#UWSbigbash Day 5

It's Day 5 -- our last and final day to celebrate our big bash!
We'll be sending out a special newsletter with a little thank you in just a few short hours. Be sure to sign up on the right hand side to receive it! 

Day 1 was all about introducing our brand new product like POCKET CHiP, TUNNEL BOOKS, Vintage goods and more! We also gave away to one random person their favorite piece from our new collection.
Day 2 we inspired you with some beautiful goods from our Creative Team and gave away an AMAZING package including UmWowStudio, Amazing Crafting Products and May Arts Ribbons.

Day 3 two more girls shared some beautiful celebration themed projects and we had a huge giveaway package from UmWowStudio, Paper Issues and Authentique.
Day 4 showcased 2 more projects by the Creative Team and a prize from UmWowStudio, 7 Dots Studio and Gauche Alchemy Kits. 

Our first project today comes from Tina

Say Cheese:
Happy Birthday UmWowStudio! Congrats on your First Year! Let’s get this party started!

Moose, my French Bulldog is also excited for the Birthday party to begin, so he grabbed his Photo Booth Props and took some photos. ;) Here’s a little layout I created especially for the Birthday Bash! To create my Birthday Bash layout, I wanted to create a background FULL of texture. So, I grabbed some leftover wax medium, one of my favorite UWS chipboard pieces, Damaged Punchinella and began. I poured the melted wax directly on my chipboard background and immediately pressed sections of the Damaged Punchinella chip into the wax. I let the wax cool a bit (a minute or so), then carefully removed the chip. The chip remained mostly in-tact, and I repeated this step several times across my background.

Once the wax completely hardened, I applied Magicals (powdered mica), from Lindy’s Stamp Gang to the wax and built up several layers of color. In addition, I painted the sections of used chip with Distress Paint and adhered them in place. The positive and negative from the Punchinella chip created a great background, full of texture, color, and dimension. To complete the festive theme, I colored several pieces of the Photo Booth Prop chip collection and accessorized my photo’s. Moose is definitely in the Birthday Party spirit!

Congratulations DeeDee! Here’s to many more!

and our second from Lisa with this delicious Family and Snow celebration project life spread:

After this very long winter I would say it is hard to "celebrate" but with some cute new Celebrate Banner Pocket Chipboard pieces from UmWowStudio I was very inspired to do an insert on celebrating both winter and family. I used some Distress Paint on some of the Banner Mash pieces, but mostly I just left them be to stand out on my page. Adding some of the Star Confetti with some sequins to the middle of my design in a shaker pockets gave the layout gave the whole page just the touch it needed to draw the whole celebrating theme together. I also used some Sidewalk Chalk flair and a stencil to bring it all together. It was such a fun way to say Happy Birthday Um Wow Studio!
