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:
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!
