I'm excited to host a giveaway of the new "Capture Life" collection here. To enter leave a comment below. I will draw a winner a random to receive a sampling of the new products. For extra chances to win visit my facebook page & Instagram (@allisonkreft). Winners will be announced March 17th.
I'm delighted to show you my newest release with Echo Park Papers. Capture life is a hip & fresh collection perfect for documenting your daily activities. This line includes 12 double-sided patterned papers, 6x6 paper pads and 3 double-sided distressed solid papers. Also from this collection are the new designer dies, 2 sticker sheets, plus 3x4 and 4x6 pocket page cards!
All of these items will begin shipping in early April so be sure to request them at your favorite online stores and local retailer!
We've also created a unique black and white edition for this collection with new patterns. It is designed to coordinate with the color collection, but works well with your other favorites. This collection is bound to inspire you.
I can't wait to see how everyone will use the new Sprinkled with Love Collection. Check you favorite LSS or online stores for the new line. It's also available at Two Peas under what's hot right now :) I think the lightbulb paperclips are one of the favorites!
Both of my new releases have a great selection of coordinating embellishments. Visit Webster's pages to see them all. Here is the entire Spinkled with Love collection, and you can find the entire Hello World Collection here. Each collection has overlays, a diy chipboard album, paperclips, straws, wood veneers, trim, photo corners, stamps, paperclips, cameos, stickers and more!
Here are a few pics from CHA. Most of them were taken at the Webster's Pages booth where I released 2 new collections. It was a wonderful show and I loved seeing so many great friends & meeting new people. Thanks to everyone who stopped by.
I'm also excited to show you "Hello World". This is the second collection I designed for Webster's Pages debuting at CHA. You can see the papers on the Webster's Pages blog. (Embellishments will be coming soon)
Here's is the first look at my new collection "Sprinkled with Love" for Webster's Pages. You can see the reveal of papers on the Webster's Pages blog. Later this week we will be showing the embellishments that coordinate with the line, along with my other collection.
I'll also be at CHA at the Webster's booth, so be sure to stop by if you are going to the show.
Earlier this summer we had photos taken by Veronnica Watson. Veronnica did such an amazing job at capturing our growing family. Here are some of my favorite photos she took. Aria is about 1 month old in these pics.
Thanks Veronnica, I will always treasure these photos.
Since Amy just had her first baby a few weeks ago she asked me to create a guest post for her blog. I wrote about how I find inspiration and keep my creative juices flowing. Check out the post on her blog.
Since I've had another baby, I've been looking for new ways to try and get caught up on emails and other work in my free time. I have been lugging my laptop to the coffee shop when I need break from the home office, but that can be more trouble than it's worth. Recently I got an iPad mini & new keyboard case which has been so convenient to use. The Snugg iPad Keyboard Case is awesome! It clips onto the front of my iPad mini and protects the screen when I am not using it. When I need a keyboard to write emails or a blog post it sets up in just a few seconds, and it so much easier to type on than the keyboard on the tablet. Definitely one of my new favorite gadgets.
Make Your Christmas More Natural With Three Eco-Friendly Suggestions
This coming Christmas, it doesn’t necessarily mean you need to spend a lot on both gifts and decorations. In fact, you can cut down your Christmas shopping budget—there are actually many creative and eco-friendly ways to feel the spirit of Christmas right in your home. You just need some old materials, the knack for creativity, and the will to have a very eco-friendly yet meaningful holidays.
Recycled Materials To Make Christmas Ornaments You can actually use your old CDs to create a sparkly Christmas tree ornament. Yahoo Voices suggests that you can “cut them in to shapes for ornaments, or use them to make photo ornaments. This is a great idea if you are looking to make your own decorations this year. CD ornaments look amazing next to a Christmas tree. The lights reflect off of the Cd's and make these handmade ornaments stand out even more.”
Use LED Christmas Lights Another way to save resources is to use eco-friendly decorations. Yahoo Voices contributor Chelsie suggested that in order “to save money in electricity expenses, and keeping your Christmas lights lasting even longer, use LED lights for decorating. LED lights are made of semi-conducting material, instead of incandescent filaments.” There are brands that are members of the WEEE Distributor Taking Back Scheme, which allows you to recycle your electronic waste without harming the environment. For example, a set of LED Christmas lights can be 90 percent more efficient than using traditional Christmas lights. They usually emit little or no heat which makes them all the more safe to use. Also, Marks & Spencer recommended using power saver during the holidays so your outlets won’t be supplying power when not in use.
Make Nature Your Christmas Motif Diane Selkirk from BCLiving said that one of the best ideas to include as a Christmas motif is an eco-friendly theme. “Think of how your grandma or favourite natural-type friend decorated during the holidays—with evergreen boughs and holly cut from local trees (ask first!), homemade ornaments and bowls of fruit, nuts or pine cones,” she said. Meanwhile, a veggie feast this Christmas will not just get you more in touch with nature but also keep you on the healthy side.
