Hello Tuesday!!!!! I read every single one of your comments and I am thrilled that you like the colors and designs. This entire week I will be showcasing lots of projects designed with the collection.
I love to make cards now... I used to dread them. That was until I started designing and doing 6x6 double sided paper pads. I mean it just makes it so much easier! I love the shrunk down images and the scaled down icons that you can find now. Sesil Cratin loves to make cards. I think it is her favorite thing to create. She created this pretty card. I love how she stitched on the card.
I wanted to show another MEMORY KEEPER TC binder project- this was designed by Dedra Long. I am so in love with her originality and beautiful style! I love how the same binder and the same product can look completely different styles. I love this...
Look at the side view to see the dimension that Dedra used on her project. (Fabrications flower) I am so loving how she used the FABRICATIONS buttons inside of the paper for dimension too.
Love the brads attached to the page for embellishments. You & ME is die cut circles and love how she used the together. Dedra always does amazing cool stitching and adds her personality to everything that she creates. I love that she journals- she adds what is IMPORTANT to her projects.
Stamping... stamps from TCD.

Jamie Harder-http://ahappyscrappyplace.blogspot.com. Jamie is such a a fabulous designer. I love her style and often hear others express that they love that they can recreate her projects. She used FOUR papers from the collection of this page, brads, chipboard and die-cuts.
The next layout is so pretty. It is designed by Julie Jacob.
I LOVED how she added RED to the pastel colors. GORGEOUS. This layout is so pretty!

NOW.. it's time to debut SNEAK PEEKS to my second event...INSPIRED JOURNEY. It is NEXT month in Manhatten Beach, CA!!!! We are showing the projects this week. The projects are detailed and big. Each day this week- the projects are highlighted for the crafters coming. However, I wanted to share them with you too.
I teach TWO projects at this event too. This year I designed and had made a display stand. We will be building the wood display from pieces, painting, getting messy and then creating the calendar pages.

available openings. We are going to have a blast!
The winner from yesterday - the entire NEW SWEET AFTERNOON release and the WHITE MEMORY KEEPER binder album is:
The collection is another terrific example of what a truly great designer you are. When the same papers can be used by different people and each project has such a totally different look and feel is really quite a feat. I love how they can give an elegant look and feel as well as cute and happy, and as soft and simple. I am going to be experiencing two big milestones in my family this year, one being my first wedding of one of my children,and I really want to tell the story and document the occasion. Not only for them but also create a memory book for me documenting all of my feelings and experiences of this momentous milestone in my life. I think this line would work for this as well as my sister's first child(at 40)! She's having a girl and I can see sweet pink and white pages that I can create to tell her little one how welc omed she is! The memory keepers would be fantastic for both projects! Three big projects in store for me, so little time!
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and address. CONGRATS!!!!! Thank you EACH of you for posting so many encouraging and kind comments.
