Amethyst – Layout 4
If Maria were singing the sounds of music, I think that rather than going for curtains to make a new outfit, she would make a mad dash for today's steal, the Fabrications Collections by Teresa Collins. The Fabrications collections are filled with rich textures and designs that will bring to life not only your wardrobe but your scrapbook pages ranging from vintage memories of grandparents, to silly texts from your special someone. Note: I do not recommend machine washing the Fabrications collections, therefore sticking to paper crafting may be the desired result.
I found both of the Fabrications collections so enjoyable that I decided I would put both of them to use.
The first layout I created using the Linen collection. I absolutely adore getting texts from my husband. He keeps me entertained throughout the day and it's always a toss up as to what kind of messages he will send. Sometimes they are funny, sometimes they make my heart melt. Whatever they are, they make me love him all the more, and I wanted to create a layout about the utter and complete randomness that often comes my way.
I love how the color palate of this collection wraps up in a little nutshell a layout about love!
Next, I used the Canvas collection to create a very special layout about a very special friend. This past January, I was honored to be asked to teach a class for We R Memory Keepers at the Winter CHA in Anaheim, CA. Not only was I thrilled to have a little time off of mommy duty (HOORAY!), but I was able to meet and spend some good time with a dear friend that I met as a result of my job at ScrapbookSteals, the ever so talented Brenda Smith.
The colors in the Canvas collection are a true representation of the happiness that I felt finally meeting in person someone that inspires me so greatly. And, of course, Teresa's embellishments always add that perfect finishing touch.
So there you have it! If you're creating anything ranging from vintage all the way to layouts about texting, or even a new wardrobe for the kidlets, the Teresa Collins Fabrications collections are versatile and incredibly unique. Now if I can just keep my 10-year-old out of the stash, since she thinks they would be perfect for wallpapering her doll house. But you know what? They really would be perfect!
