Design Team Work and Create!

The Retro Cafe Art Gallery Design Team girls have been busy, so I have several wonderful pieces to share with you! The necklace above and the two below were created by Jennifer Ingle. In the above necklace, Jennifer used the Small Chipboard Wing Cut-Outs, a Trinket Pin, Tim Holtz Ball Chain, Jump Rings, and a Frozen Charlotte Doll Head.

The necklace above incorporates another set of the Small Chipboard Wing Cut-Outs, Tim Holtz Ball Chain, a Frozen Charlotte Doll, and a Trinket Pin.

The highlight of this piece is the Tiny House Charm Trinket and Hello Dollie image. Jennifer also used Tim Holtz Ball Chain and Jump Rings. Fantastic jewelry pieces Jennifer!

The piece above and the three below are by Gerri Herbst. In the above sample, Gerri used the Jewel Tone Vintage Digital Collage Sheet. A great way to display the sweet pins also made by Gerri!

For this piece, Gerri incorporated a Heart ATC Frame, the Jewel Tone Vintage Collage Sheet, and some sweet scalloped pink German Dresden.

Gerri is awesome at turning the inside pieces of the ATC Frames into something functional and this piece is no exception. For this necklace Gerri used the inside piece from the Fancy Frame 3 ATC Frame!

And Finally, this necklace was created from the Gothic Arch Shrine Kit and also incorporates an image from the Hello Dollie Bodies Digital Collage Sheet. Love them all Gerri!

Bianca Mandity created more fantastic journal pages. The above page uses several Coffee Break Design Stencils including XX XY, Wings, Half Two, and Small Onomotoholes. And speaking of stencils, now you can get any of the 4" x 5" stencils in 7" x 7" via this listing.

Bianca created the witch by stenciling the girl from the Talking Head Stencil set and adding the witch hat from the Hat Accessory Cut-Outs. She created the scalloped design below the witch by using the Fancy Frame 2 ATC Frame as a stencil.

The page above incorporates the Small Psychedelic Circle Set, Ink Blot Stencil, and my favorite part, and Acrylic Lady Button in the center. Awesome pages as usual Bianca!

Finally, Coffee Break Design and Retro Cafe Art Gallery will be vending at Create on Friday August 26th. The event is open to the public, so if you are in the area be sure to stop by. We will have several products that aren't available online yet, so don't miss it! Bianca will also be teaching several fantastic classes throughout the week, and of course several Coffee Break Design products will be used in the classes!
