Bright and Beautiful is the season that is upon us! What are your plans for this holiday season? Of course there is always the seemingly never ending journey to provide the perfect gift to a loved one… festive parties and sweet family gatherings… cooking and baking… decorating and more decorating of tables… and the list goes on! My more vintage years are producing a longing for simplicity. I am beginning to understand my mother’s desire for “less is more” with decorating. Is this a new twist for me or just a reflection of where I am THIS season… only time will tell.
The sketch challenge for PPA 232 has so many fun layers in it to help you to differentiate, coordinate and accent images, papers and embellishments.
This card contains sneak peeks of new products offered in the upcoming Occasions catalog. The designer series paper (has “joy” attached to it) is called Stacked with Love. It contains a variety of patterns in Calypso Coral, Crisp Cantaloupe, Real Red and Whisper White with a Basic Black and Whisper White reverse side design. Very cool!! The Bermuda Bay sequin trim is a gorgeous accent. The ribbon behind the Bermuda Bay baker’s twine is called White Jute Ribbon. It is 1-1/4″ wide. I pulled several threads from each side, left the wispies and folded the removed threads into the bakers twine bow. This is the second project where I added the Something Borrowed embellishment. Love, love, love that sparkle!!
