Tonight we have samples created by Sandy Nyhus. She used products from the Pastime line by Authentique. We sold out of this collection very quickly, thanks in large part to Sandy’s beautiful samples, but I just couldn’t allow these projects to remain unseen. I can still get the collection packs if these samples move you to create! Another amazing set, fantastic job Sandy!

Look at these adorable projects by design team member, Sonja Hoelzer, using the Reminisce collection, The Menagerie. Sonja doesn’t mind being challenged with her kit. She took the chipboard book we gave her and turned it into an awesome album of Fun Facts about the animals showcased in that collection. Fabulous job Sonja!

New My Favorite Things

Just in case you were wondering if we had anything new…it’s My Favorite Things! We have some restocks and some brand new stamps and dies! The popular Happy Birthday Circle Frame now has a sibling. The Thank You Circle Frame is now in stock and Happy Birthday will be back next week.

Here are more samples from the staffers. Melissa made these scrapbook pages with the Lakeside Campfire collection from Photoplay, while Michelle made the card.

The Paper Forest Staffers are on a creative kick again. This time we switched roles a little with the scrapbook page designed by Tami and the card created by Melissa. Of course Tami couldn’t pass a card making opportunity and decided to make a simple set of cards with just one sheet of journaling cards, some scrap cardstock and card bases. Six of them, with the envelopes fit nicely into our acetate card boxes. Wrap some ribbon around the box, add a tag and you have a fun and useful gift.
