I LOVE YOU

Welcome to the NinaB Designs* first team blog hop of 2013! We hope you have had a relaxing holiday break and ready to join us for another year of inspirations and prizes!
*NinaB Designs is a product designer for a few paper crafting companies including Spellbinders, Want2Scrap and Penny Black, and The Craft's Meow.
For this month's hop, Nina challenged the team to create a project with the LOVE theme, which can be interpreted in many ways: Valentine, Anniversary and Friendship.


I decided to try my hand and some mixed media, probably not the smartest thing to do when you are limited on the supplies you are able to use.  Lesson learned!  I used 2 pieces out of  one of the Want 2 Scrap chipboard albums.  Some Gelatos, a little molding paste, and some bling and I have a transformed chipboard album.  I will definitely have another go at this mixed media thing real soon, but will not limit myself on what I can and can not use!


This is pretty long so it did not fit inside my light tent standing up.  This bottom photo was taken in natural light with a piece of cardstock behind it.  For the life of me I could not find my 30 inch light tent!


The NinaB Designs team is giving away these TWO PRIZE PACKAGES: Prize Package #1 includes
Spellbinders Venetian Accents and Motifs:

 
Prize #2 includes 2 retired sets from Layers of Colors stamps:
 

Supplies Used:

Winners will be picked randomly from 2 of the designers' blogs:
Everybody is welcome to comment and be eligible to win. The winners will be announced on  January 22 on Nina's Blog, where you will also find all the relevant info regarding the giveaways. Finally, please consider liking the following Facebook pages that are represented on today's hop, so you don't miss the latest news and happenings:
Thank you for joining us today!
