I am so excited to share my first DT creations!! I must admit when i first got my kit i absolutely hated the paper .It was so not my style .But since i was forced to use it i spent a few weeks just looking at it then i thought ...WTH ..it has to get done sooner or later!
I did the first cut to the blue piece that looked to me like it had butterflies on it if i cut them out .so that is just what i did!! I added $store bling and glossy accents ,a few straight pins ..and voila!...butterflies!!!! I used glimmer mist for the first time as well and my page curled and warped so i had to trim it and sew it to CS .i love it !!! hope you all do too!
My 2nd page took me to a simple 8x8 LO of my niece's wedding .i used the bazzil in stitches template for the butterfly .i also used the crafters workshop template with smooch ink and glossy accents for the heart.
My 3rd LO i again used the glimmer mist ..i love how this antiques the paper but leaves a shimmer as well.it is the 1st time i have ever torn my paper ..so stressful!!! the flowers are riff raff with a bit of ink.i love the dragonfly .it is on the new cricut cartridge "home decor".
My project is a purse bag from kaiser krafts that i enlarged .it is quite cute!!!

So today i got to issue my first challenge as part of the design team at APOS!!!! For those of you that know me my first challenge won't come as much of a surprise!!! All i ask is that you stitch on your card !!! You can be as intricate as you like or something as simple as drawing your stitching on with a pen!!!
For my first card i tried the Bazzil in stitches templates and i must tell you i absolutely love them!!! They reminded me of learning to sew with yarn in paper with holes punched!!!! i love the way it turned out!!!!
The second card is a carraige card stitched with a pattern available at stitchingcards.com.The butterfly card is made with a freebie pattern from the same site.I hope you all play along!!!
