Karen Foster Design: Robots & Shopping Diva

Welcome to 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!

Today we are introducing two collections - one for the boys, and one for the girls. Since I have two sons, it was an absolute necessity that I got a chance to design with our new Robots collection. It is incredibly cool!

First up is a layout I made using photos from our recent trip to the Carnegie Science Center in Pittsburgh, PA. Their robots exhibit was really fun. Click on any photo for a closer look.

I die cut some chipboard gears and embossed them in silver. I used five kinds of KFD brads to embellish this. A little turquoise crafter's wire felt like the finishing touch.

How cute is this card? I have a feeling that it will find its way to a little boy birthday party inthe near future. I used the top portion of the spacescape sheet of paper, added some pop-dotted stickers and Scrappers Spools, then topped it all off with Stardust Stickles.

The big doozie of a project for this collection is this amazing Robot clock. I started with a $3 clock from Goodwill (the price tag is still on the back!) and altered it to be out of this world! I cut a small hole in the center of the paper used on the clock face and carefully cut around one of the robots to create a place to slip the hands through. It took me several tries, but once I got it...I really loved it!! Lots more KFD embellishments and Stickles were added to finish things up. My son has already laid claim to this project for his bedroom. I love that I can make my kids happy with crafting!

Thanks for stopping by to see my Robot collection projects. For more of these and some from the new Shopping Diva 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!
