Special Guest Sponsor

Our special guest sponsor this month will be sure to spark your creativity
with their beautifully designed paper collections, beautiful bloom sets,
custom stamps, pretty embellishments and much more.

We are so happy to have them be a part of our sponsor lineup!

Let's learn a little more about 49 AND MARKET through their own words:

49 and Market is your premium scrapbooking wholesaler of paper and products.  We are a B-to-B store that sells exclusively to retail businesses. With 15 years experience in the scrapbooking business, we have seen many trends come and go. We believe that beauty transcends the test of time. Our collections range from shabby chic to boho fabulous or romantically vintage, but in the end we believe the allure of 49 and Market products will appeal to those seeking quality.

You can find more about each designer showcased below as well as 
all the 49 and Market product line by visiting the following links:


We are thrilled to have 5 very talented artists from the 49 and Market DT
showcasing their fabulous products on gorgeous creations
that have been inspired by our July Main Challenge

 Anguree: I was inspired by this photo of my husband and I walking on the BEACH. We asked our wedding photographer, Jan Theron, to do a shoot to celebrate our 14th wedding anniversary. Since our wedding photos were also at the beach, it was the perfect setting. We love taking walks along the ocean when we are on holidays and gathering SEASHELLS, just like the ones I've used to decorate my page. I think this photo illustrates the free and beautiful childlike happiness we still share. 

Anguree, who is also one of our More Than Words designers, has combined a gorgeous background paper from the Sweet Reflections collection, as seen below, along with Burlap Ribbon and lots of flowers including Garden Seeds - Bluebell, Blossom Blends - Linen and Botanicals Potpourri - Snow.


 Hetty: My inspiration for this layout came mainly from the fantastic BEACH themed papers from 49 and Market. Combined with the criteria for this month's challenge, the gorgeous beachy colours and of course the SEASHELLS chipboard, this layout came together pretty easily.

On her beautiful page, Hetty used the Sand and Sea paper collection and decorated with 6x6 Archive Board - Escape, coordinating chipboard designed by
The Dusty Attic to go along with the 49 and Market collections.

 Julia: The word BEACH inspired me to create this layout of a great Summer holiday memory by the sea. Children are definitely the best part of our lives and we always want to keep the most memorable moments alive in our hearts. This time that we spent at the beach, I was able to take this gorgeous photo to make the moment last. For the creative challenge I added some SEASHELLS and many other sea elements.

Julia's layout is stunning, and no doubt, thanks to the fact that she used many of the Sand and Sea Layered Embellishments to decorate it. These plastic stickers are perfect to bring layering and depth to any page. And of course, all 49 and Market flowers are a must have! On this page we see the Vintage Shades Botanical Blends - Sage, Botanical Blends - Navy and Vintage Shades Cluster - Yellow.



 Pascale: When I saw this challenge, I immediately thought of the Coral BEACH that I visited last month in Ireland. It is a small beach where the sand is made of tiny pieces of coral. I have even added some coral bits on my layout along with real SEASHELLS for the creative challenge.

The beautiful papers that Pascale used for this page come from the Captured Adventures line, the 12x12 as well as the coordinating 6x6 version. 49 and Market has a vast product line including many wonderful stamp sets, some of which have been designed by Pascale herself. On this page, she used
the Tickets and Numbers and the Formula stamp sets.


Tina: The word BEACH brings much inspiration since we live in Sunny Queensland and our weekends often consist of a trip to the beach. The beach brings about a sense of freedom and relaxation. It is also the time when I take copious amounts of photos and long walks along the shoreline collecting pieces to help embellish those 'beachy' pages that I create. I have used a photo of my son fishing for the first time many years ago. I included in the layout cheesecloth representing the water and waves along with a handful of SEASHELLS found at one of our favorite holiday spots.

Take a closer look at the gorgeous flowers that Tina used on her wonderful page. These sets are called Garden Seeds - Cotton and Seaside Blooms - Sandcastle.


And just because we cannot get enough of their stunning paper collections,
here are a few more from up close and personal.

And we have a very special treat for you... a sneak peak of their newest collection,
to be sent out to stores on August 1st... Island Paradise!
