Valentine's Inspiration

I just love vintage valentines. They are romantic, inspiring and carry such great energy from the past. Each one tells a story and I wish I could hear them all first hand.

Inspired by the colours in recent find at a vintage store, I have started a new collection entitled, Victorian Valentine.

Designed around the theme of Passion, Romance and Devotion, the papers are ornate, richly romantic and sure to provide you a base for a wonderful collection of scrap pages, romantic cards and collage art.

The paper packs are done - still working on the embellishments. I imagine this collection will be quite extensive as I get so lost in the design work on this one.

A French Affair

For those who know me, they know I adore Paris. Just the idea of Paris sends my heart aflutter. It is not surprising that my Muse often presents an idea with Parisian flare. So it is with the new collection, A French Affair.
While in Paris not so long ago, I came across a wonderful shoppe not far from the Eiffel Tower. Tiny and tucked away, it holds one of the exquisite collections of linen I have ever seen.

Each piece tied with a shimmery ivory silk bow, from which hung a black oval tag. The presentation is unforgettable.

Inspired by that small shoppe in the heart of Paris, I have created "A French Affair".

Warm neutrals form the base for this romantic collection of 6 prints and stripes, accompanied by 2 beautiful laser cut papers and a 2 pieces of coordinating card stock - a total of 10 Parisian pretties for your next project.

This paper kit is perfect for Romantic, BFF and Heritage layouts, card making and collage art. The collection is created at 300dpi for superior print and quality.

This embellishment collections contains:
1 floral envelope - separated into front and back pieces so that you can fill it with your own treasures

2 antque frames with ribbon wraps

6 straight silk ribbons: French ombre, Taupe Taffeta, Ivory Silk, Brown Weave, Black silk with French phrase and White silk with French phrase.

Bringing in the New Year!

Change is always a constant in my life. It is also the bearer of unanticipated gifts and usually when the dust clears I find a blessing within.

So it was over the Christmas holiday week. The store where my products were listed suddenly closed without warning. Poof! Just like that. While still stunned by its owner's actions, I was introduced to a new store and new opportunities.

I am very proud to have been selected for the design staff of Purple Paper Flowers. The store opens on Monday and it is very exciting!! Thank you Amanda for this amazing opportunity!!! Please stop on by and check out my little corner of the garden!

And remember, change is movement and movement is necessary for growth. Look for the blessings and don't be too surprised when they are of substantial weight.
