If you are looking for heritage, wedding or classic scrapbooking papers, you’ll love Sonoma. This new paper pack will be available to order on August 1st on my website. Sonoma will be joining seven other brand new My Reflections paper packs, as well as tons of new stamp sets and accessories!

I love the neutral color scheme and so my first item I wanted to create was a heritage page with old photos of my parents. The new cork alphabet is one of my favorite accessories, I’m finding myself reaching for it often.

Check out that huge honkin’ rhinestone brad. You get 12 for $5.95. Six each of two sizes. Serious bling. The hardest part is deciding if the recipient of this project is worthy of this gift of glamour, because I’m feeling the need to hoard these.

The beauty of a neutral color scheme is the ease of adding additional color. Sonoma looks stunning with oranges and blues, as well as the purple color family that is already included. Don’t be afraid to ramp it up, you can go pretty bold with your additional color.

Notice my additional colors, on the following pieces of artwork.

Large rhinestone buttons from Bling Assortment. Stars from Milepost shapes. Silver dots created using new Silver Glitter Gel. Seriously, you need this if you like bling. Three new colors coming: red, bronze, silver. At $2.75 per bottle, it’s a steal.

Handmade roses and ribbon flower. The new heavier weight patterned paper is printed on both sides, so the rose looks lovely from all angles.

All beautiful, but now I feel the need to own a sewing machine. I just love the extra touch that stitching gives your artwork....not to mention everything else.

Tresa, I was so disappointed when I found out that you were one of the Extravaganza demonstrators and that you weren't in the group I was in. I really wanted to meet you and tell you how much I enjoy looking at your creations, and watching your videos. Congratulations on the big Win, your album was great! Loved the interactive features.
