Manifest a Masterpiece With This Artistic Scrapbook Layout

“The true secret of happiness lies in taking a genuine interest in all the details of daily life.”

This quote by William Morris, a celebrated designer, poet and craftsman from the Art Nouveau era, exemplifies the latest launch that does just that — accentuate your photos of everyday life. From special moments and memories with friends to family get-togethers, highlighting heritage albums and more, the brand-new Art Nouveau collection features the international “new art” movement’s nature motifs, ornamental stylings and sinuous, organic lines to give a timeless presence to your photos. (P.S. Some of the papers within the Art Nouveau Paper Pack pay homage to designs by William Morris, too!) Ready to see what its elegance is all about?
