Exciting news & a GIVEAWAY!!!

(Make sure you read this entire post because there's a giveaway at the end!)

Have you seen the news over at Avery Elle?

Avery Elle has just launched its own line of 6x6 patterned paper pads which coordinate with their amazing ink pads!   They're designed to be the classics.  The pieces of paper that you can't get enough of.  Yay for an entire pad of basics.  So far, there's two collections - here's hoping for more!

The colors in The Brights Collection paper pads are custom made to coordinate with  Aquamarine, Fizz, Mimosa and Raspberry Pigment Ink Pads. 

The colors used in The Sorbet Collection paper pads are custom made to coordinate with the Lemon Grass, Mint To Be, Pixie and Sea Glass Pigment Ink Pads.
I used The Sorbet Collection papers on this card. 
I stamped the images in Red & Goldie and colored them in with my Prismacolors and Gamsol.  The white panel is die cut using the new Dotted dies.  I can't tell you how much I loved being able to stamp that Lemon Grass color and being able to pull the perfect patterned paper color to coordinate. 
I love this paper so much that I've already used a ton of it and need to order more.  So, to share in the fun and get the word out about this amazing paper, I would like to offer one Brights Collection 6x6 pad and one Sorbet Collection 6x6 pad to one lucky commenter.

Go to Gal Designer Challenge: Fancy Pants

Hip hip hooray!  Well, it's not quite the last Wednesday of the month but June got a little busy so we pushed it out - you know what that means?  It means it's time for a Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking magazine Go-to Gal Designer Challenge and this month it's all about Fancy Pants Designs!

I have to admit I'm pretty excited to have a chance to focus on Fancy Pants!  I've played a lot with their goodies lately - I love them so much. 

For today, I played with the Burlap & Bouquets collection to come up with this card.  
LOVE all these fabulous patterned papers and ephemera so much.  I wish I had more time but work has had me SLAMMED. 

Now it's off to see what the other Go-to Gals have cooked up with Fancy Pants Designs

Word dies have got to be one of my favorite products available for paper crafting right now.  They just make cards so easy!
I used the new, awesome Lil' Inker Designs Smile die on this card with a bunch of fun patterned paper.  I used one of the Lil' Inker Designs Stitched Rectangles to give my tipped layer a stitched edge. 

One more card for you! :)  
Lots of die cuts on this card.  Super fun.
