Hi friends! Hope you've all had a great weekend - I know I have! I was able to catch up on a few projects I've had in mind.
Yesterday I stopped in the shop to drop off some store display projects with Annette and I picked up a couple sheets of the new flocked SEI paper. Oh my GOSH, is this stuff fun! The darker areas on this paper are the flocked parts -- when you rub your fingers over it you can feel that it's fuzzy.
I thought this paper would be PERFECT for a cute little box or bag - something special. Then I remembered that my friend Leigh made a super cute little tote template. I asked her permission to make her tote just for a store display, to show just how CUTE these papers are for 3D projects. I ended up altering her template a bit, but it's close enough to call it a "Leigh Tote".
There are lots of tote templates available online; if you need one you'll find lots of samples here. PaperCrafts magazine had one in the spring of last year -- I found it here. Super cute, and so easy!!
I also made a card using other papers in the flocked SEI line. I really like the graphic quality of the paper. Very 1960's ... they say everything that's old is new again. We see that true in papercrafts as well. I think it's great...but oh my, I think I can do without reliving the era of parachute pants and 80's hair.
