PACS 2010 - Team challenge - Totem

We're back.
The PACS convention was a GREAT experience for me. I loved few workshops - I learned new things and tried different techniques. Few workshops were nice & fun, but I didn't learn anything new and 1 workshop was terrible! But it was 1 out of 12, so it'
s not that bad.

Anyway - this is our centerpiece for the team challenge. We didn't win a prize, but it was fun to make, especially considering the fact that all the pieces came from 3 different countries, all had to fly to France...
We chose to be "the scrap fairies". We wore pink wings, crown & wand...

These pictures were taken at the morning after the crop night, when we put it all together:

Close up to the fairy house door:
Many people complimented us for our work (and some even asked us how come we didn't win). It was fun!

I appreciate your comments!

Chunky Book - Keren

Keren celebrated her birthday in a scrappy way. It's the first scrappy-birthday I have invited to, but I couldn't participate. The birthday was on Wednesday evening, and few hours later I had a flight to Paris, for the PACS scrapbooking convention.

Anyway, as part of the scrappy birthday - all the participants were supposed to create a chunky page. This is the page I made:
The front - spin wheel with cupcakes images

The back (it was planned to be the front, but I didn't notice the direction - Hebrew is opened from right to left and this is left opening, so it had to be the back): paper piecing cupcakes, some are 3D:
Close up on the 3d elements:
And when you open you discover a pop-up cupcake and the greeting:
View from above:

It was very fun to make - I used many techniques and I just hope she liked it!

I used:
Cardstocks: Kraft, Sonburn, DCWV & many scraps for the cupcakes paper piecing
Stamps: Unity, Image Tree
Ink: StazOn, Marmelada
Lace trim

Team Challenge (fairies) - PACS 2010

Here are 5 fairies I created for the team challenge @ PACS. I punched flowers and attached them to this foam fairy. It took some time, but 5 fairies are ready to travel to France...

And all of them together:

I used: Sonburn cardstock

Team Challenge (Weather Vanes) - PACS 2010

Another decoration I made for the team challenge was weather vanes. Each is made from 6X6 paper, cut with shaped scissors, attached with brad to a drinking straw...

Team challenge (names) - PACS 2010

I guess there will be few posts about my creations for the team challenge @ PACS. The challenge was to form group of 5, to create a team; Find a name (The fairy scrappers) & make a totem for the center of the table at the big crop room. The challenge takes place on Friday night (I guess that when this post is being published).
Our team members are Yafit (which doesn't have a blog - my partner from Israel), Roula & Katerina (from Greece) & Sarah (from England).
We decided that Roula & Katerina will make the centerpiece and each creation we make for this evening, we'll do 5 times, so by the end of this crazy experience we all end up with all the creations.
The first thing I made was signs with our names. It measures about 6" (not including the thread above and below - with the beads):

I'll post more creations I make for this event, and when I'm home - I'll publish our whole table. I'm curious what we'll end up with (and what other teams will do).

I used: Cuttlebug & Nestabilities, JustRite Stampers & other unidentified: doilly, lace, felt...

Mail Art - PACS 2010

First challenge of PACS (Paper & Co Show) 2010 is mail art. This post was scheduled to publish on the first night of PACS. I hope i made it safely... LOL
Hopefully the envelope will also be in one piece in time:

I used: DCWV cardstock, Sonburn cardstock & letters stickers, Fiskars border punch, Unity stamps, StazOn jet black, washi tape, Cuttlebug & Spellbinders nestabilities, Colorbox ink, Sharpie, Stampin' Up! circle punch,

One more try, using different scheme of colors:
Than we moved to a bigger paper, this time it was 8X6:

And the last one was about 11.5X8.5:

It was a great experience!

Taj Mahal

This layout was inspired by sketch #54 @ Creative Genealogy Scrapbooking.
The pictures were taken during my trip to India, before I started my military service (September 1996 - I showed the LO to a friend and she asked me why did I write 2006.... At that moment I realized I was wrong and changed it to the correct year - 1996, ten years earlier).

I used: DCWV cardstocks (Taj Mahal stack), Ink It Up! black ink, stapler, ribbons, embellishments received (I finally had the chance to use all these gold embellishments, which I rarely use).

This is the cake I made for Mor's birthday at the kindergarten. Quite simple, but kids don't care... LOL. As long as she was happy - I was happy!

Noga's Back Yard

This layout was inspired by sketch #41 @ Tuesday Trio. The extra challenge was wings:

Close up:
In the pictures you can see Yaara & Rotem (Yaara's best friend) planting in their kindergarten's back yard.

I used: DCWV cardstocks, Around the Block cardstock, Ink It Up! black ink, We R Memory Keepers chipboard, Martha Stewart butterfly punch, Prima flowers, Making Momories flower & button, the Paper Studio pearls, pins, thread, brads.

Queen of Butterflies

This is another layout that was inspired by sketch #41 @ Tuesday Trio. Again, the extra challenge was wings. I created this layout as a second layout, because when I sent the first (Noga's back yard) - I understood that I should have put more emphasis on the wings (and few butterflies are not enough)... Anyway - I immediately thought about these pictures of Yaara, on Purim 2008. She wanted to be the queen of butterflies, not just a "regular" butterfly. She was 3 and half years, she put the makeup-play at my hands and told me what shape she wanted, which colors to use. She went to see in the mirror after each stage :-)

Cardstocks - DCWV, sonburn
Stamps - Marmelada (Hebrew), Unity
Ink - Marmelada, StazOn jet black
Pen - Sharpie
Other - Fiskars border punch, glitter, bling

Happy Birthday card

Yaara, my 6 years old daughter, came to me and said: I'm bored, I don't know what to do... It's been a while since I wanted to create more cards to my stash, so I asked her if she wants to make cards with me. She said yes and used all my tools.
This is the card I made (I didn't take picture of hers, she already wrote a greeting to her niece - who celebrates her birthday on December):

I used: Sonburn cardstock, DCWV patterned paper, Fiskars border punch, Studio G clear stamps, StazOn jet black, felt (+unknown cardstock - the lower)

I've been published

This is so exciting!
3 of my layouts were published @ SNR (Scrapbook News and Review) magazine, Volume #3, Issue #11

I am very happy and excited!

Sugar Dough cake - Diego

Here's one more cake using Sugar Dough - this time Diego is starring... We made this cake twice, once for Hagit's niece (her name is Zohar, as can see in the picture) and one for my Mor, for her 4th birthday:
