Introducing OPEN BOOK...
I have been giddy with excitement over this new collection and have been bursting at the seams to share it with all of you!!
OPEN BOOK was inspired by and designed around my love for storytelling. As scrapbookers and memory keepers, that is what we are all about and I wanted to bring you a collection full of elements that will help you tell the story of your life in a beautiful way! As you capture and record your most treasured stories and memories, you will create an OPEN BOOK for your family and future generations to enjoy in the years to come!
This collection definitely stays true to my signature style but we changed some things up as well to make it fresh and new! You will find a more rich and saturated color palette with lots of black and white and the introduction of black and gold (which I am currently obsessed with). It is full of vintage finds, sweet colorful icons and pretty feminine touches as well. We've also added some fabulous new icons and unique new embellishments.
For example, I can't get enough of this new buildable flowers pack. It comes with so many gorgeous leaves and florals! The possibilities are endless.
What I love the most are all of the details >> gold foil accents, lots of embossing, shimmering glitter and pretty hand painted phrases. I hope you will enjoy telling your stories using these new products as much as I do!!
You are going to LOVE the embossed gold foil pieces in the ephemera pack!
And the vellum pack is stealing my heart as well. Mixing and layering things from the two sets together is my favorite!
I am thrilled with how these layered tags turned out.... ruffled and sewn crepe paper.... swoon!
One of the most popular "Maggie" embellishments has definitely been my fabric bows so we decided to bring them back in a new sparkly glitter version!!
You also asked for more craft dies and another embossing folder and I think you are going to LOVE these new sets!! The embossing folder creates the most detailed and beautiful floral pattern. You just have to see it in real life to get the full effect!
Here's a peek at the new rub ons, gold glitter phrase thickers, chipboard, frames and embossed gold foil stickers.
I just started creating with this collection and I am truly LOVING it! I don't know how it is possible but I love each new line more than the last. I am finding the products in this collection so easy to mix and match and am loving layering all of the pretty things together. All of these layouts were created using just a fraction of the products as I am still waiting on some of them to come in. I can't wait to keep going with the full collection but this shows you just how much you can do with these packs of ephemera, flowers, chipboard and vellum!!
You can see one of the gold and vellum specialty papers on this page and the black with gold foil polka dots!!! I die over both of them and you can expect to see me using them a LOT!!!
How fun is this mint green bullseye paper? Such a great build page to use as a background!
You can see a bunch of the patterned papers on this layout. I love all of the contrast that the black & white patterns add to some of the softer ones. And I am obsessed with that green, yellow and pink floral!!
There's LOTS more to see in detail that I haven't shown here >> including all of the patterned paper, gold printed vellum specialty papers, doilies, stickers, ribbon tags, standouts, clips and a banner kit!!
