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
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 :)
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
This first layout
called Rough and Tumble was uploaded by member
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
used this kit to create something
for her son!
This next layout was uploaded by
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
Our next featured layout was
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!
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!
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'! You can
download templates and images that you can save to your computer and
then print out on paper and use on your scrapbooking pages, project
or even cards! Shown at right is a card temple that she has
available right now, that she used to create this adorable card! She

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!|

project kit because Valerie Salmon, one of our Artist Team Members,
created it! it's an adorable Butterfly mini book, just in time for

stamp created by our very own Jayla Campbell! This is one kit you
