Doctor Who geek craft

For my second design team project over at Basically Bare, I decided to show off my geekiness. In case you were unaware, I am a big old nerd. One of the nerdiest things that I like is British sci-fi TV shows, the mack daddy of them all being Doctor Who (click here for more info about the show).

I first watched Doctor Who back in the late 1980's on PBS with Tom Baker as the Doctor. As a kid the show was confusing but I loved the concept and the terrible special effects! Now as an adult, I'm totally entranced by the storylines and the characters (and the same terrible special effects!). The show is now on its 11th Doctor, but Tom Baker still holds a special place in my heart as "my first Doctor." I included a ribbon to pay homage to Baker's multi-colored scarf!

I was so excited to make this little wall hanging featuring a TARDIS (the Doctor's special time-travel machine that is an old British police box) that I made by hand. I had so much fun making it and am so pleased at how it turned out.

Materials used:
  • Paper -- DCWV, Reminisce
  • Chipboard -- BoBunny
  • Embellishments -- Basically Bare chipboard gears, The Paper Studio clock face, Tim Holtz metal washers, Recollections clear "dew drop", KI Memories ribbon
  • Stickers -- Making Memories, My Little Shoebox

Basically Bare design project

Today my first Basically Bare design team project is up on the blog!

It's a thank you card featuring the chipboard spool from the "Sew Vintage" embellishment set. I really like the vintage feel to the card!

My next Basically Bare DT project will be posted on the 16th so stay tuned!

You're gonna shine!

This is my latest DT project for Better Living Through Scrapbooking. Since a new school year has begun, our challenge is to create a layout using a school picture.

This layout is almost like a letter to my eight-year-old self. I want to tell her that she'll get past the hurts, the disappointments, and the sadness that comes with growing up. She'll grown into those teeth (eventually!). She's going to find love, happiness, and passion for life. Don't worry, kid, you're gonna shine!
