Gotta cut to the chase today and no lolli-gagging around!
First I wanted to share a super cute, ULTRA FAST, and oh so CHEAP project I did last week....
RUN ladies... do NOT walk to you nearest and dearest Target store! Look at all of the goodies in the $1 SPOT I found!
So, I didn't use all of the things here I bought, BUT I did make the cute mini coaster book for under $5. I made it oh so quick and oh so effortlessly. They had these super adorable foam alpha's, like "thickers", but ONLY a buck :), chipboard alphas, felt flowers, chipboard shapes, sweet little cardstcok tags, ribbons, and stickers. Here is how I made my little album.
When I print pictures at Costco, I normally get both 4"x6" or 5"x7" as well as wallets made at the same time. I figured that I can use the larger ones for my regular pages and then the smaller ones for my mini books. Also, I find that I NEVER run out of pics might need in a crunch! Go ahead and pick your theme and start gettin your pics glued or stapled to the coasters.
Step 2: Embellish, embellish, embellish
I first outlined a little doodled border on my pictures, then started glueing, stampling, and clipping stuff everywhere. The only thing I didn't use from the $1 SPOT were some old Love, Elsie stickers and I only had a few of those in my stash, so it was nice to clear my sticker sheet of those, and then some Prima flowers.
Step 3: Add Text
I used my computer to make really simple words. I did them in Photoshop with a typewriter font, on an 8.5" x 11" sheet, then printed them on a piece of plain white cardstock. Just cut out and then distress with some ink if ya like.
Voila... all done! here are a few more pages:
OK, next order of business.... look at this:
Looks like someone is having a Creative Team call!!! It's been over 1 1/2 years now so I figured it was about time to get myself organized and get my ass back in gear (digitally speaking that is) :) For those interested in applying for my call, lemme explain.... gotta back up a sec though! This is my new kit that I have coming out next week:
Because I loved the colors and theme so much AND I have been well overdue for a digital freebie, I thought I would kill 2 birds with one stone! I have whipped up this little mini kit as well that is FREE :) and will be used for my call as well as just a plain ole goody for all my digital girls who come by and visit me here!
Alright, so if anyone is interested in applying for my CT (this is for digital/hybrid designs for my store) here is what you will need to...

The layout must include items from this kit and can include items from other designers, but must be 85% "corina" stuff. Once you have completed your layout/s, upload to your gallerie/s. If you want, you can come back here to THIS post and link me to your layout!!! In addition, you must also send me a little email answering the following questions:

My "slave driver" details....
- Term= 6 months
- You are expected to create a minimum of 3 layouts per month. On months when I am working on "paper" stuff and there is a lack of NEW digital product, you will STILL be expected to create 3 layouts using 90% of my product. You will have complete access to ALL of my products... so you have plenty to work with!!! You can find my products here directly in the store.
- Upload your layouts to a minimum of 3 galleries (FPD as well as 2 other galleries- digital, paper, hybrid, etc.)
That's about it... I'm pretty easy :) OK, I actually have plenty more to share about my date last night, why my arms are so soar from the weekend, and why it hurts to breath, BUT I will save that for another time!!!! Happy Monday everyone! Enjoy the mini kit if you grab it.... and if you do I would love to know so shoot me a comment AND lemme see what ya did with it!
p.s. Check back in with me later this week when I reveal my new lines and products from Prima!!! I have 2 paper collections as well as some other SUPER fun things that I am soooo excited about!
