Dude, Twins, and Instagram

Tuesday, May 28, 2013


I'm jumping in head first into the Paper Crafts Gallery Idol competition.

It's a lot like American Idol, except there is no singing.
{Thank God! I can't sing!}

The open round of auditions is going on right now. I submitted three cards.

The first one - (shown above) - was inspired by my teenage students. They are always saying the word "dude". I used a stamp from The Craft's Meow, a Lil Inker bow tie die, and Studio Calico paper.


Here's my second entry. I wanted to do something creative and make a birthday card for twins. I think the lollipop sticks and the graphics from the digital kit add some fun to the design.


My third entry came about because of my love for Instagram. The design popped in my head in the middle of the night. This one is for a Teen Girl's Birthday! 

I stamped the camera image using a little one from Fresh Squeezed Stamps. I typed the sentiment myself using my fave font - "Ostrich Sans". As you can see, I kept the design clean and simple. The American Crafts paper helped me add a splash of color.

I'm keeping my fingers & toes crossed!

Good luck & crafty hugs to everyone that entered!
