April 2014 - Hydrangeas Collection

The long-awaited Hydrangeas collection is leaving the warehouse today. Check out this beautiful color palette:

A Note from Tricia
We've barely caught our breath after returning from Columbus, and I'm heading "up North" on Thursday for scrapbooking camp at Fort Wilderness. Then, we're off to the Milwaukee Scrapbook Expo and the Great Lakes Mega Meet in Novi, MI. If you're thinking of signing up for a workshop, don't hesitate! I'm so happy to welcome our new members hailing from the Buckeye State!

I'd like to thank our long-time member, Staci Brightwell, for the inspiration behind this month's beautiful Hydrangeas collection. Jacqueline provided her downright magical design genius to the concept, and we were able to get our hands on some beautiful textured papers . . . an increasingly difficult task. So far, our team is having a blast "playing" with the kit. (It's a tough job, but someone has to do it.) I'm looking forward to seeing what you create with this beauty! Now, if we could just get spring to cooperate . . .

Congratulations to those of you completing eight weeks of Boot Camp and your efforts to finish those pages, cards and projects. We are eager to reveal the beautiful new collection we've created to celebrate this accomplishment! The kit will be released to Boot Camp participants on Sunday, and to all on Tuesday, April 8.

What's Ahead?
Denim and zippers and rivets, oh yeah! Next month's Dungarees collection is perfect for the boys and men in your life. And perfect if you like comfy jeans. And perfect if you have photos of people wearing jeans. In other words, it's going to be perfect! Look forward to deeply textured papers in warm, earthy colors.
