CHA Summer: Pink Paislee

Today I'm sharing some photos from the  PINK PAISLEE  booth at the CHA Summer show in Las Vegas this past week. I had the opportunity to work the booth, help customers with orders and meet a lot of great people!  It was an honor to represent such  fabulous companies as Pink Paislee and Heidi Swapp.
 I missed getting a picture of Santa, but he sat on the bench and took pictures with the fans of Pink Paislee!  The photos were then used in a cute make-and-take.
 Before the show opened we were given an overview of all of the wonderful new product!
 On the opposite side is where all of the new Heidi Swapp products were displayed. And there is Heidi working diligently in preparation for her product demo!
 I love Snow Village!...above are two of my cards (to the left), as well as the  lovely advent frame by Betsy Veldman and mini album by Leslie Ashe
 Pretty cone trees and more sweet cards by Betsy Veldman and Danielle Flanders
 Color Wash and Hey Kid were so popular at the show!  Here are a few card…

Monthly Life Album

In keeping with the spirit of project life, I've created a  "monthly life" scrapbook album/journal using Bella Blvd's new DAILY CHEVIES COLLECTION
This sheet of Daily Chevies double-sided paper was my inspiration:  You can preview the entire collection on the blog --here--
With all of the ‘collage’ making software available today, I thought this album would be
 a fun way to showcase a small collage (or single) photo that reflects the highlights of each month.
I pulled various seasonal components from new and previous Bella Blvd collections.
The “Daily Chevies” cut-out cards featuring each month of the year were the inspiration for
creating this type of album. These cards are also perfect for your 3X4 page protector sheets too!

 If you are a collector of Bella Blvd goodies then this is a great opportunity to mix & match
from previous collections, as well as new...that's one of the beauties of Bella Blvd!

Daily Chevies: Chevy Pickle Juice, Chevy Carrot, Chevy Gu…

Vintage Summer Layout

Hello!  I'm just a few hours home from the CHA Summer Show and am working on just a couple of hours of sleep, but I had to share my latest layout that I created with Little Yellow Bicycle's "Vintage Summer" Collection. There are many more projects using this collection up on the blog too!
This layout was inspired by the quilted patterned paper in the collection.  I even used the same stitching design (found on the paper) around the edge of the mat.
  I layered the various blooms with foam dots and then topped two of them with pieces from the Fabric Favorites. With all of the vertical elements going on, I decided to add the cute chipboard  scallop border to the bottom of each photo; I just trimmed them as needed and then added a  wooden button for even more visual interest and texture.

I'll be back tomorrow with some photos from CHA!
