Samantha Walker's Kokeshi Collection

SW_Kokeshi_Sneak_Peak1

Design team member Jen Davis had so much fun creating the layout below using this new collection.  The vibrant colors and intricate patterns really allowed for showcasing photos of her daughter beautifully.  This is such a fun collection and the embellishment stickers really add to the playfulness of this collection, they would also be perfect for creating unique and special cards and tags.

IOD's New Provencial Collection

Lori Gentile here to share IOD's new Provencial Collection. This collection is so breathtakingly lovely. The soft colors are perfect for all those Spring events; Easter, Weddings, Mother's Day, etc.

We take family photos every year and we always have a great time doing them. We usually have a lot of outtakes, such as the one on this layout, and those are always my favorites. They really show how we interact as a family. I like photos where we all have the perfect smiles, but they will never be as emotionally perfect as the outtakes.

Samantha Walker - Heidi

Artist Samantha Walker has created three new collections for CHA Winter.  We recently shared her first collection Blossom and today we are excited to share her second release, Heidi! Look for Blossom and Heidi in stores March 2011!

SW_Heidi_Sneak_Peak1
The first thing I noticed when I opened my box and pulled out these beautiful papers was the versatile color pallet. I knew that I could easily use the red, orange, and yellow combination for any project about girls, or the blue, green, and yellow to highlight a project for boys!! ~DT member, Tanisha Long

New Christine Adolph Sakura Collection

Introducing New Sakura Collection! Look for this beautiful new collection in stores this March! 

I have always been inspired by textiles, particularly Japanese Kimono's. When I was an art student I spent a lot of time in the textile section of our local art museum sketching kimono patterns. The combination of different scales of patterns and textures flowing together, all hand painted, printed and woven to perfection. I was mesmerized by them. Sakura is the Japanese word for Cherry Blossom and I love the traditional cherry blossom motif and peony patterns that are abundant in Japanese decorative art. I spent a lot of time in the development stage of this collections and worked hard to make a beautiful color palette. It's exciting to see it come to fruition. I can't wait to see how it is used for cards and scrapbook layouts. I hope you enjoy working with it as much as I enjoyed designing it. ~Christine Adolph

Art Warehouse's New Baseball Collection

Lori Gentile here to share a really fantastic sneak of a new Art Warehouse Collection.

Art Warehouse has captured the spirit of America's greatest game with the new Baseball Collection. This collection includes everything you need to capture those ballpark moments. Whether your child is a first time T-baller or an experienced champ, you will find everything you need to scrapbook those special moments.

This past year was my son's first time playing T-ball. He loved every second of it and so did we. It was a wonderful experience and we are looking forward to sharing more of them for years to come.

  Lorigentile_baseball1

I particularly love the die cuts in the collection. As seen above, I was able to embellish using them, as well as create my title. Lastly, the fact that the collection is done in black and white is rather brilliant. Every color uniform will match with this collection. You might even consider matching your teams colors with our new gingham cardstock to create the perfect baseball layout! 

Be sure to check back tomorrow for another sneak peek!

New Christine Adolph Marrakesh Collection!

CA_Marrakesh_
Christine Adolph's new collection, Marrakesh blends warm, rich colors along with beautiful patterns that we have come to love from Christine's collectiond.  Look for Marrakesh in store this April!

 

I am a huge proponent of scrappers including themselves in their own scrapbooks. The rich colors and gorgeous patterns in this collection had my name written all over it.  I just had to create a layout about me!  I punched scalloped strips from different purple papers and layered them for a textured look that mimics my dress.

Newfavoritedress

I repeated the ruffled look on this birthday card.  I think it lends a very mature look to the card, just perfect for adults.

IOD's New Wild Spirit Collection

My Initial inspiration for Wild Spirit, was simply that I wanted to represent the horse theme, with an IOD twist. A little more wild, a little more funky, a little more feminine than what you usually see in this category. As I got into the set, I really derived inspiration from my daughter, Madelyn. She is very much rough and tumble, and yet has a very feminine side. She has self control, yet she has a streak of wildness about her. She is beautiful, inside and out. Wild Spirit is for the beautiful creation that is every girl and boy, and the horses they love. ~Josie from Iron Orchid Designs

IOD_Wild_Spirit

Lori Gentile shared her inspiration on creating this beautiful layout using some photos of her son!

IOD has quickly become a Creative Imaginations favorite for me and this Winter release will be no exception. Wild Spirit is one of four brand new collections coming from IOD.

Wild Spirit is perfect for all the cowboys and cowgirls in your life. The rich, earthy colors, gorgeous butterflies and distinct country elements make for pages that stand out and get noticed. I love that I was able to capture the memory of my oldest playing cowboy for his scrapbook.

Samantha Walker's New Bloom Collection!

I am thrilled to announce my soon to be released line: "Blossom" for Creative Imaginations. This line will debut at Winter CHA in Los Angeles and is the little sister to my extensive Enchanted Garden Fabric collection for Riley Blake Designs. The two lines will coordinate seamlessly together, so... if you want, you can hunt down the fabric to use on your paper projects for a fun mix and match effect. Surprise, there are already some coordinating digital dies in my portfolio in the Silhouette download store to use with this line in your projects...AND matching rubber stamps through Unity Stamp company.  But wait...there's more...(Oh no, not the set Ginzu steak knives) but rather, there are 4 coordinating wall tins that go on sale to retailers this weekend at the Gift Market in Atlanta sold through VIP international, look for them at a home decor boutique near you. (Okay, only the over 30 somethings might understand the Ginzu knife reference.)
More about the collection:
In the Blossom scrapbook collection, you will be treated to coordinating double sided card-stock, stickers, epoxies, and die cuts. You can see examples of how fabric can be used on paper projects by my Creative Team members in our blog hop post below. 
Inspirations behind it all:
The flower designs were inspired by antique lace doilies, and my favorite childhood wallpaper in the bedroom where my sister and I shared a bunk bed. The wall paper was a typical 70's flower power pattern with big orange and pink flowers, and blue birds. The colors of the 70's are so cheerful, bold and carefree. My Mom was so hip to put that wallpaper up in my room. Forgive me Mom for ripping a huge hole in the wallpaper when I was a little girl. There was a little "lift" in the wallpaper at the seam, and it was just so tempting as a girl to "help it along." I really did love the wallpaper! Anyway...enough with all that background info. I hope that I was able to replicate a unique modern spin on an antique-retro feeling. Let me know if this line sparks any feelings in you...I want to hear what you think!
Inspiring projects:
You won't want to miss what the Creative Imaginations Design team has done with my paper line.   Design Team member Jen Davis really captured the beautiful papers using some photos of her daughter Zoey! 
Blossom

The design team has been working so hard to create many beautiful things for this upcoming CHA, and I know that they would appreciate your comments and feedback!

Harry Potter ... Not Just for the kids!

I'm finding out quickly that the love of Harry Potter isn't just for young kids. My daughter in law is a big fan. On our long, 22 hr. road trip vacation, I bought Katelyn the book in the series that she hadn't read yet. And one of her 'must have' Christmas gifts this year was the entire set in hardcover. I created this page of Katelyn using the beautiful rich colored Harry Potter CI product. The picture is her on our long road trip right after she opened the book I got her.

Carrie CI layout #4 for Cheryl 

Just this week I watched my first Harry Potter movie. I've not read the books, but after seeing the first movie, I'm hooked. I have a plan in motion to get the set in hardcover and see all the movies. Oh yeah, Harry Potter ... lovin' it at my age!!! For sure!!

Supplies Used:

  • Harry Potter Alphabet Sticker 27601
  • Harry Potter Banner DS Paper 27236
  • Harry Potter ICON Stickers 27242
  • Decorative Border Punch
  • DMC floss for handstitching; black cardstock
  • sand paper to distress letter stickers.
