Mmmmmmmm irrisistible!

Rouge de Garance. I love, love, LOVE the papers and die cuts by this company. They have a beautiful website and lots of inspiration from the DT on their blog too.

I am a total patterned paper fanatic, I use lots of my pages and I had drooled over the papers for a long while but, you know, they are quite bold and I was really unsure of how I would be able to work with them. Well I was lucky enough to win a set of products in one of their blog challenges last year and that gave me the push I needed to work with something much more different than I usually did.

And oh my word! I so loved working with the pack that I was sent by RDG that I just had to go out and buy some more. They are a pretty hard to find range, but luckily Angel Crafts stocks it (note - it's all on 25% discount until the end of March which is erm, tonight!)

These are some of the pages I have created with the papers:

Using paper Fleur de Tiare No1 and die cut sheet Feuille Etiquettes de Mai No2. These papers are so wonderfully summery:

I love the Urbaine range especially, I think it is just fab for teen boy pages, like these three layouts

I love mixing it with Hambly products, like on this page. The Rouge De Garance on this page is a 6x12 sheet, Daphnis et Chloe No10

And the Aile ou Fleur range is utterly beautiful too. I love that this works with such a huge range of themes, girls, boys, nature and even, ahem, monkeys! By the way - Firkin' is used around here to mean scratching (see this site for more Derbyshire slang!).

This page uses Aile ou Fleur, coupled with papers from Autumn Leaves (heart frame) and Jenni Bowlin (red ledger):

As you can see, I am starting to work my way through photographing my pile of projects!
