Introducing the *NEW* eclectic Paperie!


A few weeks ago I got such an exciting email from Kim Schofield!  I have had the pleasure of meeting Kim two different times at Stamping Around events, and to hear from her a few weeks ago was such a thrill... she informed me that she had a little "secret" and was forming a new design team that she wanted ME to be a part of!  Well, I bombarded her with just a few questions, mostly because I just can't stand a good secret, and then quickly said AB-SO-FREAKIN'-LUTELY!!!  And the big secret was that she bought eclectic Paperie, and was getting set to relaunch the new online store and blog with a new team.  How could I say no?!?!

So to celebrate this grand occasion today (made even more grand by the fact that it's our fearless leaders birthday... Happy Birthday, Kim!) the new design team has some awesome creations to share with you today using oodles of fabulous product from the eP store!  Say hello to my new eP sisters...

Am I keeping good company, or what?

Also, be sure to read more below about some great specials that are going on in conjunction with the festivities!

 
So, for my card today I started out by using some beautiful new papers from the "Lively" collection from Authentique.  I love the gorgeous shades of pink, green and chocolate brown in these papers.  And I found that the new Summer Seasonal "Picked Raspberry" Distress ink was a great match to the shades of pink in these papers.  I even took my little Maya Road Canvas Butterfly and inked it up by pressing it into the ink pad, then I spritzed it with Perfect Pearls mixed with water for a little shimmer, and added the body to the butterfly with some pink Ranger Stickles.  And I added some "Berrylicious" Buttons Galore on the tab on the right side, tied off with some jute twine.



The layout for my card comes from the sketch for the guest designer contest this month at My Favorite Things, as well as the stamps and some of the dies I used in my design... Vertical Greetings Stamps and Die-Namics, Mini-Tabs Foursome and the Small Scalloped Border Die-Namics.

Here are a few of the great deals going on to celebration the new eP!
  • The first 25 orders receive a free sample paper pack of Carta Bella 12x12 papers.
  • Mystery Shopper - at midnight on 8/15 one shopper will be randomly drawn and will receive their entire order for free!
  • Order the Summer Seasonal Distress Ink set and receive all three coordinating reinkers for free (while supplies last).
  • 25% off on select items (these will be listed on the eP blog).
OK, so I know that's a lot of information today, but I hope you soaked it all in and will be heading over to the eP store for some serious shopping today!  Have fun, and happy stamping!
