Red Carpet Studio Blog Hop

Welcome to Red Carpet Studio's One Year Anniversary Celebration!! We're starting the party off right with a blog hop, but don't forget we also have games and prizes going on in our Facebook event group

This weekend our design team is sharing with you inspiring projects for movie nights! Invitations, decorations, and more, you'll leave the hop wanting to have a movie night of your very own.

If you've come from Stephanie's blog, you're in the right place! If you'd like to start at the beginning of the hop, please visit Red Carpet Studio.

Hi ! My name is Connie Hall and I am so excited to be here. This is not only my first blog hop it is my first official post for Red Carpet Studio as a Design Team member. YAY!  
I hope you are enjoying the blog hop.  Please don't forget to stop by Facebook page for all the fun and activities.  

I made... a scrapbook page, invitation and an altered movie box for the event. 

Movie Scrapbook page. 

Here is my page.  At my house a Movie Night is not complete without having an Army of Minions to not only steal the moon but to steal my living room. My Nephew Asher is addicted to Despicable me and we watch it often.  So Often that when we went to Florida my Family all wore Minion Tshirts to the Halloween Party at Disney. I used the Minions cut out from Pretty Paper Pretty ribbons.

Movie Night Invitation

My next project is an invitation.  We have a company in the community that rents an outdoor Theatre. Complete with a Movie Screen and an popcorn machine.  My son picked out Wizard of Oz as the classic movie.   He has a crush on Judy Garland.  I used the Dorothy Image  from Besties of Oz and some delicious scrapcake for this step card.

Altered Box with Movie Night Treats

For my third project I created a altered Movie Night Treat Box.  I used G45 Papers, lace trim and  I used the Date Night Digi stamp from Squigglefly, and the movie time cut outs from Designs on Cloud 9. I filled the box with Movies, water bottles and popcorn.

Cherish Such a Beautiful little lady

I stayed in this weekend mostly because I was helping my kids watch my nephew Asher and when he was not wanting me I scrapped.  Most of my DT projects are done and I just wanted to scrap for me.  I have been Hoarding MME papers so brought them out and have several pages planned.  For this page I used Miss Caroline Collection.  I also used a sketch from  Lets Get Sketchy.

Exciting News!


Little Wonders Scrapbooking Design Team Reveal

I would like to officially WELCOME these talented ladies to the Little Wonders Family as members of the new 2013-2014 Little Wonders Scrapbooking Design Team!!
There are Three designers joining us this year.
All of them have come on board to inspire you with their own unique style using our latest designs over the next twelve months. I can't wait to see what they create and feel So lucky to have them here!!
So say "Hello!" to The Little Wonders Scrapbooking 2013-2014 Design Team!!
My name is Jen Waugh and I am originally from Scotland. I spent 4 years living in Houston, Texas before moving to Perth, Australia in September 2011. 
I am a married,  mum of 4 children, ranging in ages from 4 to 23. 

I first got interested in scrap booking in 2011 when someone very close to me sadly passed away. 
I wanted to preserve our memories together and scrap booking seemed the natural choice. 
I didn't know where to start, I had never been a creative or arty person and I put the idea on hold whilst I moved from the USA to Australia. I was here for 2 months when I discovered a local shop running classes. 

My Creative Journey began in January 2012 and I haven't looked back since. It's funny to think that 18 months later, I am now on the Design Team for that very shop and teaching classes there. My favourite way to share and preserve my memories are layouts and mini albums.
 My style is very diverse ranging from shabby chic to Steampunk, I love leaning new techniques and incorporating mixed media into my projects. However, my big passion is altered art. I love finding "treasure" in Op shops and turning them into beautiful pieces of art. 

I am so excited to be part of the Little Wonders Scrapbooking Design Team. Erin has created a paper line that is unlike any other in the market place. Beautiful, vibrant colours and unique designs. To be part of the first launch is truly an honour and I can't wait to get started
Hi My name is Connie Hall aka Cherished online. 
I live in Akwesasne with my family. Akwesasne Borders Canada and the United States. 2 provinces and 1 state.  

I have been a scrapbooker for over 10 years but my style changed after the loss of my Mother 2 years ago.  Now I tend to take each moment and Cherish each Happy memory and go all out when preserving it.  

I love Pretty paper, flowers, molding paste, masks, doilies and lace. I usually make 12x12 pages. but have started to make mini albums and Off the page projects.  

I look forward to creating with the gorgeous papers and products from Little Wonders and providing inspiration for others.  

I'm originally from NZ, and moved to Perth 21 years ago.  I live with my husband of almost 19 years, our three teenage daughters, two dogs, and two cats - there's never a dull moment in our house! 

I've been creating for as long as I remember - starting with things such as pompoms when I was young, my Mum taught me to knit when I was in my early teens, I learnt to sew after I left home and did that was my thing for many years.  I started scrapping about 7 years ago when I picked up a kit at a local cheap shop, and found I really enjoyed it.

I enjoy creating layouts, usually single photos, although I've been known to use more or even do the occasional double layout in order to tell my story.  I'm not a big fan of mini albums - I find them too hard to store, and I don't always have enough photos to fill them up.  I do tend to create a "blank" mini album for our rare holidays away though, and use them as a travel diary, journaling in them each night while we're away, and adding photos & memorabilia when we get home again.  I also enjoy creating home decor canvasses & off the page items.

 My favourite thing about any design team is the challenge of using products that I might not pick myself, it tends to really get my creative juices flowing and I'm sure creating for Little Wonders Scrapbooking will be no exception. I love the previews I've seen of the paper ranges and can't wait to get started.
