Little Yellow Bicycle - Elizabeth Park

Spring is in the air and nothing captures that feeling more than this joyful new line from Little Yellow Bicycle called Elizabeth Park. This line reminds me of a leisurely stroll through the park, where you would spot various butterflies, birds, and flowers. Wonderful colors, combined with an endless supply of embellishments, makes this line perfect for scrapbooking your Spring photos.

The above a card created with this line and displayed on the Little Yellow Bicycle's web site. To view the entire line (yes, we have the entire line!!) stop by the store today!

It's Raining, It's Pouring

It is March in New England so the rain is sure to come (hey, at least it's not snow, right?) And we have the perfect paper to scrapbook those rainy day photos. Nikki Sivils brings us a sweet line that highlights all the good things around a good downpour; polka dot rubber boots, colorful umbrellas, big 'ol raindrops, and a turtle all dressed up and ready to splash in puddles! I think I suddenly have a whole new appreciation for rainy days...

Design Team Highlight - Regina DiCicco

I couldn't wait to share this stunning layout done by one of our DT members, Regina. On this page, Regina highlighted not only her beautiful wedding photos but this stunning wedding paper from The Paper Company. This beautiful line comes with a variety of paper all adored with gold or silver foil as well as coordinating embellishments (Regina used the buttons on her page).
In this second layout, Regina used one of my favorite beach lines from Creative Imaginations. This great worn paper reminds me of being dockside while enjoying the water and sunshine. Regina used this great paper, a line that is always in the store due to its popularity with our customers, to highlight a trip to Nantucket.

Stop by the store to see all of the beautiful page created by our design team!

Design Team Highlight - Pam Anthony


Hey...where have I been? I know, prepping for this weekend's Stamping Around event! We're so excited to be able to spend the weekend stamping and with a wonderful store right downstairs where we can pick up any goodies we simply must have for our projects!

Well before the event begins, I need to share a darling double-page layout from one of our designers, Pam Anthony. This darling page was created with a variety of sports-themed papers that can be found at the store. (Truth be told...we have a great selection of sports papers!) Pam accented her pages with acrylic pieces from Tim Holtz, called Fragments, backed with selected areas of the designer paper. This makes a great embellishment on both pages. You can stop by the store and see this beauty in person! (And pick up some sports papers while you're at it!!)
