Design Team Challenge "Feeling Retro"

Today is this months Design Team Challenge. Our theme for this challenge is "Retro".   Crafty Secrets has many products that fit under this category, so it will be fun to see what each of the Design Team member girls have chosen to create their projects.    Here are the links to each of the DT members blogs where they will have their projects posted.  Pop around and take a look.

I also have a few new projects to share here. The first project is from Design Team member Victoria Warren Mears.  You can read all about what you need to create this fun altered frame HERE on her blog.

 I created the next three cards with Images from the "Girlfriend" double sided Creative Scraps.

The stamped border on the card above is from the "Mini Memories" Clear Art stamp set.

The stamps used on the "I love you" card above is from the "Twinkle Stars" Clear Art stamp set.  I think they are perfect for a Retro feel background or accent. It was fun to add rhinestones to the centers for extra bling.    I used the same stamp set to create the border on the card below.  Instead of using bling on this, I used my SAKARA clear stardust pen.   ( all papers are from the "Creating with Vintage Patterns CD" )

I am in love with this darling project DT member Jan Hennings Created, using Crafty Secrets Halloween goodies.   One of my very favorite things to do, is to find something (preferably on a clearance table :) and alter it to create something new and fun.  Jan did just that.  take a look.....

here is the before.   Now that's thinking out of the box. ( I mean ..the "bus") lol

There are many different ways to create a "retro feel" to you projects.   Look at this gorgeous card created by DT member Debbie Marcinkiewicz .   It's retro/shabby! Cool!  

I hope you've enjoyed the Retro inspiration today.    Enjoy a great start to your week!

Thanks for coming by!
