Welcome back to Frosted Designs! We are back with another challenge that is sure to help you use up the supplies you already own! This week we would like to see you use Embossing on your cards, layouts and off the page projects! The possibilities are endless with this one, as you will see with our Design Team examples! You can use dry embossing, heat embossing, create your own embossing, use pre embossed products... you get the idea! Take a peek....
Lydia is demonstrating that you can participate in this challenge without having a machine (or access to one) that embosses. She used purchased embossed chipboard shapes.
This weeks sponsor is My little shoebox
I grew up in my parent's garment factory, and was surrounded by beautiful fabrics, laces, ribbons, and buttons. My mommy used to make tiny dresses for my dolls out of leftover fabrics, and I would dress them with ribbons, and buttons.
My daddy loved to take pictures of my brothers, sister, and me, so my mommy was dedicated to keeping family photo albums. We would put the albums together with whatever material we could find in the factory.
Fast forward to 2001. When my loving husband, Cesar and I got married, I had designed our wedding invitations. Then I went to work designing our wedding albums. I arranged the cards, papers and embellishments to go with our photographs and wedding theme, and ended up incorporating a lot of fabric patterns and accessories in my design.
My wedding album was a big hit! When everybody started asking me who my designer was, I knew I had done something right. With encouragement from Cesar and my family I started "My Little Shoebox" in the spring of 2005.
My goal is to encourage people to take their precious photographs out of their "little shoeboxes" and turn their personal memories into creations that will endure for generations. The idea behind "My Little Shoebox" is to make scrapbooking simple, quick, uniquely personalized, and most importantly, beautiful.
Thank you for letting me share my vision with you. I sincerely hope you like it.
