**NEW** Websters Pages!! & A Card for a Special Girl...

This is my first page working with the new Webster's Pages 'Western Romance' Collection!!  I got my design team package last week in the mail and was just giddy pulling out all the beautiful products that have just come out!  Yep! new cameo's (Silhouettes), GORGEOUS laces and trims! Soft and pretty bloomers and the cutest cameo pins!  If you like collection packs you are going to LOVE these new ones that Brandin has put together, this time around she has put in 2 of every patterned paper, 1 Die Cut paper (the one in the photo above is from the Western Romance collection), the alpha stickers (my Favourite scripted font!!), a sampling of the new WP Bling!, 2 x 12" strips of Bloomers, and some coordinating Fabric tickets!) I think these collection packs are a great bargin and give you a taste of so many of the pretty things Websters Pages makes. 

  I made this page up for my oldest daughter Chloe, she recently turned 13 and although I don't like to put a lot of emphasis on 'outward' beauty when dealing with my children, I had to make up this page because as I was looking at these pic's I recently took of her, it dawned on me how Chloe doesn't follow the trend of so many of her classmates in wearing heavy eyeshadow and liner, dark lipstick and a lot of makeup.....yep, so many of the 13 year olds I'm seeing are just over the top with trying to look older.  I'm grateful that Chloe is happy to just put on a little lip balm and off she goes.  The emphasis of the title is not so much the 'beauty' but the 'natural' part.  To me her beauty comes from her inner self, the kindness she shows to others and how she applies herself to her schooling and studies.
Supplies used on this page:
Webster's Pages papers (Western Romance Collection), WP alphas, WP Silhouettes, WP Bloomers, WP Trim (gold lace along bottom edge and gathered to make bloom in top right corner), Dusty Attic Chipboard (circle frame), Baroque corners (framing the cameo piece), cardstock.
Here are a few close-ups...


I have one more project to share with you and that is a card I made for a very special little girl.  Olivia is a little girl who would be starting kindergarten in a few days but is presently in the hospital undergoing surgery for a brain tumor in a very critical part of her brain.  Her family has asked if we would be kind enough to send her some cards to cheer her up.  Here is a link to her story Olivia  Here is the card I made for her and will be sending off in the morning...

If you would like to join in and send this sweet child a card you can send it to this address:

You're right: Chloe is a real natural beauty, she looks so beautiful with just a bit of lipbalm on:) And your layout is a true beauty too! I absolutely love all the soft pink and your use of the trims and bloomers. The flower you made with a combination of these two looks stunning:)

My mouth just closed. Unbelievable!!!!

tracy said...

I have been a huge fan of yours for a while now. Your pages are always my favorites. I was wondering how you made the pink cardstock background sheet. Did you trace the pattern from the webster's pages paper and then cut? If so you did an amazing job. Please do a tutorial on this. I would also love a tutorial on the layout before this how you made the outside waves. I know how you crinkled the paper but what did you use to cut it in the first place. Anyway your card and your layout are fabulous just stunning a perfect tribute to your daughter and a sick little girl. Thank you so much for sharing and inspiring.

This has to be an echo echo of everything the previous ladies have written Gabi, like so many of them I've been a fan for a long time and each new layout has brought out many oooh's and aaah's. WP is just the perfect match for you and you work their products to perfection. Thanks ever so much for sharing both this gorgeous page and the beautiful card, you really do have such a kind and beautiful heart! xoxoxo

Michelle said...

These are so beautiful!! What a special card to send! The LO is gorgeous as well. I love the message too. I too have a 13 yr old girl where all of her friends are into the heavy make up and what not. Mine is not, but is getting pressure from her friends. I am going to show her your page.
