Hannah's in Antioch...I LOVE You!!!

I have made entries in this blog before giving "shout-outs" to Hannah's Scrapbook Store in Antioch...but now I LOVE them for a whole new reason...they put me on their design team!  This is my first design team position and I am so over the moon...I don't think my feet have touched the ground yet.  In fact, I already dropped off my first project...that may turn into a class of sorts...I am still working that all out on paper.  Here it is...
So, the challenge was to take a stamp set they had on their shelf and create something with it...seemed pretty simple.  I chose a stamp set from Craft Lounge, called Thankful Flourishes (CCM041).  It is a pretty basic set...it consists of a larger floral image, a few smaller floral images, some swirls and a leaf type image, and 3 "thank you" type of sentiments.  At first, I felt like I was on Project Runway....but for scrapbook & stampers.  I hit my groove late last night and created these three cards.  They all match because of the color scheme and the designer paper I used.  However, each card is unique in the type of technique used on each card...the middle card is very basic with just the use of a scallop border die and a piece of fabric trim.  The card on the left is the large floral image stamped on a piece of designer paper and trimmed and set with pop dots.  And the card on the right is embossed with black embossing powder...can be considered an advance technique.

To find out more about Hannah's in Antioch, click HERE to visit their website and HERE to read their papercrafting blog...they also have a FB page and have been posting videos each day focusing on a different craft technique...because it is National Craft Month after all...Craftapalooza is also happening on the 19th if anyone is in the area and wants to stop by and see some more amazing things from the design team and participate in make-&-takes and more!

Thank you again Jill & Dana for letting me "play" on your team!  :)
