DCWV Design Team Submissions

Well it is Saturday and DCWV will be announcing their first ever Design Team tomorrow. As far as I am aware they have not even let the 12 ppl they have picked know yet. At least that is what I am hoping and praying for as I have not gotten an email either way. I am going to share with you today what I sent in to DCWV. Now they did not get all the pictures because I could only send 4 but you get to see everything.
Of course everything is made with DCWV paper. This one I used Coral Couture, love the colours in this stack. The strips of glitter are difficult to see, wish I used a darker glitter. Also stitched the side were I joined the 2 CS pieces. The centre piece is cut with Spellbinders Labels Three, inked the edges then used a cupcake stamp. I coloured the image with H2O pigments(first time using them) and then added stickles for the candy. I like the look of the card just the glitter was wrong.
I love this picture of my youngest Cara. Here I used The Sweet Stack. The title is My Little Chef done in Reflections glitter alpha Pink. I again used Spellbinders Grand Big Scalloped Ovals, some cooking buttons from my stash and Prima Flowers. The pink glitter paper is from DCWV Dazzle stack, I really like the fine texture of this paper and the great amount of sparkle to it, I plan on picking up more stacks like this one. I used Martha Stewart corner double loop bunch to add a little more detail plus I found it went well with the swirls on the paper. One of my favourite LOs I have done in a while.
Next is a desk set. Journal, address box and a note card box. All using 4 Seasons stack. Of course I did them in purple as that is my favourite colour and I plan on having these on my desk.
This is my address box, It is made using a 12x12 sheet of card stock and inside are index cards with ppls addresses and birthdays on them. This way I hopefully won't forget any ones birthday. I have been involved and now run a birthday card exchange on for the last 3 years now and this helps keep me organized. The top bling is from Reflections, Lace used around the top is from my stash, Purple flower from Micheal's $1 bins. Cross Stitched Diva star, kit is from Mill Hill beads but my talent stitched LOL. Love when I can combine both my cross stitch and paper crafting.
I am soooo LOVING altering Journals. I use fabric on the binding, from Walmart, then used matching lace from the address box for around the outside of the journal. Also were the CS joins the fabric I added lace and pearl trim from my stash. The purple flowers are all from , LOVE their mulberry flowers. Of course a matching purple bling flower in the corner. Using my crop-a-dile I put in two holes for the ribbon to tie it closed. Attached to the ribbon closer is a cameo that is done in silver and has purple rhinestones in it. The name plate is from Tim Holtz. I made this and it is what lead me to do a whole desk set. LOVE how it looks and all that PURPLE LOL.
This is  my Note Box, it is an altered cigar box. As you can see I tied all the pieces together with the same CS, lace, trim and in some cases embellishments. I also added a butterfly from reflections with a pearl trail to the top. On the front I added a mesh flower from Prima and the glitter sticker boarder is from Reflections. I Mod Pod the boarder on because it would not lay straight. As you can see it still bubbled up a little. The only thing missing is legs for the box. Could not find any in time to take the pictures and send it off to DCWV.
 Here you can see the box open. Inside I lined it with paper, normally I would use fabric but I ran out of the purple. I made 12 Thank You cards to put into the box and found this cool flower pen at Michael's that fit the whole theme of this set. I hope this set had the WOW factor they were looking for. I Really Really would like to be on this team. DCWV is my first and only CS love. They come out with some amazing patterns, stacks and love how they add foil or glitter to their paper and it doesn't flake off. They CS is a nice heavy weight and perfect for all types of paper crafts. Well off to pace and find something to keep me busy today so I don't think about tomorrow LOL.

Next project I have is making 28 cards from 4 sheets of 12x12 paper. Saw it done on pintrest and going to try it myself. Plus I have to take pictures of the projects I made using my Big Shot and the E2 I recently purchased. I LOVE new tools :)
God Bless and have a wonderful day my crafty friends.
