My last Luxe assignments...

Yes, sadly the time has come. My DT term with Luxe is over. It has been an amazing experience, and I am truly honored to have been able to design for them for the last year+. Luxe was my very first design team, and I will be forever grateful that they were willing to take a chance on little 'ole me. Not to mention that I got to know some truly awesome girls in the process.

This first layout was done with Luxe's new Ecology line. I was SO excited to be asked to guest design for Method Playground, one of my favorite challenge sites! The challenge that I came up with is to use chipboard as a guide to handstitch a design (in my case, I used chip letters as a guide). If you play along at MP, you can win a cool prize pack from Lilly Bee designs, so be sure to check out the challenge here.

This next layout was made using Luxe's Lovey line. The honeybunch paper has tons of circles printed on it, and they were just screaming out to me to cut them! So I complied :-) And the end result gave me lots of fun scallops. PP, labels, epoxy sticker and large letters are all Luxe. Mini letters are MM and pink letters are Doodlebug. The little bird stickers are Hambly, ribbon is Heidi Swapp and stickpins are MM.



Finally, I also used the Lovey line to make a card, as I couldn't resist cutting out more of those hearts. This card is super simple, but as you all know, i'm a total card novice, so I figure the simpler, the better ;-)
Thanks again to Luxe for a wonderful DT term!!

So, June is out and July is in. I hope that everyone's summer is moving along nicely! We have a busy few days ahead, and the 4th will be here before we know it. We have a bike parade for the kids around our 'hood in the morning, and we're going to a party at our neighbors' house that evening - can't wait! What do you all have on your 4th of July agendas?
