NEW Creative Imaginations and New Petaloo

Craft and Hobby manufacturers are busy in sunny California setting up their booths and preparing to show off their new releases. I wish I could be there, we just got hit with another foot of snow here in NJ.

I've started posting some sneak peeks for the companies that I created projects for and will continue over the next few days.

Today, I'm sharing a layout and card that I created with one of Creative Imaginations' new releases designed by Samantha Walker called Heidi. 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!!

I used Heidi, along with CI's new gingham cardstock, some banana papers and corrugated cutables to create a Springy layout featuring my friend Dolores' little daughter. (The pennant banner and fence were cut using dies by Cheery Lynn Designs)

I used patterned paper and a sticker from this collection to create this baby boy card.

I'm also sharing an 8x8 layout and card created using the new brightly colored flowers and crocheted trim from Petaloo.

I used the flowers here to "hug" the photo of the boys and me. (I used lots of luminarte Radiant Rain shimmering spray to create the background and change the color of the lace trim)

I mixed one of Petaloo's existing products, Candies, with the new brighton flowers and crocheted trim to create this simple, elegant card.

I had a lot of fun working with all of these products! Stay tuned for more new releases!

Thanks for stopping by the blog today! Hope you have a scrappy day!!
