My Mind's Eye Stella & Rose

Introducing another incredible line from My Mind's Eye...these are just two of the four.  All four lines of this gorgeous collection coordinate and inspire.  I simply can't say enough about this line, MME always tops the line before, which is a hard act to follow.  Lost and Found was stunning, but this with the brads, trinkets, trims and layered chipboard, takes my breath.
Mabel


Hazel


I will share Gertie and Hattie with you tomorrow!

It's Your Day Layout and a layout from scraps

Sharing a couple of layouts from this weekend.  Finally had a chance to create.  First up is the It's Your Day line from Nikki Sivil.  So cute and easy to create with..most of it's done for you.  Thanks Kelly for sharing pictures from of baby girl.  Too cute!

Next, a layout created from scraps of My Mind's Eye Alphabet Soup line.  Lori taught a class a couple weeks back and I had tons of these little scraps left. Added the scraps, tone on tone branches from the Cricut and the adorable Glimmer Misted banner from Maya Road.  If you haven't tried Glimmer Mist on chipboard, you really must give it a try.  Fast, easy and so much quicker than painting or papering.  Maya Road makes the most amazing quality chipboard and it's just works beautifully with the mists!


Happy creating!!!

Crate Paper's Restoration

This is a beautiful line of paper from Crate Paper.  They have gorgeous designs, perfectly distressed and perfect for all your paper crafting!  I love the texture of their paper, so cool.  I have adored this line for a couple of months and finally decided to give it a try here at the store.  I loved creating with it and adore how even though if is a bit vintage feeling, it worked well for even a child layout! Again, Leah thanks for sharing your pictures with me.  He's too stinkin' cute!
