Beautiful Paper Design With Patterns, Luxurious Textures And Shimmer

Scrapbooking is all about being creative, capturing memories and having fun. The goal of GCD Studios is to provide you with beautiful, fun, fresh, sophisticated and innovative designs. Once I got to see and feel the GCD Studios papers in my hands, I understood their tagline which is "We Make Luxury Affordable." Truly, GCD Studios papers offer an abundance of beautifully designs patterns with luxurious textures and shimmer.

No matter the project that you are working on, you will be sure to find a line in the shop that will be perfect. Be sure to check out the A Cherry on Top Shop for GCD Studios!

"Family Blessings"

Every year, I create a new family layout in black and white to hang in my dining room. While we were at Mother's Day brunch this year, my cousin took this group shot which I knew would be the perfect updated photo. My son, Colin, didn't want to look at the camera. He thinks it is pretty funny to not cooperate. On the other hand, my daughter, Lauren, would pose at a moment's notice. Although the photo isn't perfectly posed, I knew it is pretty representative of the personalities in our family.

The GCD Studios Paris Nights collection was the perfect paper line to work with for this layout. The papers are absolutely amazing. Beautiful patterns, gorgeous shimmer, and flocking...what more could you want!


"Easter Dancing"

It is so fun to have a Princess and Prince Charming living under one roof! My little princess, Lauren, absolutely loves to get dressed up and really looks forward to new dresses for the holidays. For Easter this year, she decided she wanted to wear her dress all day. When she came downstairs after getting ready, Colin walked over to her and asked her if she wanted to dance. We just happened to have the radio on at the time. The dancing started out so sweet and slow, but quickly turned into a choke hold with some tackling. It was fun while it lasted! LOL.

For the layout, I was immediately drawn to the beautifully shimmered patterned paper of the Chic Bebe line. My favorite paper was the Nursery flowers shimmer paper which I also used as embellishment throughout the layout. I added buttons throughout to create some added dimension.


"So Sweet" Card

For this card, I used the bold and vibrant Provence Collection.


"Happy Birthday" Card

For a softer feel, I used the pastel Spring All Over collection.
