October Sprinkles Craftbox On Sale Now {72-Hours Only}

Today is a very special day, not only is this the first day of October, but it's also the day our October Sprinkles Craftbox officially goes on sale! 

Here's a little peek at all that's packed in this box: 

Oct_intro
For only $10 and free domestic shipping, this is like a sweet little present you can give yourself (without any guilt at all!) 

Take a look at the way Designer Anabelle O'Malley jazzed up this one-of-a-kind Webster's Pages' notebook using just what was in this month's Craftbox:

Nb1

When your box arrives, you can create one of your very own following these simple steps:

Step One: Cut a 3.75 inch strip of ruler and alphabet fabric ribbons. Adhere the alphabet one slightly below the ruler and stitch together with a zig zag stitch.

Nb1

Step Two: Adhere the stitched fabric ribbon strip to the bottom of the notebook cover.

Nb2Step Three: Add adhesive to the back of the ‘Way to Go’ Silhouette. Glue dots that have been stretched out to fit the perimeter, hot glue or another strong glue would work.

Step Four: Fan fold a 6 inch piece of fabric ribbon, adhering it to the back of the Silhouette as you go along. Trim excess.

Nb3

Step Five: Adhere this to the top left side of the hot air balloon image on the cover of the notebook.

Nb4Step Six: About 1/3 of the way through the notebook, adhere the Go ticket to create a tab. To do this, fold it in half and adhere it to the front and back of the page. Cut a 6” strip of fabric ribbon and adhere to the edge of the page, covering the front part of the ticket. Stitch a zig zag border. This will provide you with a section divider.

Nb5

Step Seven: Create another tab, about 2/3 of the way through the notebook, using the Let’s Play fabric ticket. Repeat step six. 

Nb6

Step Eight: Slide a pencil into the spiral and keep the notebook in your purse to jot notes down anytime you need it.

Nb7

Not bad for a sweet and simple book you can use any way you please. 

So tell us, will Sprinkles be arriving on your doorstep? The sale is 72-hours or while supplies last. Click HERE to order your box today!

How Do I...{Fussy Cut my Webster's Pages?} with Emeline Seet

Emeline

We sometimes hear that it's difficult to cut into a sheet of pretty patterned paper. After all, you don't want to ruin anything...

But we also know that paper isn't doing you any good if you hoard it! Time to break out those pointy scissors and try your hand at fussy cutting. 

If you don't know where to start, have no fear!

We have the fabulous Emeline Seet on hand to give us a step-by-step in how she incorporates our motifs into her work. 

And her work is truly stunning, isn't it? 

Emeline says, "Fussy cuts can be therapeutic but beware, it might get you fingers cramps too!" 

 Read on for Emeline's wonderful tips on incorporating fussy cutting into your next papercrafting project!

Wonderfall-Layout.jpg_web

 

Did you know that the term "fussy cut" is also used in quilting? It simply means to target and cut out a specific motif on a pattern paper. 
Intricate cutting may not be everyone's cup of tea but who knows?! Maybe you'll be inspired to cut a motif on a pattern paper in future.

 

I'll share some of my routines I normally albeit by each time I attempt to do some detail work with the scissors.

 

Step 1: Use precision scissors. Those with pointed edge works best.
Wonderfall-1.jpg_web

Step 2: Select your motif. Cut it out from the main pattern paper. 
A smaller surface is easier to cut around.
Wonderfall-2.jpg_web

Step 3: Maneuver your scissors. 

If you are a right-hander, hold the scissors with your right hand, motif on your left hand. Turn the motif as you cut and pivot your right hand. (ie: Your left handing which is holding the motif should be moving around the scissors. Not the scissors cutting/moving around the motif). 

It might seem very intimidating initially, but follow these simple steps and we'll work a way to cut this fun piece out! 
I'll use the example of the carousel. Most of the time, I do not use my pen knife to cut out every nook and cranny. I prefer to use my scissors. Cut out the flag and cut around the flag (you may wish to make use of a tweezer to help to have a better grip if the motif is really small and you are determined to cut it).
Wonderfall-3.jpg_web
Cut through the top of the carousel and slowly cut out rectangular grids from the carousel. It is easier to cut straight cuts than curves. Embrace imperfection.
Wonderfall-4.jpg_web
Step 4: Use pop up foam adhesives.

To create dimension, I adhere a primary motif (using foam dots) and leverage on it to build my cluster of embellishments. I particularly like to have a couple of motifs stand out. Reason being, I can tuck and overlap other cut out patterns. 
Wonderfall-5.jpg_web
Step 5: Cheat. 
Nobody is going to judge if you cut the motif "wrong". Even if you do, no sweat. Cover it up with a sticker gem or simply tuck under a focal motif mentioned in step 4.
Wonderfall-6.jpg_web
So, here are some steps I routinely take when I am inspired to do some intricate cutting.
One more tip, try to use a solid colored background as your base. Let the intricacy of your cut-outs stand in contrast against the plain background. I promise it'll pop! 
Have you tried fussy cutting lately? We hope you'll share your creations in the gallery over at inspireME... and this week there will be some very special perks for inspireME members only, so if you haven't signed up, today is your day! Come join our community!

Wonderfall Inspiration {Mini Tag Book}

We're so excited we were able to offer "Wonderfall" as part of our "In Case You Missed it Monday"... if you were one of the lucky ones to snag the line for 20% off (or if you have some hiding in your stash), you might want some inspiring ideas on how to put it to good use. 

We're so happy to oblige. 

Check out this adorable tag book from Designer Anabelle O'Malley:

Wfthankful1.jpg_web

The Wonderfall line has such rich, vibrant colors, perfect for autumn, and the way Anabelle put this little book together is so inspiring. 

Wfthankful2.jpg_web

Anabelle says, "Wonderfall is a wonderful and versatile Fall collection. I decided to create some tags using it. At first I thought I'd use them as gift tags, but then decided that I'd add a couple of photos to make it into a 'Thankful' booklet. I couldn't be more thankful for my loving hubby and my sweet boy. I plan on displaying my booklet alongside some of my Fall decorations as a reminder of how lucky I am."

Wfthankful4.jpg_web

Wfthankful3.jpg_web

Each page is wonderfully unique, making this sweet little book of tags a great addition to autumn decor, a sweet gift or just a simple reminder to focus on the things that make you happy. 

Even if you didn't catch our sale (we're so sorry!) you can still shop the Wonderfall collection on our website! Don't miss it!

A {Step-by-Step} Fusion of Winter Fairy Tales & Once Upon a Halloween

Erin


This week, we're mixing and matching...a fusion of old + new, and today we're mixing up Winter Fairy Tales and Once Upon a Halloween. 

It may sound impossible, but Designer Erin Blegen is here to give you the step-by-step proof that it's not! 
Take it away, Erin! 

For this project I decided to combine papers from "Winter Fairy Tales" and "Once Upon A Halloween". They both share some of the same rich, bold colors and I felt they would work just perfectly together!
First, here is my layout: 

WPtutorial_final.jpg_web

Now, I'll break down the steps I used to create this page.

Step 1: I always like to start out a Webster's Pages project by doing a bit of fussy cutting, just to get me started. 

WPtutorial_step1.jpg_web

Step 2: I've used the "Ghosts" paper as my background. And because I like to get the most out of my paper, I've cut the middle out of it (since it will be covered up anyway) to use as the photo mat a little later in my project.

Next, I cut the "Little Fairy Tale" purple butterfly paper down to 10"x10" before border punching the edges. On top of that I layered the "Winter Fairy Tales Die Cut" Paper before adhering an 8"x8" piece from the "Night Owls" paper.

Finally, I added the fussy cut section from the "Little Fairy Tale" paper along the right-hand side to act as a base for my journaling. 

WPtutorial_step2.jpg_web

Step 3: Now it's time to start to put things together! I've added a book page underneath the circle photo mat cut from the "Ghosts" paper. 

WPtutorial_step3.jpg_web
Step 4: The purple Perfect Petals flower from the Once Upon A Halloween collection takes center stage. I thought it would be a great meeting point for my banners which were cut from more of the "Night Owls" paper.
Then I added some trims from the Everyday Poetry Trim Pack. Finally, I tucked a Florette behind the mailbox. WPtutorial_step4.jpg_web
Final Result:
Details, details, details~! This is where I have the most fun with my project- piling on the pretty little things that bring the layout to the next level; from the punched strips and bling on my banner to the bows, title, and fussy cut additions- all bringing just a little more interest to make this project complete.
Have you experienced your own FUSION of Webster's Pages? We'd love to see what collections you're mixing and matching...

Mix & Match Your Webster's Pages

If you're like us, you know the importance of using your stash. Who wants to buy new products if they don't jive with what you already have? That's why this week we're sharing all kinds of ways you can fuse collections. 

Prepare to think outside the box with A fusion of old + new!

You may not have thought Everyday Poetry would mesh with Park Drive, but this layout by Designer Diana Brodeur will change your mind: 

2nd-grade.jpg_web

She also pulled in the Sunday Picnic Dazzle Me Gems for a little extra "pop." What a great way to escape ordinary...And you'd never know these layouts weren't desiged to go together!

Designer Nina Ostermann mixed Park Drive and Girl Land to create this beauty:

Nina_web

Sometimes all you need is a little pop of something extra, and Nina's page certainly delivers. 

Gabrielle Pollacco mixed it up with FIVE (yes FIVE!) different collections to create this work of art: 

Gabi_web

This page came together using Game On papers, Yacht Club transparency frames, Wonderfall stickers and embellishments from Once Upon a Halloween and Royal Christmas. 

The results are so fantastic with just the right amount of "something unexpected." 

Designer Gerry van Gent also took the challenge to mix it up, with SEVEN {yes SEVEN!} different collections represented on this adorable layout:

It`s-your-daycopy

Gerry used elements from Park Drive, Once Upon a Halloween, Girl Land, Ladies & Gents, Sunday Picnic, Let`s Celebrate and Trendsetter with amazing results! 

Sometimes stretching your creativity isn't just about designing layouts...sometimes it's about the way you mix and match the old stash with the new stash. 

Beautiful things can happen when you think outside the box! 

So, which two collections do you most want to mix & match? Head over to our website and start shopping today!

Welcoming A New Member of the Webster's Pages Family...

You may know that Webster's Pages is a family owned company, but even those who aren't blood related still feel like we belong at the Thanksgiving table...and today, our table is expanding. 

We are so thrilled to introduce the newest member of the Webster's Pages family, Adrienne Looman.

Adrienne is the new Graphic Arts Manager here at Webster's and we want to shout it from the rooftops! We couldn't be more thrilled to have this girl on our team! 

Here's a bit more about Adrienne in her own words...

Dfdf

"I'm very down to earth and friendly. I wear my heart on my sleeve and love making new friends!

Growing up, I always had my hands dipped in some sort of creative project so it seems fitting that I ended up turning art into my career.

My husband often has to force me to stop working as I love what I do so much that even after all these years it's still more of a fun hobby than work ;) 

I have designed a variety of scrapbooking products,  catalogs, idea books, fabric, and digital scrapbooking as well.

I feel extremely privileged to now work with Webster's Pages and look forward to sharing my knowledge with the team! Big hugs to all!! :D

 

Won't you join us in welcoming sweet Adrienne to the Webster's Pages' team? 

We know there are GREAT things in store!

A New Kind of Scraplifting

This week, we are having tons of fun here on our blog. We've got some crazy exciting announcements and TONS (and I do mean TONS) of inspiration this week!

For the month of September, we decided to do something especially FUN...this month, our Design Team members are scraplifting each other, and we couldn't be more thrilled with the results.

We randomly assigned each designer someone else on the team to lift...and we're sharing just a sampling of the inspiring projects that resulted in this mix & match!

First, take a look at what happened when Kay Rogers lifted Diana Brodeur: 

Kay

Kay says: "I scraplifted Diana's Sister Love almost to a "t!" I am so in love with Diana's style . . . her pages almost always have a strong rectangle where all of the action happens. And her details just put the perfect touch on the page!"

We agree completely! And we love what happened when Diana scraplifted Designer Julie Walton: 

Bright

Diana says: "I was inspired by Julie Walton's "Streets of Istanbul" layout. I just love how she clustered several patterned papers behind her photo! Thanks so much for the inspiration"

Designer Iris Babao Uy had a blast lifting Tomoko Takahashi:

Iris-lifts-Tomoko_web

Iris says: "I love how Tomoko adds soft pastel tones to her pages of her beautiful girl. This page was very much inspired by her love of soft romantic colors, and pictures of pretty girls in pretty dresses. Thank you Tomoko for being such a wonderful inspiration to all of us!!"

And finally, Jaz Lee created a gorgeous layout inspired by Iris' "Charmed by You" page:

Jaz_web

Jaz says: "Iris's favourite use of ink, paint & mist on the background of her work, is truly breathtaking. Thank you Iris for such a sweet inspiration!"

That's only the tip of the iceberg...most of our designers joined in this fun challenge. Head over to THIS POST at inspireME today and see how the other girls were inspired by each other! We know you won't be disappointed.

A Clean & Simple Christmas

Simple, understated elegance is something to strive for, and our Clean and Simple girls have it down. Decide now to have a simple Christmas and eliminate some of the craziness of the season. You can start with your layouts. 

Look at this beauty from Designer Stacey Michaud: 

Star650.jpg_web

Stacey was able to create such a gorgeous page with rich, vibrant colors from our Royal Christmas collection. She also incorporated her journaling in such a fun, simple way, surrounded by stars and the perfect amount of detail:

Stardetail1.jpg_web
The layout design is simple, but the details make it a star, like a few perfectly placed hand-cut accents and a great combination of patterns. 
Stardetail2.jpg_web
Clean and Simple Designer Jill Cornell has also got this simple elegance down pat. Take a peek at her adorable Royal Christmas  layout: 
The_True_Meaning.jpg_web
The punched stars are clean and easy-going, but so fun to look at, and the way she's added patterns in little pops around the page makes this layout a scene stealer for sure. 
The_True_Meaning_details1.j
We love the way Jill stitches over the top of her Storyteller Alphas. What a great way to hold a title in place while adding a bit of visual interest at the same time. 
The_True_Meaning_details2.j
We know you're dying to get your hands on Royal Christmas, and on Monday we promised you we'd make that happen for one of our loyal friends.
We are Royally Happy to announce that Rea Custer is that lucky winner! Rea, email me at cwalsh{at}websterspages{dot}com and I'll get your gift certificate ordered right up for you!

Inspiring {Royal} Christmas

We're feeling so festive this week thanks to our newest collection, Royal Christmas...shipping out this very week! Christmas photos can get unruly if you don't get them organized right away, so why not start early this year? 

Documenting special ornaments is a fun way to commemorate the traditions of the season, like Diana Brodeur has done on this layout:

Mister-fluffy.jpg_web

Some of your child's handmade ornaments may not last through the years, so photograph them just in case, then doll that photo up with some Royal Christmas for added pop! 

Mister-fluffy2.jpg_web

Designer Jamie Harper is helping us get inspired for the season as well with her adorable little card set. It's tempting to stick to the tried and true sizes for your cards, but why not jazz them up with unexpected dimensions? 

Cards.jpg_web

This card is elegant and simple and would be easy to reproduce for your holiday greetings this year. We especially love the tiny bit of red trim peeking out at the bottom. 

JoyCard.jpg_web

And this card complements the first one perfectly. Jamie has dressed up these trees with dazzling gems for that perfect amount of something special. What a great idea!

MerryChristmas.jpg_web

Why wait to get started on your holiday preparations? Head on over to our website and start shopping this stunning collection now...it's already shipping so the mailman stalking can commence!

Oh {Royal} Christmas Tree...

It may be September, but it's never too early to start thinking about the holidays...especially where papercrafts are concerned. 

Our new Royal Christmas collection heads out the doors THIS WEEK and we can't wait to get it in your hands to see what you create! 

Designer Gerry van Gent is on hand today with some stunning inspiration:

Joy_gerry.jpg_web

This layout is so full of beautiful details, it hard to stop staring at it. We love all the fussy cut elements she's added here, pulling it all together in adorable little clusters:

Close_web

As if those weren't enough, she's also created something so special with this hand-stitched Christmas tree, adorned with a red-stamped star. What a brilliant idea!

Close-5.jpg_web

Gabrielle Pollacco created something a bit different...a Royal Christmas collection without the Christmas. 

We can't think of a better way to stretch your supplies than to use them for themed and non-themed pages. Just look at this stunner of a layout:

Snow-White2.jpg_web

So much elegance, but this is layout has nothing to do with Christmas at all! We love the versatility of these patterns! After all, we want you to use up every last scrap once you bring it into your stash. 

Here you can see the foundation Gabrielle created for this layout:

Snow-White-close1.jpg_web

From there, Gabrielle was able to build onto the background, adding embellishments in just the right places to complement her photo.

Notice how the background motifs serve as clusters in Gabrielle's embellishment arrangements? She does it here as well, and it works beautifully:

Gabrielle also created this gorgeous card using Royal Christmas, one of our new charms, some trims and tons of texture!

That little Charmer is one of our favorites, but we're pretty much smitten with the whole set.

So much inspiration for the holidays!

Today we have two gorgeous Christmas layouts using our new collection, and we're pretty sure you're going to fall in love with them! First up, take a peek at what Iris Babao Uy created:

IMG_3266

We always love to see the gorgeous texture of our trims put to good use, and Iris has done just that. The Royal Christmas trims are elegant and gorgeous: 

Websters_christmas_trim

They layer nicely and become borders for photos or the entire page itself.

And of course, our new charms are wonderful additions to add elegance to any layout.

Designer Larissa Albernaz also created a lovely, layered page. And even with all the details, the photo is still the star. 

Joy

We love the red trim on the red background, and of course, we're perfectly smitten with the Perfect Petals.

Aren't they lovely? They add so much to this layout.

Designer Anabelle O'Malley also created a gorgeous set of Christmas cards that would be fun templates for your holiday greetings this year.

A stitched border gives that perfect handmade elegance to a card that's perfectly designed. Clean lines and the little extra details really make this one stand out. We love the way the Mini Message sticker acts as the sentiment here.

So much texture makes each of these cards so touchable.

Indulge Your Inner Happy

We are so smitten with the idea of documenting our inner happy, we had to do it for just one more day. We're especially happy because our Sprinkles Craftbox launch was a huge success...and that little box was designed just for YOU...because you deserve it. 

Our designers have had so much fun (and been so inspiring) with the idea of documenting those little indulgences...take this layout from Jamie Harder: 

HappyWithYou_web

That's right. "Take it"...and Pin it. Because you're going to want to remember that one. Look at the adorable way she pulled Park Drive together to create such a gorgeous design. One of her most precious inner "happies" is this little girl...so she documented it...and the results are stunning. 

Close-up_web

Designer Jill Cornell took a little bit of a different approach. She decided to take those happy memories and consolidate them, focusing this layout on JUST her happy SUMMER memories... 

Happy_Summer_Memories_wen

She created a grid of her cell phone photos and decorated them using our very happy Palm Beach collection mixed with some of our newer embellishments, like this Perfect Petal. 

Happy_Summer__details1_web

We are swooning over the whimsical accents that break up the grid of photos and loving the way Jill pulled all of this happy together. 

Happy_Summer_Memories_close

So, tell us...what makes YOU happiest? 

Head over to our website and gather some goodies to document those memories...because you deserve it.

Mixed Media Indulgences

 This week, with the launch of our adorable Sprinkles Craftbox, we're talking about sweet indulgences...and we are love with this mixed media canvas by Designer Gerry van Gent: 

Season-everything-with-Love

This canvas is the perfect reminder that the best indulgence is life itself...We love how Gerry documented that here. By using paint and mists for her background, she was able to build a gorgeous, dimensional piece, one element at a time:

Close-2_web

 She also used stamps and our Storyteller Alphas to help finish the project off. 

Close-3_web

 To make the letters really pop, she outlined them with a fine-tipped black marker. Perfection!

Close-1_web
Have you used your papercrafting supplies to create a mixed media canvas? We'd love to see your creativity at work! 

Perhaps it's time to go out and make your life a little more delicious...Sprinkles will be back in October with entirely new products...

Speaking of October, we have TWO very lucky WINNERS of October's Sprinkles Craftbox. 

We have one winner, randomly selected from those who ordered September's box and she is: Jennifer Fox from Fredericktown, Ohio! And we have one winner who shared our Sprinkles photo on her Facebook page to help us spread the word and she is: Traci Severson

Jennifer and Traci, send your addresses to me at cwalsh{at}websterspages{dot}com and I'll get you on the list for October! 

What a happy Thursday!

Because you Deserve it {Document Your Indulgences}

One of our favorite things about The Sprinkles Craftbox is that it really is that something special just for you...not to say it wouldn't also make a fabulous gift, but we love the idea of indulging...just a little bit...because you deserve it. 

That's why we've asked some of our designers to Sprinkle their scrapbooking this week...and tell us about their little indulgences. They were happy to oblige. Take this digital layout from the fabulous Julie Walton: 

Indulgemuch_web

Julie used a bunch of iPhone photos to put together this adorable layout using our Park Drive collection--an idea we can't wait to try for ourselves! Your cell phone makes a great photo-diary, and it's fun to go back and remember some of your favorite indulgences. 

Designer Emeline Seet also took this challenge, creating a layout about something that makes her really happy: IMG_0194_web

This layout features the gorgeous Once Upon a Halloween collection, and we love the way Emeline pulled everything together. The little collection of details on the right-hand side is the perfect way to draw the eye straight toward the photo, a lovely documentation of Emeline's favorite spot.  

Look at all the beautiful elements: 

IMG_0196_web

When was the last time you did something just because it made you happy? This week, why not document that special something? We'd love to see your creations...

And we can't wait to unveil October's Sprinkles Craftbox...

Using almost exclusively the Craftbox product, Erin was able to create this gorgeous mini album with the most stunning interior pages:

WPsprinkles_pages1and2_web

Erin chose to follow a simple formula with the photo pages on the left and journaling pages on the right, and it worked just beautifully:WPsprinkles_pages3and4_web

She added some texture and dimension with hand-cut elements popped up with foam adhesive, and she also made wonderful use of the trim throughout the entire book.
