Dream Job!!

I recently got the opportunity to do some store samples at my local craft store Craft Warehouse. This is my DREAM job by far!!! I have used Craft Warehouse for all my crafting needs ever since I moved here in 2003. I would walk around and look at the samples and think, I so want that job!!! Well what do ya know but a friend of mine started doing store samples for them which gave me the courage to ask the manager about it. Long story short, I got to do some fun stuff this past week with Doodlebug Designs INC, My Minds Eye, and Kaiser Crafts.  Can I get a heck yeah?!?!?!
In this post I'll show these fun journals I decorated with the
Doodlebug Design INC Take Note collection.

The one on the left I covered with the Bubblegum - Sugar Coated cardstock. Then I embellished with the This & That Cardstock Stickers that came in the 12 x 12 paper pack. I used the Tally washi tape and Doodle twine. All of this was from Doodlebg Designs INC.

This one was so fun to play with. I made a washi tape banner using the Doodlebug Designs INC Tally washi tape, Glitz Anchors and Rainbow Chevron washi tape, and Queen & Co. trendy tape. To make the scallop banner, I layed 3 strips of washi tape on some wax paper overlapping it a bit. Then I cut out a circle in the tape, removed the wax paper and folded it in half over the twine. With the pennant banners I just folded a strip of washi tape over the twine then cut an inverted "V" in it.This one was so fun!!!

With this one I used the Mini Pockets in the Take Note line as an embellishment. This one turned out so bright and fun! The thickers at the top are American Crafts.

And who doesn't want a washi tape pen?!?! Love this one.
All of these were so fun to make. I can't wait to share the other things I made so come back soon and check it all out!!!
