Good morning/afternoon/or evening! Casharina here…and I’m so excited to be bringing you another Product Spotlight. Aren’t these posts so fun?! I know before I became a part of the Shabby Artist Team I loved getting to see the inspiration pages from the kits I had, or was considering purchasing. It’s fun to see what others can do with the same elements, papers, and flowers but still create pages that are so unique and imaginative.
Today I’m spotlighting Autumn Chic…and this gorgeous kit will be ON SALE at the Shabby Shoppe for only $4.75 (for a limited time)
I know some of you aren’t getting to enjoy the beautiful weather of fall, but we have been and I am definitely trying to soak it all up. I can’t wait to go camping and sit by the fire without having a heat stroke! The colors in this beautiful kit are perfect for fall pages, or everyday pages that need the deeper, brighter colors of the season. As you can see for my inspiration page, I’ve created a layout focusing on my little girl and her “reading habits.” She’s so funny! I loved the bright bold colors; they just added the perfect touch to the page!
Let’s see what kind of inspiration the girls from the creative team can give you today. First up we have a gorgeous page from Kylie. Her use of the papers to create the perfect little banner, and all of her ribbons are an excellent way to make use of the beautiful elements included in Autumn Chic.
Next up we have a beautiful page from Rosy. I absolutely love the way she’s featured the alpha letter “A” for her little girls name, isn’t it the perfect touch. Her stitching on the ribbon and paper circles are also a great example of the beautiful papers in the Autumn Chic collection.
Last, but certainly not least, we have a gorgeous layout created by Kim. I love how she’s included the flower throughout her entire spread. The tenderness you can feel in this page is portrayed through the photograph as well as the flawless use of flower clusters. They’re a wonderful addition to the girly-ness of this page.
Thanks for stopping by the blog! Join Kylie on Thursday for your October projectSCRAP templates.

Hi everyone! :o) Kylie here with today’s gorgeous Product Spotlight!
For a limited time, the Organic collection will be on SALE at the Shabby Shoppe for ONLY $4.25!
It has been a couple of years since we last spotlighted this amazing lil’ collection…and I’m excited to bring it to you once again! I’m a huge, huge fan of the color palette…all earthy, rich & rustic, fall-tastic and gorgeously organic. Funky metal elements aged to perfection, an array of stitched circles, a little felt, a little torn paper and a very cool tag-like alpha that can be used in any number of creative ways. And the floral paper is one of my very favorite Shabby Princess papers – I just plain ol’ LOVE it!! :o) Organic is truly perfect for all your family memories – Autumn thru to Spring and late Summer. And combined with the coordinating JOURNEY round labels scrapping your vacation and travel stories has never been easier! This set of sticker-like coasters add that certain something to all your layouts - they work GREAT as titles…or just add to your story-telling.
The JOURNEY round label pack is also on SALE (for a limited time!) at the Shabby Shoppe for ONLY $1.12!
Alright…so, how about some BRAND NEW inspiration!
I challenged myself NOT to use any flowers on my first page…and for me that’s a big deal! ;o) I had to remind myself that there is NO scrapbooking rule that says you must add flowers to every single page! LOL!!
Let’s see what the girls came up with! I’m afraid they are just a snapshot so please visit the SHABBY ARTIST GALLERY to see these seriously-amazing, totally-glorious layouts at full-size…and to find out more about each individual page :o)
And one last LO…from me! This time with flowers (picked fresh from the new & FREE Not too Shabby Samplers!! – and they coordinate perfectly with the Organic papers and embellishments)
Thanks for joining me today! I’ll be back again on Thursday to announce the winner of Easy-As-Pie Template Challenge 27 (yay!) and to post the next challenge! So fire up those computers and prepare to SCRAP easy-as-pie-style!!
Enjoy the rest of your day and, as always, HAPPY SCRAPPING!! :o)

Hi everyone! It’s me, Casharina, and today I’m bringing a Product Spotlight! YAY!! This time I get to spotlight the very beautiful GRACIE collection.
To date, this is one of the largest kits you’ll find in the Shabby Shoppe. It is packed with all sorts of goodies, including beautiful, bright colored papers, tons of embellishments that I find myself using on all sorts of pages, and word art to help complete that special layout! The stitching elements included are some of my favorite pieces in this kit, and I seem to consistently add them to my pages.
Gracie will be ON SALE for a limited time! That means you can pick up all this beauty for just $6.75 – right HERE!
To show you just how gorgeous this kit is the team and I have created a few layouts to share!
First up I’ve used the Gracie collection to create a page focusing on my girlies and their interaction with one another during a small photo shoot. I love the word art at the bottom, it was the perfect element to finish this page, and don’t you love the vellum pocket? So cute!
Rosy has outdone herself this time creating a two page layout for us! I absolutely adore her use of the stitching and flowers to help our eyes move along through all of the beautiful images included in the layout. I also love how she has taken advantage of the tapes and hearts to tack down her lovely pieces of paper surrounding the page, super cute!
Kim does an uber great job of showing off different ways to use the gorgeous frames included in Gracie. I have to say I “love” the way she’s tacked the hook and key as well, SO creative!
Once again Kylie has shown her hand at how utterly amazing her pieces can be with her skills of clustering. I love how she has used many of the beautiful papers to cluster in around the focus image on the page, and don’t you just love the little butterfly peeking through the flowers, a perfect touch!
Thank you girls for the beautiful layouts! Check out the gallery to see more information about each of these pages and don’t forget to add your layouts to the gallery too!
Thanks for stopping by the blog! Tomorrow Kim will be sharing some photography fun, so don’t miss that!

Hello Shabby Shoppe readers! Rosy here, to bring you a product spotlight featuring one of SP’s fun and versatile kits named “Smarshmallows”! Isn’t the name so fun!
Smarshmallows has a beautifully versatile color palette and lots of fun embellishments including stars, felt circles and leaves, ribbons, frames, painted swirls, buttons, and more. If you like to embellish with ribbons or buttons then you’ll love Smarshmallows, because it has lots of them!
There is also an element pack of Round Labels – A Child’s World that matches this kit and fits in perfectly with all the other circles in the kit!
These are great to use on children’s pages, but I often use them as a base for a cluster of embellishments on any theme page. On my “This Tricycle’s Life” page I’ve used the labels under the felt circles with buttons to create a stacked cluster. Notice that the striped paper in Smarshmallows makes a beautiful plaid and I’ve softlight blended the star pattern into the solid neutral background.
On “Lilies” circles take center stage with circle stamps, circle photos and button flowers! The stitching in Smarshmallows also worked perfectly as journaling lines in this layout.
Casharina has done a beautiful job of showing the girlie side of Smarshmallows and she’s also made great use of the cardboard journaler!
Kylie’s cute page is circle heaven! I love her use of the fun alpha in the kit and the ribbons layered among the elements.
Beckie’s page is a wonderful example of the versatile nature of Smarshmallows! With a few additions from sandbox and summer cottage, it makes an adorable beach page. I love how she’s used the swirls to mimic waves here!
Kim’s fun page makes great use of the visual triangle design principle using three felt circle embellishments. I love how she has highlighted the” winner” photo with the circle stamp and a frame!
The Smarshmallows kit and Round Labels – A Child’s World are ON SALE for a limited time, so now is your chance to snatch them up! Smarshmallows is only $4.50 and the coordinating Round Labels just $1.05!
Want the smarshmallows look but don’t have time to scrap…then check out the 12×12 Piece-a-Cake Album and the cute little Tin Album Project. These fabulous timesavers are also ON SALE for a limited time!
Thanks for stopping in and be sure to check in on Thursday when Kylie brings us the next template challenge!
