Dream Street Contest

Don't ya just love Dream Street? I just thought I would offer a little teaser for the April 5th upload at Scrapbook Plagyround - which utilizes another one of my favorite Fiskars border punches. Dreamstreet is sponsoring the Scrapbook Playground designers this month and of course there is a Dream Street contest too! You definitely want to get in on it!

To enter: Submit one layout/altered item using mostly Dream Street products into the proper gallery (link below) by April 30th. Rules: One entry per person Must be your own work - no class layouts or lifts You can not win back to back contests - but please enter each month, we love to see your work! Winner will be determined by the Scrapbook Playground Design Team and will be announced in the May 5th newsletter. The winner will receive a Dream Street prize package.

On April 20th you will see the design team flood the gallery with gorgeous work. I am slightly concerned that I have only one project done to date for this upload. I cannot wait to get done with my parent's anniversary album so I am free to create other things. The album is turning out great, but the project is simply too huge to accomplish in a 10 day span. It won't be perfect for Saturday, but I csn tweak after the event before it is put into book format.

I am itching to work on my Dream Street projects. I actually created a boy layout with the gorgeous paper collection I was sent - go figure! Just shows how versatile Dream Street Products are.
A while back I had won a Dream Street contest and the company was very generous with their prize package (did ya hear that? You HAVE to give the SBPG contest a go!). They sent me their Square Chipboard mini album package as well as some pre-done cardstock stickers that "peel and stick" for a perfect background. I have a "Week in Our Life" album all sketched out, journaling done, most pictures taken - and I really just cannot wait to assemble this project for the 5th. The stickers are perfect for those who don't have a lot of time to scrapbook, but want a pretty finished project. Since I will be short on time to get 3 more projects done for the 5th these little shortcuts will be handy. My album will be 16 pages total, and I only have 4 sticker pages, but an entire package of coordinating papers in my winnings - it could not get easier - I am sure of that! I look forward to sharing it with you all.

In the meantime...I had to take a breather from my digital album project yesterday. If I am too tired I just nod at the computer, so I needed to move to my traditional scrap space for a while. The PaperCrafts card call deadline was yesterday, and darn did that sneak up on me! I really had wanted to create some cards with my Fiskars products for the call and managed to whip out a few. Kimberly Polson, for Fiskars, has this incredible line out in gorgeous colors featuring brown and teal- some of my favorites. I also was dying to try my new Butterflies 2 Ultra ShapeXpress template - and walah! Here are a couple of my "break time" card creations, the second features Cloud 9 Designs.

Of course my cards may not get picked for publication, but that is ok. I am really just trying to build a Fiskars portfolio should they, being headquartered down the road, ever be looking for a graphic artist or designer down the line. What a fun day job that would be, huh? (hint, hint Fiskars - I am for hire!) (LOL)
