Have you checked out the American Crafts collections in the store? This beach scene was created using the"Heat Wave" Collection. One sheet is available in variable sea-colored glitter! Another is covered with clouds. Lots of possibilities for your vacation photos. Plus this collection has the added feature of offering you a matching border strip on the bottom edge of each sheet of cardstock.
Another great collection is "Dear Lizzy." You may have seen ads on the internet stores. I did not really like this collection at first. But when I started working with it, I fell in love. The colors are so coordinated, you can't go wrong. There are even some designs in the collection with Easter artwork. The look would also work for Mother's Day.
The green striped paper is really glitter striped. Wow! The collection also features rose and green coordinating ribbon as seen in the layout. There are also additional embellishments that coordinate well.
