We are so glad to have Gwen of This and That by Gwen as our Guest Designer!  Please stop by her blog and show her some love!!

My name is Gwen, I am new to blogging of about a month.  I am having so much fun with it so far, crafting people are so nice!  I was thrilled when I was asked to be a guest designer on MAG Challenges by the Page, I will be honest I was also a little nervous!   I have been crafting as long as I can remember, sewing, clay, wood, painting just about anything.  Now I mostly do paper crafting, it started as scrapbooking and from there went into cards and 3D items.  I just love it!!I was asked to use the Paisley cartridge page 39.

First project:
Box cut at 9.5”       from wrap it up      from craft cardstock
Background            from lacy labels      from bo bunny
paperHeart          cut at 3”       from Paisley            
bo bunny paper
Flowers                   die                   scrap paper

The pink heart is popped up and is textured with dots.   I did some stitching around the box and the heart.  The flowers have stickles in the center and the leaves were hand cut.  I stuffed the box with crinkle paper and tied the bow with ribbon from Wal-Mart.

Second project:An A2 size card some of the papers are bo bunny I don’t know where the others are from.  The mushroom was cut at 3”, the top layer was cut 2 times so it could be popped up.  The yellow squiggle line has glossy accents on it.  All the edges are inked with brown ink.   The ribbon, stamp and punches are from stampin up.

Third project: I took the shadow of the mushroom (4.5”) and welded them together to make the card base.  I then cut out the layers of the mushroom at the same size, I cut multiple layers ( the stem 2 times, the top 3 times) so I could pop them up.  The bee was on the paper I punched around it and then stamped the sentiment and attached with a brad.  The punches are from stampin up, the paper is Basic Grey.

Don't forget, we are having a Design Team Call for MAG!!!! So, if you are interested in being part of this fabulous design team and love making cards, scrapbook layouts or craft projects, we'd love to hear from you!
