Hey everyone! Happy Thursday!! I hope your week is going well. Today we are taking a look at the early release of products from the upcoming January-June Mini Catalog, the Eden’s Garden Suite. This is such a lovely suite!! Were you able to watch my Facebook Live this morning? If not, you can watch the replay over on my YouTube channel here. While you’re there, I would love it if you could give my video a thumbs up and if you’re not a subscriber yet, I would be honored if you subscribed today. Here’s a look at the suite of product, Item 16089:

I wanted to show a layout I created using the suite. When I saw the color palette, I knew it would be perfect for a picture from my oldest daughter’s wedding. I typically don’t scrap pages without photos as it really is challenging for me, but I did it anyway. 🙂 She was married in 2006 so you’d think I’d have a photo handy, but of course not! But this way, I’ll be able to pick the perfect picture!

Here are the measurements:

  • Evening Evergreen 12″ x 12″ cardstock
  • Ever Eden Specialty DSP cut at 11 3/4″ x 11 3/4″ and 5 3/4″ x 7 3/4″
  • Ever Eden Cotton Paper cut at 5 1/4″ x 7 1/4″

This is a pretty basic layout, but I think for a wedding photo, you don’t need a lot of “stuff” on the page. The photo mat layers are attached with Stampin’ Seal+. I did stamp the cotton paper in Soft Succulent for a tonoe on tone look. I stamped it with the thought it would peek over the photo once it’s added. The gold and ribbon trim across the front are not glued down in the center so that I can just slip my photo underneath when I add it. When I die cut the sentiment label, I die cut a piece of the Brushed Metallic paper and then a scrap of Basic White. I added Stampin’ Seal to the white and attached it to the base and then added the gold layer with some Liquid Glue by fitting all of the berries right into the notches on the white. I plan on using my Evening Evergreen Stampin’ Write Marker to add the title later.

Now for the card. I actually created this sample when we were first able to pre-order this suite. The gems weren’t available at launch, so I used some gold Metallic Pearls and they worked beautifully!

Here are the measurements:

  • Card base in Evening Evergreen cardstock cut at 5 1/2″ x 7″, scored at 4 1/4″
  • Ever Eden Specialty DSP cut at 2 1/2″ x 5 1/4″ and 1″ x 5 1/4″
  • Basic White cardstock cut at 4″ x 5 1/4″

In today’s video I actually used Soft Succulent cardstock for the base and switched the papers. Please be sure to leave a comment to let me know which color combo you like best!

I started with my card base. I had seen this cut before and wanted it give it a try. It kind of has the look of a favorite fun fold I like to do, without the swing arm. Once I attached the DSP to the front, I die cut a scrap of Basic White for my circle. I stamped the large flower image in Soft Succulent ink and attached it to the Evening Evergreen circle. I die cut a scrap of the Brushed Metallic paper in the lighter gold with the border die. I attached it with some Stampin’ Seal. In in video I used Mini Glue Dots – much cleaner! I added the circle with dimensionals. I stamped my sentiment on the die cut label in Evening Evergreen ink and added it with dimensionals below the circle. Be sure to place the dimensionals just on the left side since it’s a smaller front. I added the foil die cut flower with a couple of Mini Glue Dots and sprinkled on some of the pearls. In the video I used the gems from the suite. They definitely give it a different look!

For the inside, I stamped the sentiment in Evening Evergreen ink, added the strip of DSP at the right and then attached it all to the inside of the card.

And don’t forget to decorate your envelope!

Isn’t that a beautiful suite of products? Just so elegant!! Here’s a look at both cards so that you can see the difference in the two color combos.

Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope you have a chance to get inky today!
