MARCH 2011 CREATIVE CREW CHALLENGES

I'm very excited to share my March Creative Crew Projects. The challenges for March are:

CCREW0311CF ~ Catalog Focus on the section 'Growing Up' ... make anything with a stamp set from this section of the Idea Book & Catalog.

For this challenge, I used the Tiny Tees Wheel and stamped the baby-grow 3 times, one on the shimmery white paper, and 2 to be cut out and popped up with a dimensional. VERY simple, but pretty cute :)

Here's the box open, you can see the DSP liner and the flaps which make this box so unique. The tutorial is on the sidebar under 'Tutorials'. I'd love you to have a go :)


I made a small rose for the ribbon treatment. Spent the day on Saturday with my Michigan Mingle buddies over at Jill's house and Jill was making these cute little ribbon rosettes. So I had to have a go too ~ this twill ribbon is pretty bulky, but I made it work! The centre is one of SU's Vanilla Rosettes which I dyed in reinker to match the project.

CCREW0311DF ~ Design or Colour Focus. The challenge for March is to use Woodland Walk DSP, or the colours of Vanilla, Wild Wasabi, Garden Green, Crumb Cake and Chocolate Chip. Here are my projects with this colour combo:

One of my friends, Carol, showed me a card in the SCS gallery by Connie Tumm. It was sheer genius! She used a Lattice Die on the inside of her card to make a pop up mechanism. I thought I'd use Connie's idea for this Creative Crew challenge. I absolutely love the inside of this card. I kept the outside VERY simple, as all the action is going on inside!!!



My second Colour Focus card still uses the Owl Punch ~ well, it's too cute NOT to use, right? But this one is slipped inside the mini envelope from the XL Die 'itty bitty box and envelope'.



CCREW0311HF ~ The Holiday Focus is on International Earth Day, ie. recycling, repackaging etc. I recycled one of SU's stamp cases. I just trimmed down a notepad to fit inside and hey presto! Love this one :)

This is the inside, I trimmed down the notepad and put the Newsprint DSP over the header. So easy and SO effective.

There is a final Creative Crew Challenge which I didn't participate in, it's a scrapbook page about YOU! So come on over to SCS and play along, we'd love to see your creations in the Creative Crew galleries. Use the keywords listed above, and the words creativecrew, no spaces!
