“Sweet Maeve”, by Jamie Harder.
I am just smitten with these new collections - I love them all so much that I put a bit of all three on my layout! I just love photographing my niece. She is such a doll!

"My Gift", by Leanne Allinson.
My “What's New Wednesday” layout has Mother's Day in mind but I also wanted to create with the gorgeous new Molly collection. For me the two, possibly unrelated subjects, could have been very challenging, but Molly is so versatile that my layout came together very quickly! My daughter was born one week before Mother's Day and she was indeed my very first Mother's Day gift. I wanted to document this simple fact (*ahem, 14 years later) even though I am well aware of when she celebrates her special day! To create the hand stitched heart, I simple traced around the large heart-shape die cut from the Molly Paper Pieces in pencil, pierced even holes along the line and then used yellow embroidery floss. The hand stitching is then highlighted with fussy cut flowers from Sparkle & Shine. I finished off my layout with three of the 2" squares found in the Molly Candid Cards pack. They each have a white back ground to soften the busy Peace patterned paper and have been placed in a visual triangle to help draw the eye across the page.

“Hello Summer” card, by Kathy Martin.
I have a new favorite patterned paper, Pocket full of Posies, both sides being equally awesome! I love the black background that makes the posies pop and I am smitten over the happy yellow ‘hello’ text! I combined these two patterns for this whimsical summery bicycle card. This is one of those papers I’ll use over and over and over again!

“Be Happy” card, by Kathy Martin.
Scattered Sprinkles makes me happy! This collections reminds me of celebrations, confetti and yummy gooey cupcakes! For this card I layered on the sprinkles by creating die cutting pennants with several of the colors in the line and topping them with a ‘happy’ little phrase.
