Hello MLS fans!! Today we pleased to share some Oasis inspiration from designer Ro Philippsen. The Oasis collection is beautiful mix of spring colors and Asian flair. What we love most about this collection is that while it does have an Asian feel, it's easy to create many different themed projects and layouts using Oasis. A fan favorite are the cardstock stickers that coordinate with this collection.
Ro has created a beautiful family home decor project for you today.
Designer Tip: On this project I wanted to create a window, which represent the window of my soul, where I lay in the people I love. I used hinges, so that windows can actually move like real windows! Loved doing this project with the lovely collection "oasis".
Love that beautiful cherry blossom tree in the center. It really symbolizes this family's bond. Such a beautiful idea Ro!
Designer Tip: Layout:In those tags I used several layers of paper, which made the page very interesting. Also mixed cardboard with acrylic paint.
Ro Philippsen lives in Brazil with her family and teaches classes at her local scrapbook stores. for more information on Ro's classes visit her design blog.
Now before we sign off for Wednesday how about another Sneak peek of what's to come!
Hello MLS fans! Our Oasis collection is a fun Asian themed collection that is very versatile. Today Erin and Pearl are showing you some layout inspiration. Each of them is creating with our Oasis collection this month.
by Pearl Liu
Pearl shares a close look at the butterfly and bling she used.
Pearl suggests using the Slice to die cut images and add them to your pages when you don't have coordinating embellishments.
So very Grateful for you

Designers Note: In the layout titled, " My Japanese Twin " I punched some of the signature paper with a scallop circle and overlapped and popped it to emphasize the pretty pattern, add some dimension while still focusing on the simplicity of the papers.

Love those handmade embellies!
Thanks ladies for sharing your Oasis layouts with us today!
Tomorrow we have some more projects from June's Guest Designer, Vicki Boutin!
Hello MLS fans! We hope you had a great weekend! Today we are sharing some amazing 3-D inspiration from Zoe Nemburt.
Zoe is working with our Oasis collection this month and came up with an amazing project to inspire you to see this collection beyond using it for photos and cards. Let's have a look
There are so many little details here we love. First do you notice how Zoe folded the Lotus die cut cardstock to ground her scene.
Zoe was easily able to attach the paper using Glue Arts 3D Extreme Adhesive squares. We love the punched roof, handmade flowers from the Lily Pad patterned paper, the little roses and you can see from this view exactly how she folded the Lotus diecut.
The pearl doorknob is a nice touch too. We love the way she created a very sweet scene by cutting out elements of the Kyoto patterned paper
Next Zoe created a few cards and the added black cardstock in this one is lovely.
This Happy Birthday card has such a soft feel. We love the pairing of the cream cardstock and the scallops.
I don't know about you but Zoe has inspired me to get out my Oasis collection and create something this week! If you'd like to join me then post your creations to our Facebook page. If you do, I've got a few extra Oasis goodies to send you from my personal stash. I'll pick a random winner Friday! ~ Shemaine Smith
Today we are sharing some projects from Norine Borys with our Oasis collection.
This is the face of trouble
Norine shows you some fun ways to use our journaling die cuts
We love the use of mist on this card. It really adds a soft touch. To recreate this technique you simply mist the cardstock with your favorite coordinating color of mist and either air dry it or use a heat tool and then embellish.
I miss U the most
What a unique way to use our mini alphas!
Our thanks to Norine for today's inspiration!
We always love seeing your layouts and projects with our collections. If you've created something with our Oasis collection please load your project up to our Facebook page here.

Hello MLS fans. This week we are showing you more of our design team member's work from our booth at CHA. Today we have some Oasis projects created by our very own Debbie and Erin Y.
First some layouts from Debbie
Love the Prima flowers and bling.
Debbie cut out the cherry blossoms and added them in layers on this layout. Very creative.
This monochromatic layout really shines with the mix of Prima flowers and cut outs.
Next we have some cards from Erin
The lily pad stamps on craft paper are beautiful.
The pop of black on this card is nice.
and she did so on this card as well.
