First, I want to take a moment to let you know Paisleys and Polka Dots will be taking a few days off. There will be NO SHIPPING from April 11th through April 15th. We will return to shipping orders on the 16th. Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.
Recently, I went on a 3 day scrap retreat with friends...18 of us total! Although I spend my retreats not scrapping for me personally, I do enjoy the "girl time," spending time with friends, and they always inspire me to get tons of scrapping done for future releases. I'm pretty sure it's all the eating, chatting, and more eating! Junk food and good conversation always makes for great inspiration, right? I completed two full releases and I'm loving both of them!! Yep! There was very little sleep for me but I was on a mission. So, would you like to see.....
The first release is the Urban Traveler collection from Simple Stories. After having so much fun creating the Good Stuff smash book I couldn't resist another smash book with this travel collection. I am taking my daughter on a cruise in May as a gift for her college graduation and I can't wait to fill this book with all our wonderful memories. And I already have a matching two page layout for our family album too!
Here is a bit of a closer look at the front cover. This smash book has the three inside tabbed pages created for you so all you have to do is assemble them. Then, I have added 2 extra chipboard tag pages that have also been designed and ready for assembly. This means you have a total of 11 pages (including the front cover) already designed for you. Again, all you have to do is assemble them. Next, fill in your details and memories on the journaling pages included in the album and add photos. The kit will include extra 12 x 12 sheets of paper and some extra embellishments to add in your own creativity on the extra pages.
I love the different sized tags popping out from the book. It adds so much dimension.
Here is one of the inside tag pages added to the book.
Here is another inside page. Many of the tags inside the book open up to allow for more pictures inside.
And here is the next release. This masculine collection from Fancy Pants Designs is called Swagger. It's perfect for a graduation, Father's Day, Dad, or for that special "guy" in your life. There will ba a mini album kit and also a two page layout kit.
I guess I was in the mood for tags when I designed these releases because this album also has different sized tags which add dimension to the album. I'm loving these tags!!
Here is a closer look at a few of the inside pages.
All of these kits will be available on the Paisleys and Polka Dots website May 1st. Enjoy!!
