Pink Paislee Color Wash- Anna’s

I have put together both a girly layout and one of my son in this range. The Pink Paislee Color Wash Papers and Pink Paislee Color Wash Access. are very subtle in colour and the perfect entry level range for those wanting to try out the “ombre” trend that is sweeping the scrapbooking products at the moment.

Glittery and Gold–Cheery Lynn

Hi, Susan Longman with you again. Today I have been browsing Pinterest and noticed in the world of papercraft (particularly scrap booking) there is a real trend for GOLD, GLITTER and FEATHERS at the moment. I have seen a load of layout in White and Gold so I thought I might give it a whirl on a card. My husband, not being aware of the trends, quite righty pointed out that the card design was probably more suited to Christmas but I wanted to reflect the trend in a birthday card.

Carta Bella Wildflower–Anna’s

Here are a couple of layouts to today. I used the gorgeous Carta Bella Wildflower Papers and Carta Bella Wildflower Access. to create both a masculine and girly layout. These papers are very versatile with their ombre toning's and wood grain finishes. The elements are kind of “ home on the range” type things with deer and stag heads featuring amongst feathers and globes.
