This week we're going to spend time peeking at the incredible project samples that were presented at the Crate Paper booth over the weekend in honor of the Craft and Hobby Association trade show. Not surprisingly, this season's batch of handmade creations were a total success thanks to the terrific CP Gals who worked night and day to bring them to life. They truly outdid themselves again and the booth looked AMAZING!
A special thank-you to Christine Middlecamp, Melissa Phillips, Rebecca Luminarias, Jennifer Chapin and Maria Lacuesta.
Christine: You won't need to take an expedition to enjoy all the little luxeries that "Journey" has to offer. From petite teepee's, to magical gold overlays, to colorful chevrons and more, this collection is a showstopper! There are a vast selection of papers and embellishments to choose from here and every square inch is worth your scissor's attention. Hands down, this collection is my new FAVORITE.
Kiss Kiss might not be new, but it still made a debut at CHA. I took a slightly softer approach with this collection. First, I coordinated a 4-block grid composition and decorated each section with a balance of matching embellishments. The running theme is 'hearts'-echoed throughout.
Finally, a pretty arrangement of wooden houses with plush rosettes and tails. I spray painted the houses a champagne gold, covered the backs with canvas and layered cupcake cake liners, one on top the next, to create housing for vintage-inspired flowers and felt. Total cuteness!
I have a couple more projects up my sleeve using Craft Market, but I'm going to save them for next week, when we introduce the new 2015 Crate Paper Design Team!!
