Mini Album by Liz Qualman
Yesterday on the blog our Design Team shared some ideas on how to use our 5 and 10 Things Pockets on a variety of projects. There just happens to be a super cute 5 Things Pocket in the new Fern and Forest Boy collection, so I thought I would share an idea for how to use it with our canvas or burlap mini albums. The pockets can be filled with the numbered cards that come with it, or you can add your own ideas like photos or other memorobilia.
I decided to use the 5 Things Pocket numbered cards to make tabs for my mini ablum to make it easy to turn the pages. I went with a very simple approach to this album and used the 6 x 6 paper pad for background papers and photo mats.
It's always fun to capture a favorite item of your child's. My son loves these shoes, so it will be fun to remember when his feet were this little, because I am sure he won't be wearing these long and they are just the cutest.
I also wanted to add some very personalized journaling since most of the pages of the album are so simple. This is actually the 12 x 12 Imagination Journal patterned paper, which I trimmed to fit the album. Using the 12 x 12 paper made the lines a lot easier to write on. I added some of the Favorite Pieces stickers to break up the writing and for more interest the page.
Please visit our online store to check out the new collection. Our shipping department is really quick, bet you could have it by early next week...
Have a wonderful day!
We are so excited to announce our newest cycling teams for the Fern and Forest Girl and Boy collections. These collections are our most adorable to date and we cannot wait to share some creative ideas starting in March. But until then...please help us congratulate all of the talented designers who will be joining us for this crafty ride.
We also want to thank all of the designers who applied and shared their wonderful creations and would very much like to encourage you to continue to follow our cycling teams. We still need cycling team members for two more collections - Poppy and Vintage Summer. AND of course we will have more releases this summer. So stay tuned...
We've LOVED all of the comments about what our fans plan to do with our collections. It's amazing to be part of such a creative community and your ideas are very important to us. So, keep the ideas flowing today as you look at our next release...
When was the last time that you completely fell in love with a boy collection? We've been listening to our fans and customers who want to see more gender specific collections and Fern and Forest Boy is the result of your feedback. I personally think it is one of the CUTEST collections I have ever worked with, but you decide...
How about a few gnomes to go with all the fairies from yesterday? The color palette and sentiments in the Fern and Forest Boy collection make it easy to capture all those moments from the little guys in your life.
This is such a great idea for a home decor item that can be added to a shelf, bookcase or table. Suzanned did a great job of capturing this fun sentiment of PLAY.
Who doesn't need a few more customized frames around the house? Vicki did a fantastic job of creating a fun, carefree frame, perfect for little and big boys.
Check this out... We have more CHA goodies to giveaway and will announce winners later this week. Leave a comment on the post today telling us which of our Fern and Forest collections you gravitate towards and why. Or maybe you love both, which is just fine by us - we just want to hear what you like about them.
We'll have a another peek tomorrow, so check back with us.
It's that time again ... everyone's scurrying around putting the final touches on plans and projects for CHA-Winter -- it's just a little over a week away! We're so excited, we wanted to give you a quick sneaky peek of our upcoming collections. Check back next week to see everything!
Yesterday, Liz shared some projects from our Just Because collection - which is shipping very soon!
One thing you'll love about Just Because is, while it's a great everyday collection, we've also included some wonderfully coordinated Valentine's-themed stickers, so you can create perfect Valentine's Day projects! Here's a peek:
And one more peek of some of the great colors and patterns in the collection (mmm I just love that paisley!):
In the spring, we'll introduce Fern & Forest ... for Girls and for Boys! These two whimsical collections combine natural elements with fun, fanciful designs, for capturing the adventures of your favorite boys and girls! Shipping in March.
And just in time for spring, we'll introduce Poppy...shipping in May! For me, Poppy = Perfection!
Finally Vintage Summer ships in June - for your warmest summer memories!
(These colors and patterns want me to pack a picnic lunch and head somewhere warm!)
One more thing ... be sure to check out our new Naturals embellishments.
They're not a collection --Naturals combine neutral colors with natural fabrics and textures, to coordinate with all of the LYB collections ... and your other projects!
Watch for more in the coming weeks! Looking forward to another fantastic CHA-Winter!
