My 1st Manufacturer DT & Workout #74

I am gonna start off my post today, with my BIG announcement!!  I am joining my first Manufacturer's Design Team...Love My Tapes!!!  And I am sure that you can tell from the name, that they provide one of my favorite products...WASHI TAPE!!  Oh yes!  Washi Tape and Frabic Tape!  A little dream come true.  I will be on the Team with two of my friends from the scrappy world, Tina Walker and Mary Ann Jenkins and I am looking forward to getting to know and working with the other Team members, Kathy Martin and Rita Barakat.  If you are a Washi Tape lover like me or you are looking to start your collection, I highly recommend checking out the Love My Tapes Blog for a listing of where you can purchase Love My Tapes products.  I can't wait to start sharing my projects with you in September!!

Now, onto Workout #74 at ScrapFITIts time for another Workout with Diana, our Creative Trainer! She has carefully laid out this Workout for you to get the best results possible!


This is a great sketch and I am so excited to be working with it, since I still go through Sketchy Thursday's withdrawals from time to time!!



 

I stayed fairly close to the design of the sketch and I had so much fun creating my own Sparkler embellishment for this page!  I just fussy cut the shape from one of the Pink Paislee papers and added some paper clips around the shape, for a little extra pizazz!  I added a button center, to cover the ends of the paper clips and finished it off with a dowel rod and some baker's twine.
 
Be sure to come and play along with us for the chance to win this awesome PRIZE: LowCal FITkit - Last Summer Romance from Paper Issues!
 


Products Used:  Patterned Paper:  Pink Paislee & Pebbles; Wood Veneers:  Studio Calico; Smooch Spritz:  Clear Snap; Baker's Twine:  The Twinery; Liquid Medium:  Diamond Glaze; Button:  Michael's; Other:  Dowel

Congrats on the DT! Looking forward to your washi tape layouts, I can always use ideas for that. I also miss Sketchy Thursday, not as much as Sketch Support, though. Always fun to work with a good sketch, like you did - beautiful page!
