new year, new opportunities

So...I'm thrilled to share with you that I've been selected as a member of the 2012 Creative Memories Design Team.  You can read the announcement HERE.  I'm so excited to be a part of such a talented team, and to work with such a wonderful company.  I thought I'd share a few of my Creative Memories projects with you.

A Thankful for You card using the Gratitude line and corner maker:


To create the flower just punch/cut four or five different size circles, fold the circle in half and trim the corners in a corner rounder.  Unfold the circle, turn 1/4 turn, and fold in half and trim again in the corner rounder. Repeat this four times for each circle. Layer the trimmed circles together using foam squares, and add an epoxy sticker to the center.

 I explained about this give thanks tree project in this post.  Here's the layout I created with the completed tags using the Gratitude line, tag maker, and tearing tool:



This layout was included in an article I wrote in Ella Publishing Co's free monthly ezine.  You can read the article on year-in-review scrapbook layout ideas here.

Here's to a new year and wonderful new opportunities!
