XOXO is here!

Hello! Happy Friday! 

I just got a beautiful box of XOXO goodness in the mail yesterday, so I snapped a few shots of the collection to share with you! It turned out exactly how I had imagined-- I'm in love with the color palette of this line!

Here's a peek at the entire collection, all piled together:

21 8x8 patterned papers (Melissa still has the 12x12 size in the works for the future!)

rose gold transparencies and vellum:

close-up of the rose gold transparency. It's gorgeous in person. 

printed transparencies and vellum:

four different sized paper packs:

one of my favorite items in this collection-- mini alphabet block stickers (a new font this time, too!) and regular alpha stickers:

flair buttons and sequins:



and cut-aparts (some of which are available as die-cuts if you don't want to cut them out yourself):

I'm SO excited to play with this collection! It's my favorite collection I've designed yet. :) What do you have your eye on?

Good Stuff {pls}

I'm up on the Pretty Little Studio blog today sharing another project that I created with my Feels Like Fall collection. I am typing this earlier in the week and I am SO EXCITED because on the day that this posts, I SHOULD be getting my box of my Valentine's Day collection in the mail!!! Those days are my favorite days. I've been waiting anxiously to see this collection in person for months now. I hope it has turned out like I'm wanting it to. If it has, the XOXO collection will probably be my favorite line that I have designed so far. the colors are totally swoon-worthy and I love all of the puns and love-y dove-y sayings I got to put in this collection. But anyways. Enough on that (I'll try to share photos soon!).

I am still loving the tiny patterns of the 2x2 swatch paper pack from PLS. They can be stretched and used in SO many different ways! Here's how I used them on a layout, punched into lots of 1" squares!

I just wrote out a whole blog post for the Pretty Little Studio blog, so if you want to read more about this page, click HERE. :)

Hello Card {pls}

Today I'm up on the Pretty Little Studio blog with a new card that I created using my Feels Like Fall collection. This collection was releases a little late in the fall season, so I've been challenging myself to use it for everyday type projects. And it's been working wonderfully! 

To me, you wouldn't even know I used a fall themed collection on this card unless I told you. ;)

I have always loved the motif of hearts, and the heart punch is my most-used punch in my stash. It's a cheap one from Hobby Lobby, but to me it's the perfect size and shape. I punched lots of hearts from the little 2x2 patterns in the swatch pack. The patterns are so tiny and perfect in the swatch pack-- it's one of my new favorite items in the Pretty Little Studio shop. I think the size of the patterns is perfect for cards. <3
