Photos Los Angeles & Parklane Paper Pads

Welcome to a new post on my blog featuring photos from Los Angeles and some projects with Parklane Paper Pads from JOANN (sponsored post).

It's a post with loooots of photos and little text :) ...

First, I'm sharing a selection of smartphone snapshots from L.A. and then continue with three pretty Parklane Paper Pads and the giftwrapping projects that I created with the paper pads. I first saw Parklane at a JOANN Store in L.A. And I really loved them back then. Now I had the chance to work with three paper pads from Parklane. But first, let's start with L.A. ... In April this year, I had the chance to stay in and around Los Angeles, California for three weeks. I had a wonderful time - here are many snapshots:

I also went to a JOANN store near Los Angeles. It's a huge warehouse store for crafters - and it felt like heaven to walk the aisles and look at all the crafty things....

At the JOANN store, I spotted some cool paper pads from Parklane.

And now I had the chance to play with three Parklane Paper Pads. The (last two) paper pads come with some cool specialty papers, including foil, linen, vellum, glitter, and fabric.

And now onto the giftwrapping projects I created with the paper pads.

I hope you like my projects with the Parklane Paper Pads. They are available at JOANN Fabric and Craft Stores in the U.S. and I'm sure you can also find them online. Thank you for stopping by and thank you for your time to scroll through this loooong post. Have a wonderful day, yours Sandra.

Crate Paper | Maggie Holmes' Heritage Collection | Cards

Today I'm sharing three handmade cards with Maggie Holmes' new collection Heritage. The origianl post can be found on the Crate Paper Blog. The special thing about these cards is that I mostly used embellishments that I fussy-cut from patterned papers that come with this collection. Let's have a look at the cards:

Now make sure to hop on over to the CP Blog to find out more about today's cards. I'm wishing you a great day! Yours, Sandra.
