Working with my NEW Webster's Pages 'Park Drive' Collection


Hi everyone!  I know, it's been quiet here at my blog for the last week!  We just took ourselves a little summer vacation up at my dear brother's cottage and had ourselves some nice relax time with the family.  But just before we went away I got some happy mail, some of the newest Webster's Pages collections!  Here I used the NEW 'Parkdrive' collection to make up these two layouts.  I just LOVE LOVE LOVE this paper collection!  It has all the beautiful botanical designs I've come to love about Websters Pages designs, and the color combinations in this collection just lift me up!
I received a bunch of the new Fabric Trims as well as the new Perfect Accents (Cameo's) as well....I'm always excited to see what cameo's have come out to match the new collections.  The camoe's for this collection are adorable!
I added a bit of painted and stamped design to this page using some water and mica powder (Perfect Pearls).  I just took a pain brush dipped it in some water, then the mica powders and brushed them onto the page.  I then stamped with the Diamond Tag stamp from Websters just around the edges of where I was placeing the photo.  I also used a white-out pen to add some dots in the darker area's of the design to give the page some whimsy. 

There are also some fun new Transparency sheets for the new collections.  There is a really cute transparency ticket sheet with little accent words.  I used one of them combined with the alpha stickers to create my title. 
The beauty of the Parkdrive collection is that you can go for a variety of looks to your layouts.  For the top layout I went with a bit more of an 'artsy' look using paper distressors and painted finishes.  But if clean fresh colors and designs are more your style, there are papers in this collection that work beautifully for that style.  In the above layout I scrapped some pic's of my youngest daughter playing crockette up at my parents place.  I was drawn to the apple greens and the gingham design.  I combined it with the soft preety pinks and added some of my favourite Websters Bloomers in the pink shade to embellish the page. 
Along with using some more of the sweet new WP Cameo's (BTW, they are mounted on those amazing Dusty Attic Cameo Sliders chipboard pieces)....I used some of the adorable new Charm Accents from Websters Pages.  Above is a close-up of the green rhinestone & butterfly charm.
So where can you get all these new goodies?  Well if your local store didn't order them in (they are shipping out soon to the retailers)....you can order directly from the Websters Pages Website!  Just for your convenience I've linked many of the new products I've mentioned here to the Websters Pages site, just click on the pink hi-lighted words for a quick connect.
Well, the summer break is already half done, and I've got so much more I want to do with the kids!  It all goes too fast doesn't it!  But for now, I'm pulling my camera card to get some of those cottage pic's developed so I can get scrapping again!  Thanks for stopping by today! :)

Beautiful layout - I like the way you make use of a quite heavily patterned paper ... I love beautifully patterned paper but often find them difficult to actually create a layout with. Love the cameos too. Elizabeth

Oh my oh Gabi, these are both really so beautiful! just adore the cameos. Quite often I get stumped by the pretty pretty patterns and end up hoarding the papers as I cannot bring myself to cut into them, or don't know how to make justice to them. Coming to your blog and seeing your amazing creations gives me incredible inspiration as I admire your stunning work. Thank you Gabi! So happy you got some family time, you really deserved it. Hope your weekend is a really good one! xoxo
