Truly Yours Collection Inspiration with Lisa Mensing

Hi, this is Lisa Mensing, and I am so excited to be sharing a few projects featuring the Truly Yours Collection. I love how so soft and elegant this collection is. I settled on pinks and orange, with silver to add a touch of bling, while the kraft card stock adds some much-needed contrast.

I love that you can mix and match each set in this collection and create one-of-a-kind looks by simply using your favorite glimmer plate to add a fun design to the skirt, the swan’s wings, even the bouquet wrapper.

    I love this collection and purchased many of them already. They create beautiful cards and the glimmer just ratcheted up interest and design for me. I find I like the look of the craft stock as it makes everything front and center stage. Love your colors matched with the silver – soft, pretty and something I am planning on using in my next set of cards! Thanks for alway providing a new, fresh way to use the dies and new ideas like adding glimmer to the flower bouquet wrapper – really cool.

    I never would have thought to put kraft and silver together — I would have thought the “styles” would clash. But these look really lovely!
