A message from Layle:

Friends - I’m so very sorry that I won’t be seeing you at the store in a few weeks. The health and safety of everyone involved is extremely important to me. I feel strongly that it’s my responsibility to not fly during this time and potentially expose myself and you to the spread of the Coronavirus. I hope that you, your family, friends & loved ones stay healthy & take care of yourselves. Layle XOXO

Hi everyone, I'm Dyan Reaveley, the signature designer and creator of Dylusions products. I am a Yorkshire born and bred Brit who spends most of her time on the opposite side of the pond. I own a teaching studio and store in Harrogate, North Yorkshire, which is fabulously run by my son, Our Ben. I have four, grown up children, and the most gorgeous granddaughter in the world. I have a partner...The babe of Deliciousness. I am also owned by the grumpiest cat ever. My hobbies consist of art journaling and Northern Soul. If I'm not doing one I am doing the other.

To say I'm crazy about this collection would be an understatement! As many of you know, I don't typically do paper craft...but this sweet collection just called to me! Maggie Holmes for Crate Paper just released the Magical Forest collection by American Crafts, and every piece of ephemera to washi tape is perfection (stamps, chipboard, stickers, etc)!
