DesignTeam Calls


Just thought I'd share a really fun opportunity that I had.  I was asked to be interviewed for the new DesignTeam Calls website.  It's a great place to find DT calls, pick up some tips, find opportunities to be published!  If you want to check out my interview... check it here:  http://designteamcalls.com/designer-details-an-interview-with-jennifer-matott/
I'm super excited about having this chance to share my experiences and that they asked me!
Some more exciting projects coming up soon!

October Already???

Here we are in October... REALLY?  Where is the month going?  September FLEW by!  I'm so behind in posting.  So, please forgive me for being absent.  I have a rather hectic teaching schedule this year and keeping up with my oldest's sport practices and games is becoming nuts!  So, in my sparse spare time, I'm creating some.  I'll share a few from my DT assignments. First up Nikki Sivils, Scrapbooker.  I love Nikki's lines!  They are so fun with great patterns!  I have a few more to finish and post later! 

Read To Me (using Nikki Sivils School is Cool line)
Just Like Daddy (School is Cool line)

Detail of Just Like Daddy
An Apple A Day (Get Well Soon line)
  
My Monster Artist (My Little Monster line)

Check out our monthly challenge at Nikki's blog! I missed out on this one because school started and I lost track of time, but you can still play along!  Don't miss out!

Next up is a project or two from Faber-Castell:
Gelatos with Brenda Pinnick stamps!  Love those Piccidilly stamps!

Secret Garden - altered wooden miniature drawers

You can read more about this project on the Design Memory Craft blog.  I love Gelatos so much and working on wood is fun and a whole different surface to alter... I'm looking for my next fix!

Finally, some random layouts that I thought I'd share.  Why?  Well, because they were fun to create and I need to just make something fun without boundaries sometimes.  This first one was a bunch of random extra pieces and fun punches.
Why?

Curls
 This one was one I made with all Bella Blvd. product.  I love their colors.  The white is Gesso smeared over black paper and stamped into.
Family Outing
Finally, the last one is from the last sketch at Pencillines Sketch blog.  Check out the great sketch here.

My life is crazy right now with sports, teaching, and family.  I promise to post more often... lots going on and fun things on the horizon!  I've been busy!
