For Always Coordinating Products
Though Spring 2013 has been slowly teasing Kansas with warm weather and sunshine in between snow storms, love is in the air for many couples preparing to wed. Even though I had a bright colored Hawaiian style wedding, I can’t help but think of black and white shades when I am preparing gifts and cards. I wanted to share a few new Spring products with you to dress up all your wedding and graduation projects.

Follow the guide’s step-by-step instructions to create the featured two-page layout. The layout pattern is created exclusively for this workshop. Then use your remaining materials and online tips to create the additional layout and a bonus project, shown in the guide, or your own project and creations. Would you like to see the scrapbook project? It is this 12″ × 12″ 2-page layout. This layout features bright pops of ruby red with subtle grey tones, black and white script paper, sparkles, stamping, and shapes cut using the Artiste Cricut Cartridge. The example uses wedding photos, but this layout would be appropriate for any photos you would like to showcase on a scrapbook page.
Below are a few of my favorite products that give For Always artwork extra “pop”. The Black and Grey Glitter Paper is very impressive and about the best I have used from the paper crafting market. Many companies carry glitter paper, but Close To My Heart’s glitter paper is a nice weight to scrap with and doesn’t loose its glitter everytime you touch or cut the paper.
Resin flowers are very trendy. The For Always Assortment Set has a bright set of resin flowers to use as accents for your artwork. This assortment is included in the Workshop Kit. Just watch out for the stick pins, because they are sharp! Ouch. Luckily, they do come with little plastic stoppers on their ends. When you want to apply these stick pin flowers to your project, just remove the stopper and replace it once the pin is in place.
Here is a better look at the For Always paper pack. There are some very trendy patterns suited for graduation gifts, invitations and thank you cards along with more traditional patterns more suited for weddings and anniversaries. There are also small patterns more suited to accents, small cards and projects in addition to larger patterns best suited to 12″ × 12″ layouts and larger projects.
