It's a Rock Star Diva thang......

I am proud to be one the November Guest Designers for the Paris Hilton Creativity Collection. This collection was designed for young scrappers -- but I had a blast creating these projects (I do love my bling!) Every collection is cute & girly and if you have a tween or teen in your life that is crafty - - you must get them some of this collection! Check out my projects all this week on their facebook page!

I worked with the Rock Star Diva Kit along with a couple of packages of Rhinestone Stickers & Sticker Sheets.

My first layout is of my sister's dog (actually one of her FOUR dogs!) Beezy (and she also took this picture of Beezy!)
The rhinestone title sticker originally said "Pop Star", but I cut off the top of the "O" to make it "Pup Star"! I also punched holes in the epoxy circle sticker to create a button accent for my page. I used lots of bling on this layout, so of course had to use Helmar Gemstone Glue, and Helmar 450 Quick Dry for the organza ribbon and everything else. I also used some Zap Dots to "pop" up some of my cut out elements. The only things not included with the kit were the Prima paper flowers, the organza animal print ribbon ($1 from Michael's clearance bin!) photo corners (actual vintage black photo corners from my grandma's stash!) and the AC Thickers for her name - - hard to tell from the picture, but they ARE glittered! I finished this layout off by machine stitiching a double border using both brown and black thread to match the animal print elements.

I was lucky enough to be invited to see the American Idol Concert Tour here in San Diego by my sister-in-law, Debbie. We had the BEST time!! Dinner at a Greek restaurant first, then off to the concert - - where I was truly blown away by the sheer talent of these Top Ten performers - - much more dynamic than what you see on TV!! Sioban was truly amazing, truly a performer. But of course, my heart belongs to Casey! And Lee really rocked my world! He was amazing!

So how perfect was this kit to scrap my American Idol Experience?!

I copied and printed the AI logo from their website. Cut it out and attached it to chipboard. I used Helmar Textured Effects on top to give some "oopmh!" to the logo and attached it to the page with Liquid Scrap Dots for dimension.

Next I decided on creating some cool cards for the younger kids in my family & also a "Diva Emergency Survival Kit" which I will share with you tomorrow! Fun stuff!

Thanks for stopping by today! And be sure to stop by tomorrow for more ways to rock this paper & embellie collection!
