As I'm sure you've noticed, there is just a flood of new goodies for all of the papercrafting world to drool over these days. I just love the post-CHA rush!
Yesterday, I was working away at Scrapbook League at Scrappy Chic, and I tried a product that, if I'm not mistaken, is really new -- something I hadn't seen before. Take a look:
Foldies! Foldies are new from Sassafras -- these are from the delightful Sweetly Smitten line -- and they're reminiscent of the punch-out books I had as a kid. I popped out a little cluster of flowers from a 12x12 sheet (I think there's 4 or 5 total), folded on the little tabs, and then stuck my newly-dimensional embellishment right onto this layout of my sweet Dexter basking in the sun. It was super-easy to add dimension to a relatively flat layout, and I love that big ol' yellow flower in the middle! (By the way, I totally used a great tutorial from Meg to create those photo strips -- go check it out if you'd like to make some for yourself...thanks, Meg!)
I made a card, too:
It's a little easier to see here: the cluster started out flat, and I folded the little tabs under the leaves and the two smaller flower groups, then adhered it to the card with various heights of dimensional adhesive, curving it to fit around the corner of the card. Popped on a quick sentiment with some Echo Park letter stickers and called it good! (Oh, and the background paper is stamped with the envelope pattern stamp from Hero Arts -- also new, and definitely versatile!)
So, has anyone else seen or tried these? I'm usually kinda useless when it comes to flowery embellishments, but these just seem fun :)
Speaking of fun, I'm off to finish a movie and play with my newly-assembled Counterfeit kit -- I'll show that one off tomorrow!
Happy Sunday :)
