More "WOW" goodness to share

Today over at the WOW blog  my team's post is up. We have two layouts, a canvas and a card to share with you. Be sure to hop over there next to see some more amazing projects using WOW powders and stamps. For now I'd like to share my project with you.

I created a layout title "Us 3 girls" using a mixture of WOW Silver regular and Clear Regular powder and two stamp sets: Love Beyond Measure and Simply Amazing. I mixed the two powders together to give a more subtle shimmer to my layout and I just love the results!I used so many things that I love on this layout: vintage dress patterns, washi tape, some of my Studio Calico "City of Lights" kit. This kit included many of my favorites: Crate Paper, Freckled Fawn and  Bella BLVD.,
In the image below I embossed a section of pink patterned paper using a mixture of two powders, then used two different punches to create the butterflies. The frame in the photo below and the double hearts on the tag in the last image were stamped, embossed, hand cut out, then added to the layout. I also embossed the edges of my doilies for a bit of added shimmer and sparkle.
I also used an embossing pen and filled in the die cut "LOVE" on the tag with the same combination of powders. I love the delicate softness that it added.

Thank you so much for stopping by today. I appreciate you comments and feedback. Till next time...

WOW embossing powder project

Hi there! I'm back today to share a project with you that I created for WOW Embossing Powders. For this layout I used WOW Clear and Silver embossing powder and WOW's Gratitude stamp set. 
I embossed an entire corner of my patterned paper with the clear embossing powder to add a bit of shine, then I punched out the hearts that you see beside the photo and all the little ones that fill the jar. I stamped and embossed the jar with the silver powder as well as the strip of hearts below the photo.
Thank you for stopping by! For more beautiful projects and inspiration, stop by the WOW blog for the rest of my team's post (The Powder Pixies) today.

CHA hilights

My trek to CHA began much too early in the morning. lol My flight for Anaheim left at 6:35 am. It was necessary to leave early so we could get a jump start on set up. At least it was a beautiful flight. lol
Here we are after arriving and checking into our hotel. We went straight over to the convention center to start set up!

This is me with the darling Heidi Grace Kress. She is such a sweet person and was debuting her new product line, "Clever Handmade" at the show. I was honored to be able to create 3 layouts using her new lines that were featured in her booth. I was majorly excited about that!!!
I stopped by the American Crafts booth to take a peek at Amy Tan and Liz Kartchner's new lines. Suffice it to say it seems as though I am in love with just about anything these ladies come up with.I was super excited to get to meet David Tutera. He has an awesome show called "My Fair Wedding" that makes a brides dream wedding come true. He is genuinely a sweet man and I am glad that I got the chance to meet him at CHA. It was definitely a highlight for me.
I wish I had more pictures to share, but honestly, I was so busy working the WOW booth that I hardly had anytime wo walk the floor.
And after 6 days in Anaheim working the show and away from my family, this was such a welcome site.
Thanks so much for stopping by, I truly appreciate it.

Back from CHA

Hey, it's me! Finally coming up for air after all the CHA madness. I had such a great time and was so inspired by all the beautiful new products and talented friends that I saw. I'd like to share how I used the embossing powders to help decorate the fabulous WOW booth. My portion of the display was intended to display the "Candy Counter" collection and I created this inspiration board as my inspiration.
This is how my display all came together.

The WOW colors are so vibrant and highly pigmented. These were a few of the fun little additions to my display.See how vibrant the colors pop even on darker cardstock? I had such a good time working the booth and seeing lots of friends at CHA. I will make another post with more pics of some of the highlights.

Hope you enjoyed the little peak of CHA and thanks for stopping by.Please leave me a comment as I LOVE to read and hear what you think.
