Picture This....

Let's talk about the joy and energy you have when you are crafting on a project and it is turning out fantastic. Add to that picture loud music playing in the background and sipping on a glass of wine...maybe coffee...depending on the time of day and the thrill and pride as you turn unique individual things into a cohesive work of art.

This week's challenge for the Design Team was Shimmer & Shake. Ladies, it is all about the movement (and I am not talking about pesky cellulite!) Adding physical movement and light movement. So picture a little "Shake, Rattle & Roll" music playing in the background while these ladies put together their Shimmer & Shake projects.

Marijo made a card with removeable tags. Each tag pulls out and they are made from Kraft cardstock. The patterned paper is paper left over from a class she took at PV. The flowers were cut from the Mother's Day Bouquet Cricut Cartridge. Marijo added the shimmer with stickles on the brads. The brads were the perfect size but not the perfect color so she modified them with a black sharpie. Genious! She added rub-ons from her stash at home. Beautiful results. Marijo, thanks for sharing.

Mindy created movement with her Composition Book. With back to school sales going on sometimes these books just call my name. They are inexpensive right now and so easy and fun to doctor up. As you can see Mindy made a personalized masterpiece.

Mindy traced scrap paper that was left over in her stash to cover the book. Scrap ribbon is wrapped around and tied off. Ribbon always adds texture and movement to any project. The tag is from PV and is shimmered up with Shimmer Pearlz Grammie Berrie color. Mindy attached the tag with a metal chain that also adds to the bling and movement.

Both ladies did a great job! Make sure you check in with us next Tuesday as the challenge is to decorate a custom album created here at PV. The ladies are creating with a prize in mind as you, our wonderful customers, can come into the store and vote on your favorite. There is a prize for the designer who wins plus one prize for a customer who takes the time to come in and vote. Good healthy competition also creates a little movement :)

Thanks for reading our blog! Have a great day.
