August 2016 - Sunflowers

Tricia Morris

Wisconsin is the proud home of the Pope Farm Conservancy, a 9-acre field with over half a million sunflowers in bloom right about . . . now. They even post a daily sunflower update when the blossoms are scheduled to open. We're thrilled to ship you a version of Wisconsin sunshine with the debut of our beautiful Sunflowers collection!

A NOTE FROM TRICIA

Heads up about the gorgeous Italian-made metallic gold paper featured in this month's collection. A combination of local warm temperatures and high humidity prevented the ink from drying in a timely fashion. To expedite kit assembly, a white slip sheet was added between each piece of the 12x12 Gold Print. Simply discard the sheet when you're ready to use the papers.

Our staff is busy checking off our list of last-minute preparations for the August Club Scrap Retreat commencing in just three days! We are looking forward to the fun and friendship that blossoms when we're together face to face. We wish safe travels to those who will be making the journey to Wisconsin for this unforgettable event.

WHAT'S AHEAD?

If you've known staff member Karen Wyngaard for any length of time, you know that she's an avid gardener. As the kitchen counters at Club Scrap start to be filled with excess produce from her bounty, we will celebrate with our September collection, Garden Shed. The soft, fresh color palette will be just right for the sketched art style we've selected. You're going to dig it!

KIT AND COLOR DETAILS

If you'd like to create custom titles and journaling to coordinate with your Sunflowers kit, download the following fonts: Malam and Bringshoot.

Rubber stampers, check your inventory for CS® Earth, Amethyst, Tangerine, Moss, White Pigment and India Black inks to match with the paper collection.

DELUXE LAYOUTS

We love the combination of the checkerboard pattern, hand-colored sunflowers, and the rich color palette. I'll share details about each pair of layouts in tomorrow's blog, so come back for a closer look!
