So Excited! I am on a design team for a scrapbooking store!

I am SO excited, I have to say this is probably going to be my favorite "crafty" position.   Drum Roll here ....
I am on a Design Team for Hannah's Scrapbook Headquarters.   They are located in Antioch Illinois.  Hannah's is a 30,000 sq. ft  store filled with not only scrapbooking goodies, but also a candle shop, custom floral, a frame shop, home décor, a “Life Is Good" store, an expanded “Vera Bradley" and “Pandora Jewelry" departments, and so much more.   You'll  have to check out this store! 

I will be part of the Design Team, mainly creating 2 page layouts and altered items.  Occasionally I'll design a card or two or even teach a class.  Check out their website and follow the design team and all of their wonderful creations.    Here is a photo of the 2 items I plan to alter first.  Which next to Scrapbooking this is my favorite thing to do~  All of these products I am using can be found at Hannah's.   If you are in the mood for a road trip or live near by you have to check out their store... they even have classes, crops and other Scrapbooking & Card events.  Follow the blog or find them on Facebook so you can get updates on all of their crafty events. 

For my 1st project I'll use:  Webster's pages paper (Life's Portrait), Maya Road wood chips, Girl's Paperie vintage buttons, 7 Gypsies paper tape and some beautiful lace ribbon.  I'll add to this list as I start to add my inks, paints, more ribbon and other embellishments.  You will notice the 3 1/2 inch wooden block.. that is actually what I will be altering.  I will post the final image once I finish. 

For this project I'll be decorating that wonderful 2 sided stand.  I will be using Websters pages paper (Spring Market), Maya Road ribbon and wood chips, 7 Gypsies paper tape, Vinyl Thickers, Webster's pages chipboard buttons, and a mini chalkboard wooden tag.  Again I'll add to this list as I start putting it together.  I plan to use some dies of Tim Holtz and a few of his embellishments.  I have a busy week of classes so I plan to get started on these awesome projects sometime next week.  Stop back to see my progress and I'll post some blog candy too!  (From Hannah's of course)

The reason why I am so excited to join this team is because I have been shopping at this store for 8 years, and I have watched the Scrapbooking department grow.  This is my favorite place to shop for all of my scrapbooking and crafty goodies.
