Hey everyone! Gail Lindner here! I was so excited to play with the new Whimsical collection. The fun colors, variety of icons, and gorgeous patterns are all very much my style of paper crafting so I dove right in!
The stand-out product to me were the die cut flowers. I really wanted to feature them on a layout so I pulled all the softer colors of pink and purple from the pack and arranged them behind a die cut heart on my layout. I love the soft, delicate feel of this layout!
I’m super into traveller’s notebooks at the moment – I love capturing small stories and everyday moments in them. I’ve started a new notebook for my daughter and it was so easy to just add a border down the page using the 2×2 swatch book. So cute! The tassel paperclips are perfect for marking pages in your traveller’s notebooks also.
For my second traveller’s notebook spread, I wanted to use all the fun, creative die cuts! I simply layered and overlapped them the whole way down the notebook page and I love it!
I absolutely could not resist diving back into the die cuts to create a few fun cards. To add some interest to the cards, I cut some of the flowers and butterflies from the specialty paper to combine with the die cuts. And again, those tiny Thickers were absolutely perfect for the sentiments!
Thanks so much for having me and letting me share some creative ideas for the amazing Whimsical collection!
