Melissa Phillips: There’s so much to love about the new J’Adore collection, but my favorite thing is and always has been pattern, pattern, pattern!
I love mixing and matching prints and patterns with one another, combining different colors, and using a favorite die cut or two to make a focal point, such as the large bow used here on my first card.
The patterns used in J’Adore can fit any style such as girlie and sweet, playful and whimsical, or bold and trendy. I can’t forget to mention the darling gold foil hearts and crochet heart accents….what perfect additions for Valentine’s Day or any day for that matter.
Audrey Pettit: The new Adrift collection is such a bright and vibrant line, with a fun nautical look that has been so popular recently in the papercrafting world. Really perfect for beach and seaside layouts and cards, Adrift is also great for adding a touch of nautical flair to your home decor.
This little star paper pillow is super quick and easy to make, and fits into any small nook or cranny in your home decor. They tuck nicely into a basket or bowl, or can be used like a pillow on couch or chair. Better yet, they are super easy to make, using only a bit of paper and a few supplies you probably already have on hand.
Simply trace or die cut a star pattern from a variety of Adrift patterned papers, and piece the pattern onto cardstock. Stitch around the pieces, if desired, then layer onto a second sheet of cardstock. Trim around the stars, then adhere the edges only with hot glue or tacky glue, leaving a small opening in which to add a bit of polyfill stuffing, or tissue paper before adhering all the way closed. Trim around the entire shape using pinking shears. Then embellish with a bit of trim, chipboard, and die cuts.
