Introducing Guide Lines Paper Collection

By June 13, 2008Just Cards

I am thrilled to be able to introduce the Guide Lines Paper Collection to you today!  (Be sure to click the photo to enlarge and take in all the details!)  The rich purple hues are reminiscent of Spain and the hand-painted tiles found there.  And of course the designs themselves are taken right from the coordinating Guide Lines background set!  As an extra special touch this month we decided to print this particular collection on rich cream paper, similar in color to the Vintage Cream cardstock that we now carry.  The end result is a luxurious, rich paper that will rapidly become one of your favorites!  With color pulled from both Plum Pudding & Lavender Moon, you will find dozen of design possibilities.


Here is a quick little card I put together using both the Guide Lines Paper Collection & Candice’s all-new Birds of a Feather set.  I combined two of my favorite patterns from the collection to create my background.  A little stitching detail was added as well.  The center strip is made from Lavender Moon cardstock, featuring a scored accent line at the top and bottom that I did with my Scor-Pal.  I trimmed a piece of the striped paper to fit in between the two score lines.  I finished the strip by adding a little stitching too.  I just love the three of these particular patterns together!  Such a great combination!  I utilized the 6×6 card makers scale for this particular project.  Don’t forget that it is also available in 12×12, which features the same pattern only twice as large in scale!  That really increases your options!


I really adore the little chick in this stamp set!  Such a cutie!  And the sentiment is perfect for so many occasions!  To create this little accent detail, I formed a loop with my stitched ribbon and fastened it in place with a plum brad & polka dot flower.  Notice that I allowed the loop to extend over the edge of the card to help break up the "square-ness" of it.  The opposite end of the ribbon that runs under the chick accent is trimmed in a "v" for a special touch.  I love how quickly this card came together.  Just by mixing & matching the different birds & sentiments with the same layout I could have dozens of cards made in no time for my stash!  I hope you enjoyed this little peek at the new patterned paper for June.  I’ll be back a little later today with a few more projects using some of the other sets waiting to be released tonight!  Thanks for stopping by!
