Welcome to the Scarlet Lime Newsletter

 

Okay so it's ALMOST February.. but hey! January is not over yet! LOL.. so let's get a newsletter in here with some great inspiration and some FUN giveaways! Plus of course.. SNEAK PEEKS of what's in store for February!

As always, we had a great time at CHA, going from booth to booth seeing all of the new products that manufacturers have in store for us this Spring! Plus we found a lot of other cool booths that we are going to work with to bring you some exclusive Scarlet Lime Products as well! I can't wait for this year, and it all starts with February! One thing you may notice as you read through our newsletter, is that we aren't offering a mini kit this month. We have decided for the next few months to only offer one add-on kit each month, which will be our Project kit. We have such a huge response to our Projects (and you will see why when you see what project Valerie Salmon created with it!).. and so we want to have a few months to really focus on this kit and possibly offer subscriptions on this kit,  in ADDITION to our main kit. We have alot of requests to offer it as a subscription, so people don't miss out each month, so we are going to try and work on getting that set up in the next few months and see how it goes! That doesn't mean the mini kit is gone forever.. so no worries.. we know there is a fan base for our mini kits too!

I hope you enjoy the inspiration in this issue and want to thank The Cutting Cafe' and Making Memories for our Giveaways for this newsletter!
It's good to be home! have a wonderful weekend :)

Hugs! Christy

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Member Gallery Inspiration!

How many of you know we have a members gallery!?? I love going there on a quiet afternoon,  to see what you have all done using our kits each month! I thought it would be fun to feature some of the layouts I found while browsing the member's gallery and hopefully these creative projects will help boost your creativity and find inspiration from our member's gallery as well!

This first layout  called Rough and Tumble was uploaded by member Dori! This kit was done using our January Mini kit. I love how she captures he daughters fun personality in this layout!

JJStar did this next inspiration! A fun card using a mix of past kits! So simple but it's so darn cute! Love the dimensional frame and the ribbons ties! Easy to re-create! Thanks girl for sharing!

 

I love this layout because it proves that even boy pages look great with flowers on them! I know we tend to have a bit "girly" kits.. but I am so glad to see how Ember S used this kit to create something for her son!
 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This next layout was uploaded by BBhome, and was done using our August Main kit (yes I can remember that far back! LOL).. Love how she used the papers and cut them out to be embellishments!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Our next featured layout was done by Leah,  using our October Mini kit and the November main kit! Again, like with the last layout, she really utilized the paper and cut out the tress from one of the Sassafras Lass papers in the kit and used them as embellishments! I love how she layered everything on the page, including creating the house, the look of hedges in the front and even the paper word strips! This is Seriously SO cute!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Elisha Wiggins sent me these pictures of the mobile she created using our Valentines Project kit.  I LOVE that Elisha sent me this because it actually inspired me to pull my kit out and create one of my own!  It's so cool how she used similar ideas from Mel's original, but yet hers is creative and different as well! I have to admit it was one of my favorite project kits we have ever done! So cute! Thanks for sharing Elisha!

I don't know if you all remember, but in December, we posted in our Newsletter instructions on how to create aprons out of dish towels and ribbons included in your kits! Julie Boardman sent me this picture of an apron she created for the Holidays! I LOVE the pompom trim on the bottom of this apron! So cute and her daughter models it so well!  I feel inspired to create some fun Valentine Aprons! (off to Target to find some cute dishtowels!) . thanks for the inspiration girl!
 
We have an awesome sponsor this month for one of our giveaways! I don't know how many of you are into digital downloads, but my dear friend, Regina, has a cool new store called The Cutting Cafe'!

I have to tell you, about a year or so ago, I saw this color combination on a fashion runway (it was a sweater combined with a skirt and bag) and I LOVED IT! I knew that one of these months I wanted to use this color combination as inspiration for one of my kits! I love the bright vibrant colors (don't I always though? LOL).. and the yet it still has a soft feel to it.  I can't wait to show you all the NEW products we have going into the kit this month! New products from American Crafts, Making Memories, Creative Cafe and more! So fun! Make sure you check back on the 1st for our full reveal and a full list of all the contents in this kit!
 

 

I am excited about our February project kit because Valerie Salmon, one of our Artist Team Members, created it! it's an adorable Butterfly mini book, just in time for Spring! It's got lots of fun goodies in it from CHA plus a dang cute stamp created by our very own Jayla Campbell!  This is one kit you won't want to miss!
