Collage Press Design Team!!!!

Anyone that reads my blog regularly would know that I am head over heels in love with Collage Press. They are hands down my favorite manufacturer. I think that their design combinations of linear elements like grid and ledger paper and shabby chic flourishes and distressing is pure genious. It makes me happy to just look at their papers! Ever since I saw my first Collage Press papers, I KNEW I wanted to design for them.

Well.........I am HONORED and incredibly EXCITED to say that I am now a part of their ultra-fabulous design team!!!!!!

Here's the announcement:

Wow, what a dream come true for me. I couldn't be more proud!!! In the words of Collage Press, "Life is Sweet!"

So Thankful

Stop by the Scrap and Stamp Saturday blog to participate in this weeks fun challenge - what you are thankful for. Remember to use some stamping on it too! I love these challenges because I get to use some of my older stamps, papers, and embellishments that have been sitting around and collecting dust for quite some time!

First Day of 4K - Sept. Hip Kit

I love how the Sept. Hip Kit included papers that could be used in a school themed layout! I hand sewed at the top using the floss included in the add-on kit. I also put a rub-on onto the ribbon and secured it with a paperclip, all of which are included in the kit!!

I Can Read - Sept. Hip Kit

This layout was made using only the Sept. Hip Kit from Hip 2-b Square. I cut out the letters from the letter paper to create a circle around the layout. I also used some of the Prima packaging as a journal block.

All Tied Up - Sept. Hip Kit

This layout features the Sept. Hip Kit and Add-on Kit from Hip 2-b Square! The add-on kit comes with fun floss in different colors, paint, pearls, rhinestones, and wonderful Prima flowers and stems! The possibilities are endless!

Stephen's Falls - Sept. Hip Kit

I loved all the different colored layouts that I could make with the Sept. Hip Kit from Hip 2-b Square! The green/charcoal/blue is a color combo that I've never used before and I like it!

My Classroom - Sept. Hip Kit!

The September Hip Kit from Hip 2-b Square was full of fun trinkets, embellishments and supurb papers! This layout uses the Hip Kit and the add-on kit.

September Hip Kit Cards

I love using up all my scraps when I'm done doing layouts from a kit. Making cards is the best way!!! These cards are all made using contents of the Sept. Hip Kit!

Coral Beach

This week at Scrap and Stamp Saturday, the challenge is to use a quote and a stamp. My quote was, "Take only memories. Leave nothing but footprints." by Chief Seattle. The DT had the pleasure of working with wonderful BasicGrey products from our sponsor, Studio Calico! I had a great time on this layout!! I used sewing to create journal lines.
