I Love This Paper!
The Sierra Collection from Anna Griffin...Not sure how new this line of gorgeous papers is, but I discovered it at my local scrapbook store just the other day and totally love it! The colors are so rich and muted. And what really makes it extra-ordinary is that you can use it to make a most dressy, elegant wedding card today, but come tomorrow, you can pull out the same patterns and create that down & dirty scrapbook layout featuring your favorite little cowboy (or, in my case, cowGIRL!). I think this versatility comes from the the kraft paper-like feel and texture (no gloss or sheen). But no matter the reason, these papers add a touch of class no matter how fancy or casual the theme!

Here, I paired two of the Sierra patterns with my favorite little skunk from Clear Dollar Stamp's "Cute Critters" set, released earlier this month. I also used some vintage-style trim from Making Memories (the aqua ribbon is from the "Sophia" line, but I can't seem to track down the brick trim) and some antique-y looking buttons (brand spankin' new from JoAnn's!). Other stuff: Watercolor paper, Bazzill cs, Staz-On and Ranger Distress inks, Stampin' Up watercolor crayons, Stickles (Fruit Punch?), a paper-piercing tool & template, and foam adhesive. Thanks for takin' a look! Next up: Another Clear Dollar sneak peek for July!
