Welcome to our two-week sneak peek at products that Karen Foster Design will debut at the CHA 2012 Winter show. To celebrate this release the Design Team will be hosting a giveaway contest on our blogs where you can enter to win prize packs that match each day’s theme(s).

The details:
To enter your name in the drawings, all you need to do is leave a comment on this blog post. You don't need to comment on every blog post to win, but you can increase your chances of winning by leaving comments on each of the Design Team member’s blogs every day during our sneak peek event. Enter up to once per day per blog! As always, Karen Foster Design welcomes international entries. Comments close at 12 Noon on Friday January 27th EST. Winners will be posted here on Monday, January 30, 2012.

The prizes will be hidden on the blog posts - not even the Design Team members know where they are! A winner will be selected at random from the comments on one post per day. So the more you comment, the better chance you have of winning, since you never know where those prize packages are hidden!

But wait, there’s more! To add to the excitement, there are more prizes! On Saturday four additional winners will be chosen at random to receive bonus prize packs of five stamp sets each. How awesome is that? Good luck!

today the team is showing two themes: Wedding & Prom
i was assigned the Wedding theme, and have to admit, it was one of my favorites to work with. the projects came together so effortlessly, thanks to the variety of embellishments there were to coordinate with the papers. there is just the right amount of subtle color and sparkle in that oversized stacked sticker piece i used for the title to fancy the layout up a bit.

my new favorite embellishments are the intricate cut Wedding THIN-ments. it's that diamond ring embellishment you see on the lower left of the layout. they are brads made from a very thin metal. they are pliable if you want to make them more dimensional you can bend them. looooove them.

on this card you can see another one of the THIN-ment brads--the present. they add quite a bit of pizazz to a project with very little effort.

and lastly, i used the collection to print out the wedding vows i wrote and spoke to my husband 16 years ago. i opened my word processing program, inserted a text box, typed the vows within the text box, cut the wedding patterned paper down to 8 1/2 x 11 and ran it through my printer. then, i put it in the frame and added embellishments on top. if you want all the elements within the frame, you could do the same thing, but use a shadow box instead.
