Maya Road and Ken Oliver Crafts Designer Challenge Day 1




Hey blog friends and welcome to day one of a designer challenge with some of my crafty friends and some of our crafty friends at Maya Road.  We're teaming up this week to highlight some of the newest paper cutting dies from Maya Road, along with Stick It adhesive and the amazing Tool-It-All!




First up today is Laurel Beard...I love her style! She uses one of the new Maya Road dies as a mask on a card base that she colors with Color Burst!  Her project shows a really innovative use of die cut paper as a mask!

Here's a link to Laurel's Blog.  I know you will love her fun style! Leave a comment for her and you'll be eligible for a fabulous prize pack that includes a pack of Stick It Adhesive and a Tool-It-All. Visit our friends at Maya Road too...their designers have been busy creating some fabulous projects!

  10. Laurel's card is absolutely gorgeous. I bought all the new colors a while ago, but I haven't had a chance to use them yet, other than to make a swatch paper. ^_^ I hope to remedy that soon. Trying to find a watercolor paper I can actually use with my printer. heh
