Hi everyone!

I've been watching the Summer School lessons over at My Favorite Things. The first class was on "lesson of thirds." I really enjoyed listening to the video, and found the information so interesting. I made a grid just like Kimberly had done, and have already been using it.

For this card I started out with some Lawn Fawn Beachside patterned has the sweetest little stars. Love this stuff!  I cut out some banners with my MFT pierced banner dies, and placed them on the first third of the paper.

 My focal point is the red glitter star which I backed on a MFT zig zag stitched circle. In the center I put a gold button cut out with MFT button dies. The tiny tag has the sentiment,"celebrate," from Lizzie Anne Tidbits. Behind the circle I adhered a MFT pierced fancy flourish

I'm entering this at:

The Male Room ( tiny tag)

 City Crafter Die cut gold ( button in center of star)

Lawn Fawn stars and stripes  (Lawn Fawn paper)

Paper: Lawn Fawn Beachside, SU white, real red, red and gold glitter paper
Ink: SU black
Stamps; Lizzie Anne Tidbits
Dies: MFT zig zag stitched circles, MFT pierced banners, buttons, MFT pierced fancy flourish ,SU tiny tag and star punch, MB cross stitched rectangles
Other: sequins

Hi there back again! have been a busy bee. I really like this card for any age or's are so clever at putting designs together and incorporating challenges too! In answer to your question ...create and craft is a TV shopping channel here and in the US ( I am sure you would be able to get it). They sell products obviously but have guests demoing the products at the same time. The 'ToDo' is a machine exclusive to them and newly launched...quite expensive but personal choice of course. Hope you manage to track the channel down...also available as an app.
