exciting news

Oh, what a fun day it is for me today! I finally get to tell you that I was selected to be part of the Page Plans Design Team! Woohoo! Oh, I have to tell you that my being accepted to the team earned me the "great job" cone at my house...lol! (we have a miniature construction cone, about 6" high, that says great job on it and it is placed at the table spot for the person who has done a great job...fun!)

Each Sunday from now until March '09 you'll see a card made from the fun Page Plans sketch on my blog. I hope you'll join me in the fun and play along with the sketches too!

I thought I'd show you all three of my card submissions. Each card was made with a Page Plans sketch. They are quite self explanatory so I'll just give a brief explanation. The first card is made with a favorite set of mine recently, Upsy Daisy. The patterned paper is from the Washington Apple DSP that SU! has new in their catty.

Next is a fun card with the SU! set called Mr. Twigster. I pulled the sentiment from another SU! set but can't remember the name right now. Again, the paper is from SU! and is called Ski Slope (this paper and the Autumn Vine paper are both available from SU! starting today so let me know if you have any questions!). It also has some beautiful new Riding Hood Red Taffeta Ribbon on it. Even though you cannot see it this card has lots of sparkle and Christmas feel to it!

Lastly is a card made with a Sweet N Sassy set called Happy Harvest. The patterned paper is the above mentioned Autumn Vine DSP. I Cuttlebugged the brown/orange background paper with the new Autumn embossing folder and then ran some white craft ink over the embossed area. I added extra ink over the blessings area as that is the sentiment that I wanted to highlight. It looks much better IRL...I promise!

So, the you have it. I hope you will enjoy these next six months with me as we journey through some fun Page Plans sketches! Please go check out the Page Plans blog and meet the other design team members!

Be sure to scroll down and see my Belli Challenge card for the day!

Have a super Wednesday!
