Websters_pages_fall_warehouse_sale

No doubt when you get this box, you're going to have TONS of creative ideas floating around in your head, but just in case you aren't sure where to start, we wanted to give you some fabulous inspiration from Erin Blegen, who had a ton of fun playing with her warehouse goodies! 

Erin-Tags1_web

Erin created this adorable tag set and we are fully enamored with it. Take a closer look. Here, she really makes the fabric ticket the star:

Tags-1_web

The second tag has so many beautiful layers, and we especially love the butterfly Erin added underneath the flowers. Don't you love how she incorporated Once Upon a Halloween papers into the mix here? So clever!

Tags-2_web

The third tag is sweetly beautiful. We absolutely love the Designer Threads, so seeing this adorable flower with a Designer Thread center just makes us swoon. 

Tags-3_web

What will YOU create with your Warehouse Box goodies?! There's still time, just visit our website to snag your own big box 'o happy!

Inspired by our Warehouse Sale {It's Not Too Late!}

Websters_pages_fall_warehouse_sale

Well, feast your eyes on that pure beauty! We are so in love with this Warehouse Sale and LOVE how many of you are taking advantage of its awesomeness! We hope you'll snag your box before they're all gone!

We thought you might want a little inspiration for after you get your box, so we asked Designer Erin Blegen to whip up a layout using only what's inside. She was happy to oblige:

Erin1_web

Granted, there is still a LOT more in her box, but look at how gorgeous this design is! We are completely smitten. We LOVE the way Erin fussy-cut some of the motifs, layering them to give the perfect amount of dimension. 

Erin2_web

And what a clever way to make your title jump out:

Erin3_web

With so many products to play with, you can layer and cut and snip and glue to your heart's content!

Erin4_web

You can also mix newer products, like our Charms, with older ones, like our Dazzle-Me Gems, for fabulous results! 

Erin5_web

We can't wait to see what goodies come of your warehouse box... head over to our website and grab one for yourself TODAY!

Beautiful Leftovers {And a HUGE Warehouse Sale!}

They say a picture is worth a thousand words, but around here we think this picture is worth exactly ONE word: WOW! 

Yes, we really ARE having a monster Warehouse Sale and it looks a little something like this:

Websters_pages_black_friday_warehouse_saleIt's our way of saying THANK YOU for being the absolute BEST customers around! 

Since today is a day of leftovers, we thought it fitting to ask our designers to create layouts using scraps from other projects. Take a peek at what they've come up with. 

Diana Brodeur:

Emeline Seet:

Inspired Gratitude {Happy Thanksgiving}

Novemberthanksgivingart (2)

It's here, a day to show our thanks...and we're starting by thanking YOU...for being such an important part of our family. Rather than simply telling you how grateful we are, we've decided to show you... and we're doing that by hosting an incredible Warehouse Sale next Monday, November 26th. 

Watch our blog (and your inbox) for details but I can tell you this...STAY TUNED!

In the meantime, we wanted to share a bit of Thanksgiving inspiration...a gratitude tag book from Designer Erin Blegen:

 

Erin-Cover-2_web

Take a closer look at this clever and beautiful way to capture all the things you're thankful for... 

Erin1_webErin_webErin5_webErin6_webErin7_webErin8_web

Count your blessings and then capture them in a little book that would make an excellent gift or keepsake for you or someone you love. 

Wishing you the very best Thanksgiving...from our family to yours...

Parade of Gratitude {Tag Style} Part 2

We are brimming with thankfulness and so excited to be sharing it with you as we move towards Thanksgiving and into Christmas. 

Hopefully you'll be as inspired as we are to create beautiful things... 

Look at this gorgeous work of art from Designer Gerry van Gent: 

Gerry_web

Gerry's tag is so visually interesting, you can hardly stop from getting closer to your screen for a better look. (Which may just be a running theme with this post!) We love that Gerry is celebrating two very special people with her tag...beautiful, right? 

Anabelle O'Malley is also thankful for her family this season:

Anabelle1_web

...and she's chosen a beautiful way to show it. The added texture in her tag makes this one extra special and just so, so pretty...

Anabelle2_web

Emma Trout decided to create a set of layered tags, though you may never know it by looking at the finished product:

Emma2_web
Here, you can see the individual tags and how they fit together to create the gorgeous masterpiece you see above. Pretty clever, if we do say so (and we do.) Emma1_web

Tomoko Takahashi also created a perfectly designed tag celebrating her love of her family:

Tomoko1_web

Our unique trims and Perfect Accents (and of course the way Tomoko put them all together) really make this project something special... We also love the color combination and the way she's pulled the royal purple into this mostly red tag. It just works! 

Diana Brodeur took a more simple approach and also shows how you can use your tags to display your gratitude:

Diana_605

Simply set it up alongside a favorite photo and you've got instant art! 

Or, take the same approach as Designer Jill Cornell, who has outlined several of the things she's grateful for on this one tag:

Jill1_web

In fact, you could create blank versions to include on your Thanksgiving table and have your guests fill in their tags with what they are most thankful for. Save them together for a cherished Thanksgiving keepsake. 

Tell us, will there be handmade elements to your Thanksgiving this year? We'd love to see what you're creating!

Parade of Gratitude {Tag Style}

This week, we are focusing on all the many things we're thankful for...and we're commemorating our gratitude with an assortment of beautiful Thanksgiving tags that are sure to inspire. 

For starters, look at these three beauties by Designer Jaz Lee, who created a tag for each of her three kids:

Jaz2_webJaz3_webJaz4_web

We love the way Jaz cut the images of her kids and included them on these adorable tags. Wouldn't they make great door hangers for their rooms? 

Jaz1_web

Next, be inspired by this gem from Designer Larissa Albernaz:

Larissa1_web

We absolutely love the detail Larissa added to this tag...from the texture of the trim and Perfect Petal on the top to the dimension she included wtih the handcut elements...we are smitten! 

Perhaps you prefer a cleaner, simpler design? Then Jamie Harder's Gratitude tag is the perfect inspiration:

Jamie_web

We love the way the large Flower Charm really pops on Jamie's tag, even on a somewhat neutral background. Perfection! 

Gabrielle Pollacco celebrated her family with this exquisite tag:

Gabi1_web

We lovethe way Gabi used a stamp to include such a sweet sentiment, and of course the details she's added are gorgeous, as usual. 

Speaking of gorgeous, look at this beauty from Designer Emeline Seet:

Emeline1_web

The Perfect Petal doesn't need much embellishment to be absolutely breath-taking, and Emeline added just the right touches. 

This week especially, we are celebrating our blessings...and there are so, so many.

Tell us, what are you most thankful for this year?

Make it Mini {in a snap!}

We are in love with mini albums. Little bursts of creativity that are both functional and beautiful? What could be better? And these would make perfect Christmas gifts for just about anyone on your list!

Today, we get to share a beautiful Best Friends Mini Book courtesy of the fabulous Iris Babao Uy. Just look:

Iris1_web

Iris used this collection to create a stunning "Snap Album" to document her daughter's Halloween this year. Take a look at the gorgeous interior pages:

Iris2_webIris3_webIris4_webIris5_webIris6_web

Iris also mixed pocket pages with regular layouts for some wonderful variety. For this, she cut up the Picture This! patterned paper, which gave her the perfect backgrounds for these adorable photos:

Iris7_web

What a great way to break up the album!

We love the way Iris pulled in some Once Upon a Halloween sentiments to round out the project. 

Iris8_web

So, are you a mini book maker? We'd love to see what you've been creating lately! Be sure to share over at inspireME so we can all inspire each other!

Non-Traidtional Christmas Cards {& a Challenge}

Christmas card week is coming to a close, but we still have two more gorgeous cards to inspire you today. {Hopefully just in time for weekend card-making!}

Maybe you're hoping for something a little less traditional this year...why not pull in a non-traditional Christmas color like Anabelle O'Malley did with this card:

Anabelle1web

Anabelle's addition of the pink makes this one really pop and turns into a modern, gorgeous piece of Christmas perfection. 

Anabelle2web

We absolutely love the way this Perfect Accent jumps right off the center of the card for added texture that's wonderfully touchable! 

Anabelle3web

Designer Emeline Seet also took a non-traditional approach with this beautiful creation:

Emeline1_web

We are smitten with Emelines lush purple and gold take on Christmas. This is the perfect color combo for instant elegance. 

So, how about you? Are you ready to make some cards? Head over to inspireME to find out more about this month's Card Challenge...you could WIN some Webster's Pages of your very own!

Christmas Cards From Layout Scraps {Quick & Easy}

This week, we're chatting all about cards. More specifically, we're chatting about Christmas cards...and today we've got a few treats for you. 

First, we have Stacey Michaud to show you how you can take the scraps from your next layout and put them to good use in a card...First, here's the adorable layout:

Stacey1_web

We LOVE Stacey's Clean and Simple style and love the way she captured the magic of Christmas using our Royal Christmas collection.

Stacey says: "I worked along the diagonal to create this page. I started with the cluster in the top, left hand corner. I love the light colored background, but wanted to add some interest. I cut some of the oval artisan shapes and incorporated them around the page. The circle trim and forest green papers add pops of dark color. 

Stacey2_web

Now, Stacey was left with some scraps on her table, so she gave herself a challenge to create the card using only those scraps. We think she did a pretty good job!

Stacey3_web

The great part is that the card was fairly simple to create. Here are Stacey's easy step-by-step instructions:

Step ONE: Cut a 6 x 9" rectangle from the Sugar Plums paper and add a 4.5 X 2" purple rectangle along the top of the card using the Starry Night paper.

Step TWO: Place a piece of the scalloped lace trim around the card, so the scallop lays about 4" from the top.

Step THREE: Beginning about 3" from the top of the card layer 1/2" strips of leftovers, working upwards and place the Happy card cut from the Greeting Cards sheet of paper to the left of the card, about a 1/2" from the top.

Stacey4_web

Step FOUR: Use the leftover circle trim on the middle strip to add depth and add the cut off strip along the top of the card, cut at 4.5 by 1/4".

Step FIVE: Place a Perfect Accent along the side of the Happy card, then layer a natural material like hemp to tie a bow.  

Step SIX: Add final touches like the cut out star from the Starry Nights paper and the circle from the trim.

Stacey5_web

Gorgeous, right? This card makes your leftover scraps look so good!

Designer Jamie Harder is also here with a fun little trick today...glitter snowflakes. First, look at the quick and easy card she created: 

Jamie1_web

Creating your own is simple if you follow Jamie's four easy steps. 

Step ONE: Print off a snowflake image to use as a template. 
Step TWO: Place wax paper over top of image (Tape wax paper to the page to keep it in place). Spread a small amount of dish soap lightly over wax paper covering image.
Jamie2_web

Step THREE: Using a glue gun, place glue onto the image of the snowflake.
Step FOUR: Allow the glue to dry. When dry, gently peel off the wax paper. Cover lightly with clear glue and sprinkle sparkles over top.
Jamie3_web
When dry it is ready to use as an embellishment on a card, page or to hang from your tree as is!

What a fun idea! So...about those Christmas cards...are you ready to start creating? Don't forget our Botanical Christmas collection is 50% off this week only...and our brand new Royal Christmas collection makes beautiful holiday greeting!

Christmas Card Extravaganza!

Christmas Cards abound today on our blog because we know what it's like to want to make handmade greetings and to run out of time! 

We don't want that to happen to you, so we're bringing you tons of inspiring ideas all week long! First, take a peek at this beautiful card set from Designer Erin Blegen: 

Erin1_web

Erin's cards would make lovely gifts all on their own. An ideal way to send a special greeting to someone you love. Take a look at this elegant gold and purple display:

Erin2_webErin4_web

Why not make something like this to house a gift card or cash gift? We love Erin's gold/pink combo on this layout. What a clever take on Christmas!

Erin4_ewb

Of course, you could go more traditional with red, green & gold, like this beauty here:

Erin-3_web

Notice how Erin incorporated the StoryMarker into her design? We love the elegance and detail that adds! 

Speaking of detail, take a peek at this adorable holiday house from Designer Larissa Albernaz:

Larissa_webLarissa1_web

Who says all greetings have to fit in an envelope? We love the way Larissa created this adorable dimensional Christmas house, perfect for adding to your mantle decor or any kind of holiday display. 

But what if  you're looking for a simple design you can reproduce in a snap? Then you'll love these cards from Designer Nina Ostermann:

Nina9_web

Here, you can see how Nina cut the card backgrounds, then the patterned papers and layered on the photos in duplicate:

Nina2_web

Next, she created simple photo mats, punch stars and added trim: 

Nina7_web
Doing one task at a time makes the cards go much quicker and you'll be done before you know it.

Remember, you don't have to have exactly the same patterns for every single card. Instead, use the whole of your papers for a varied and versatile effect. 

Now...why don't you head over to our website where we've got our brand new Royal Christmas collection AND 50% off of our Botanical Christmas collection? Time to get started on that holiday inspiration!

Welcome Guest Designer {Ashley Cannon Newell}

It's Card Week on our blog and we are all about inspiration! In fact, we even have a sensational Card Maker as a Guest Design Team member this month. Ashley Cannon Newell has been creating this month using some of our favorite Webster's Pages' collections, including Royal Christmas, and we can't wait to show you. 

Ashley

But first, a little about Ashley in her own words...

I'm Ashley and I have a passion for paper crafting, photography, fashion, and trying new recipes in the kitchen. I have always been interested in the arts since I can remember. I started my first scrapbook in high school and that was long before any industry focused products were available. I started blogging in 2008 after discovering the paper crafting online world. Currently, I design for Papertrey Ink and also run a challenge-based eZine. When I'm not in my studio, you can find me at work (yep, gotta day job), photographing a wedding, surfing the Internet, or watching a Lifetime movie. 

 

Look at this beautiful Christmas card Ashley created:

Ashley2_web

Head over to inspireME to see TONS more inspiration from our Guest Designer... 

Of course, Ashley's cards inspired our designers in astounding ways. Take a look at how three of them created Ashley-inspired cards of their own. 

First, Designer Emeline Seet:

Emeline1_web

Emeline's adorable layered creation is more a piece of art than a simple greeting. We are perfectly smitten with the tiny details that make this card really shine. 

Designer Gerry van Gent also tried her hand at card-making, and, as expected, the results are gorgeous:Gerry1_web

Designer Emma Trout has also been hard at work, creating this beautiful Thank You card inspired by Ashley's work:

Thank-you-card--Emma-Trout

We love how all of these designers used Best Friends with incredibly different results. 

Remember, these cards can easily be translated into Christmas cards, simply shop our Christmas Collections, Royal Christmas and Botanical Christmas (which is 50% off this week only)! 

And head over to inspireME to see more from Ashley and several more design team members!

May Your Weekend be Inspired

We are gearing up for one very beautiful weekend, and that means we're sending you into prime creative time with some fabulous inspiration...and we'd love to hear if you're spending any time creating between now and Monday! 

Here is a Classic Webster's card set created by Designer Jaz Lee. How pretty are these?

Jaz_web

Jaz created gift-worthy cards using our Best Friends collection and we're smitten with every single one.  

Jaz2_web

The Classic look doesn't have to be overly difficult. Here, you can see that Jaz has hand-cut a few elements and layered them using foam adhesive. While the end result looks intricate, if you break it down, you can see that it's all about building layer on top of layer.  

Jaz3_web

And the results are sensational.

Designer Kay Rogers has a completely different approach. Clean and Simple all the way. Her digital design is sweetly simple, with plenty of white space and a moment captured.  

Kay_web

We love the elegance of kay's layout and how the focus is right where it needs to be: on the photo and the memory.

Classic girl Gabrielle Pollacco pulled the attention to her photo in a different way: 

Gabi_web

By positioning her embellishments in such a way that your eye can't help but travel to her daughter's gorgeous face.  We love all the texture our Classic girls implement, and this layout is a prime example. 

Don't you want to reach out and touch it? 

Gabi3_web

Clusters of dimensional embellishments with little pops of the unexpected (like the butterfly charm above) are a great way to add visual interest to every layout. 

Gabi2_web

What will you be creating this weekend? We would LOVE to see how you're using Webster's Pages in your unique style...be sure to join inspireME and start uploading your projects today!

Take Your Best Friends {Off the Page}

Best Friends is such a charming collection...whether in your scrapbooks, on your wall or anywhere in between. Today we want to know what kinds of "off-the-page" projects you love to do...

And, of course, we'll share a few inspiration pieces to get the creative juices flowing. 

First, take a look at this adorable altered artwork from Designer Kay Rogers:

Kay_web

These are the kinds of designs that are perfect on display. Nina Ostermann also created an adorable piece of Best Friends artwork (that has nothing to do with best friends at all...We love how versatile this line is!)

Take a peek:

Nina_web

We love that Nina used the same background Kay did, and yet their designs turned out completely different from each other. 

Nina2_web

Tomoko Takahashi also went off-the-page to create this adorable mini book. The kind of mini book that makes you want to go create a mini book! If you have an involuntary burst of creative energy, we won't blame you one bit:

Here, you can see the adorable inside of this book (and the adorable peanut the book is about...)

And here, you can see the simple patterns that make the photo pop. What a great idea to add just a bit of scrapbooking goodies to a pre-made album like this one. It jazzes up the plain book perfectly.

The BEST {Friend} kind of Mix-Up

We are SO thrilled our November Sprinkles Craftbox was a complete SELL OUT! {They're selling out quicker and quicker every month!} Thank you guys for taking advantage of this fabulous deal! Watch out for December's box...it's going to be a good one! :) 

Now, on to more inspiration...We love how creative our designers get when we ask them to mix & match collections and Larissa Albernaz took this challenge with gusto. 

Look at this layout:

Lil-cousinweb

There are so many fun details to look at on this page. We just love the way Larissa layered embellishments and hand-cut motifs. Look at the butterflies...gorgeous!  

Little-cousin-detail-1web

And, of course, our Classic girls know how to incorporate incredible texture on their layouts. There is so much on this page to reach out and touch! 

Little-cousin-detail-4web

The tutu trim makes a lovely little pop of something unexpected that we've come to love from Larissa's layouts. Look how pretty this is:  

Little-cousin-detail-2web

We also have a wonderful selection of Shared Embellishments that work so nicely with all of our lines, including Best Friends. Look at this gorgeous altered art journal from Designer Gerry van Gent: 

Art-Journal_Cover_gerryweb

The butterfly push pins and the Designer Threads make such a perfect addition to this journal and to the Best Friends collection. Have you been mixing and matching lately?  

ArtJournal_close-1_Gerryweb

We did launch a Mix & Match Challenge and we had some gorgeous entries this time... we're excited to show you the beautiful winning layout:

Inspired by {the November Sprinkles Craftbox}

Sprinkles is off and running...and yes, they're flying out of the warehouse. We still have a limited number left, so don't let this deal pass you by! You can order right HERE on the Webster's Pages website.

Did you know we also include FREE downloadable project instructions for projects created almost exclusively with what's inside your Sprinkles box?

Today, we're featuring Project #2, a Mini Brag Book created by Courtney Walsh:

Craftbox_project_template_650_nov_2

Because our Western Romance collection is 50% off with the purchase of the Sprinkles Craftbox, Courtney used a few of her favorite patterns from that line to create this brag book:

Brag-book1_web

This is a great little project you can do for yourself or a grandparent...and it would make a perfect Christmas gift! Brag-book-close_web

The book was fairly simple to construct, using various sizes of Western Romance papers and a few plain sheets of cream colored cardstock. Courtney hand-stitched down the center of the book to hold all the pages in place. 

Brag-book-center-webBrag-book-stitching_web

Each page features a different journaling card from the Sprinkles box as the key background or photo mat for the images she included. And, of course, our Storyteller Alphas made a great little addition as well:

Brag-book-Emery_wen

The book came together perfectly with simple, elegant details thanks to the patterns included in this collection (and in this Sprinkles box!) 

Brag-book-Kendall-Web

The exclusive Best Friends Unity Stamp also made a lovely little addition to this brag book. Here, Courtney used the stamp to mat one of the Park Drive stickers for a little added interest...

Craftbox_project_template_650_nov_1

Love_Letters_1web
Jill says, "I was inspired by the Western Romance journaling cards to create love letters for my husband to let him know how much I appreciate him. I had some really old file folders in my stash and thought that would be a unique setting to house the journaling cards. You could easily die-cut some or use vintage folders in a variety of sizes."
Love_Letters_3web
The Western Romance Journaling Cards make such an adorable addition to a little mini book like this... they're easy to alter and are so wonderful to layer throughout a project like this one.
 
Love_Letters_4web
We love the way Jill used what she had on hand and turned it in to something meaningful and special... and the little details pull the whole project together perfectly.
 
Love_Letters_5web
When was the last time you showed someone how much you love them? Why not use your crafty talent to do that this week? We'll get you started with Sprinkles...the perfect inspirational product to get your creative juices going!
Love_Letters_6web
For this project, Jill used: 
  • November Sprinkles Craft Box
  • twine, kraft tags, vellum, heart punches, file folder (either die-cut some or use vintage!)
  • ink, embossing powder
  • "Park Drive" patterned paper scraps
And that's it!
