Suzanne's Favorites from 2011!!!

I will think of 2011 as the year I realized some truths about my papercrafting!!!!  And I think it is all due to some of the fabulous products that came out last year!!

I realized I have a strong tendency toward graphic collections -- I always assumed I was a shabby chic crafter,  but now I think of myself more as vintage graphic!!!  I fell MADLY in love with Fancy Pants' It's the Little Things and Lily Bee's This and That!

"It's the Little Things" that matter! 
Layout of class Tonya Gibbs and I took with Marion Smith!

Hugs Tag
Lily Bee -- This and That,
Maya Road Chipboard Coaster Tag, Pink Paislee Chipboard Letters.
With these two collections, I became almost fearless mixing patterns and textures!!!!

I remembered that I love words.  Though I am not a consistent journaler, I have always loved using words as accents on pages.  I also remembered that I CAN stamp and love to heat emboss thanks to these FABULOUS Art Journaling Stamps from Maya Road!!!!
Maya Road -- Art Journaling Stamps
Late Winter Release 2011
Available at Flamingo Scraps
Tag using MR Art Journaling Stamps, Tim Holtz Alterations Dies,
Recollections paper, misc. clear embossing powder,
feathers, bling, and fabric strips

I love bright, vivid colors!!  I simply fell head over heels for the colors in Webster's Pages Sunday Picnic!!  Having this as a fave is kinda cheating as it came out at the tail end of the year.  I am just enchanted by the Perfect Accents and truthfully, I'm afraid this might be one of those things that is too beautiful to use!  Look for other styles of these to be in the store -- one set even has a FLAMINGO CAMEO!!!!

And lastly, my "why didn't I think of that" new product -- Cosmo Cricket's Glubers (which simply flew out the store and were impossible to find).   Another item that made me remember I love to make my own embellishments and the results are not too shabby...well, they are kinda shabby, but not in a bad way...OH!!!  You know what I mean!!!!

Add a sparkly center and you are good to go!
