Gossamer Blue Love

When the new collection by Gossamer Blue arrived on my doorstep, I immediately fell in love with the colour combination and the patterns of the Gramercy Road, so much so that if I could by clothing with the same colours and patterns I would.

Because I was so inspired by the products, this layout came together in under 90 minutes, which for me is almost record time for such a detailed layout, stitching included.  

I am such a sucker for labels, I really like using them to help layer my elements, and every once in a while, I'll actually use them for writing on.  The pre-typed journaling strip that came in the ephemera package was perfect.  In fact that little package is loaded with 50 different pre-cut shapes and phrases.  A great deal for a chronic embellisher like myself.

The wood veneer pieces like this one here are from the On My Desk collection. There were just too awesome to pass up.  From the fun, funky shapes, to the words in multiple sizes this is a great set.

That cluster of ephemera pieces makes me happy.  Love the chartreuse with the the soft pink, and blue. The little pre-typed label is another one from the ephemera package.  With so many fun details all I needed, was to add 2 little strips of typed journaling, and voilĂ , done.  I love when a layout comes together that quickly.  All thanks to new product that inspired my creative senses, and the fun of wearing my beloved cowboy boots that morning.
