So Inspired!

A few weeks ago, I answered a Creative Team call that was posted at Diecut Designer. I hadn’t answered any of these calls in quite some time as I didn’t feel I had the time, energy, or even talent to do so. I was shocked when Cindy emailed me and asked me to join her team of talented designers at The Creative Pointe.

Our first project is for May and I am so excited to show it to you! Cindy sent out an email last week having us pick our design for the month and one of the ones that she had created was JUST PERFECT for me!

As many of you probably don’t know, we are in the process of moving from our house into a camper. We are going to be living in it for the next few years on our recently purchased 10 acres! This is all an adventure to me as I am a TRUE CITY GIRL!

Since we will be living in small quarters while we are working on converting the barn into a “Doghouse” for my husband with an apartment, this will be something that I hang up in our Camper for as long as we live there.

-Camper: 10.5″ on SCAL
-Grass: 11″ from Plantin Schoolbook
-Crescent Moon: 2″ from SCAL Newborn Library
-Title: AR Christy at 1.5″ on SCAL

I took the camper and put it in different layers in SCAL 2.0 after I broke it apart so that I could manipulate the pieces. The camper is white cardstock, the base is black cardstock, windows and door are silver cardstock and the stripe is a scrap of blue patterned paper. I highlighter all of the pieces with my Uniball Signo White Gel Pen, Sharpie Silver Marker, and Bic Mark It Ultra Fine Tuxedo Black Pen. These are some of my GO-TO pens for doodling on images.

The camper is also distressed with Pumice Stone Distress Ink and Black Soot around the wheels and base. The hubcaps on the tires are all sparkly from using Pumice Stone Distress Stickles. The grass that inked with Forest Moss Distress Ink and Uniball Signo Green Gel Pen. {Can you tell I love my Uniballs?} I used my Heidi Swapp Distress Tool {my fave} to rough up all the edges of the base cardstock. Because of this some parts tore which I loved! I just folded them back and stapled with my Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher! Because I didn’t want the light blue cardstock to show through, I just put down some Tim Holtz Tissue Tape and we were in business. {I made sure April was in this spot because that is month that we are signing in.}

More Tissue Tape and doodling goodness! 🙂 The Crescent Moon was an after-thought on this project. My husband is OBSESSED with out having an outhouse on our property and so I added this image to have a bit of him in the project. 🙂

The title for this was what spurred the entire project! I love this font that I found in my collection and plan to use it on many more projects in the future. The paper is Jillibean Soup Staples
which I just ADORE!

Now to just get this layout framed! I’m think some rustic barn wood type frame would be PERFECT for this!

I hope you enjoyed my project. I already have a layout in mind for a friend to use the campfire svg that comes in this set on! I can’t wait to get that one done and show it to you as well! Don’t forget to join Diecut Designer and check out the forum as well!
