Taste of Summer Layouts

When you open the Close To My Heart Taste of Summer paper pack your mouth will water.  That's how gorgeous these papers are!  You can only get them during May.  Look at those gorgeous colors.

 Here are the layouts I made with mine, and I still had some paper left over.

 The stamp set that goes with these papers is just perfect.  And you'll use it again and again, for layouts and for cards!

If you want these for your very own, the Taste of Summer paper pack is item CC1038 and is only $8.95 for 12 beautiful double-sided papers.  Don't forget the great stamp set, item CC1039 for only $17.95.

The coordinating inks I used are Canary (Z2643), Thistle (Z2640), Sunset (Z2191), Topiary (Z2155)  and Chocolate (Z2111).

Couldn't make fun layouts without using some glitter tape, purple (Z1919) and black (Z1809) in this case.  Everybody loves a little bling!

And if you don't want to come up with your own layouts, I'm having a workshop making ALL 6 of these layouts!  Contact me if you want more info.

Happy Summer!

Jackson Layouts Kit

All the springy, Eastery, and girly workshops have been fun, but I have been ready for something a little more outdoorsy and masculine and it's finally ready!  Don't you just love the colors?  This one is fun to put together and will be a beautiful addition to your album.  

My customers are making these 3 layouts on May 7th.  If you can't come to a workshop but would love to make these pages, don't despair!  You can get the precut, pre-stamped kit and directions.  If you need it mailed to you, please add $5 for postage.  

These are made with our  Jackson papers, which are in our brand new mini catalog.  Want to see everything in the mini?  Then click here for the whole Seasonal Expressions 2 catalog on line. 

Make all 3 of these gorgeous layouts for only $36.  Tons of detail and personality in these layouts.  Everything will be cut and ready for you to put together--what could be easier?  We usually finish in about 2 1/2 - 3 hours. You will have some leftover embellishments to take home for other projects.

AND if you'd like the great stamp set (a $17.95 value) that coordinates for your very own, just add $7 for a total of $43.
If you'd like a kit of your very own, contact me today!

Our Newest Min-Catalog is Live

Our latest mini-catalog is here! 

Here's a quick look at just 6 of the newest products now available.  Want to see more?   You can check it out by clicking here.


1. Workshops on the Go® Blossom Cardmaking Kit

Grab your swimsuits, everyone! It’s time to take a dive into a pool of colors. Love this kit’s combination of the vibrant Blossom papers and the summery stamp set, which is available exclusively through this kit. Throw in coral reef sequins and Glacier extra thick twine, and you’ve got a recipe for a summer cooler we’ll happily sip all afternoon.

2. My Acrylix® Wavy Blooms

The flowers in this stamp set practically bloom off the page! They’re breezy and beautiful and will effortlessly take on any color you choose. We love using ShinHan™ Touch Twin™ markers to create luminous spectrums that radiate from the page, but feel free to color them any which way you please because, honey, you’re the only florist in this flower shop.

3. My Crush™ For Her and For Him Books

This crush just isn’t going away. If anything, it’s getting stronger, especially with new additions like the For Her and For Him books. Everything about these books is on point and, let’s face it, we’re borderline obsessed with them.

4. Carnival and Boardwalk Washi Tape Packs

First there were the strawberries on the cover and now this? Summer can’t come fast enough with all of these new products pouring sunshine into our hearts! This is probably the most versatile washi tape that’s ever come through our doors—you can use it in strips or as individual labels. Can’t wait to see it popping up on all your projects!

5. My Creations™ Mini Mix Album

This little album is small enough to be adorable, but big enough to hold lots of bits and pieces, including all those square photos from your Instagram account. And the variety of vellum, kraft, and white cardstock pages keeps things a little mixed up in the best kind of way.

 6. Blossom and Jackson Assortments

It’s no secret that we love working with papers, stickers, twine, tape, and other things that bend to our creative wills, but every once in a while a crafter likes to use something with a bit more backbone, which is precisely why you'll be smitten with these metal-rimmed, enamel-filled pieces! Each one brings a jolt of personality all its own. They are just the right kind of adhesive-backed novelty we love to stick on our projects.

So there you have it...just a smattering of the cool new products you can get your hands on right now!
