Mona Pendleton | Tuesday, August 30, 2011 @ 6:12 PM | ,

Hi there! Hope you are all having a great week thus far! For those of you who have been visiting me for awhile you may recall that I shared some pretty exciting news waaaaay back in December 2010 (click HERE for ORIGINAL post). In case you forgot ;), I was offered an AMAZING opportunity to Guest Design for Pink Paislee in 2011! YAHOOOOO!!!! A dream come true! Well, I recently received a box overflowing with FABULOUS Pink Paislee products ~ a crafty girl's dream come true! "My time" is rapidly approaching and before we know it, it will be here so in the meantime I thought I better pull out some of those AWESOME products and work on polishing my papercrafting skills! Have you seen the Pink Paislee DT's mad skills??? sigh...BIG shoes to stand next to!
I'm quite sure you didn't come here to hear my ramble on! I have a few projects to share using many pretty products from the Pink Paislee Nantucket Collection. First up is a LO featuring Meri posing so proudly with her surfboard:
The Nantucket Collection is FULL of MANY fun and pretty products which include but is not limited to beautiful patterned paper, wood chips, stamps, ephemera, ribbon trims, etc... To create my LO, I combined various patterned paper from the 12" x 12" paper pack with a trading card, a clear stamp and several pieces of ephemera. Up close, you can see the beautiful detailed embossed images on the trading card and for a bit of interest, I randomly stitched along some of the stems on the fauna piece from the ephemera:
 I made 3 fan fold embellishments using a variety of patterned paper:
For color inspiration, I played along with Pink Paislee's August Hot hues Color Challenge. Be sure to visit both the Pink Paislee blog and the Live Pink gallery for some awesome inspiration!
For sketch inspiration, I referred to the PageMaps sketch shown on the Pink Paislee blog:
and for those of you who are not the scrappy type, I made a card to share as well :) I made this card for my sweet sister Tina. We ride our bicycles together nearly every weekend so when I saw this trading card, I immediately knew it was meant for her :) In fact, we are going on a girls ONLY 4 day weekend together in San Diego! Yep, we are packing up my 4 legged furry friends, their stroller, our bikes and we are going to spend Labor Day weekend hiking and biking around San Diego and Coronado Island. I'm really looking forward to our little getaway :) Do you have any fun filled weekend plans?
Again, a combination of pretty papers, a stamped image and an amazingly detailed trading card. FUN! FUN!
For sketch inspiration, I played along with this week's Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge. For some awesome inspiration, be sure to check out the site!
Thanks so much for visiting ~ hope you have fun whatever you do! Be Sweet!
