Today Design Team member Kerys Sharrock shows us the the unlimited potential of the Imaginisce Sole Sisters collection. I think its unlimited potential matches my unlimited love for buying new shoes. And what's better than new paper for your stash that has shoes on it? I know! Maybe buying new shoes and then using that paper to make a layout about it. :)
For now, enjoy Kerys' amazing projects, darling kiddos, and craftiness at using the embellishment packaging in her projects!

For my first Design Team post I was absolutely THRILLED to use the Imaginisce 'Sole Sisters' collection. I had secretly been hoping to see this collection come up on Scrapbook Steals ever since I saw the launch over on the Imaginisce blog. I had even bought myself some stick pins and buttons that matched the collection! There is SO much exciting stuff in this collection, so I tried to make a variety of projects using each and every bit. (Including the packaging!)
My first project was inspired by my daughter's recent dance recital—how perfect that her outfit should be black and red! I made a mini book full of all her pre-show poses and dance moves. The red background paper on these pages is actually the packaging from the embellishments. I always try and use the packaging wherever possible. I used a variety of the papers and embellishments from the collection, trying to stick to the color scheme, and added twine and brads.
Next, I went to town making cards. This has become one of my recent passions and, I must say, with this collection it was SUPER easy! All the inspiration I needed was right there in the packets. The first card uses the border strip paper and and embellishments from the collection. Add one little sentiment stamp and voila, a quick and easy card!
The next card took a little more time and effort, but as soon as I found the 'If the shoe fits....' quote, I just knew I had to use the shoe stamp from the collection. I used a variety of colored inks and then jazzed the shoes up with a little twine.
The last card was made using another one of the stamps from the collection, colored in with prismacolor pencils. I also added one of my stick pins and buttons I mentioned earlier—not from this collection but a perfect match.
And lastly, just to show those of you who think 'this collection is no good, I only have boys to scrap!" — a boy layout! This one is my son who recently took part in the 4th July Parade in Park City with his school. As you can see, the papers can be just as easily used for a more masculine page. These papers worked out perfectly.
So as you can see, I was in IMAGINISCE heaven with this 'Sole Sisters' collection. I hope I've inspired you all to hit that steal button and grab a great collection. I had so much fun with this, and still have SO much left to play with! :) Thanks again Brittany and Kristy for matching me up so perfectly with this collection.
Until next time—happy scrapping :) x

Kerys, your projects are stunning! You know me and my allergy to stamping, but wow, that shoe card makes me want to bust out some inks!
Thank you so much for sharing with us today. I can't wait until next month to see what you have in store for us.
I hope you all have a lovely weekend! I know I will. Tomorrow I get to scrap with Kerys and a bunch of other local Utah gals. I can't wait!
