Gina K Designs Preview - Day One

It is the first day of Previews for Gina K Designs May Release. I am so excited to be the Spotlight designer.

The preview set for Monday was designed by the one and only Melanie Muenchinger. This set goes perfectly with the Just So Sporty set. It is fabulous! There are so many sports covered in this set.

As soon as I saw the images the idea of putting something inside the locker popped into my head instantly. Here is the result:



I stamped the locker onto brushed silver card stock to make them look like metal lockers. I cut open one of the doors and popped the whole set up using foam tape. I also added a little shelf on the inside to hold the baseball. I used the circle cuttlebug embossing folder to go along with the ball theme for baseball. After I put the whole thing together, I realized I forgot the mitt. so I had to decorate the inside with the mitt and a few balls. Here it is:




This is such a fun set and I know that sports fans will find so many uses for this set. I have another sample made that I will share on Thursday night. I hope to see you all at the release party Thursday night. Until then please stop by every day to see a preview of each set being released.
