The One with the Hambly Design Team Blog Hop!


Saturday, December 17, 2011

Welcome to the Hambly Design Team Blog Hop!
Photobucket
We'd like to introduce you to the new design team members through a blog hop (and giveaway). Visit all 16 designer's blogs, where you can read a little bit about each member and see a project and/or tip about Hambly products. Leave a comment on each of their blog hop posts, then go to the Hambly Blog and leave comment. On Dec. 19th 2011 at 12 noon PST we will randomly pick and announce the winners on the Hambly Blog.

Here are 10 random facts about me:
1) I've been scrapbooking for a decade now, ever since my first job at a scrapbooking store when I was 16, and I think it's the best hobby on earth!
2) My favorite things to eat are Thai food and candy - any kind of curry and anything fruity and chewy!
3) In the 2+ years we've lived in Southern California, we've been to Disneyland 40 times...
4) We have a dog named Joey, a cat named Rachel, a rabbit named Chandler, a finch named Alice, and a chinchilla named Li'l Chinchilla. I really like, no, love animals.
5) I know Morse Code.
6) Apart from scrapbooking I also enjoy fine arts like painting and drawing, bookbinding, photography, and crafting.
7) I've eaten over 17,000 bowls of cereal in my life.
8) When I was little I wanted to be a veterinarian. After I failed my first chemistry class in college, I quickly changed career paths to Art Education.
9) I blog almost daily - it's my guilty pleasure and totally therapeutic!
10) Our son Fox is named after Fox Mulder of the X-Files.

Without further ado, here is my Hambly hop project:

RIVERWOODS MALL

Journaling says: The Riverwoods Mall is so much different than when we lived there! It's closed off and was completely festified for the holidays. Eric, Tanya, Allie, and our little family loved walking around and seeing all the twinkle lights and sparkly trees - we even went in Santa's house! Fox seemed to really enjoy it and even pointed at the bright trees. To top the night off we got the most delicious apples from Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory. I may have anew go-to flavor: peanut butter cups. It was a fun night with family.

How to: Cut a diamond out of chipboard then use it as a template to cut out dozens of diamonds from all kinds of Hambly papers, transparencies, and vellum. Arrange the diamonds into "snowflake" patterns on a lime green cardstock background. Apply snowflake rubs ons across the layout and top them with mini jewels. Sew around the snowflakes using white thread then write around the largest one using a black pen. Apply round rub ons to kraft cardstock, cut them out, and adhere them to the center of the snowflakes using pop dots. Place letter stickers around the rub ons to create a title. Add three photos to the bottom right corner, using pop dots under one of them.

Supplies: Patterned paper, patterned transparencies, patterned vellum, rub ons (doilies, snowflakes): Hambly Studios; Cardstock, pen, adhesive: American Crafts; Jewels: Pebbles; Letter and number stickers: October Afternoon; Sewing machine: Brother; Thread: Coats & Clark

  28. The quilted look of the elements in your project is awesome -- I particularly like it because the Hambly papers give it a modern twist! And I am amazed that you know how many bowls of cereal you've had. And that you named your son Fox after Mulder. That is way too cool for me to take in right now!
