I {love} me some new TCD!

Teresa Collins Designs, that is! I was lucky enough to win all four of her new collections for taking part in a raffle for Haiti she had on her blog. How cool is that? I would have bought them all anyway so winning them was sweet. I was planning on spending the rest of February cleaning and organizing closets, hahahahah! I was so inspired by all of my new stuff and my Shimmerz Vibez, I haven't left my studio much the past week! :) It feels so great to be back on a roll creating again. It makes me SO happy!


Here are some projects that I created yesterday...
The first is a layout I did for my friend Paige. She is a fabulous photographer and also the daughter of one of my bestest friends in the world, Kelly. Paige got married a little over a year ago in Chicago. The wedding was amazing and so much fun! She had some really cool pictures taken by her dear friend Erin (also a fabulous photographer!) and she sent them to me to create with! I've only just begun to create with these pictures and the beautiful new paper lines from TCD. I mixed the Mr & Mrs and Welcome Home lines. The great thing about these lines is that they are all black, white and cream. You can add colors that compliment your photos and projects. I used the new Vibez color called Rolling in The Hay. It is a soft yellowish gold and so perfect for these photos! I also used some Tuscan Sun Spritz and some Coal Shimmerz paint (on the chipboard letter W).


Here are a couple of close ups...


On this next project I also used the Rolling in the Hay Vibez and the Tuscan Sun Spritz. The frame looks so shimmery in person. The ribbon was off white but I just sprayed a little Vibez and got the perfect golden yellow color I was aiming for. The background is actually one of two flocked, black on black chipboard covers for a mini album but I was thinking "outside of the book" and thought it would make a great wall hanging.





I have more creations to share with you tomorrow and a new Shimmerz Ed video as well so check back in!
Blessings and peace,
~Lori
