Hi all! Make sure to check out our brand new Sassafras Sweetly Smitten set below, it is gorgeous! Wanted to show you some of Echo Park's new line Playgound. Let me know what you think and if you would be interestedin this collection. I like using primary colors every once in a while. Great for boys and girls!

Let me know what you think! Have a great day!

More than Slightly Smitten with this line!

Intoducting Sweetly Smitten by Sassafras. This is one of the prettiest lines I have seen in a long time. The colors are simply gorgeous and so vibrant. I am loving Sassafras lately. The banner stickers are one of my fave things to use! I decided to just make a set of this line instead of using it in a kit, it is just great on its own! So here is our Smitten set..

For $13.50, you get 8 sheets of Sassafras Sweetly Smitten paper, 1 sheet of sweet treats, 1 matching alpha, and 1 sheet of banner stickers! You won't be disappointed in this, trust me! It is too die for! Don't forget to check out all our Prima, Echo Park, and our beautiful Bouquet kit as well. Visit our store or email me at to order! Enjoy your day!

More Sweetness with Casey...

Good Morning Everyone! Today I'm sharing a couple of fun layouts that I put together using the Sweetness Collection by Pink Paislee. When I first saw this collection, I absolutely fell in love with it. Although it was released during the Valentine's Day time period, you could definitely use it throughout the year on other projects - especially if you love to use pinks and greens together, which is one of my favorites! Check out this first layout where I was able to incorporate a few of the extra elements available in the Sweetness Collection....
I absolutely love the background on the paper - it just gives the layout so much depth...One fun technique that I was able to incorporate into this layout was using some quilting floss for some additional stitching in blue for some additional is a closer look at that...
For this next layout, I did a page about my daughter's love for playing with building blocks. I incorporated more of the Sweetness goodies and added in a few extra goodies - aren't those buttons delish!

Some Sweetness!

Happy weekend everyone! Especially happy long weekend for those in Ontario, Canada :)
Its Liz here to share a few layouts I made with my kit this month - lots of Pink Paislee Sweetness. I loved this kit! The yellows and pinks are so great.

For my first layout.... Sweet Shades
My brothers girlfriend, me and my SIL.... being silly at Downtown Disney trying on sunglasses at night :) All the papers are Pink Paislee as well as the sticker borders, letters and tickets. The heart ribbon and layered flower are AC.

Second layout (yes I know I used the same background...but I love that paper!)
Chic Chicks....
Chris and I at CHA with Nicole Harper - Such a sweetie! She shops at my LSS (Scrappy Chic) hence the name Chic chicks :)
Everything here is Pink Paislee as well except for the Jenni Bowlin button and cosmo cricket letter stickers.

Hope you all have a great weekend!
Check out the store for the new kit Bouquet - totally amazing! Lots of MME goodness in there!
