I was inspired by the new Ocean Blue 8×8 Paper Pad and found some more new beachy/underwater embellishments (more on those below) but first: this new paper!

Beautiful underwater collage images, in shades of blue and sepia. Get a headstart on summer daydreaming! Plus it’s on sale through tomorrow as part of the Beach & Mermaids Theme FLASH SALE!

What else is NEW today?

Beachy Goodies! That Iridescent Water Bubble Microbead Mix would be lovely in tiny glass bottles or washing up in waves on sandy beaches… or maybe in a mermaid’s underwater garden.

And in addition to two new Chipboard Seaweed Sets, the Shamrock Vines are back in stock (and featured in new artwork below).

Bunny Love by Rhonda Thomas!

Design Team Member Rhonda Thomas has written a fun little story, all about these gnomes and the bunny object of their affections! Here’s the start of this tale from her blog post:

Oh but to gain the love of the beautiful bunny that lives on the hill. She just captivates all living creatures.

Two brother gnomes competed for her love. But neither understood her like the brown bunny did. He knew her hearts desire and won her over immediately as he brought her fresh cauliflower and carrots from the farmer’s garden. He promised to forever grow crops if she would take his paw in marriage.

Read more (and see more photos — including how Rhonda created a stand for the egg extensions to the bunny’s house) in Rhonda’s blog post and here’s her Supply List… plus read on as there’s a related Giveaway!
