Swag Bag Challenge

Welcome to the AFCI Designer Section Challenge. Each designer has created a project using the same products that were given to us at Creativation. The challenge is to use the products and create something unique. We have some great companies that have sponsored this hop. Thanks so much for joining us!

As you may or may not know, I went to Creativation this year.

Creativation is the place where creative businesses g​o to learn, connect and discover.

These are the products I have decided to work with.

You may click on any of the companies below, it will take you to each site.
  • Rinea - Double Sided Foil Paper
  • Sculpey
  • DecoArt
  • Graphic 45
  • TCW Stencil

I went Halloween with my project! 


I recieved the stencil from TCW that reminded me of spiders, then Rinea foil papers has a haunted pack of foil papers. DecoArt included a Brillant Purple. That convinced me to go Halloween!

Rinea Haunted Foiled Paper Variety PackThe Crafter's Workshop - 12 x 12 Doodling Templates - Prismatic

Sculpey Liquid Bakeable Clay - Pearl

I gathered all my supplies and started by painting the Graphic 45 Book Box Brilliant Purple. Set aside to dry.

Next using the liquid Sculpey, I filled in the mold and baked according to manufacturers directions. In 15 minutes I had these adorable lace like embellishments.

Next, I cut and embossed my Rinea foil papers and adhered them to the top of the box. I lightly brushed paint onto the largest Sculpey embellishment and adhered it to the center of my box. Added some embellishments.

I used the TCW stencil to stencil on the tag book that was included in the Graphic 45 box.

I love each and every product I received! I am thankful for the companies who shared product with the designers! It gives us the opportunity to test the products and learn more about them.

Thanks for stopping by!
