First design team application and lessons learned

I love crafts so much it sometimes takes over my world lol! I make girls hairbows and tutus, home decor and paper crafts. I sell my hairbows but I lost the joy of it. Its no longer fun, its stressful. I havent had as much time to give to my first passion of paper crafts. I saw a design team call for Jillibean Soup (products I adore)...I tried but I see things I could have done better. I didnt make the team :( but I see ways to improve and make it my goal to keep trying and improving.

Here are the things I see in my work that can improve for the next application:

  • Create a photo box for better pictures
  • Create more projects for my blog 
  • use the most current supplies for the team I am applying for
Here are my submissions, please feel free to give feedback as this is a learning experience for me, Have a Great day!

Project Life Style Layouts

I am so behind in my scrapping! I have some layouts to share from last summer (2013) in the pocket style. I like to change it up, mix brands, layouts and styles...I mixed up Simple Stories paper lines, MME, Jillibean Soup and American Crafts accessories..Bright and fun!

From scraps to pretty art

I just love the look of layering different papers and embellishments! I used scraps of MME paper and a clearance pack of die cuts from Micheal's to whip this sweet card together in minutes. I had this pack in my stash for a long time...Love it...so I urge you to use your scraps and stash to make something pretty! Have a great Sunday!
