Round Robin: Garden Gate

It is time for  week TWO of the SnickerdoodleDesigns Round Robin. This week is a collab with Mel, of Mel Designs. This collection is gorgeous, a little vintage, and perfect for all us with a little love for our gardens.

Here is what Karen has to say about this stunning new collection:

Just one of the many great things about theStudio is the number of fabulous designers we have here.  Because of that, having to choose a collaboration partner for Round Robin Week 2 was difficult for me. I thought it would fun to work with a designer that I have not worked with before.  Mel Designs immediately came to mind.  I love Mel’s style, her fabulous sense of color, and her unique perspective. More often than not, whenever Mel releases a new kit, I look at it and 1) wish I had designed it myself, 2) have the same subject matter in mind for a new kit, or 3) have already started a kit with the theme she is using.  I thought working with Mel would solve all of those issues for me since we would be working on the same kit at the same time! It has been delightful to work with Mel, and she is as lovely a person as she is a designer.

Garden Gate is the result of our efforts. It is full of rustic charm and unique elements (many from my own front yard.  This kit was designed to remind us to: “Step into the garden, lift your face to the sun, and just breathe.  It will help you remember all that is beautiful and right in the world.” – unknown
