July Design Team Projects

Guess what?! We have a new design team! I'm pleased to announce the addition of four new design team members; Anne Hall, Laurie Coffey, Carolee Eldridge, and Tara Landry. We'll be sharing their work with you throughout the month!

Today, I'd like to share Anne Hall's July projects...

Anne's first page features a scalloped circle page from Kaiser Craft Nan's Favorites paper line. I love the color combo on this page, the red is such a great pop against the pale green/white background colors. The sweet ruffled ribbon is also available in the store and it not only contains lots of ruffles but also has a pale green thread running through the middle...a perfect match to the designer paper! Another fun tidbit on this page...Anne cut words out of magazines to use as journaling - how fun! Anne used the Cheerful Cherry designer paper, from American Crafts, on her second page. This darling paper features glittery cherries and a heavy paper weight, which is pefect to use as the main background paper for scrapbook pages. I love how Anne turned two buttons and a piece of leaf ribbon to create a darling cherry embellishment for the top of her page. Sweet!

Stop by the store today to pick up the papers used on these adorable pages and to see Anne's artwork in person!
