Guest Designer for The Play Date Cafe
Whoot-whoot! I am super excited to announce that this is my week to kick-off the latest challenge at the Playdate Cafe as their Guest Designer. This week's challenge is a fabulous color challenge and let me tell ya I was giddy when I saw the collection of colors. I LOVE this combination of soft pastels and neutrals. I decided on juje'ng up this little kraft box to make a quaint treasure keepsake container to safely store little gems, jewels and other valuables salvaged by my girls (mostly off the floor around my craft table).
Here is is your inspiration palette should you choose to play along...
Julie has all sorts of fun stuff going on at the Play Date Cafe including a bunch of super talented designers giving their interpretations of the color challenge and if you play along you may just be the lucky winner of the prize this week. Now that is cool. It is super easy to play along too - simply follow the COLOR COMBINATION as closely as possible making those colors the FOCUS of your creation. You can make anything you like: cards, layouts, 3-D, home decor...pretty much anything - link up your project on their blog and then follow along as you see what others have created :)
On my little keepsake box I used so many of my favorite products including: Spellbinders Labels Eighteen and Ribbon Banners. That paper (which I use a lot of too) is from The Girls Paperie (drool) and the cherub is K&Company. I LOVE this little journaling vial from Making Memories because you can actually remove the cork and hide a real message in there for someone special - how cool is that! The flower is Prima and that beautiful stamp is Unity. Oh and those gorgeous trinket pins are brand new from Maya Road *nice*
I would love to see your interpretation of this color challenge so if you do choose to play along leave me a comment and a link to your blog so that I can stop by and leave some love. Have fun & thanks for joining me & The Play Date Cafe in this beautiful weekly challenge.
