Today’s blog brings me a mix of strong emotions. First, it makes me so happy to see what our amazing design team has done with today’s steal, the Love My Tapes Washi. These girls bring it to the table each and every time they create! Second, it brings me those happy-sad tears as this is the final post from our outstanding Summer Team. These girls have been a true delight to work with and my life has been enriched by their talents, kindness, and friendship!

Without further delay, I present the final creations from the ScrapbookSteals.com Summer Team!

Let’s kick things off with projects from the amazing Katrina Hunt. She always has a way with thinking outside of the box. Katrina took washi to a new level by creating an altered canvas, a card with die cutting washi and coasters! These are some absolutely great gift ideas because the holidays will be here before we know it.

Katrina says the altered canvas is really easy to do, but be make sure to seal it! She used a matte medium gel to cover the entire project.

When using washi with a die cutting machine, simply place the washi on cardstock and then cut! Katrina used her Cameo to help create this card with no trouble at all.

Lastly, Katrina found inspiration on the Design Dreams Japan blog to create  customized coasters.

Next lets take a peek at the amazing projects by Kerys Sharrock. Kerys had Halloween treats on the brain and created this darling altered Prima flower bottle.

She also put the sketch that Regina created for Mid Week Mojo—Pearl 7, to use on this darling Halloween frame.

I secretly love that Kerys was given washi tapes that make great Halloween projects because this witch card and Halloween wreath are truly exceptional! Be sure to stop by Kerys’ blog for extra info on these projects.

Lastly we finish things up with projects from the girl that totally deserves Mom of the Year award. Not only has Regina Mangum already made a positively darling mini album ready for photos of her sons upcoming reptile themed birthday party, but she is arranging for live wiggly, squirmy and creepy-crawly reptiles to be at the birthday party. Yup. Coolest mom and mini album ever.

The past three months have flown by so quickly and I want these three amazing ladies to know how much they will be missed. You are all so very dear to me and I love you as if you were my sisters! (I don’t have any, so I’ll just claim you anyway.) Thank you for putting up with all of my craziness and for helping us work out the kinks in the design team process. Good luck in all that you do and know that there will always have a warm chair waiting for you here at ScrapbookSteals.com!  MWAH!

For those of you wondering when we will be announcing the three amazing fresh faces of the fall term, be sure to check into the blog next Tuesday at 9AM MST for a little meet and greet. You are all definitely in for a continuation of W-O-W!
