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
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!
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
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
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
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
Check out their website!
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,
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

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
