Creative Imaginations New Release - Marrakesh

"Christine Adolph's new collection, Marrakesh blends warm, rich colors along with beautiful patterns. Look for Marrakesh in store this April!"

Check out these and other new releases from Creative Imaginations on the blog!

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, so I just had to create a layout about me! I punched scalloped strips from the different purple papers found in this collection and layered them for a textured look that mimics my "new favorite dress". I added a bunch of Petaloo flowers and punched butterflies to finish off the layout.

The design of the layout inspired this card. I repeated the layered punched border strips to create a very mature looking birthday card.

I also used Marrakesh on this little purse mini album featuring my friend Dolores' little girl. I painted the handle and edges of the mini with egyptian gold luminarte.

See the button in the center of the flower? I made it with clay! Go me! I rolled the clay out and then pressed a dimensional button die from Cheery Lynn Designs, cut around it, poked out the holes and then let it dry. Once dry, I painted it with luminarte and then added it to my project.

I'll be posting lots more CHA projects in the next few days!!

Thanks for stopping by today!
