New Challenge at Bird is the Word

I hope everyone had a great Easter. Yesterday Bird is the Word begins its new challenge. The word is Begin/Beginning.

Here's my take on the word "Begin" as part of their Design Team.
This is a picture of my 3 kids taken a few years back. The title of my page "It begins here". Children start learning from home from the day that they were born. Hopefully as they grow older, they will instill in them the lessons we've taught them from the very beginning and that they never forget.
I used Pink Paislee's Daily Junque Paper, Webster's Pages trim, lace trim, script stamped silk flower.

New Blog for Berry71bleu

Hi Everyone,

I made a new blog mainly for project ideas and project submission. This is completely separate from Berry71Bleu Pages. I'm actually looking for 3 people to help me design with the tags that I make. If you already know me, you know I make premade scrapbook pages and tags. I truly love making layouts, especially tags. Lately, I've been selling more tags than pages on etsy. It is easier for me to make the tags and I could make a few of these in a day.

I have other obligations as a Design Team member for a couple of wonderful people. I am so honored to be a part of their team and my projects for them are one of my top priorities.

So..I'm looking for help from 3 people to be a part of my design or creative team and hopefully be able to help me create projects with these tags.
I will be sending you 2-3 tags a month and a scrapbook kit enough to make a few pages, cards, or any paper crafting ideas that you can incorporate my tags with. I will also send you embellishments with the tags and paper. I only ask that you do not alter the tags that I will send you, this will be a part of your design. Whatever extra paper or embellishments you have left, you can use however you wish. This is a 3 month term for right now, depending on how things work, I may extend the term.

I have a few requirements for those who wish to apply..You need to have a blog so I can link your projects to my blog and my etsy shop. I will use your projects as a sample pages on my etsy shop. You're also required to submit 2 completed projects a month (submit every 2 weeks)using the tags I sent you. You don't have to use the embellishment kit that I will send you (only the tags), you can use your own if you wish. I'm sending you the embellishment/scrapbook kit as a compensation for being on the team. You will get 1 kit a month together with the tags. You can also submit your completed projects to online galleries if it is allowed, it is not a requirement, but it would be nice to get more exposure. I will also ask you to use my store button/logo on your blog.

Here are the samples of the tags I've made and samples of kits that you can get. Each of the members will get 3 completely different tags and kits. Nothing will be alike. I will hand-pick the papers and embellishment for each of you.

The kits would vary, but you will get products from top manufacturer.

If you're interested, please email me a link to your blog and sample projects or layouts that you've made within past year. Also tell me a little about yourself or if you are also designing for other blogs, companies, etc. My email is I prefer US and Canada residents, but I'm willing to accept other international applications as well. I'd like to start on May 1, but I know that is cutting it short, so I will extend 'til 5/15. Submissions must be received my midnight Central Time on 5/15.

Thank you and I hope to hear from you.

My Favorite Place In the Entire House

I love books..I love being surrounded by it, the older the book, the better. I love collecting it. I wish these electronic book devices never came out, but I'm guilty coz I have one of them, yes, it is convenient. But if it's a good book, you want to keep it, to add to your library. I don't buy hardcover books like I used to, as you can tell, I don't have any space left. My supplies had taken over, you wouldn't want to see what's behind the bottom cabinets.

My husband made me this bookcase, it's supposed to be a game room, but it ended up being my craft area. I have my book on the shelves, but most of it has been occupied by my supplies. This is my favorite place in the entire house. This is not always this organized (if you can call it that), I have to take a few pictures to remind myself that this is what it actually looks like when it's neat and everything is put away.
I admit, I'm a sucker for chick lit books...I have to keep my Nursing books in case I forget to do a figure 8 bandaging.

...this is my favorite space....

My new project for More Paper Than Shoes..Shabby Cigar Box

This is a new project submission as a Creative Team Member of MORE PAPER THAN SHOES.

I used an old cigar box, the background is one Glitz Design Paper with a vintage writing.

This is the top of the box. I used MPTS flowers on the corner with a vintage, crocheted doily. I used Making Memories pendant, Cameo, C'est La Vie French pendant from Michael's. Vintage style images.
The pink flowers from MPTS..
A torso image, I used lace as a skirt, seam binding in lavender as a belt with an accent of mulberry roses and a vintage rhinestone.

My little treasure inside plus the tag I made with the other MPTS flowers.

More Paper Than Shoes Flowers

This is my first project as Creative Team Member for More Paper Than Shoes. I made other projects which I will post within the next couple of days.

I made a tag using MPTS pink flowers.
Since I have a sweet tooth, I used a vintage style print with a cute little girl image.
I added buttons..
Larger pink flower and an old pendant.
I also added a sweet treat cabochon.
