An Exciting Announcement

Do you see something new at my blog today?!!  Look over there to the right... I have been bubbling over with excitement with news that I'm finally able to share!  Lori Whitlock invited me to be a part of her Creative Team for the next 6 months!!!  I'm beyond thrilled to have this opportunity to work with her and all her products!

If you're not familiar with the name, I am sure you own a few of her products without even realizing it.  She has oodles of talent designing everything from numerous collections for Echo Park, shapes for Silhouette America (over 1800!), ultra inspiring digital kits available at Jessica Sprague, upcoming project life products with Becky Higgins and even beautiful fabrics through Riley Blake Designs.  Phew, that's quite the list...  You can see all her wonderful offerings at her blog here and her full Silhouette shapes portfolio here.  :)

To kick off this amazing adventure I thought I would share a project that I made for her design team call... This project uses a paper collection Lori designed for Echo Park called This and That~ Graceful.  The metal tin was leftover packaging from an old Silhouette gift card from the early days before they offered subscription plans. I made this as a gift album to give to my grandmother as some happy mail. 

For this album I used the following Silhouette shapes designed by Lori:
Echo Park flourish
Echo Park flower (print and cut)
Other supplies used:
Patterned Paper- Echo Park's This and That Graceful Collection
Rhinestones- Queen & Co.
Ribbon- American Crafts
zig-zag border die- Papertrey Ink
Vinyl- Oracal
font- CK Script
Other- Glossy Accents

Thanks so much for stopping by!  :)
