I'll be working both booths, so if you're at the Anaheim show, come on by, I'd LOVE to meet you and take pictures and all that good stuff!
So...now onto my My Little Shoebox goodies...
There are 6 new lines and 6 new colors of the mini alphabet. You can see all the new lines here and some of the new projects created using the new product here.
I actually had the chance to work with 2 lines this time around, Imaginary Friends and Li'l Critter. Here are the projects I created with Imaginary Friends. My assignment was to make 1 project, 2 cards, 1- 12x12 layout and 1- 8 1/2 x 11 layout.
On "Imagination Mover", I wanted to demonstrated some of the different things you could do with the large cutouts. I embellished with flowers, buttons, and stickles; used my fingernail to curl some elements, and made other elements 3-dimensional by adhering to pop dots.
My Donovan has a very active imagination, as does most 5 year olds, so I wanted to make this page look like it jumped right out of his imagination! I punched stars out of scrap paper and put them on the black background, then sprayed it with silver foil smooch spritz for a very sparkly look. I removed the stars and left behind a subtle masking effect.
here's a close-up
I printed this photo of my father-in-law with the boys from Christmas 2008. He had T-shirts made--Xander's had "I'm the boss" with his photo on it, Ronald's had a picture of Xander and read "Pop-pop says I'm the boss", and Donovan's had his picture on it and read "Pop-pop's Monster". I had to get a picture...of course none came out because the 3 of them wouldn't look at the camera at the same time, but I thought this one was a good fit for the title! Just look at the expressions on the boy's faces! LOL!
I layered punched circles and some old Li'l Davis Design bottle caps that I smashed on the trucks and then added chipboard alpha. I cut out a couple of monsters and adhered them to the back of the trucks. I think this is going to look great in the boys' playroom...once we get it together!
