May Sampler

Introducing the May Sampler, "Mother's Portrait"....

Inspired by both Crate Paper's Portrait collection and Sandi Henderson's Meadowsweet fabric line, this sampler includes:

♥ 1 Fabric and Felt Flower
♥ 1 Coral Satin Rolled Flower
♥ 1 Woodgrain Lollipop Flower with Pearl Center
♥ 1 Layered Canvas Flower (perfect for misting or dyeing)
♥ 1 Black Polka Dot Cupcake Poppy
♥ 2 Rolled Fabric Flowers in Mustard Yellow and Aqua
♥ 1 Handsewn Black Gingham Yo-Yo with Button Center
♥ 3 Leaves
♥ 3 Ribbons on Clothespins, including Black Glitter, White Sheer, and Aqua Grosgrain
♥ 1 Decorative Stick Pin

The coordinating Sweet Spots are made with patterned papers from Portrait:

And here's a new item I've been excited to share with you - Butterfly Doilies!  This particular pair coordinates perfectly with the yellows, aquas, and black and white:

Design team member Mandy created a really fun layout with the Sampler, using Crate Paper's Restoration line:

I love the graphic look of the alphas blended with the bright colors of the flowers and butterflies :).  Mandy also created this vintage chic, large tag:

She combined the cavas flower with the cupcake poppy for a cool, layered look.
