Card Design: When One Door Closes...Another Opens

Hey folks, today I'm here to share some news regarding a couple changes in the teams I work with.  Heather over at Fresh Brewed Designs has made some changes to the team, cutting it in half.  While I am no longer officially on the team, I still love Heather and her images dearly so will still be promoting her when I can in the new year.

This change in status opened up some time in my schedule.  Now while I should have been all sensible, left things alone and kept a bit of breathing room, the exact same day I was let go from FBD, I got a message from Kris B. from Imagine That! Digis by Kris, asking me to join the team.  I've been wanting to be part of this team these past 11 months since Kris' last DT call, but was never able to join due to my other team obligations.  Well, since the stars apparently aligned for me to be able to now join, how could I possibly say no!!!!

So while I have been an unofficial cheerleader of Kris' images for the past year, I am so pleased to announce that I am now officially part of the IT! DkB design team.  

YaY!  In less than one month, I've been able to check off two things from my scrapbooking/card making bucket list--the first becoming part of the Create with TLC design team and now becoming a member of Imagine That! Digis by Kris.  Boy oh boy, Christmas has definitely come early for me this year!!!!!!

Of course I had to make a card to share with you as my first official DT duty.  Check it out...

General Details:
  • On January 4th, my cousin Blair's twins will be having a birthday.  Two days actually, after their daddy's (I'll be showing you all his card when I do my next Pattie's Creation post).  This card is for those sweet little boys!

Digital Image Details: 
  • Snowing Cupcakes: When I saw this set, I just knew it would be perfect for the twins' card.  Clicking on the name or the watermark below, will take you directly to its location in the store.  One of the great things about Kris' work is that the full sets in the store come with a coloured version.  This makes it perfect for time weary people like myself.  Having the coloured version available made it possible to finish this card in one night instead of two.  That is definitely helpful, especially right now with my battling the Christmas Crazies.
Digital Paper Products:
  • I also had the opportunity to use two different papers from a set that was gifted to me by Kris at the beginning of the year.  The two gingham papers are from her wonderful Gingerbread Papers set.  I love the colours and they went so well with the image!  I've linked the preview to their location in the store as well.
  • The little half pearls are Crafts brand and were purchased at Dollarama.

Digital Sentiment Details:

Paper Products:
  • Card, image and sentiment base: Michael's Recollection's Cardstock, white.
  • The paper I used as matting is from Michael's open stock scrapbook paper.
