Welcome to the Scarlet Lime Newsletter

 

I hope your summer is going well! We've had lots of rain with sprout of sunshine here and there, so to kick summer into  FULL gear, I decided I better create a fresh, vibrant kit for July! I had pictured in my mind what I wanted it to look like and searched high and low for papers that inspired my vision.. but alas no luck.. BUT then an idea came to me... why not have them designed FOR me?.... and I knew the PERFECT person who could design just what I had envisioned!  I had the pleasure of asking one of THE most talented artists in our industry.. to design some EXCLUSIVE, FABULOUS, BRIGHT and oh so GORGEOUS papers for our July Main kit! Now I know we usually only do exclusive papers every 4 months, but I know you won't complain when you see what she did for us! So I bet you are dying to know who she is right?? Well I am going to keep you guessing, you'll just have to read on! We also have some awesome inspiration in this month's newsletter, as well as a really cool tip from one of our Artist Team members using June's kit! I hope you enjoy the peeks of what's in store for July and if you aren't a current subscriber, we do have open spots, so read below to find out how!

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
Hugs to you!

Member Gallery Inspiration!

Each month we are going to feature layouts from our Members gallery in our newsletter! It's a great place to get inspiration from fellow subscribers on how to use your kits!  So start uploading your layouts today! you just might find your layout in our next newsletter! 

This first layout we have for June is one I loved immediately! , Amandagibson1   created this layout using bits and pieces from a lot of our past kits! I LOVE how simple this layout is. I love her creative journaling, and how her titles all fit together so wonderfully! Plus it's a boy page and it's just goes to show you that boy pages do work well with florals! Thanks girl for sharing!

SophiaA, created this gorgeous layout using bits and pieces of our February kits!  I love the handmade flowers she made using paper and braids and how she creatively used the stickers as "stem" to her flowers as well! The picture is priceless!   

 

 

 

 

 

Janna Wilson, one of our Artist Team members created another layout using our June Project kit! This kit was really so bright and fun and I wanted to show you that with our project kits, you don't always have to do the projects we provide. You can certainly just purchase the kits to create layouts with as well as they include full sheets of papers and oodles of coordinating embellishments!! This is an adorable example of what you can do with your project kit! I love the sewing details around both the swim embellishment and the moments captured embellishment! Cool idea! thanks girl! By the way.. did you know that each month we have layouts designed specially FOR our kit, that our artist team members create? They are always posted on the first of the month in the tab listed as "artist gallery" at the top right hand side of our website. So make sure to check them out!
I also wanted to highlight a super cool technique that Janna did using one of the products in our June Main kit. This month, our kit included sequins and I wanted to show you how to use them as borders on your layouts! She simply glued them down on the page in a line, then went over them with her sewing machine, giving the appearance that they were  actually stitched into place! I love how she created a frame around the picture with the sewing machine, and then randomly placed the sequins around it, to create unity around the frame. you could easily do this with hand stitching as well, or even rubons!  I can't wait to see what you guys do with those little gems!  Thanks Janna for inspiring us!

I know so many of you love cards and when Danielle Wycough, our Guest Artist for June, sent me a picture of this card she made last week with our June kit, I just had to share! What a simple fun way to use the pieces in the kit! I especially love the stamp.. what a cute way to showcase it!
 

This past week I had the pleasure of being the guest designer for a WONDERFUL website called ColorcombosGalore!   It's a great place to get color and design inspiration you have to check it out! ! As their guest designer, they sent me fun color scheme  asked me and several of their own designers to create a layout based on the color scheme! They also have a members gallery where anyone can post their layouts as well as contests and much more! Here is the layout I did using the color combination I was given... Salmon pink, Grass green, Black and Cream!

 Okay.. I am SERIOUS when I say.. this kit is ONE OF MY FAVORITES! LOL!  I know I say that a lot.. but seriously.. look at those GORGEOUS paper designs! OH how can you not just LOVE THEM?  So I know I told you earlier in the newsletter that one very TALENTED lady, designed these for me. She is one of my dearest friends and I can honestly say, one of THE most talented designers in our industry.. she has been in our industry for over 10 years, designing papers, embellishments, and even writing books.  I really wanted this kit to be bright, fresh and have a vintage yet modern flair to it and she did JUST THAT!  So you want to know who she is?? It's none other than the very talented, Melody Ross! You may know her from her many years as owner of Chatterbox.. and I am SO blessed she agreed to design these exclusive papers JUST FOR US! I also have to say I love the stamp that Jayla designed this month.. and you are going to love the embellishments (and handmade goodies) we have in store!

We have ordered  extra kits again  this month, so we have open spots for July AND we hope to have one time purchases available on the 1st as well! If you are interested in becoming a subscriber simply e-mail me at christytomlinson@gmail.com  to find out how! Remember also to check back on the 1st of July to see the full reveal of this kit and get your hands on this kit!

 

Our July project kit is full of new products I know you are going to enjoy! When I saw these adorable papers at CHA, by Kaiser Crafts, I knew I had to design a kit around them! I bundled together some papers from Webster's Pages, Scenic Route and Cosmo Cricket and they all just match so wonderfully! PLUS the stamp is to die for in this kit, and remember you can only get our stamps IN Our kits. We don't sell them separately! So you have to get your hands in this kit! We have pictured out lost of cool goodies for this kit. Bright, fun embellishments that coordinate beautifully with this kit and you are going to love the project we have done with this kit as well! Can't wait for the 1st to see it all!
