Little Red Wagon - Challenge#1

Well, this is our First Challenge by The Girlfriends from the Little Red Wagon!

Regan came up with the Challenge of Using Scrappy Packaging! Well I tell you this could not have been better timing for me! I had just received my replacement Slice Machine from Making Memories so can you spot the packaging used from this picture on my layout? There are 4 items I used from this packaging picture!

I had so much fun putting this layout together and of course I was never so excited to have received a new Pink Slice as a replacement under warranty... Making Memories really surpassed my expectations for Customer Service. The turn around time was only 2 weeks and not only did they replace my slice machine but they gave me the whole pink Kit (including, pink blades, matt and both slice design cards), A making Memories Pink Slice Apron, and a ton of Making memories products! Thanks So much! Here is the layout created from the packaging:

Details are as follows: The 4 items used from the Scrappy Packaging are the Making Memories Ribbon, The Accetate Hearts (diecut from Plastic), The Multicoloured Flower was diecut from Cardboard and the 4th item was I recreated the Slice Logo using my Cricut & Sure Cuts A Lot Software. Cardstock & Polka Dot (Bazzill), Crushed Velvet Cardstock by Doodlebug in Black, 2 pinks and green, Stampin Up Split Punch, Felt Butterfly (Creative Cafe) and Bling & Stickles.

It was so cool to recrate the slice logo Using the Sure Cuts A Lot & my Cricut Machine and I cut it fromt the Crushed Velvet Paper, I also used some Cricut Cartridges for the Flowers.

I just love how this layout turned out! I is unfortunate the the picture does not do it justice! The texture to the layout is so cool if you see it in person!

Thanks Regs for a great Challenge, I thought this would have been so hard until the pink box arrived!
