Scrap It With a Song Inaugural Design Team


So I promised I had some exciting news to share. Well I have been asked to join the inaugural design team of the new papercraft challenge blog Scrap It With a Song! Each week the challenge will be to create a papercraft project based on a song. I will be doing lots of LOs for this work so I hope you'll enjoy seeing my LOs as much as seeing my cards. I'm excited to see that Christina choose a design team with such a diverse range of styles and can't wait to see more from the DT.


The first challenge was Your Song by Elton John and you have until April 25th to link up your creation for your chance to win 50 Prima flowers! The last line "Yours are the sweetest eyes I've ever seen" was my main inspiration. This is a little boy who I observed for a semester as part of my fieldwork in psychology. I had to look at many aspects of his development and take pictures of how he was in and around the classroom. It was a great experience and I got a little attached I must admit so I wanted to record the experience simply.


In the LO I used almost entirely Cosmo Cricket Joy Ride. Apparently this collection doesn't get as much love. While I must say I am more apt to reach for Material Girl or Garden Variety for a card I think Joy Ride is perfect for a little boy LO. Even if the layout isn't about traveling they love cars, trucks, planes etc so much it works great.
