I have a couple of new articles up at Fiskars that I haven't had a chance to share here yet. . .
I love how these pillows turned out! They are photos printed on fabric and then are made into pillows. They were so easy and with the holidays coming up, could be great gifts to make. To add a fun touch, I enlisted Emma's help. This set was given to my daughter Anna who is away at college to give her dorm a little touch of home. You can find out more about this project on Fiskar's site: Easy Photo Decor Pillows.
This mini book is another project I did for Fiskars. I wanted a book that would be simple to keep up and would give me space to record things about each school year along with a school photo. Each year all I need to add is a photo and a few quick notes. I love the simplicity of it and how it helps me avoid the "mom guilt" of being behind and forgetting little details about the school years. You can find this book and more details about it on the Fiskars site: School Memories Mini Book.
By the way, that book was made from scratch using chipboard and is filled with papers, stickers, and embellishments from the BasicGrey Oxford collection.
Speaking of BasicGrey, I can finally share with you today that I have been selected as a member of their new, first ever design team! I will be a part of the Altered Arts Team! You can see a list of the whole team on the BasicGrey blog.
If you have followed me for a while, you might be a little confused by this announcement, thinking that I was already a design team member for them. They actually didn't have a design team before, but rather had a group of people as contract designers that have done show samples and other projects for them as needed. I have been really blessed to have been in that role for a little over 5 years with them. With today's announcement they now have an official design team, which I am thrilled to be a part of. I you have enjoyed what I have made and shared with you in the past featuring BasicGrey products, you will be happy to know that nothing will change, except for the frequency of the projects. You will be seeing a lot more BasicGrey goodness here!
And just for fun because you know I like to have tons of photos in every post, I want to share my all time favorite BasicGrey show sample featuring my all time favorite BasicGrey collection Curio.
