I've got some exciting news to share with you today. About two weeks ago I received an e-mail from Emma from the French scrapbooking brand 4heures37 inviting me to join her design team. I came across 4heures37 for the first time about 4 months ago. I visited a blog of a French scrapbooker - don't remember whose blog it was - and really liked the designs from 4heures37. As far as I know the paper collections are not available in the Netherlands yet, but hopefully that will change soon. Last Friday I received a box with papers and other goodies from Emma and I couldn't wait to get started on a few cards. My main focus will be cards, but I may also show a layout every now and then.
The first card is my favorite of the three cards I made this weekend. For this card I used the 9, Allée des ateliers collection. 12 sheets per collection and all sheets are double sided so that means 24 (!) different designs. I always love to mix various designs on one card. I really have a hard time using only one or two patterned paper sheets. The doily used on the card is from Martha Stewart and is available at Paper & Pictures.
And a close-up...

And another card with the 9, Allée des ateliers collection. I really love this collection. The papers on this card match really well with Papertrey Ink's Scarlet Jewel color. I always have a hard time using that color, but not this time.

For the last card I used the newest collection 1, passage Philéas. This collection was released early November. It's not only great for travel layouts and albums, but also for masculine cards.
