Designer Showcase: GCD Studios paper!

Hello everyone! I am excited to share what the contributors made using brand new GCD Studios paper called Lydia! The paper is so pretty and has a little glitter and flocking. It also has fun, bright colors! GCD Studios was nice enough to send each contributor some fabulous papers to work with! Make sure you check out the whole Lydia collection here. Thanks GCD!!!

Sarah is up first! She made some adorable pages and really showcased the bright colors of the Lydia Collection. I like how many flowers she cut out too. Take a peek at her pages:

Next, is Delaina who is also a facebook design team member for GCD!! I love how Delaina always adds neat sewing techniques to her pages! She also cut out some fabulous flower on her pages:

Heather did a beautiful job of scrapping with the Lydia collection! She used lots of neat layering and added kraft and black to the background for a neat effect. Here are her pages:

Dolores made some really pretty pages! I love all of the neat shapes she used on her pages! The detailing is so pretty. Take a peek at her pages:

Here is page by Julie! She cut out the flowers and layered the paper in such a beautiful way! The butterfly is that perfect little accent on the top of the page!

Susan created two gorgeous pages! The Lydia collection really made her photos pop! I love how bright and fun her pages are and the all of the pretty bling:

Next, is Cathy. She did such an amazing job using the Lydia paper for boy photos. I love how she combined other element with the paper and created some beautiful designs. She also created two fabulous cards below:

Cindy created lots of fun projects! She made these nicely designed pages and she even decorated a plane with patterned paper. What a neat idea! Cindy also made a really cute cupcake album, you can see it below:

Lastly, here are two pages by me:
