I received my box with the new collection, Now & Then last week. All I can say is be prepared to want every piece in this collection. This line has Teresa's signature style all over it. It is perfect for documenting your special boy, or girl. Gorgeous tones of blues, subtle green, rich mahogany, and a classic newsprint pattern. I decided to create a masculine page as one of my first projects.
A little bit of everything on this page of my darling son. I used chipboard, brads, borders, and a bit of inking using the Now & Then Stamp collection.
Here are a few details:
Above you can see the circular border found in the die cut border package. I really like these, because they are already prepared for you. No punching needed, adding interest instantly! You can also see the stripe pattern underneath the border. This is pulled from the 6x6 coordinating paper pack. A brad adds a bit of masculine detail to the banner on top of the embossed circle. A bit more stamping using the stamp set. On the left hand side I used two stamps right on top of one another for a bit of interest.
I turned to my Cricut to die cut the BOY embellishment on this page. Every photo of my son reminds me that he is one rough, and tough little man. I would not want it any other way! The finishing details are the masking tape ink again with the same mini star border stamp. I love stamps, and it makes me happy to see my stash of Teresa Collin's stamps accumulating! Perfect for just adding just a bit more to your page, without extra dimension.
Finally, layers of papers, part of a ticket border, and a number chipboard element finished the top of the page! This collection is truly gorgeous, and cannot wait to create a mini book with it, soon!
Have a fabulous week, and we cannot wait to see what you create with Now & Then.
