The Whole Cycle and Chatterbox

Hey there! The Design Team and I have a special post today. We've all made project that aren't cards! I think you are going to love seeing the many uses for Chatterbox and The Whole Cycle. Before we get to that I wanted to show you the video I did showing of the interactive pieces of The Whole Cycle.



You can also watch it over on YouTube here.

For my project I decided to make a scrapbook page. I've been really into scrapbooking lately.

To make my page, I first started with a 12x12 sheet of cardstock and made faint lines on my paper to evenly stamp my bikes.
I then stamped the image.
 I took a stripe of green cardstock and cut fringe across it. I just rolled it with my fingers for some dimension.
I stamped a row of "tires" from The Whole Cycle on yellow cardstock.

For my last stripe of green (I used three different shades), I covered it with adhesive and covered with microbeads. I haven't do this in forever, but I so love the look!
I added my own handwriting and now wish I would have taken the time to print it off, but I know I'll enjoy passing own my own writing one day!


I know you are going to love what the Design Team came up with....
Karen made the cutest little bag and tag using For the Love of Dots, Chatterbox, and The Whole Cycle! Don't you love how she used the different neutrals! Ahh...
Dana made this amazing wagon! Isn't it just so cute! I love how she used the sentiments from Chatterbox to create the little border around the top of the wagon! You'll want to check out her blog for the pattern!
Paulina made this super cute notepad. I love how she filled her wagon with the flowers. The flowers can be used for the bike, wagon, and wheel barrow!

So tonight's the night! Both sets will be available at 12:00 am eastern time. Both sets are $12.99 each! We'll also be announcing the winners of the two sets this week at 11:00 pm eastern!

What I'd love to know is when you aren't making cards, what are you making? I'd say mine is some kind of home project or scrapbooking!

I'd say I'm usually making gift-ish items when not making cards. I'd like to say I'm scrapbooking- but it's been SOOOOO long since I've finished a page, I might be dreaming a bit on that! :D
