Crate Paper On Trend

My box of goodies arrived from Crate the other day, and OH MY, I'm in heaven. Seriously. The new lines are so pretty. Such great colors and patterns. I really liked them online, but in person they are even better. I decided to make a set of cards using On Trend right away!

 I decided to do a cream colored background, add a doily and take it from there. I really like how these turned out.
 This first card uses a strip of 6 by 6 paper and a border sticker as it's base. I added the chipboard oval and adhered the sticker over it with some foam adhesive.
 I topped it with the paper flower topped with a brad. For the sentiment, I simply layered a sticker over the wood veneer.

This next card is rather simple, but I love it. I layered a chipboard butterfly over the paper/doily combo.

 Then, I adhered a bit of the vellum banner across the butterfly. The banners are so much fun and I can't wait to use one on a layout!
 My last card was another simple one to create. I started with the patterned paper and then adhered the doily over it.
Finally, I topped it with two pieces of chipboard. Super simple!

Can you see why I'm loving this line? The colors are so fun!

Speaking of fun, Webster's is releasing their mid-season collection and it's awesome.

I'll be sharing more about this soon, but I KNOW you're going to love it!!!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!
