It's that time again where I get to share a little about the creations I made for Papertrey Ink! I L O V E the stamps that they create and am grateful for the opportunity I get to stamp with them and simply enjoy the pleasure! It's like French fries without the guilt!
My first thought was Home Decor when I saw Snowflake serenade. I love large sentiment for home decor because they show up so much better and can be a real part of the feel of the project. Now... these mirrors are about $2 at Ikea...already painted Dark Brown so I literally just stamped with white paint, glittered and let dry. I know it may sound too simple, but I like simple! I will say this though...photographing this mirror took longer than making it! Holy Cow! Mirrors are SO hard to capture correctly. it hit me that showing something pretty in the refection might be nice and even better if light were involved.
I loved thinking of Christmas music while creating this Party invite... Happy, Happy thoughts!
I'm always trying to think of Man cards... seems like they are desperately needed in my house since I would rather create flowery stuff. I thought how easy it was to create a Man Card with this fantastic cake.
Think Chocolate frosting! Yummy! I love this paper by WeR, Diner, that has a nostalgic retro feel to it. I played off the pattern and incorporated the cake into an existing circle in the paper. I also played off the diagonal patterns. Notice how they both point toward each other then down... leading your eye right to the sentiment! I love when a good plan comes together!
Make sure you check out the other amazing designs that the other Mega Talented Papertrey designers came up with here!
Now...for some exciting news! Remember in May when I wrote this post about my visit to the NY stationary Show? You will read there how I met Brandin O'Neill at the Webster's Pages booth and spent some time chatting with here and had fallen in love with their paper. I continued to visit with Brandin and was elated to find out that Marvy was right across the way from them at CHA, so there was a whole lot of chattin' going on between rushes. Since then, I have been drooling over and using their papers and love the ease of use I have with them. Now... I tend to consider myself a recovering Pattern-paper-a-phobe (someone who fears working with pattern paper, LOL!), having been on the right track with my initial dose of therapy with WeR...but I honestly love creating with Webster's Pages paper ... it feels natural and apparently Brandin thought so too. This weekend I was offered the opportunity to Work with Webster's Pages as their Lead Layout Designer! I will join Brandin,Terri Conrad and Amy Westerman.... A crew of ultra talented designers all of which I have had the pleasure of meeting in person! COOL HUH! Head over to Webster's Pages to get to know these fantastic ladies and check out Webster's Amazing products! I couldn't feel more honored to be given this opportunity, Thanks Brandin!
