Black and Orange Projects from the Design Team

Check out these orange and black combo projects created by the Design Team ...

First up Corrina ...
Book Week 2008 and my darling gorgeous little precious baby son, my little sweet 5 yr old, wanted to dress up like a spider. Yep. A spider. And not just any spider - a redback spider. And yes, I had to design him a costume. He was sooo interested in bugs and spiders and anything that crawled (although heaven forbid if one of these creepies had the audacity to crawl near him!!!!)

For this layout I have used a great Rusty Pickle paper (Eight legged Web), and I hand-stitched cream wool over the top of the web designs to really make them stand out. I stitched these great little spider charms on the webs - and gosh they look so real when you get them out of the packet - ewwww! (LOL!). The photo mount is recycled pizza box (yep...I recycle the boxes Tracy sends our stuff in!) sprayed with Heidi Swapp black magic glimmer mist. This glimmer mist is awesome - it's black with a gold shimmer in it - just glorious! On the photo mount I have cut pieces of my2angels design Explore Loud Messy Rough n Tumble 100% Boy ribbon and mounted them onto pieces of chipboard to raise them up a bit.

Materials Used:
Rusty Pickle Paper - Eight Legged Web (Costume Party Range)
Jenni Bowlin Studio - Chalkboard Alpha Vintage
Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist - black magic
my2angels design ribbon - Explore Messy Loud Rough and Tumble 100% Boy ribbon
spider charms
misc cardboard (I used an old pizza box), wool, needle.

From Wendy ...

This month Tracy asked us to use some of her ribbons and other my2angels goodies. So for my first share for the month I have used some of the Extreme Play Hard Boys Ribbon on this LO I did of my sons year 5 camp trip last year.

I have used (again) some Sassfras Lass Apple Jack My Type, together with some of their Glitter Alpha Stickers, which are a great sized alpha. The other alphas I used are American Crafts Foam Thickers Daiquiri Black and Carolees Creations Tiny Black Alpha Stickers. The grass is Scrapware Chipboard Mini Grass, however the tree is not but the scrapware chipboard love fern tree in the shop is very similar.

And from Tracey ...

I had a clean out on the long weekend. I hoard absolutely everything. Nothing gets thrown out it my house, especially if it can be re-used, re-designed, recycled, re-homed!!!
So I found this empty box ...

I had been hoarding and decided to make a cubie, dice decoration thing for the boys room. They can actually use it if they want to decide who gets to clean their room

Recycled Box

and from me Tracy (without the E) my first layout in a while ... adding blue to black using the new Scrapware Vintage Luggage Chipboard which arrived in store late Friday ....

Mark's First Passport Photos

The Bo Bunny Mama Razzi pattern paper was an easy choice for this layout. And the new Scrapware Vintage Luggage Chipboard was a perfect embellishment - since they are so generous in size I separated each suitcase and just used one which I inked and heat embossed silver on the buckles, hinges etc.

And more scrapware their cute mini aeroplanes which I inked and covered with Inkssentials

Also used the Tattered Angels Travel Bingo Cards - they are in a gorgeous vintage beige colour but because it wouldn't match my page I scanned them and printed out in black and white.

Of course any travel layout is not complete without our camera charms. Also added our buggy car charm.

Also from Scrapware is the clock hands which I was inked and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.

Wrapped around the clock hands is a piece of string holding our Eiffel Tower Charms and underneath a small piece of white cotton ric rac

Also used black painted corrugated cardboard and the negative film strips are from the original layout. The original was crying out to be redone!

And lastly a piece of our 100% boys ribbon down the bottom of the layout.


Hope everyone is having a fantastic weekend
