Sassafras Love

Ok, I just finished working with the AMM September kit and it feels like it was made for me, especially the new Sassafras! The colors worked perfectly with some of my new beach vacation pictures.

Here are a couple of my faves:

Do you ever see a trend you want to incorporate into your work? I noticed a lot of white cardstock at CHA and loved the clean look and strong contrast that it gives - so this is my take at adding white cardstock to my own style.

Misting a page from the Jenni Bowlin bingo book with some Ranger Adirondack mists - love the intensity of color.

Some softer Shimmerz misting for a watercolor look. And the photo edges have a sanded look from a Hof3 photo mask.

Showing the depth of my embellishments on the side.

I added some super long stitches with black pearl cotton to outline the edges.

Another priceless photo of Mark and Emma - reaching to the sky - love this photo edge from French Laundry Drop and Drag Photo Frames by Sande Krieger.

I did partial stitching around the zig-zag edge of the Sassafras paper.

I played around with the title work a little here....

The upper embellishment cluster and my misting - again with the Adirondack inks and a chipboard from Pink Paislee. I thought the mini Maya Road houses went with the theme of castles.


We just added a new design team member to The Next Step - I am crazy about this girl! She has a wonderful sense of color and style....and she writes great tutorials! Welcome, Tricia!!

I had a fun mail day yesterday - I won a RAK from Amy Tara's blog and let me say - WOW!! So, now I have the gorgeous new Crate papers to play with - love the colors!! Thanks, Amy Tara!!
