Wow, this week is zooming by which is good and bad, bad because I haven't done everything I planned to do but GOOD because my vacation is tomorrow! Whoop! Hot sunshine here I come :) 

It could possibly be a little quiet on the blog over the next couple of days with no scheduled posts, but not to worry the Sneak Peeks start on MONDAY for the September release!! 

Due to me being away on the 11th the reveal and release day will be Saturday 15th September!  I will also announce the winner of the blog candy of the 16th September. There is still time to enter! 

Anyway, how about a couple of projects using this Classic collection...

This digital paper collection was released for The Queens Diamond Jubilee here in the UK but the colours can be used for any occasion and more so they are great for masculine cards! Below is a new project using the collection...

This card shows how the paper collection can be used for more feminine cards which are not your typical soft pastels or bright pinks and oranges. I used the Pure Florals: Gerbera flower and paired it with the red gingham paper from the collection. I used the current Freshly Made Sketch HERE and seen below for my card layout.

I've picked out a couple of older projects using this collection that show the masculine possibilities for this collection...

I hope today's projects both new & old have given you some ideas of how to incorporate your patterned papers into your projects.

Thanks for stopping by today.
