All you have to do is play along with our challenges and post them on our NSD Event Page on Facebook and you could win! My challenge is the 5 ingredient challenge: cork, sequins, doilies, ephemera, shipping tags! Here is my project:

Here is Week 7 of 2016. I used Crate Paper Hello, Love papers and ephemera and a bunch of goodies from the SMS shop!

As usual, I made my title card first as it usually sets the tone for my whole layout. I cut a 3x4 piece of a Large Glassine Bag and sewed in onto my 4x6 card. I used a beautiful White Paper Lace Doily and layered on a die cut glitter snowflake, two Heidi Swapp Minc snowflakes and a resin word. I tucked in a black chalkboard tag that I stamped the date on with white ink. I embellished with enamel dots and Pink Lagoon Sequins.

I used a 3x4 Minc foiled card next to a picture of my daughter and embellished it with a Cork-Fetti strand and a couple of hand punched glitter hearts.

I used a 4x4 Snap flip pocket and filled it with some of the Pink Lagoon and Glass Slippers Sequin Mixes. I sewed it shut with my sewing machine and adhered it to the outside of the pocket page.

I used a Medium Shipping Tag that I cut down to about 2x3 and layered it with other tags from the Crate Paper Hello, Love collection. I cut a triangle out of a Large Glassine Bag and sewed it onto the 3x4 card to create a pocket to put the tags in.

I used a Minc foiled snowflake, a white Felt-Feti Heart strand, and a Forever Love Cork Heart to make an embellishment cluster on this 4x6 picture.

I used a large cork ampersand and layered on a couple of tiny work stickers and embellished with a few Pink Lagoon Sequins.

Here is another Minc foiled snowflake with a Forever Love Cork Heart and a couple of tiny word stickers.

I used a 3x4 Minc foiled card as a filler card and gave it a few splatters of Heidi Swapp Color Shine in Black and Blush. Then I added a few rhinestones and a couple of Pink Lagoon Sequins.

I hope you enjoyed my project for today and that it has inspired you to get crafty this weekend! Don't forget to play along with the challenges for a chance to win some AMAZING prizes! Next, you are off to Katty's blog!
