Designer Friday!

Happy Friday! I've been blessed with a wonderful response to the monthly samplers, so I thought it would be fun to offer more sampler options in the shop.  I have several in the works, but today I would like to share with you the first mini sampler to hit Precocious Paper's virtual shelves: Fuchsia Cherries!

The very talented Mandy Koeppen worked her magic with the mini sampler and created this fabulous card:

Don't these colors make you think of summer?  The deep pink and golden yellow say summer to me :).  Mandy's stellar cardmaking skills didn't stop there:

Gorgeous, right?! I love how easy it is to give a handmade note some serious texture and "wow" by adding a fabric and felt flower :).  Mandy also dressed up a simple headband for her daughter:

How cute is this?!  All you would have to do to recreate this look is sandwich your headband between a piece of felt and the flowers, with hot glue in between.  Not even five minutes and you would have your own sweet hair accessory :).

You can find the mini sampler, Fuchsia Cherries, here.  If you have any requests for color palettes or themes, let me know! I have a list going and would love to add your ideas.  Thank you Mandy for your fabulous work, and thank you for stopping by today!

The boys are gone on a camping trip tonight, which leaves me all. by. myself.  It's either going to be a scrappy marathon or a night out with my sisters.  Either way, I can't wait! Enjoy your weekend :). Tessa
