It's hard to believe that I've been designing for Crafter's Companion USA for 18 months ... and my term has come to an end. I thought it would be fun to take a walk down memory lane to re-visit some of my favorite designs.
One of my first Design Team assignments in January 2013 was to create projects for the Crafter's Companion Booth at CHA using the new new Stamp-It Australia Imagine Collection (still some of my all-time favorite images). One of my favorite designs was up-cycling a pickle jar into a lovely Memory Jar.
My next challenge was to learn how to color with Spectrum Noir Markers. Not only did I learn how to color, but I also passed the test to become an Accredited Colorist. Spectrum Noir has great teaching videos that make it so easy to learn. Palette Blending is one of my favorite techniques.
I also loved the opportunity to design with the Spectrum Noir Alcohol Ink Refills, which are perfect for so many techniques. This tissue paper background project of a Christmas Card with coordinating magnets was created for Xyron using those refills (and I was thrilled when it was featured in the Xyron newsletter).
This was one of my favorite cards that I made ... orange, ink spray, feathers ... all so good.
During the last six months of my term with Crafter's Companion, I was the CD-ROM Specialist for Crafter's Companion. I loved creating tutorials, answering questions, and learning how to create using Digital images and papers.
Thanks for joining me for my fond farewell ... it has truly been a joy designing for this company, and I am so grateful for opportunity to learn and grow as a designer. I'm also looking forward to my next adventure ... whatever that may be.
