exciting news!

i have some exciting news to share today--which is actually kind of old news by now, but i haven't gotten to personally share it with you yet...I was asked to join the Crate Paper Design Team!  i am beyond thrilled to have been considered and when my invite came last month, i said YES immediately--i can't imagine anyone saying no!  i feel like i am way out of my league when i look around at the other team members; they are so, so talented!  but this opportunity is amazing and i intend to take full advantage of it and learn everything i can from this experience and from the other ladies on the team. 

with CHA (Craft and Hobby Association convention) happening back in July, i created a few cards for the Crate Paper booth using some products from their soon-to-be released new collections.  if you like Crate Paper, you are going to love the new collections!  

i made these two cards using the new Acorn Avenue line--it's very fall-ish and eclectic.  most definitely not a one-dimensional collection by any means!

  the next two cards were made using the On Trend line.

this collection, too, features many different colors and graphic elements and was so much fun to work with.  it's very, well...trendy!

with the new collections, CP is expanding their product line to offer you many, many more embellishments.  i, for one, am looking forward to playing with it all!

i've already been busy, busy, busy creating some projects for the Crate Paper blog so be sure you check it out--you will gets loads of inspiration there, not just from me, but from all of the remarkable gals on the team! 
thanks for sharing my exciting news with me today--i've been dying to tell you for quite awhile now!
