CHA... yes those little letters were a part of my life for the first time ever this year thanks to Simple Stories! To say it was a serious spin out is an understatement! How I would have loved to have been able to experience it in person, but thanks to Instagram, I was living vicariously through all those lucky people seeing all that crafty amazingness in the flesh!
I had six layouts on display at the show. I'm sure you will agree that the stand looked brilliant and the incredible new collections just blew everyone away! Look out for them in the Sassy Scrappers store very soon.

This was one of my pages for the show. I've used the exquisite 'I Am' collection which is all about scrapping the very important, and yet often neglected people in our lives... ourselves!!
The sentiments in this line really resonate with me and the lush gold adds such a luxurient touch. You will adore it.
The middle panel has been created with complimentary colours pulled out of the collection... 6x6 papers, Sn@p cards, washi paper and ephemera. The have been machine stitched together and used as a backing for my photo and title.
The photo is actually of some parsley flowers from my modest herb garden. I had let them bolt a bit over the holidays. The minute flowers could have been easily overlooked, but they were so so beautiful. Each a tiny, perfect specimen. The 4x6 Sn@p card was the perfect fit for this picture. We need to make more time to stop and smell the roses.
Some clever additions to the new collections are the awesome 'New Bradz' which have no pesky bit poking out of the back as well as these gorgeous decorative clips (shown below). The nice thing about these is that the sewing machine can stitch through them, so you can secure bits if you like. Other major highlights for me were the new chipboard frames (squeal!) the gold and silver foil accents on the new collections and the awesome interactive elements in the 'I Am' collection.
I Am, Say Cheese II, Enchanted and lots more gorgeous stuff will be shipping to retailers from next month. Keep your eye out!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
