I was very excited to be able to join Vinnie Pearce this past month as a Guest Designer–working with her beautiful new collections and participating in some fun challenges that she has put together to celebrate the new year.
Not only can you save 30% off her new products, but she’s also put together a STUNNING Idea Book featuring the new collections that you can download for free! Just click on the image below to have a look!
Here’s a look at Vinnie’s NEW collections of 2014 and the pages I’ve created with them. Each of them were so inspiring and I had a blast working with them!
If you are one of Vinnie’s newsletter subscribers then you might recognize this lovely holiday collection, Cinnamon Christmas! But if you didn’t have the chance to snag this kit’s components for free last month, that’s okay because its finally available in her shop! I really loved this collection’s soft muted colors and I found it perfect for capturing the true spirit of Christmas in my page “Our Tradition.”
The Chinee II Collection exudes a beautiful girlish charm which turned out to be perfect for scrapbooking one of my favorite photos of my niece. The collage-inspired background I used reminded me of a quilt and coordinated perfectly with the colors in my photo. I only needed to add a few pops of dimension to call my page finished.
Art Propelled is filled with lots great brushes and artistic elements, not to mention a set of wonderfully textured patterned papers that brought just the right amount of artsy to my page, “The Window Into Our Hearts.”
And finally for my personal favorite, Journal Link. I am totally in love with the colors, patterns and quirky mix of elements that make up this collection! And the fact that it combines both contemporary trends and vintage charm makes it perfect for almost any page.
Up for a challenge?
There are also some fun challenges included in the latest edition of the Vinnie Pearce Downloads Lookbook that you can play along with! I had a ton of fun taking Challenge No. 2 in which I used my son’s artwork from school to make my own candy-cane patterned paper for this page about my son’s memorable mispronunciation of these festive treats.
Candy Cans? by Amy Kingsford | Supplies: Vinnie Pearce: I Know a Girl, Art Propelled, Pieces of Me IV; Robyn Meierotto: In Stitches – Basic Neutrals; Valorie Wibbens: Twinkle.
