Honorable Mention!

By February 15, 2008General

Julie_cameron_2
I loved Julie Cameron’s layout and thought it was so unique (it would make a great sketch!).  With long vertical stamps, like the branch in Out on a Limb, it is sometimes difficult to break out of a few standard designs.  Julie’s was fresh and I loved her color scheme too!

Katie_renz
Katie Renz did some creative work with embroidery floss on her project.  The popular "french knot" from ages ago made the perfect flower buds in celebration of spring.  I thought this was such an incredible combination of papercrafts and needlework.

Julieann_wells Julie-Ann Wells decided to create a family tree with her Out on a Limb set.  She says that it took a lot of stamping, but she is anxious to get it properly framed and displayed in her home.  So creative!

Tracey_cuccia
I love the way that Tracey Cuccia integrated a photograph with the quote in her project.  This would be such a meaningful project for someone to receive from a child!

Jennifer_cozzens_2
Jennifer Cozzens went all out and created a calendar.  Not only did she utilize Out on a Limb, but she combined several other Papertrey sets such as Faux Ribbon (calendar gridlines), Sweet Love (center label) and Ambassador Mongram Edition (numbers).   What a wonderful way to display hand-stamped art in your home year round!

Cheryl_knutti
Cheryl Knutti created this really pretty "olive" paper.  She was also able to utilize the dove from "Believe" to compliment her project.  Gotta love this one because it focuses on my favorite color, green!

Niki_estes
Niki Estes
created this clever baby carriage from the Nestabilities circle dies paired with a few snips with scissors.  All of her patterns were stamped with various Papertrey stamps.   I love how she was able to mat the sentiment several times with the Nestabilities rectangle.

Charlene_austinCharlene Austin jazzed up regular patterned paper with Mixed Messages.  She suggested that with the variety of words in this set, you could customize paper like this for almost any occasion.

Elizebeth_neumann
Elizebeth Neumann
made these SUPER adorable baby diaper bags to hold nuggets!  The itty bitty sentiments from Mixed Messages were the perfect scale to add an accent to the bag and to the centers of the nugget labels.
