I just wanted to start by saying how all of you have blessed me with your enthusiastic response to my products. I'm super excited with them and it makes my heart happy that you are as well.
Several of you asked when my shop would open and while these things are never exact, I am shooting for sometime toward the end of March. I haven't yet settled on a platform for the shop. (if you are in the know about such things, please send me an email as I am in the dark and starting from scratch)
I'm a designer and business is not something I know a ton about so I've got lots to learn about taxes and packaging and all that fun stuff. (so like I said, if you have insider information and don't mind sharing, I'm all ears! Hint, hint!)
I can tell you that you are going to be excited for the next installment too. And Moments isn't quite finished either so there will be some tweaks to that also.
For today, I'd like to share another layout. I've been creating like a mad-woman for a few weeks and haven't been able to share so I'm really excited that I get to show you a bit more now.
First, this layout debuted on the Elle's Studio Blog yesterday and is made from the new 'A Love Story' kit in the shop. It is such a fun kit. There is an exclusive stamp set which I assure you, you DON'T want to miss. Not only that but there are some yummy journaling and embellishment tags and some amazing fabric embellishments that are exclusive to the kit as well. I could easily have continued making stuff from this kit. So much fun!
Here tis: 1, 2, 3 Reasons 4 Loving You
The filmstrip is a Silhouette image as are the doilies, and the word 'loving'.
Loved playing with the twine in this kit. To make the heart below, I glued a heart punched from the patterned paper in the kit onto the photo, then I ran a thin line of glue around that and glued the twine down. Easy peesy!
And here is another bit of fun for you. This is my last week as the Challenge Maven on the Studio Calico Challenge forum. For the month of January I've been issuing a challenge to the Layout A Week or LOAW girls. This week's is one I'm super excited about. You can see the challenge thread here. (You really want to because it'll turn you on to another amazing scrapper who's work you must not miss.
So this was my take on the challenge. You'll see a few more bits from the Moments collection in this one.
In the bit just above here, I love the little bow I tied between the thread ends. It's hard to see, but that one detail made me smile big!
So now, why don't you give mixed media a try on your pages. I have to admit that covering up my patterned paper and tape was hard, but I love the result.
