Amber Ink ipaper: A testimonial...

We just love stuff like this.
We really do.

As excerpted from Kristin Robbins:

 My first project is Birthday Banner and Princess Wands using Amber Ink iPaper. I used Tiny Picnic Gingham Whisper and this is my  first time ever using digital paper. I am thrilled to death at how easy it was and how wonderful it was to coordinate my projects!
This year my dd chose "Princess Theme" and I went all-in (don't I every year?? We won't revisit the hours I stayed up creating Gotham City for my son in 2010). Banners are HUGE and I had just bought the Cricut Princess Party Event cartridge so of course I needed patterned paper for the banner. I ended up printing 2 sheets since the first sheet wasn't enough... that's right... I made the cardstock banner a bit too big (and we ALL know I had enough cardstock to make my banner 4 times larger!) but I just went to my printer and out pops another perfectly coordinating gingham patterned paper. The cricut did all the work after that, of course. I just assembled and bam, the banner was done!
Well, then a few days passed and I was putting together the "goodie tins" for the girls (the boys will be knights and they get silver tins... I know, cute) and realized that the cartridge had wands in it. Well, it's a princess party and I wanted wands. I showed my dd and so I started cutting out the wands. The "coordinating layer" *had* to match my banner since it will all be on display on the same table. Out came a couple more sheets of pattern paper! SO EASY!!! 
I am completely sold on digital paper now.
And we're completely sold on Kristin.


Wanna see?




Happy Bday dd.

Oh my. I am a gingham lover. I'm not particularly into pink, but this Kristin..she could turn my head with this sort of pretty!

OH Julia, Isn't it lucky we have other gingham colors :) xoxo

P.S. Kristin is a complete visionary and I adore this, as an adult and as a kid who's mom always went all out.
