Scrapbooking in Greece Guest Designer & a new DT position!!!

Hello my scrapping friends!

I have two reasons to be SUPER excited!!! One reason  is that Elina Koutsouradi asked me to be the guest designer for July at the Greek challenge blog "Scrapbooking in Greece" ! Elina is a very talented scrapbooker who has created a ning site to host all Greek scrapbookers and I would  like to say thank you for that! The second HUGE reason is that Lena Makri, owner of the Greek on line scrapbooking shop "Enjoy Scrapping", asked me to be the permanent designer for her kits!!! How exciting is that? Woohoo!!! She will also have guest designers at times.Check out the announcement here!
Thank you both Ladies for that great honor! I appreciate it!

So, I combined those two designing positions and I made a layout for Elina's challenge blog, using Lena's yummy summer kit and other products from "Enjoy Scrapping"!!!
This is what I made based on a sketch by Michelle Fowler.:

The tutorial I made for "Scrapbooking in Greece"
is how to create that 3D effect on your circle embellishments!

The next photos are not so good but you can see the glossy accents on the paper, bubbles and waves! 

Please make sure you visit "Scrapbooking in Greece" and participate in the challenge because there will be two winners in the end of the month, who will win that bright and fun summer collection from "Enjoy Scrapping"!!!

 The summer kit I used, is filled with lovely bright papers, summer-beach stickers, awesome die cuts! You can do so many projects with all that stuff! Here are a few photos of the kit!

or you can watch the VIDEO here!

And some of the extra products I used are the Fiskars punch:

The white dabber:

The sew easy (I love it)

And glossy accents which can be used on the bubbles to make them look like real water!!!

P.S. Many Girls have asked me what machine do I use and the answer is...
The lovely Big-shot by Sizzix which can cut thick chipboard, fabric, felt and many more materials like butter! The good news is that you can find it in a super deal at "Enjoy Scrapping" with only 79 euro!!! Hurry up because there are not many...

Thanks for visiting!!!
I am sorry for the long post, I hope you enjoyed it!
Have a nice, creative weekend!

Τα φωτεινά και χαρούμενα χρώματα κλέβουν την παράσταση σε αυτήν την σύνθεση ιδανικά για να συνοδέψουν αυτήν την δροσερή φατσούλα!
