Design Team reveal: November 1st

It's Monday! That means it's once again time for another fabulous reveal at Cookin Up Creations. This month we have been sponsored by the awesome manufacturer Midnight Oil Designs. They very generously sent us an variety of their great products. The design team will spend this month showing you all the fantastic thing you can create using their intricacy papers, acrylic albums, stackers and embellishment kits.

Check out what the design team was up to this week:

I completed my first layout for November using a Floral Intricacy from Midnight Oil Scrapbooking Design. The pretty, feminine paper lace mat was perfect for this photo of my youngest granddaughter:

The papers are LIttle Yellow Bicycle "Zinnia". The flowers are by Petaloo; woolies, Basic Grey; jewels and border punch, Martha Stewart Crafts; title stickers, Doodlebug; dies, Spellbinders and Sizzix and embossing folder, Cuttlebug. (Note: I cut out and saved the part of the Intricacy that is hidden behind the mustard colored cardstock. Be on the lookout for it on a card later this month!)

I created two cards using Midnight Oil laser cuts paper. The blue card uses Bella Blvd pp, some Midnight Oil blue dots laser cut paper, some blingy stars that I made using a stamp and some blue Shimmerz for a pattern, and a stamp that says "Let's Hang Out." The pink card's background was Bazzill embossed cardstock, Echo Park pp, some ribbon and pink flowers and of course, a row of Midnight Oil pink flower laser cut paper. Thanks for looking!

This week I had the pleasure of working with the Midnight Oil Clearly Designed "Easel" Album. This album comes with 2 large pages and 4 smaller ones. It can be made into a standard album or made to stand up using the larger pages to hold the smaller pages up. The fun thing about this is that you can attach embellishments to the bottoms of the smaller pages for variety. It can be flipped over and shown on the other side too!

I chose to make a family reunion easel album that my inlaws can display. They can change the display page whenever they want. It can also be taken places for when they want to show off their grandkids! I chose to leave one page with out pictures and one page has a souvenir pocket for her to put what ever items she wants to add later.

This week I used the sweet embellishments from my Midnight Oil Scrapbook Designs Innocent Embellishment Kit to dress up some Martha Stewart paper. I have two friends who are expecting boys in a few months and the embellishments in this darling kit were perfect for the job! I love the fact that everything came in a handy organizer with all of the embellishments color coordinated for me. TFL!****

This week, my assignment was an album. Which I have to be honest about, I was so excited about doing. The reason being, is when I saw this Midnight Oil Cover to Cover Tabbed Album, I knew immediately what I wanted to do. This album comes with 2 acrylic covers and 6 tabbed chipboard pages. This made it the perfect album for a birthday calendar. So thats what I did. I created this album as a flip album that I can keep track of birthdays in...

Here is the cover:

 Now all I have to do is go through and fill in everyone's birthdays on the right date, As you can see, I did fill in a few so you could get the idea. I am hoping this will help me remember birthdays more efficiently and maybe I won't be sending out quite so many belated birthday cards...LOL

This week i was assigned a mini album. I decided to use the Midnight Oil "Clearly designed Show Off album" It is a 4x6 acrylic accordian album with pre-drilled holes. I layered hambly transparencies so i could add color and still enjoy the clear effect. Also from Midnight Oil: white stars punched out from the star intricacies and punchies and ribbons from the embellishment kit.

For my layout this week I used the Diecut cardstock. I Glimmer misted it and did a few outlined stars. These were really fun to work with.

This week I had to do a layout. I used the Laser Cut Number paper by Midnight Oil. I outlined it in black to make it pop!

I did a layout with the birthday cutouts on the bottom and the transparency title! Pretty dang colorful!!

We hope you've enjoyed our creations this week! Check back next week for more exciting creations featuring Midnight Oil designs!
