Welcome to the American Crafts blog hop!
Thank you so much for stopping by!
We as a design team are so excited to share some projects with you today using our favorite brand new products from this past CHA. Be prepared to have your socks knocked off by these talented ladies.
Just in case you have stumbled upon my blog and would like to do the entire hop (for a greater chance of winning some very cool prizes!) please start at the American Crafts blog where the fabulous Alisha Gordon will start things off.
The project that I am going to share with you today features the gorgeous Peachy Keen collection. I love it for its florals and stripes, beautiful color scheme and the fact that it is so very versatile. The colors in the papers were, amazingly enough, just perfect for these pictures of my oldest daughter from a recent trip to the Fort Worth stockyards.
Supplies: Heavens to Betsy paper (35387), Cool Cat paper (35389), You're a Peach paper (35381), Sweet on You paper (35374), No Sweat paper (35378), Easy Peasy paper (35382)- Peachy Keen. Peachy Keen tags (85543)- Bits, Corduroy Brads (85538)- Elements, Golly Gee Phrase and Journaling Stickers (42192)- Remarks, Charming Stickers (78046)- Details, Twist pinwheel flowers(72008)- Delights, Charming Chap layered embellishments (78046)- Details, Mulberry Doll fabric chipboard letter stickers (53170)- Thickers, Honey Fellow Printed chipboard letter stickers (53175)- Thickers.
For this blog hop we were supposed to share our favorite part of the new CHA releases and while I love all of the new products (who can blame me, right?) there is something that you might not have noticed that I really like. The papers are double-sided and now have a cute printed tear strip at the bottom. Yes, that's what I really like-while it's such a simple thing I really do love it and I was able to use a few of them on this layout.
Here are a few detail shots so that you can take a closer look:
Here I used my Fiskars scallop-edge punch on the tear strips to add a little punch to the top corner.
The stickers and other embellishments that come with this collection (corduroy brads, flair, stickers, pinwheel flowers, etc.) are gorgeous- wouldn't you agree?
This picture shows off a couple of the new styles of Thickers that coordinate with the Peachy Keen collection. I used the Mulberry Doll and Honey Fellow Thickers. I thought that the little arrows from the Fellow set accented the title quite nicely. By the way, I used a bit of Glossy Accents on the fabric Thickers.
Now here's something fun for you!
