Crafting with Cristina Challenge

So, I have been having this wild infatuation with Hot Pink and Orange together lately.  It's so weird because I don't normally like orange--AT ALL--and I love pink, but it is a paler shade rather than hot pink. Then I saw that Cristina at Crafting with Cristina is having a Hot Pink and Orange Challenge!  Woohoo!  Now I know.  I actually have two projects to enter in the challenge, which can use any other colors as well, as long as Hot Pink and Orange are prominently featured.

Entry #1

A scrapbook page from my daughter's 2008 album, which is currently in progress.  I created this page yesterday. (I know, I know, but at least it's gradually getting done).


Hot Pink Core'dinations Textured Cardstock Background 12x12
DCWV Patterned Floral Cardstock for photo mats and bathing suit
Paper Studio Pink Paisly patterned paper for photo mats and towel
Peach Core'dinations Textured cardstock for photo mats and journaling box
DCWV green textured cardstock for lotion bottle
Turquoise Core'dinations Textured cardstock for title
Color Box Cat Eye White Ink for title
SU Stampin Write Old Olive Marker

Entry #2

A set of cards, in a box, that I made for my dear friend Jennifer, who has a birthday tomorrow, so I made her this today.

I normally don't get this ambitious when creating!  But I had some time and the motivation today!


DCWV Glitter Stack Papers--Brown Stripe and White Pattern
DCWV Textured White Core CS--Pink and Orange
Pink Toile Paper (Paper Studio, I think)
Box cut from Wild Card for Cricut cut using Fit to Page

Assorted Cuts from DoodleCharms for Cricut cut at 2"

I put these in a SUPER cute gift bag that will be posted on Tuesday as part of my Kich n Bleus designs DT project.

Have a great week!
