Final Sultane/InfoCrea Projects

I have been lucky enough to be on the design team for Sultane/InfoCrea -- a French paper company -- since 2007.  They saw my work in the Two Peas Gallery and asked me to join the team.  I was thrilled to design a paper line for them along the way.  It was released in January of 2009 and I learned a lot in the process of creating it.  They have always been extraordinarily kind to me and I appreciate it.

But all good things must come to an end.

As I have mentioned on my blog before I'm trimming back on my design team commitments so that I can spend more time pursuing some personal artistic goals.  These are my last projects for Sultane/InfoCrea.

I created a quick gift box from kraft cardstock.

And then used papers and a transparency strip from the "Ma maison en automne" collection to decorate it.

All of the design team members were asked to make a page using traditional Christmas colors and any of Sultane/InfoCrea's paper lines.  Here's my page:

I seem to be doing the strip down one side of the page a lot lately, don't you think?  But I love the look!

I hand cut the letters for the title and then stitched them in place.   Also, even though I hate how I look in this photo, I used it on my layout because it really captures the good feelings of the vacation.  Sometimes you have to put your vanity aside and capture the memory!

Lots of scraps of red paper stitched down.  To create the star I painted some patterned paper...

...and then cut out a star shape.

I did a little doodle along the edge of my journaling.  And the "ornaments" are little houses that I cut out and embellished with lots of glitter glue!

For this next layout I used paper from the collection that I designed. 

It's funny.  I love the way the layout turned out, but the paper is so not my style now.  But it is really spot on to where I was 2 years ago.

You can see that I used lots of gesso to blend the papers together and then plenty of painted words.

I am becoming more and more dependant on my sewing machine!  Can't seem to finish a layout without some stitch work!

This stamp originally had some text along the bottom, but I just cut it off.  Ah, the beauty of acrylic stamps!  They're so easy to customize for your needs!

Let me say one more thank you to Sultane/InfoCrea and the owners Fabien and Sarah for being so lovely to me for the past three years.

Thanks for stopping by!
