The time is HERE!
I'm so excited to be able to finally share!!! Here is a sneak peek at the first 16 papers in my Scrapbook with Passion line licensed to Sugar Tree. They will be in Booth #2028 so feel free to stop by and check them out if you get to go to CHA in Vegas next week.
I hope you enjoy working with the papers as much as I enjoyed creating them. My goal was to paint papers that my girlfriends (and myself!) would love to use. Papers that had a hand-painted/artsy look, yet were simple and non-intimidating to use. I love to "build-in" design to the papers so that there are open spaces-perfect for adding photos, while still including vibrant shapes, flowers or patterns. There are 4 lines with 4 coordinating papers in each line. Each line has what I call an "icon" paper with a bold pattern, a "word" paper (simply because as a scrapbooker I love papers with words!), and then two coordinating papers that can be used alone or in conjunction with the word and/or icon pages. If you go to my website and click on "create", you can see each of the papers and layouts in a larger size.
While you are on the website-go to "teach" and check out all the information for the Des Moines JDF Crop for the Cure. This is going to be an amazing fundraiser held in downtown Des Moines all for a good cause-Juvenile Diabetes Foundation. Donna Dewberry of "One Stroke Painting" fame will be teaching classes and demonstrating her amazing painting techniques. Brenda and I will be teaching classes using the new paper line. Brenda is making these adorable clipboards (big and small) for class and I am doing a photo canvas and layout classes. Registration was LIVE yesterday and classes are limited to 30 so sign up soon.
We leave next Sunday for Vegas! I can't wait, but still have a few things to do...
