Me and Aaron are artists who like to share. We know how much happiness the creative process brings us personally and through teaching we see how easily this happiness can be spread around. But teaching is just a drop in the bucket...you can only reach so many people. So when the opportunity to design a scrapbooking collection came our way we jumped at the chance. A scrapbooking collection is a very useful cog in the wheel of spreading creativity around. It's so cool to see our designs going to good use. And it's an honor. Seriously, It's an absolute honor when we see something that we painted here in our humble home being used as the focal point of someone's very personal creative project. So...now that "The Sweet Life" collection is out there in the world, we wanted to show some fab examples of how it's being put to use, and also tell you about some places where you might find it for yourself!
We're totally loving these adorable mini albums by Melissa Phillips, using papers and journaling cards from the collection. The diagonal pink striped paper on the ice cream album is the flip side of our "Ballerina Cupcakes" paper. And the cakes you see on the ballerina themed album are from our paper titled "Hooray For Cake".
Again, this is one of our journaling cards being fabulously incorporated into a project. And those are a couple of our Washi Banner stickers affixed beneath the button.
Both of these adorable cards also by Melissa Phillips. This one has some of our "Bits & Pieces" paper in the background. I love the aqua vellum envelope, which is also from Melissa Frances, and the trim, ribbon, and tiny flower finish it off perfectly.
If you checked out the pics or were lucky enough to be in Anaheim that weekend, you may have seen this adorable little treat container in our booth at CHA. It's made using our papers ("Sprinkle Everyday" and "Mixed Media Doodles"), a journal card, and our Sweet Life Words stickers. It was made by Rachel McAffee.
And she also made these adorable party hats! Seen here: a Journaling Card, and the pink stripe paper is from our "Ballerina Cupcakes" paper.
The bunting banner on this hat is from our "Mixed Media Doodles" paper. The blue stripes are the flipside of our "Bits & Pieces" paper. And the "what a perfect day" banner is one of our Chipboard Accents.
Another Chipboard Accent, and our pink stripe paper again. Of all our papers I believe we'll personally use the pink stripes the most. I love the sequins on this one!
And yes...we have Treat Bags! Though Rachel took them to another level with the fab embellishments.
Here's another Treat Bag, and Rachel adorned it with one of my favorite journaling cards in our collection. It's our mascot bunny but rendered in basic black and white chalkboard style. I love the simplicity of the design.
We have been receiving lots of emails from you guys asking when we will have our collection in stock in our online shop. The answer is: Any day now! Our order is in, and we are awaiting it's arrival on our doorstep. So as soon as it is in we promise to let you know! We love that you guys are so excited! We will be shipping worldwide!
But...If you truly just can't wait another second...
The awesome Blue Moon Scrapbooking carries most of the collection! And they've got a great little video featuring the items they've got in-stock. What a great source for tons of amazing scrapbooking supplies! We loved meeting Scott from Blue Moon at CHA.
And for you paper loves in the San Diego, CA area...You can find "The Sweet Life" at the fabulous Paper Tales. Dining with all the Paper Tales gals was the highlight of our time at CHA. The realest, funniest, coolest, gang of gals you'll meet in the world of paper.
One of the funniest of the Paper Tales gals is our sweet and talented friend Karin. She will be teaching this adorable mini book using the collection at Paper Tales soon!
And we are loving seeing peeks of projects using The Sweet Life over on Instagram. Loving these pics of this mini album that @maidmarianmade is working on! We love how she colored her Allie & Amy and cake!
We are just so thrilled to see our designs in the hands of so many talented, creative, FUN people! We'd love to see pics of anything you've created using the collection! And we may share them here on the blog! So please feel free to send them to us or comment with a link to your blog post, or tag us on Instagram! @jennyeveryday
Thanks so much for popping in today! We hope that you are inspired by these projects! And we hope that you love "The Sweet Life". Have a great day friends!
Love from the NJ Shore,
