August 2014 - Cinema Collection

Today is the premier of our newest collection . . . Cinema!

A Note from Tricia
In full disclosure, we are literally obsessed with Retreat. It's always the first round in August that requires an exceptional level of focus from every team member. We're even dreaming about it! Our days are filled with wrapping gifts, double checking supply lists, loading pallets and placing final touches . . . all in the midst of shipping the Cinema collection. The loading dock has been a busy place, and it's fun to see the culmination of so much effort fall into place.

If you're not able to join us for the on-site Retreat, you won't want to miss the Retreat in a Box. It's a phenomenal way to enjoy workshops taught by the same instructors while you work at your own pace from home. Reserve your box today!

Meanwhile, the website team is working feverishly on our total renovation. We've checked in on the progress, and the updates are fantastic.

What's Ahead?
The Blueprints theme recommended by CS member Jodi Brewster is already in full swing. Jacqueline is putting finishing touches on artwork slightly reminiscent of a very popular collection from the distant past . . . Architecture (April, 2002). The color palette is warm and inviting, as it should be!

Kit and Color Details
It was impossible to settle on just one font for this versatile collection, but we narrowed it down to three common styles from the vintage movie era. We used Verve, Bebas Neue, and ArtBrush.

Metallic GrayR127G119B116

Orchid, Lagoon, Ash and India Black are terrific ink color selections to coordinate with this month's paper collection.

Tomorrow we'll take a closer look at the fourteen layouts and fifteen cards created with your new Cinema kit.

Enjoy the show!


  1. I have already started playing with the digi kit and it is fantastic!! Love the colors and artwork, which, by the way, speaking of Retreat, coordinate perfectly with the 2014 Retreat Time of your Life kit!!! Just saying... :)

    1. Hey Julie, how have you been? Going to retreat next weekend? Wish I was. Do you know if CS has ever done a baseball themed kit? Hubbs and my daughter are planning to visit as many ballparks as they can, and I need to scrap that!

    2. Hi Deb! I believe the closest they came to a baseball themed kit was Varsity. It focused on sports in general.
      I am looking forward to leaving for Retreat in a couple of days, very exciting and busy. ;)

    3. Wow..Varsity. I'm sure I don't any of that kit anymore. Thanks tho. Have a blast at Retreat, I hope to see you there one day!

  2. The colors of this kit are lovely, and such a unique combination with the wine and aqua.


  3. Even better than expected - Can't wait!!

  4. Very fun! I'm stalking GHM already and I'm loving that film strip washi - too cute!

  5. As we often go to the moies,this new kit just fits in with our life! Love the colors,love the images!!

  6. September sounds amazing too (coming from this Construction gal!)

  7. The colors will be fun and exciting to work with. We should have a video (not just digital) segment to go with the 'Cinema' theme. Can't wait till 8/20--right after my bday!!!

    1. Also, I'm a font fanatic. These will be fun to work with but another vibrant color would be nice.
