Crate Paper: Open Book

This is a double post day. See my Mama Elephant post HERE.

The new Maggie Holmes collection, Open Book, is full of so many inspiring moments. From great colors to glitter, flowers to thoughtful sentiments, there is something that draws you in and invites you to create. For hours. 


When I first sat down with this collection I created four projects. Let's take a look!


First I started with the large hello sentiment and layered it with patterned papers, paper embellishments, tags and a label. 


The soft black in this collection is such a great balance for all of the color.


Next, I embellished a simple box with a buildable flower, tag and die cut shapes. 


The sides gave me a chance to add some fun polka dot patterned paper that adds to the whimsy of this collection.


There are so many fun book references in this collection. Perfect for scrapbooking every day life but also great for making a bookmark or two!


I cut out patterned paper to start my bookmark, then layered a fun sentiment, vellum pieces and die cut pieces.


My final project was another card. I couldn't wait to use the gold stickers! Little hints of gold are found throughout the collection and add perfect amounts of shine. 



For this card I layered a frame, the gold sticker, die cut shapes and a vellum sentiment. All on top of a great neutral patterned paper.

This collection is full of hidden gems just wanting to discover! I hope you enjoyed seeing some of them today. Thanks for joining me!
