Coming April 17... to a consultant near you

The National Scrapbooking Month special-  Dotty For You begins April 17th.  In anticipation I've been creating some artwork to show off this great special!

First- Dotty for You is a pack of 24 sheets of paper.  There are 2 each of 12 designs.  The sheets are double sided.  The front has a full color design and the back is monochromatic polka dots.  So even if the front doesn't excite you- the back is so versatile that everyone can use it for something! PLUS it comes with a full color insert full of layout and card ideas.

The retail value of the package is $19.95.  There are 3 ways to get one for yourself!  1)  Make a $35 purchase and add Dotty for You for only $5,  2) Host a party of $400 or more and get it free OR 3)  Join my team and it will be added to your new consultant kit!

Here is some artwork I've created so far with this set:
 This layout uses the grey polka dot and butterfly papers from the set.  It also uses Cork color ready alphabet, smoothie Keepsake felt alphabet, smoothie cardstock and Desert sand ink to distress the edges.  I used my Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge to cut out the large scallop circle at about 9 3/4 inches.
 On the second layout I again used the Cork Alphabet as well as white daisy and Lagoon Cardstock to mat.  I used Sweet Leaf cardstock as my base paper.
 On the 3rd layout I used Sweet Leaf Cardstock, Lagoon Cardstock, Grey Wool Cardstock, Paradise paper flowers and Bakers Twine.  I printed my journaling on the Sweet Leaf Polka dot pattern from the Dotty for YOu pack and cut it into strips
The Dotty for You pack does not include Creme Brulee in the patterns but I thought that color cardstock looked good on this layout.  I also used White and lagoon cardstock and the cork alphabet.

The butterflies were cut from leftover paper on the first layout.  I think there is a good mix of "girl" and "generic" paper to use for boys.    If you take the butterflies off this layout it could easily be switched to a "little brother" layout... Hmmm... I might be on to something.  I printed all of the photos in duplicate and I have another sheet of that zigzag paper...  I might just do that!

That's my sneak peek for today...  I will be back in a few days with my May card post... so watch for that!

I almost forgot!!!  The winner of my Footloose paper pack contest posted on my shadowbox post last week is Tracie Thomes!  I had 3 people e-mail me that they tried to post a comment and it showed an error so I included them in the drawing last week!  Congrats Tracie and I will e-mail you about your prize!
