Design Team Challenge - Day 1

We think we have an awesome group of designers this year.  They continually create projects that just 'wow' us all and so we thought we'd give them a little challenge. 
We did do a similiar type challenge this year and this one just seems to take many of them out of their comfort zone.  Which, even though, they may not admit it, is a good thing. ;)

Anyways, here's their challenge for the week.

DESIGN TEAM CHALLENGE:

  • Create a non-traditional layout (no circle, no squares, etc). Really think out of the ordinary here.
  • Use the color ORANGE somewhere on your project.
  • Use the i-top tool on your project.


So ... let's take a look at what THREE of our designers created.

For this challenge, I created a Christmas Tree shaped card. Fold a 12X12 patterned paper and cut a tree shape leaving one side intact. For added dimension, i cut a smaller shape tree and attached it together using pop-dots. Then embellished it with cut out shape, die cuts and
small matching buttons.



Supplies: Imaginisce Christmas Cheer Papers; Christmas Joy, Be Jolly & Warm Wishes; Imaginisce Rejoice Die Cuts, Imaginisce Tool;  I-Bond & I -top;
and Imaginisce Small Brad Daddies.

I love to give and receive homemade cards. I'd guess 95% of the cards I create are the typical rectangle shape but every now and again it's fun to mix it up. Today I cut this cute flower card using my CAMEO and the Makin' Waves collection. I added some sparkle and shine using my i-rock. I can't wait to give this to someone special.


Supplies: Imaginisce (Makin' Waves collection)

This was a bit outside my comfort zone, but it ended up being so fun to be challenged to think outside the box! I had these cute pics of the kids after a bath, that I've been hanging onto forever, and I knew this was the perfect challenge to finally use them. What better way to show off some pictures of the kids at home, than with a home-shaped layout :) To create the roof, I punched many layers with a border punch and then layered them on top of each other. Super simple!



Supplies:
Paper: Imaginisce (Makin' Waves, Monster Mash), Tool: I-Top + Brad Daddies, Border Punch: Martha Stewart Crafts, Flowers: Prima Marketing, Door Embellishment: Recollections, Die-Cutting Machine: Sizzix (Big Shot), Heart Die: Tim Holtz, House Template: October Afternoon, Foam Letters: American Crafts, Pink Paislee, Color Spray: Tattered Angels, Ink: Cat's Eye Chalk Ink.
