The winners of the Chatterbox design team auditions were announced earlier today. I didn't make the final cut. Trying out for a team and not making it is always a little disappointing, but this time it was actually kind of a relief. I really have been thinking a lot about how much I have on my plate and what my monthly commitments are. I am so happy to work with the companies that I do and really wasn't looking to add anything else. But I was so drawn to the new Chatterbox products that I decided to give it a go. I never expected to make the call backs. When I did I was thrilled, of course. Not making the team though to me is a sign that it just wasn't the right place for me and I am okay with that. A fun perk of trying out was that I got to play with some great products and made a couple of projects I really love.
Since I didn't make the cut, I am finally sharing with you here my projects. The first is this mirror. We were challenged to create a monochromatic project featuring the Willow Fine Paper Collection and matching accessories. The flowers and leaves were cut using the Cricut Accent Essentials cartridge. The flowers were coated with Glossy Accents to create shine and to give them more body and durability. Aside from the mirror (a clearance aisle find from Hobby Lobby), the Glossy Accents, and florist wire, everything is from Chatterbox.
I will be back tomorrow with photos of the mini book I made for my entry.
