We welcomed five new incredibly talented women to our awesome design team....Carrie Taylor, Starr L Timmons, Sandi McClean, Shawn(mycupoftea), and Charlotte( Suepup). Please visit their personal blogs on my left sidebar and congratulate them!
The new term also means a new Design Team logo from Karen (PIT founder). She decided to go steampunk. I chose one of the two possibilities and created a DT badge which I posted on my left sidebar. Click on it, and it magically transports you to Pages In Time. Next, Karen has asked each Design Team member to create something with one of steampunk images, so my creation will be posted here in the near future.
At Pages In Time, I'm continuing to moderate my Tags and Things group. The November/December themed ATCs are rolling in now for me to swap out and return to participants. We're also following along with Tim Holtz' 12 Tags of Christmas tutorials. Karen is offering a prize to one lucky participant in our Tags group who completes all 12 tags. The prize will be by random draw so everyone has an equal chance of winning! If you're making the 12 tags, why don't you join us at Pages In Time? We just completed our tag mingle. Here's the tag that I made to mail out:
I used the Nutcracker theme challenge from the What Do You Ink? group at Pages In Time. I found this beautiful digital image of Clara at McMahon 5 Designs. After coloring her with my Copics and cutting her out, I used foam adhesives to place her on a tag I made from Making Memories Mistletoe music paper (the green ink is glittery) . I used some Shabby Shutters Distress ink on the tag.Various trims in my stash filled in the tag. On top are Making Memories holly leaves and berry brad. The 25 is a Graphics 45 tag mounted on a cardboard inchie.
I'M ALSO ENTERING THIS TAG IN THE SIMON SAYS STAMP AND SHOW CHALLENGE.
The first of the month also means a new Pages In Time kit which you can get through the website. This is such a beautifully coordinated kit and add-ons for the month of December:
And here's this week's Thursday sketch. There's a direct link on my left sidebar to the PIT Thursday sketches.
