Good morning!

Winter is coming to this area and Lisa created this amazing layout with our Oct. Petals kit, using nontraditional colors for a winter scene which makes the layout even more gorgeous!


She combined two Kaisercraft papers here Cottage Rose Weatherboards and Welcome) for her background and then layered on the gorgeous Blue Fern Studios chipboard (from the Elements Add On), lots of Prima Rossibelle flowers from the Floral Add On, and some 13 arts pink spray.




  She used a lot from the Main Kit, the Elements Add On, and the Floral Add On including, the Kaisercraft 'Cottage Rose' collection papers, Kaisercraft 'Cottage Rose' die cuts,Prima flowers, Prima Rossibelle Druzy Stones, the pretty white trim and the cool Tim Holtz distress crayon.

Christmas Cheer: our Nov. Scraps of Elegance kit

Our November Scraps of Elegance kit is here, just in time for holiday crafting!

It's called Christmas Cheer, and we've included 10 gorgeous patterned papers from Blue Fern Studios' Vintage Christmas 1 and 2 collections.  And we added a few other goodies, too, like a clear stamp and journaling cards from Prima's Sweet Peppermint collection, some Tim Holtz Christmas themed metal word bands, and the cutest little jingle bells by Darice...

These are the Patterned Papers you'll find in the kit:


And these are the Coordinating Papers for this month:




And our Floral Add On:











And our OTP Add On this month would work perfectly with the Creativity Add On!




We still have a few kits and add ons available in the store, and we're also having a Thanksgiving Weekend Sale right now (though it does exclude kits), so please stop by and pick yourself up a little holiday gift!

Shabby Chic lovliness from Nicole

Good morning!
Love is a beautiful thing to celebrate and the Scraps Of Elegance 'Petals' kit is perfect for recording those precious memories


Nicole created this very elegant page...


The floral add-on kit includes these new DIY white flowers from Petaloo that are perfect for coloring any colour you may want but she found them so beautiful in their natural white that she used them in their bare form.


She created a lovely tiled background with the Blue Fern Studios Quatrefoil Panel piece and the Rossibelle Druzy Stones.
