's project was sooo fun to me. I loved working with the Punky Sprouts Album. I was given the Savvy Sprout Album to work with and it was perfect for this Halloween Album. Now that I have the album completed, I just have to add my pictures, which I will get when the kids dress up. I hope you enjoy this as much as I do:

There are several more fabulous pages! Be sure to check them out on the Cookin' Up Creations forum
Tabitha also has some beautiful cards for us. 

This week I created two cards. i used the Whiskers Graphics Divine Twine. Can I just say I am addicted to this stuff. I love using for everything,  so great to work with and it comes in so many colors to choose from.

And here is Nordica's lovely project:

This week I had the opportunity to make an altered item. I chose to alter a full size clip board to give to one of my sons' teachers as a Christmas present. I had such a good time working with the fun and funky Divine Twine by Whisker Graphics, using it to stitch on this My Minds Eye paper from my stash! For the "Bliss" I used a stitch template to mark the paper where I wanted my title to be and then I used a cross stitch/embroidery needle to stitch with the yellow Divine Twine. Along the bottom I punched the paper with a border punch and used the same size needle to thread the orange Divine Twine through the holes made by the border punch. The Divine Twine was easy to work with and added such a cool dimensional texture! I also added the "sweet' ATD puffy message sticker, some Prima flowers, misc. gems, and some faux pen stitching. Thanks for looking!

Jo also created a beautiful layout for us this week:

For this week's layout, I used Whisker Graphics Divine Twine in several different ways. Of course, it belonged in my buttons, but from there I also used it around letters in my title and stitched it down the side of the matting. Then I decided it would be perfect for the flower centers too! This Twine can be used in so many different ways!

When I showed my daughter the layout, she asked me if I had any more of the twine to make friendship bracelets with! I think I am going to have to order more because the bracelets turned out so cute and fact she has already given one away!

And here are two cards created by Barb:

I love making cards, so I was happy that my assignment this week was to create two of them. 

For my first one, I used the Unity Stamp Company's "Berry Good Life" stamp set. I used a masking technique to include two stamps on the front of the card:

Don't you just love that cute saying? I used watercolor crayons and a blending brush to add the color. For added interest, I wound some Whisker Graphics Divine Twine around the stamped block. (The green is my favorite color -- it goes with almost every patterned paper I own!) 

And of all the holidays, my favorite card-making one is Halloween. I just love all the wonderful papers and embellishments available! For this one, I used the Divine Twine to add little accents:

Want to see the way Barb decorated the insides of her cards? Then go here!

And now we have Cassy, with a bright and colorful layout!

For my layout this week, I wanted to document some of my daughter's firsts in sixth grade which include moving to a new school, getting lockers, etc. So I used some Sassafrass Lass pp, Divine Twine, tickets, Maya Road Rub-ons, Pink Paislee Chipboard letters etc. to embellish her school photo layout page. I also created a mosaic apple which I covered with diamond glaze to give it some shine. TFL!
