View Full Version : New Tuscan Collection from Helen

Hi everyone, I'm still recuperating from my arm surgery - still bothers me - but it's much better than before.

One of my new kits to hit the stores this month -- will be my new Tuscan collection. Called Tuscan Days - but it sort of reminds me of "Days of Wine and Roses" = sitting out in the garden of roses with a glass of wine - if only in my dreams, LOL.

This kit was inspired by my oldest daughter, who graduated with an interior design degree and has always loved this style - and her house is decorated with it. Lots of greens and terra cottas and ironwork and wood.

So I thought I would branch out and try something different. I hope you like the results.

First kit - Tuscan Days is done and waiting to be loaded into store.
I am going to my brothers in Ohio on Monday for a week - haven't been home for 2 years - so I may not be here when it hits the store. So I thought I would come in here and pre-announce it.

It includes 16 gorgeous papers (including one that would be fantastic for a fantasy layout) and 86 elements - every paper and element is unique - no recoloring. I have tons left over for addons - coming as soon as I can package them up.

Here's a preview of the new kit - Tuscan Days. The preview just doesn't do it justice - there are so many large sized elements in it - but I had to reduce them so small to get on the page. I will have to come back and do an elements sub-view later when I get back from my trip.



Hope you like it!

OMG Helen this is just gorgeous, am I ever glad I'm on your team, you are just so talented. The elements are so unique and there is just so much in this kit with endless possibilities for layouts and I do love doing scenic ones. I may have to sit and have a glass of wine or two while I'm in Vegas next week and have Todd take some photos of me so I can do a scenic layout LOL
Just awesome!!!!!
I'm so glad that you are doing better with your arm as well.
