Happy Monday!

I'm back with another Monday addition to the Blog!

It's week 2 using the Natural Living kit! Have you see what the Design Team has done so far...AMAZING! There are so many fun embellishments in this kit and the paper rocks! Basic Grey really has some cool flowers and felt embellishments (that are super sticky and not going to fall off the page). It's nice to work with already made embellishments, sure makes finishing a page go fast!

Isn't the Basic Grey doily paper BEAUTIFUL! I wanted just the upper corner to peek out, so I rolled the corner and ran my sewing machine on the edges to keep it tacked down (plus I like the look of stitching!)

What do you do when you have a sheet of alpha's and there is only include 1 "f"? I get crafty and trim the negative portion out as I did for the word "for." Another idea would be to fill the empty space with a wet glue and poor micro beads or glitter into the empty space or place the negative letters onto a piece of cardstock and cut around the letters. So many possibilities!

I guess this post is going to be short and sweet this week. I'm getting so excited for all the new products coming into the BlueMoon store. I'm drooling over the Cosmo Cricket (material girl and joy ride lines), Dear Lizzy Line---so glad I bought her book a couple weeks ago I just love it, Websters Pages (love the Life's Portrait line), Maya Road--- I really could just go on and on. How about you, what lines are you drooling over and must have???

Happy Monday!
