Karen Foster Design: Hockey and Curling

Welcome to the final day of our two-week sneak peek at products that Karen Foster Design will debut at the CHA 2012 Winter show. To celebrate this release the Design Team will be hosting a giveaway contest on our blogs where you can enter to win prize packs that match each day’s theme(s).

To enter your name in the drawings, all you need to do is leave a comment on this blog post. You don't need to comment on every blog post to win, but you can increase your chances of winning by leaving comments on each of the Design Team member’s blogs every day during our sneak peek event. Enter up to once per day per blog (KFD posts only)! As always, Karen Foster Design welcomes international entries. Comments close at 12 Noon on Friday January 27th EST. Winners will be posted here on Monday, January 30, 2012.

The prizes will be hidden on the blog posts - not even the Design Team members know where they are! A winner will be selected at random from the comments on one post per day. So the more you comment, the better chance you have of winning, since you never know where those prize packages are hidden!

But wait, there’s more! To add to the excitement, there are more prizes! On Saturday four additional winners will be chosen at random to receive bonus prize packs of five stamp sets each. How awesome is that? Good luck!


First up, Hockey!! Our family LOVES hockey, and we enjoy going to local games. Our council of Boy Scouts here in Indiana holds a Scout Night with the Indiana Ice every year where the boys are encouraged to wear their uniforms. After the game they are given a chance to walk down onto the ice and shoot some pucks, how exciting! This year both of my boys went, and it was a blast of a night. They made sure I got a photo of the Ice's mascot Big-E-Foot, too. You can see all the interesting patterns on the new papers and stickers. I mixed in an awesome Contemporary Corner Brad and Bubble Brads as well. (Click on any photo for a closer look.)

Here's a quick look at one area of the layout. One hockey stick is printed on the patterned paper. I layered the photo block on top, added an exact-match hockey stick sticker that's pointed in the other direction, and placed a Bubble Brad on top. I love that the stickers and papers coordinate for techniques like this!

What do you REALLY need at a hockey game? Something that makes you LOUDER!! Our boys have cowbells just like these that they love to ring when cheering on the home team. I bought an extra one and decorated it with stickers and images cut from Hockey patterned papers. I tied on a little Scrappers Spools for fun. The card has several images cut from papers, stickers layered with pop dots, and the Hockey Lil' Stack.

Next up, Curling! I had to call in my Canadian pal, Jeanette, to rustle up some photos for me. Thanks, Nette! I cut a large circle from one patterned paper to mimic the curling stone and scoring ring.

Again, I layered my sticker title block with LOTS of embellishments including some Double O Pizzazz Brads in black.

I also upscaled an oversized notepad holder I bought at a dollar store. I covered it, inside and out, with Curling papers and stickers. I even covered the pencil!
Thanks for stopping by to see my Hockey and Curling collection projects. For more of these and some from the new Prom collection, visit all our designer blogs for more inspiration. Be sure to leave a comment on any post where you love the collection - you will be entered to win that prize pack. Good luck!
