Hello! I have something exciting going on today! Torendi, the new fabulous and cool crafty store, is having a design team competition, American Idol style. That means voting, and that means I need to ask you for votes! The poll is on the upper right hand corner of the Torendi blog. I would love your vote. It would mean the world to me! There will be 3 weeks of competition where people are eliminated each week. Please keep me from getting kicked off the proverbial island! I would love to hang on this island for quite a while! 😉
This is the card I made for the first week of competition. It is full of goodies from the Torendi store, including their first kit, “Taste of Torendi“.
I used my Quickutz cork for the first time. I love this stuff. It is seriously cool! The card base is this rad textured American Crafts card stock, and the patterned paper is the ultra cool The Boyfriend from Cosmo Cricket. I have been hoarding it until now. It is all just too cute! The inside of the “polaroids” is also The Boyfriend.
I cut out the push pins with the Silhouette and colored them with my beloved distress inks and a sharpee. The polaroid frames are distress inked also to get that “polaroid” look. The Thickers are also from Taste of Torendi. I just love them! They are so fun!
I hope this card made you smile! Paper airplanes +polaroids + push pins = smilies, in my world! Please take a second to vote over at Torendi and also to check out the awesome stuff they have over there! Thank you so much!!
