"Love the Pretty Pale 12x12 paper collection with those beautifully added foil accents. I created this Round Gift Box featuring this stunning collection combined with the cute Julie Nutting doll stamp Marisol. I cut the box and ballroom slippers using my Silhouette and assembled accordingly. (box - design ID 26128 and ballroom slippers design ID 220545). I added lots of die cut elements, pretty bows (I used a die for the bows but you can find a template on Pinterest here) and adorned the the rest of the box with beautiful Prima flowers, ephemera, metal chain. string, lace, decorative tape and say it in crystals." - Tanya

“I love the Pretty Pale collection. The soft earthy tones are perfect for sepia photos. This time, I chose to go with a picture of my son and. I created a mixed media background using modeling paste and pouring some Mini Art Stones on the paste while it was still wet. I like the texture it created. Paints, watercolor and mist complete the background. The rest of the layout came up pretty quickly: the flowers in that collection are outstanding!” ~ Karine

Anita used the Poetic Rose collection to create this STUNNING layout featuring her sweet kitty! Anita’s layouts always have special details, like the heart with butterflies cut out of it. The stitching sets it off beautifully!

'Spring Farmhouse is such a beautiful collection to celebrate families and home. I used the natural colour palette of the collection with the creams and touches of grey. I love the background paper, it has such a vintage, but sweet, look about it.' ~ Stacey

“This collection reminds me of fantastic and dreamlike gardens. I wanted to transmit this feeling in a project, so I created this “Secret Midnight Garden” frame using the amazing Midnight Garden collection. I used a frame as a background. I fussy-cut a lot of beautiful flowers and leaves and mixed them with amazing Finnabair’s products. “ ~ Nathalie

If you had to choose a favorite which line speaks to you? Pretty Pale is so soft and delightful while Poetic Rose is pretty and feminine. Spring Farmhouse is just gorgeous with it’s beautiful trendy touches, and Midnight Garden is deep and dramatic! (I really don’t think I can pick a favorite, can you?)
