Share a Moment with Leslie

Hi everyone.  This time around we have a layout created by Leslie using the beautiful August Kit with paper from Maja Designs.  

 This is my daughter in a hat that we covered with all those older Prima flowers from the milk bottles!  She went to a tea party and had to wear a fancy hat.  
They were having a contest on who had the best design and she won!

Our August Paper and Add-Ons

The design team is busy working with the August kit and I'm hearing nothing but good things from them. The paper in our August kit is from a Swedish manufacturer that we have not used in the past - Maja Designs. This paper is beautiful!  The true softness of it and the subtle details do not show well in photos, but you will love this heavy weight paper.  You may purchase a Paper Add-on, or a collection of this paper in our store.

We are also previewing our add-ons this month, beginning with the Flower Add-on.  This add-on includes items from Petaloo, Green Tara, Prima, Webster's Pages, and Manor House.

In our Embellishment Add-on you will find an alphabet from Jillibean soup, as well as items from KaiserCraft, Dusty Attic, May Arts, Teresa Collins, and some beautiful pins from Prima.

Some individual items from these add-ons are also available in the store.  

Here is your first chance to see one of the layouts created by the design team 
using the August kit.

"23 Mos." by Erin Blegen

I love the variety of color available in the August kit! I tend to turn my photos black and white, but there are certain ones I really feel need to remain in color- like this one of my middle child, Gunner. I am in love with his big brown eyes and the shades of these particular papers and flowers allowed me to let his beauty shine in color!
