2012 Artisan Design Team Projects for August - Part 1

I was so excited to receive my first box of Artisan Design Team goodies! The box was filled with 2012-2014 In Color paper, ribbon and other In Color products along with paper daises, 2 stamp sets and 2 Framelits collections. I tried my best to use all of the product that came in the box:)
My first project is for my son Jakob who turns 9 TODAY!! He is our wonderful, smart, creative, loving, kind, energetic, talented and of course cute, first born. We are so blessed to have this amazing boy in our lives. Happy Birthday Jakob!!

9 years old! 12x12 Scrapbook Page: 
 The border around the picture was done the same way as one of my artisan card entries. I cut strips of paper in a triangle and then pasted them around the paper, meeting all the pieces together in the middle. Its actually quite easy, once you figure out the pattern. The banner was cut using various papers and the Bitty Banners Framelits. I love the new framelits, they are so versatile and can be positioned on your paper perfectly!
The number 9 was done with My Digital Studio(MDS) and then I cut it out to put on the page. That is one (of the many) things I really like about MDS, anything I need, any size can be easily made and then printed. So great! I am so happy with this years In Colors, they are such great colors!!

Happy Birthday (4.2 x 5.5) Card:
My second card is also in the birthday theme for today! I made this card with Midnight Muse card stock with the Gumball Green Core'dinations card stock embossed on top. The Core'dinations card stock is so cool! I sanded the top of it and it produced this amazing lighter color and really soft texture. The flower is done by twisting the ribbon and placing it in a circle on the Jumbo Sticky Rounds.

Awesome projects! Love how the chevron embossing turned on the new cardstock when sanded, and your scrapbook page has so much detail! Love it...
