It has been exciting to pour over the wonderfully creative art submitted by so many talented entrants.  It has beem so difficult make decisions that exclude talented people.  Thank you to everyone for your heartfelt submissions. We understand and appreciate the effort that goes into your artwork.
Our new Design Team Members will gather in Phoenix, AZ the first week of April for a Design Team retreat, and their first assignments will be due on April 30.  We look forward to meeting our newest members and welcoming our returning members!

WOW!!!!!!! I am so super excited about this! I really wasn't sure I had much of a chance as they have been a company really geared towards card making. Hee, let me be the first to tell you....their dies do wonders to a scrapbook page!

We are allowed to share with you our submissions from the first two rounds, however our projects from the final round have to stay under wraps.

Here is the layout that I submitted for round 1:

Everything on this page was cut using dies, except for the large green square. The banner was made using bits of different shapes.

The second round we were asked to submit a card. I absolutely was in LOVE with how this turned out!

Our final round we had to create both a layout and a card that complimented each other. Hopefully someday I'll get to let you see it, but for now it is the property of Spellbinder's...maybe you'll see them in some promo or add stuff! :)
