Hi friends!! I am super excited to share with you a peek at my new collection today! It’s called CAROUSEL and I hope you love it as much as I do! The colors are bright and vibrant and perfect for your summertime memories and your happy everyday moments too! Think cotton candy pink, vintage teal and popcorn yellow! The colors really pop and will bring any project to life!!!

I wanted to incorporate a bit of the CAROUSEL theme into this collection and include some fun icons in the artwork… ferris wheels, circus tents, the cute ticket booth, carousel animals and more. I really really LOVE how they turned out and especially because you can use them in so many ways! They are so whimsical and cute and totally work for party decor, scrapbook pages about your kids, birthday cards etc. They fall right in that window of trendy and cute and also totally versatile – not too sophisticated and not too juvenile either. My goal was to be able to use these products for our family memories and also for our little ones too and I am so happy with how it turned out. Depending on which products you choose and how you spin it, CAROUSEL really works for all ages!

Then of course, there are LOTS of everyday icons and fun art that goes with everything – hearts, stars, bows, florals and lots of great staple patterns like stripes, polka dots, marble, scallops, buffalo check, etc. I just LOVE playing up those basics in new and interesting ways and I think you are going to have fun using all of the papers in this collection!

I could talk about it all for hours, but I’ll let the images speak for themselves and not keep you waiting any longer… Here’s a pretty big peek into what CAROUSEL is all about!! We will be sharing lots more photos and full images of all the papers and products in a few weeks, so stay tuned!! Some of these are the artist renderings of the products so you can get a good idea of what they will look like, but I can’t wait for you to see the real things too!! I am SUPER EXCITED about everything and especially the new products like the puffy word stickers, banner shapes, RIBBON!!, the metal enamel shapes!!, and the ribbon bows! I’ve done smaller ribbon bows before, but these are BIG and I think you are going to love the size of them!! So fun! Also, the way the ribbon is packaged… I can’t wait for you to see! It is total happiness for me!!

Well, I hope you enjoyed this little peek and it makes me even more excited to show you everything in real life and in use on some projects! Right now my studio is covered in all the new products and I am having so much fun creating with all of this. We will have lots of fun ideas and inspiration for using everything and I can’t wait to share it all with you!
