Yes, it's TIME... here is SWEET AFTERNOON!!!
This line is so pretty. Yes, it is PASTEL. I knew that the prediction for Spring 2012 was a PASTEL trend. So this was right up my alley. There are so many beautiful colors in this collection- blue, creams, tans, white, pink, tan and yellow. It makes my heart swoon!!!!!
I got the papers this past week and I was feeling so creative. Here are a few projects that I created-
I made these accordion cards with the collection- papers, diecut sheets and stickers.
Yes, the FABRICATIONS fabric flowers are beautiful with this new collection!
The papers are all heavy weight and textured and make beautiful sturdy cards, books and pages.
I used my TC X Sticker Maker (XYRON) to make all my die-cut elemnts into stickers. SUPER love this!
This is a accordion card that I used all the die-cuts to decorate and it will be a nice card to give someone! I am in LOVE with the yellow in the line. If you know me personally- I am not a big fan of yellow in general. However, I found the perfect yellow and I am really loving it. It has inspired me!!!!
Now, the color that is POPPING for me is the BLUE! Yes, I know I am a major pink girl but the blue in this line is so "pretty."
I made this mini book- sized 5x7 with a recycled box. Oh, yes- I will be showing it on a segment on My Craft Channel in the next couple of weeks. Notice- the white flower paper too! I left the flowers neutral (which is lovely) but you then can ink, color, etc. if you want more constrast. These elements on the cover are the die-cut pieces. Yes, there are TWO that go with this collection. They retail for .99 cents each. I love this!!!! You can create a book at a bargain. I try hard to offer affordability in my prices so you can create and it's not so hard on the budget.
Here is a peek inside the book- I made lots of envelope pages. All the colors go well together to create a beautiful mini-book!
I hope you will love the NEW collection as much as I do. I LOVE what I am blessed to do. It is my greatest hope that my lines inspire you to live a creative life. That you feel INSPIRED to create and tell your story, decorate your home, create cards, etc. I think being creative makes me a happier person. It's so fulfilling to create something that we love. I hope you will share my blog and help me share my newest lines- thank you local scrapbook stores (online stores) for carrying my lines for me...if they don't please ask them too. That is how they know you like my products. Let the retailers know!!!! I would not be HERE today doing this if it was not for EACH of you that support my products. I am truly grateful. So I wanted to give back.
We have a very special guest artist that we asked to design with my newest release- I KNEW this line was HER!!!! Keisha Campbell has such a beautiful style and I was thrilled that she was willing to design with my new line.
Keisha thank you so much for sharing your AMAZING talent and being my SPECIAL guest designer! If you do not follow her work/blog please check her out- http://abiteast.typepad.com. Make sure you follow her blog and I know you will find so much inspiration!
I also am debuting a new MEMORY KEEPER white 3 ring binder album- this is a BEAUTIFUL project that Cheri Piles created this past weekend-
I wanted to sell a binder album that was non-themed and would allow for you to document your memories without having to bind the pages- simply punch the holes with a hole punch!
I love how Cheri used the SWEET AFTERNOON stamps and diecut elements.
This is a view of the INSIDE of her book- I love how pretty her pages are!
Cheri loves to make photo corners and she used the TC X Sticker Maker by Xyron to help in her obsession. ha!
