 Have you seen the "Hello Cupcake" collection from Imaginisce?  It features some really cute paper with varnish accents.  Cat made these really wonderful layouts of her grandson's birthday using a sketch from Sketch Inspiration. 

 Carta Bella is a new sister company of Echo Park.  Where Echo Park paper is smooth, the paper by Carta Bella is textured.  The designs are very different from those of Echo Park.  Cat has made some beautiful pages featuring their very first release, Beautiful Moments.  As you can see, this line of paper lends itself nicely to heritage pages, although it would also work beautifully with some nature photos as well as other topics. 
These pages feature a green patterned paper background.  The next pages are from the same line of papers but look totally different.  Those roses are just gorgeous.  Cat "fussy cut" them and popped them up with foam tape.  I love how these pages all turned out.  So very pretty.
Valerie created some really cute layouts with the latest Bella Blvd. collection and some adorable photos of "Peanut".  Absolutely adorable!
This cute paper is available at the store as well as all of the papers featured in these wonderful layouts by Cat and Valerie.  They both used sketches by Sketch Inspiration for all of these layouts and gave us all some fabulous inspiration. 

While they have been busily creating these layouts featuring some of the latest arrivals in the store, Cat has been busily looking over all of the new releases by the companies for the CHA show.  I've been scouring the internet for sneak peeks and WOW--she has her work cut out for her deciding which of the new product to bring in to tempt us.  The store isn't big enough to hold everything that is released, so she has to try to figure out what we won't be able to resist.  What a chore.  I wouldn't do very good at that since I would be tempted to only buy what I like.  Everyone who likes pink and frou frou stuff would be out of luck.  Good thing Cat is able to put her own preferences aside and purchases things for ALL of her customers.  There is lots of beautiful product being released and I know she will bring in what she believes to be the cream of the crop for us.

Have a terrific Tuesday and be sure to check back tomorrow to find out why Wednesdays are now WOW Wednesdays.  No more hump day for us....it's a WOW day!


  1. Looking forward to finding out about WOW Wednesday! Love all these layouts! Beautiful Cat & Valerie!
