That's right! The new Webster's Pages collections from the Summer CHA start shipping today!! And to celebrate, Websters Pages and the design team are having a fun little blog hop to share projects made with the gorgeous new collections and to share some amazing give-aways as well!!
The hop begins at the Websters Pages Blog, where you will find a beautiful, heartwarming story and the list for the hop. You should have come to me from Kay Roger's beautiful blog, if not then hop over to the Websters Pages blog and begin from there.
I'll begin by sharing 2 projects I made with two of the newest collections. I made cards up as my projects for the hop because I wanted to step out of my everyday element (I LOVE doing 12x12 layouts). I find myself always in need of cards and what nicer way to show people you care than to give a handmade card? For me scrapping is not just a hobby that allows me to play with pretty papers. It's about sharing my stories and photos and showing those around you that you love them. What nicer way to do this than to send a hand crafted card right? This first card is one I made with the gorgeous New Parkdrive Collection.....
I wanted to make an interactive card with a unique design for a party invitation. So I used a scallop edge die cut paper from Websters Pages (the Sunday Picnic Die Cut, the Game On die cut has the same shape as well) as a template, cut it in half, traced it onto some Parkdrive paper and folded in at the two sides to create the pocket/corset design...
I then made a little insert card for the information for the invite, (who, when, where) that can be pulled out and slipped back in. I just LOVE the new Designer Trim cards that coordinate with this collection as well as the stunning NEW CHARMS that also coordinate with this collection. There is an extra waide lace trim in this collection of trims that worked perfectly for the fabric overlay look I wanted to give my corset design, and the sweet Cream Floral Charm with the soft purple/pink tear drop gem added just the finishing touch I was looking for. Here are some close-up pic's...
The floral design is from the Websters Pages Park Drive Digital Motifs. I printed off the floral element and cut it out as an accent for the insert card (so I guess you can call this a hybrid card).
For my second card I used the Once Upon a Halloween Collection. I just love the scripted paper on one of the patterned papers....and again, I LOVE the Designer Trims that go with this collection....the large lace/circle design trim is one of my favourites on the trim card!
For my card title I stamped on one of the patterened papers and finished the edges with a little machine stitching.
The flower was made from another one of the fringe trims (Tutu Blue Trim) from the Mesh Trim Card. I made it by simply running a bead of glue around the edges of a small punched circle from patterned paper...I ran the trim around twice for a full effect.
Here are some of the New products I used to create my two projects....you can find them all at the Webters Pages Website and Yep! you can go ahead and start ordering today!!
