Paper Camellia Guest Design Feature

Hi there! The November kits at Paper Camellia have a lot of my new Open Book products in them and I was thrilled when they asked me to be a guest designer!! I love to promote and showcase other fabulous companies and it is so fun to collaborate on things like this!!

I used the November Main Scrapbook Kit only and created a layout and a card! With the new baby coming very soon I didn’t have time to create more but I definitely could have because the kit is packed full of cute coordinating products!!

I used black thread in my sewing machine this time (as opposed to the white that I normally use 99% of the time). The Open Book collection has a lot of pops of black, which I am LOVING so I thought it would be fun to tie that in with the black stitching!! Kind of different for me but I like how it turned out!


The lovely ladies at Paper Camellia are offering a giveaway here on my blog today!! One lucky winner chosen at random will win the November Main Scrapbook Kit (that I used for my projects above).


To enter this giveaway, leave a comment here on this blog post and I will be back to draw a winner at the end of the week! Good luck!!

Happy Tuesday!



The winner of the Paper Camellia Kit is:

JENNIFER WOODΒ Β Thanks for the chance! I love when kit clubs collaborate with my favorite designers!

Congrats Jennifer! I will email you to coordinate the receipt of your kit!
