CMK Design Team Call

I am so excited to apply for a DT position at
Create My Keepsake!

As part of the application process,
we have to create a kit out of our own
scrapbook stash-
then post the creations we make from it!

I had an absolute blast doing this!
Definitely the most unique and fun way to apply
for a DT position :)

So without further ado, I present:

One FANCY Kit!


This kit is packed with all sorts of yummy products!

Kit Contents:
Cardstock: 3 sheets by Bazzill
Pattern Paper: Prima, SEI, Making Memories,
Sassafras Lass, Chatterbox, Creative Imaginations,
The Paper Studio
Alphabet Stickers: Making Memories
Alpha Chipboard: Thickers; American Crafts
Rub Ons: GCD Studios
Bling: Prima
Brads: Making Memories, K & Company,
Creative Imaginations
Buttons: Making Memories
Chipboard: Cosmo Cricket, Mollie & Mac
Flowers: Prima, Maya Road
Stickers: American Crafts
Journaling Cards: Luxe Designs (stickers)
Making Memories, Etsy, Creative Cafe (tickets)
Ribbon/Trim: Making Memories, American Crafts
Vintage Lace
Paperclips: Making Memories, K & Company

And here are my creations:

"Almost Sisters"
A page about a great family friend- Jessica.
I pulled the layers of the large Prima flower apart
so that I could use the flower on more than one
project & I decorated the chipboard with stickles.



"Love You..."
My husband, Matt and me at a Christmas Party this year!
I burnt the edges of the "Script" paper with a lighter.




"Time Flies"
My 3 oldest kids on the first day of school.
I cut the pattern paper into scalloped circle shape.



Mini Notebook
I love this little clipboard style notebook!
I used a leftover "page" from a mini chipboard
album for the base of the notebook.



Framed Picture
I started with a plain 8x10 black frame.
I cut my pattern paper down to size and then made a
simple scrapbook page featuring the photo & using
machine stitching. On the outside of the frame I added
trim and the other half of the large Prima flower.

(when we went home for Christmas, we took this
picture of all the "Van Dyke" kids- my brother{Joe},
sister {Caroline}, me and my baby sister {Ginnie})


thanks so much for such a fun contest
& Good Luck to all who apply!!
