For Memory Trends we released the Blossom IV, Vineyard, Super Nova, and Petals 2 chipboard .I asked the DT to use some of the new chipboard and create a project with them. Here is some of their creations.
Lisa used the new Vineyard chipboard for her Christmas letter project.
Suzy used the Vineyard and Blossom IV for her frame.
Greetje used the Vineyard, Super Nova, Foundations, and Chicago Lower Case Chipboard for her cute Holiday layout.
Kim used the new Super Nova chipboard to make this wall hanging for her son.
Aubrey used the Vineyard and Blossom IV, which is a little bit thinner and perfect for layering ,on her layout.
Fiona used parts of the Vineyard swirls to dress up the front of an 8"x8" fabric album for one of her daughter's teachers.
Have you had a chance to play with the new chipboard yet? What is your favorite new set? Don't forget to send me links of your projects if you've used the new chipboard or any Maya Road Product!!
but brilliant bottlecaps. So have you ever wondered what to do with our wonderful bottlecaps? Well, our awesome DT has come up with some great ideas.
Our first one is from Judi. Betcha never thought of this idea? It's her version of Christmas light reflectors. She drilled a hole through the cap so the light would fit in. Then she added pink glitter to the leftover circles of the blossom chipboard and attached.
These ornaments were made by Lisa using the bottlecaps and blossom chipboard.
This is a 6X6 canvas that Greetje altered using Distress Ink and Dabbers from Ranger.
She painted the bottlecaps and placed a photo inside. Did you notice how she also used the rub-ons, Maya Road paper from the Journey Kits, Blossom III and petal chipboard?
Here's Aubrey's project! She's still trying to figure out what do about a picture since they don't get a lot of snow in East Texas. :)
Ok, if you need a quick last minute idea, Suzy came up with a perfect one. She melted chocolate chips and put a big spoon full into each cup (after spraying with cooking spray). She then put sprinkles on them while still wet. She said they come out of the bottlecaps perfectly with just a push and a shake! I think this would be a fun Christmas gift and the recipient could use the bottlecaps again (even on a scrapbook project like they were intended for!
Kim made this cute card using a bottlecap on the front.
Wendy made a mini album using a Blossom chipboard coaster album. I like how she used the bottlecaps a couple times through out her album.
Caroline made these cute little magnets by attaching a picture in the middle and gluing a sheer blossom on the back of the bottlecaps. She then attached a magnet on the back. Perfect gift for Grandparents.
Hope these projects give you some inspiration or ideas. I would love to see your projects using bottlecaps.
For the holidays, Mrs. Claus is wearing a very trendy, chic, and RETRO ensemble that includes a striped and dotted petticoat, a red velvet petticoat, a top layer of HIP lime green with red ornament skirt that turns up on the ends and has ATTITUDE (just like Mrs. Claus these days! )Her bodice is a dahhhling pale sky blue pattern with stars and ornaments topped off with some prisma glitter for added BLING!!! This lovely ensemble is pulled together and topped off with an exquisite MAYA ROAD dotted ribbon from the Atlanta Street Lights collection and a buckle from Heidi Swapp Jewels collection. For added warmth on those north pole nights, she has a lovely wrap made of frilly ribbon. Her choker is of the highest quality red velvet and has a center rhinestone for added bling! To top it all off, Mrs. Claus would not be Mrs. Claus without her infamous red satin hat with lots of white maribou trim!!!! MISTER Claus is going to have a VERY HARD TIME keeping his eyes on business tonight with Mrs. Claus looking so ravishing!!!!!!
