Country Charm

Country Charm is a mix of Autumn, Fantasy, and nature all rolled into one package. 

And here are some pages that are sure to delight! I think these show the versatility of this kit...or at least the creativity of my team!
Starting with 2 gorgeous pages from Ange with a beautiful textured look, I love her stacking and elegant texturing.

Anne layered scenes and elements to create this fabulous fantasy! I love how it feels like you can stroll down that path!

Hayley's page has an ancient feel to it, very artsy and beautiful! The longer I look, the more I see!

In Gina's more traditional page, she uses several elements and clusters in a superb stack, giving more depth to the image and page. 

Cheryl created a fantasy page with the elf, I love how she used the soft greens and yellows together to give it an ethereal sense to the page.

Pat cleverly stretched the frame to use as a border. She created a fabulous cluster of Autumn with mushrooms and leaves, so lovely!

Jean created a mystical page which I think could be used as a preview for a new film!

Jeanette built a whimsical forest scene , I love how the owl is sitting on the he watching over them, or waiting for some sort of magical event to occur?

Trish created this peaceful scene of country charm, and when I first saw it I thought of the Wizard of Oz for some reason. There is an intriquing 'mood' to this page.

I love simple, so created this quick layer of cluster, paper, frame and scene to show how easy it is to create a page

...and here are a few more inspirations by my fabulous team!!

Just BEEing Me

Just BEEing Me is a wondrous kit of fantasy and nature.  My love of bees comes from my gardening, and the joy of nature in its raw form.  Adding a little fantasy, I enjoyed the results of this kit.  BEE people, flowers and leaves and natural bees...what better elements for a kit?

My gratitude toward my team for creating the most beautiful art from my kits, here are a few inspirational examples of what you can do with this kit.

From Pat comes this stunning page of bees!!  I love how she used the beehive and branch, giving this such a natural feel. A wonderful page!

And from Cheryl this amazing fantasy!  That beautiful moon is not in the kit, but adds such a mystical feel to the page. Fabulous page!

And now from me, I was so excited about this kit I actually created a page myself!

 Another  fabulous page from Pat.  I love the sweetness of this page!! The setting is wonderful, a storybook theme, so lovely!

Trish created a world of magic with this bee theme.  It reminds me how important our honey bees are so important to our survival and nature's beauty.

Gina decided to show the romantic side of fantasy with this gorgeous page of the prince and princess bees in their garden.  

And to show you a little whimsy, here is Pat's fun and whimsical page with the musical cricket as our main character in this story. So very cute!

 And back to romance, Cheryl created this stunning page ...a romantic design that reminds us how gorgeous nature truly is.

and a fun page of dreaming...

Pat designed this marvelous page that always brings a smile to my face, I love the magical  joy this brings me!!

Hayley created a gorgeous scene in the middle of the forest of the bees, butterflies and bugs, both beautiful and mythical!

An Element of Surprise

The idea for An Element of Surprise came about when I was simply playing around with blending colors, adding them to unusual objects...and a few things just came together. Thus the title of the kit, An Element of Surprise.  I think our best artwork comes out of us all when we are relaxed and not "trying". So here is a glimpse of surprises via my fabulous CT team:  Cheryl, Gina, Hayley, Jean, Jeannette, Trish ad Trish (Pat).  

This page by Jean tugged at my heartstrings... sometimes someone creates such a beautiful piece of art that causes a well of emotion to arise. This is one of those pages for me...

I love this stunning piece by Trish (Pat), so elegant and serene.

Using the puppy in the kit, Trish (Pat) created this playful page that is simply adorable.  She also used the "spillover" frame and mask which is delightful with the mushroom cluster!

Cheryl added a little whimsy with the silhouette (included), creating a fairytale story.I love the soft dreamlike feel to this page.

Continuing on the dream theme, I love this second page of Cheryl's where I imagine the little girl daydreaming about romping around with friends at the ocean.

I love this page with it's white space, leaving you wanting more. Hayley stretched the elements which gives the page a beautiful and different look.

To contrast that, Hayley created this gorgeous and magical moment ...

Trish created a beautiful stack and added a stamp effect to the silhouette, very clever! I love the mix of elements and how she arranged them!

A versatile kit, Jeannette created this fabulous page using the photo as the background. Now this looks like fun!!!

Gina added a beautiful effect to her image for this page, reminding me of  Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farms (yes that dated me!!). Gorgeous!
And a few more just to give you ideas...
