it's time for day three of the blog team-up with Paulina! i'm so excited about today's post... it's awesome!
today's team-up is really fun... the idea can be a bit scary at first, but it's actually quite rewarding once you get over your initial reaction.
Paulina and i decided to limit ourselves with a set time... we only had 10 minutes to create our cards/ projects. we're calling it a craft dash! how fun, right? the details of how YOU can join the challenge are on Paulina's blog... you can grab a badge, we have a prize, so you should definitely head over there... below this challenge graphic, i have my card to show you...
oh, and just so you know, we have a ton of AWESOME designers joining us for this challenge... i'm so excited about who is all on the list... it makes me giggle actually :D (p.s. one of them might be THE Amy Tsuruta! check Paulina's blog for the whole list and see what everyone has created... i can't wait!)
okay, on to my card, for reals:
btw: all of the designers are posting how long our projects took us...
mine took all of the 10 minutes! pretty amazing huh? i used the timer on my iPhone to keep track of how far i was, and literally, the last sticker on the star was put on right as my alarm started going off to signal that my time was up. i think i could have created this a little faster if i had used a different adhesive--the one i used required a peeling off of a paper backing (time waster!). so here's how i did it:
i took some patterned papers from the 'Hey Day' Studio Calico 6x6 paper pack, trimmed them to my card front side, and then started cutting the diagonal rays (cutting all four papers at the same time). then i pieced them together, glued them down, and added a doily to the center. after that i grabbed a brad from MME 'the sweetest thing' collection that says 'i heart u' so that i wouldn't have to stamp a sentiment (not enough time!). then all was left was add a flower with bling, and a star with a sticker.
i think i might have been sweating over this one! (haha, not really, but i felt a bit pressured at first). the great thing about this challenge is that you are forced to make crafty decisions quickly. and there's not much wiggle room for re-thinking anything or "re-doing" anything.
well, that's it for me today... don't forget to visit the other blogs for more fun projects! :D
thanks for stopping by, xoxo
