Hello there

Happy Monday! Skipping along getting everything ready for CHA. It starts this Sunday in Anaheim. It's a huge convention full of fabulous craft products and ideas... that you can't even buy yet-making it quite torturous.
We miss Collin around here but are having lots of fun with just the girls. He'll be back soon from his own conference. Definitely not as cool as CHA. Although he is stocked up on mouse pads, pens, T-shirts with random logos on them. Being the cute wifey I am ;) there are notes through out his suitcase. That reminds me, I should make sure he finds the one I safety pinned to the backside of his suit pants reading, "Kick some marketing butt." I would hate for him to walk around like that. :)
Here are a couple pages using the Dear Lizzy products. Circles punches are definitely a go-to tool when I scrapbook. If you have my book, "52 more Scrapbooking Challenges" you can add the Martha Stewart butterfly punch to the list because I used it lots.
Yes, I agree a tutorial is needed for the flowers using my fabric paper... after cha. If you came to Spark No. 1 you would be ahead of the game since delightful Kelly taught a fabulous fabric class using vintage fabrics and this technique.
The bicycle, brown swirl, "dreams" and the pendant banner on the first page are patterned and glittered accent thickers. I adore how they turned out.

Happy Monday to you, too! Have a fun week getting all your last minute to-dos wrapped up! Love the thicker accents for your line, but I haven't seen anything in your line that I don't love! Be sure to have lots of good girly time while Collin is away

Gasp! I am 6 miles from Anaheim/ CHA! I did not even realize it was happening. I must see/ meet you! That would be a blast! Do you know if tickets are tough to come by?

Oh, I adore that bicycle and the pic of you riding the bike is just the sweetest! Have a wonderful time at CHA!

Laci J said...

I'm with Marlina above. I wanna know how you came by that cute skirt, did you make it?

Natalie Park said...

I would love to know how you make the flowers! I have seen them made with fabric and I CANNOT figure out how to make them. I have tried and tried and they just don't seem to work out! Is there anyway you could give us a video tutorial or something about how to make them? I would really really really appreciate it! Thanks! :)

Ute L. said...

Oh this is so cute...I love it!!!

scrappinbrat said...

WOW!! Everything looks just fabulous! This entire line is going to be SMOKIN HOT at CHA!!! I love your layouts--your pics are always so beautiful. What type of camera do you use? They're always so crisp & clear--and of course the subjects in all your pics are simply BEAUTIFUL!
Can't wait for you to share the tutorial for the flowers using your gorgeous fabric papers!!! I tried clicking on the link you have here for "Kelly", but it does not work for me.
Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful creations and have a super fun time in CA this weekend!!!

Michele Bailey said...

Cute! I can't wait to buy some of your products! :)

AprilT said...

I love, love, love your products! However, I've got a question...I've got two boys. Rough and tumble pre-teen and just turned teen boys. How on earth could I incoporate these (without hearing..OH MOM!!!)??

Anne Thompson said...

Oh my goodness, I absolutely cannot WAIT to get my little hands on some!! Oh and I looove the MS butterfly punch too : )

Jenn said...

Love your pages! I can't wait for the release and for the flower tutorial.

Mary said...

Oh my gosh I love your line!! Your so creative I can't wait for the flower tutorial either!!! Have fun.

Frenchy chick said...

Beautiful pages...so sweet!

Michelle said...

Love the bicycle! Wish I had more uses for flowers too. All boys here as well!

Rachael said...

I can't wait for this line to come out! I have a totally random-ish question. Did you design your polaroid templates in photoshop or is it a download? If so I really want to make my pictures like that too!! How would you advise printing those for hybrid scrapbooking?

Bemi29 said...

You're line is gorgeous and so much fun! I can't wait to get my hands on it!

Julie said...

I absolutely LOVE those 2 layouts. The crush bottles & that tiny banner w/the first one, & the photo w/your bike & basket w/those pretty dainty girly flowers & that ruffled peice of ribbon, put me over the top! Thx for such AWESOME inspiration time & time again =)
