Artist on the Block design team!!!!!!

 Hello everyone !
Today I have some pretty exciting news. I'm one of the lucky designers who was invited to join Artist Trading Block design team!
Don't know what the Artist Trading Block is? It is totally fresh, new trend in the fields of scrapbooking from amazing Sizzix designer Eileen Hull with the help and inspiration from super talented designer Amy Bowerman, a stylish new twist on the Artist Trading Cards :D You should definitely visit The Artists On The Block site for tons of inspiration and lots of ideas ^.^  As for me, in the next few months I will share with you how many amazing projects you can create with Artist Trading Blocks ^.^

In order to introduce ourselves as ATB Inspiration Team members we were asked to share a few of our favorite projects. Here are my picks :

                          ATC storage box (ATB inspired ;))
 when I started creating this box I had just a vague idea of what it is going to be like, but then my imagination took me to the places I've never been before :D and I still can't believe how amazing this box turned out!
                                      Tea time ^.^

this Pocket watch Sizzix die is probably one of my all-time favorites ^.^ As soon as I got my hands on it I knew what I wanted to create with it...something shabby and magical. Now I'm thinking to add a real clock mechanism to it, wouldn't it be wonderful to hear this clock tick tock ? ^.^

                                    vintagy balsa tag

this project is in my favorites because I love to work with all kind of different materials (not only paper and card stock). Balsa is amazingly lightweight wood that can be easily cut (especially with Sizzix dies!) You should definitely try it if you like to experiment. You can paint it, ink it, stamp on it or use it with your dies to create amazing wooden embellishments.

As you can see, I love everything shabby, vintage and distressed ^.^ However my goal is to mix it all together and discover new creative styles and ways to express yourself .

Wow that's been already a long post, but bear with me a little bit longer. There's still one more thing I have to share with you ^.^
Did you know that amazing Eileen Hull just launched the Art with Heart monthly challenge? It is like a monthly celebration of creativity! Each month the Inspiration Team (all our favorite and so talented designers!) will be showcasing their Art with Heart created with Eileen Hull’s innovative Sizzix dies.
This is definitely a place for everyone to create, inspire and share.Everyone would love to see what you can do with Eileen Hull’s fabulous products, but this is not even a requirement, you are free to use what ever products your artful “heart” desires! Can it get better than this? Oh yes, it can! ^.^ Check this guidelines:

  • Create a new project following the Art with Heart Challenge Theme (however you interpret the theme) OR if you have created something that fits the theme previously create a new post with a photo and link to the original post ( a great way to expose older projects to fresh eyes!).  
  • Include a link to the current Art with Heart Challenge in your post so others can play along too!
  • When linking up your project please include a direct link to your post.
  • You are not required to use Eileen Hull Products in your projects.  However, those who do use Eileen Hull products will be given two entries into the prize draw.
No rules guys, you get to create whatever you want and however you want it! So get going, get creative and share your Art with Heart!  

P.S. Thank you for stopping by and I hope you didn't get tired (it was quite a long post) ^.^ See you soon.
