Little Miss Charlie by Shimelle Laine

A new month brings a new focus on the JBS Inspiration blog. For September, our designers will be sharing their favorite new and classic JBS products and inspiring us to mix them creatively. First up is Shimelle Laine who writes, "The way newer collections coordinate and breathe life into the existing product range is one of the very reasons I love Jenni's products so! No one does lovely red papers like JBS, and there's always something new to make them mix and match with ease. The black polka dot paper here is one of the new cardstock weight papers from Haven, making it perfect for a background, while the other patterned papers are the older lighter weight that makes them great for layering and dying with walnut ink. I love the simplicity of the silhouette stamped on a tag. Beautiful silhouettes are a real JBS signature, and I love how they are always so clean they can be mixed and matched, like the little girl and the butterflies, both on the same page."

"Little Miss Charlie is actually a toddler now! But she was still teeny when I snapped this picture while catching up with her mum, one of my oldest friends from school. Seeing them both was a special treat indeed."

Thanks for the inspiration Shimelle!
