Croppin Paradise DT is Heating up This Summer!

Hello Croppers!
Well, as usual, the Design Team at Croppin Paradise has been heating things up in the gallery and on the forums! Come join us for a nice chat, a glass of lemonade and a chance to win some prizes! (Check out the June monthly challenge and the weekly challenges!)

For June, the team has picked the hottest new products to help you heat up your summer scrapping! I am so excited to show you their work!

Summer is full of wild times and fun! Have you seen the new Anna Griffin Peyton Collection? It is fun and funky and perfect for those bold girlie summer pages!

Andrea has created a mini books about friends and Lisa created a page about her daughter's fabulous birthday party!

Feeling think going to the Carribean? (only if it is in your own mind?) - Try the new Bo Bunny Calypso Collection! It is perfect for those exotic vacations, backyard barbeques and even an everyday moment like Maegan captured here:

Think the summer fun has ended?

Not a chance at the Croppin Paradise store! - Trish and Kathy created projects using the bright, bold colors and patterns of the Little Yellow Bicycle Zinnia to create these fun projects:

So, whether you are taking an exotic vacation or just chillin at home scrapping the everday moments of your life, the Croppin Paradise store has the perfect summer time products to get the job done!

Andrea's Design Tip for Week of 6/8/09

Alrighty . . . girls . . . sorry for the delay . . . I was up at a condo in the woods scrapping with my friends this weekend on Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday so I'm just now posting the Design Tip for this week. Well, I don't know about you but I love to make my own embellishments. This was one thought that I had in ordering my supplies for the next two months for my DT assignments. I wanted to be able to make my own embellishments to show you all that you don't need to order everything in order to make great layouts (although ordering the whole kit and kaboodle is so much more fun!!).

One problem with this is that I often run out of ideas in creating my own embellishments . . . here are some excellent ideas for you to make a crocheted flower, embellishment frames, faux wood frames, 3D glitter stickers, custom ghost shapes, glittered borders, and pleated flowers!


Let me know which one you're planning on making and your thoughts on making your own embellishments!!
