Frosted Designs Card Sketch #11

I'm so sorry, Blogger deleted my whole post!!!  I've heard a few people complaining on FB about Blogger being naughty but until now, I've had no issues!! grrrr!

Anyway........ Frosted Designs have their new sketch challenge and I really love the elegant simplicity of this sketch and a few things and ideas came really quickly...(unusual for me!)

go and have a look at what the DT have created here

thanks for dropping by.


DT call!!! @ Frosted Designs

We have the most amazing group of ladies that make up Frosted Designs DT! Each and every one is special and has become part of the Frosted Designs family! We have several designers that will be staying on with us for another term (YAY!), but we also have some that need to step down. They will be missed but the good news for you is.... now you can apply to be part of our team!

We are looking for papercrafters of all kinds! If you make scrapbook layouts, cards, altered art items, home decor items or like mixed media.... we want you!! One of the best things about Frosted Designs (in my opinion) is that we celebrate all kinds of crafters! We are not just a scrapbooking blog or a card blog. We want to let everyone share their skills and with 3 challenges going on all the time, there is something for everyone! We would like to fill some positions on all three of our teams. Let me tell you more about each one....

Fabulous Friday Teams: We have two teams of ladies that make up our Fabulous Friday teams. The focus of this team is to use up supplies you already have laying around the house that may have been neglected and forgotten about. For this team, you should be willing to do any of the following: scrapbook layouts, cards, altered art, home decor and mixed media items!

Sketch Along Tuesday Layout Team: This team makes scrapbook layouts that are inspired by the sketches we give them.

Sketch Along Tuesday Card Team: This team makes cards that are inspired by the sketches we give them.

No matter which team you prefer, the requirments for all of our designers remain the same....
1. Be willing to commit to a six month term. Your term would start the beginning of March and go until the end of August.
2. Create a project every other week for your assigned team.
3. Share a step by step tutorial 2 times during your 6 month term. (This can be with photos or video)
4. You will be required to comment on some of the projects that are entered into our challenge each week.
5. Keep an active blog that is updated frequently.
6. Post our challenge and your project on your blog on reveal day and link back to the Frosted Designs blog.

To apply to be part of this team, you will need to....

*Share with us a little information about yourself and why you want to be on the Frosted Designs Design Team.
*Provide a link to your blog.
*Provide a link to an online gallery if you have one.
*Tell us if you are on any other design teams and what your commitments are for those teams. Never been on a design team before? No worries! No experience necessary!
*Share 3 of your favorite projects that you think best represents your style.If you are applying for one of the sketch teams, please do one project based on one of our sketches and let us know which sketch you used. You can find previous sketches in the tabs at the top.
* Tell us which of the three teams you are applying for. If you would like to apply for more than one team, that's great... Just let us know which ones!

Email your design team application to barb.craft@att.net! We are accepting applications until February 10th and will contact the new design team members by February 17th.

Good luck!


Frosted Designs Sketch #10

Hello and welcome to this weeks Frosted Designs card sketch challenge #10. A gorgeous sketch that screams CAS which is currently my new fav of card styles. I am in awe of some blogs I have been stalking lately. Their simply elegant style seems so effortless and I am in awe of their creative talent!
Anyway here is the sketch and my take on it. I am unable to link anything at the moment, but I will when I get a chance.

My daughter is horrified that I have dared scrap her sans makeup! Not really a fan of purple and I never would scrap with it normally, but I am liking the smokey purple of the crate paper range.
Next on the hop is Narelle's blog.
Enjoy! xx

A quick catch up.....

Hi there, sorry I have been a bit MIA I have been on a little holiday to America and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves!! We arrived back in Oz on the 23rd December and Christmas was just around the corner so I have been neglectful of the old blog :-( if you want to read about our travels I started a blog, you can see it here
I decided I wasn't going to scrap this holiday as I am still STILL scrapping our 2009 Thailand holiday. I am getting the blog made into a book! Lazy I know but I surely will never catch up otherwise. It was a good way for my friends to see what we were up to whilst I was away.
When we arrived home, my lovely SIL declared Christmas was at her house this year!!!! Up until I heard this (23rd dec) I assumed it was at my house. No Biggy, I thrive under pressure!! But on hearing this was music to my ears!! Never had I been so happy (and relived) at the same time!!
The 23rd was a total loss to us as we were so jet lagged! On the 24th I was up and down the street at 9.00am looking for a parking space! Faced with the daunting task of buying prezzies for everyone ...... I am now secretly thanking the person responsible for inventing gift cards!!!
We had the most lovely of Christmas days and boxing day surrounded by my family and Mark's family with the most delicious food too.
On another note my 2012 word, after a lot of deliberation is, well it is not actually a word, but phrase taken from Michelle Bridges12wbt program.......
Just Freaking Do It!
Yeah I have cleaned it up a little....
Ms procrastinator here!!
No more wasting time.
