Farewell, Fresh Fig!

Dear Fresh Fig,

I’ve only recently recognized my love for purple tones, so I’m a little late showing my fondness for you. For that, I’m so sorry. Your rich, deep tones have always brought a sophisticated charm to my projects, and I am happy I could spend some time with you over the past two years. I am a little sad to see you go, but please accept that you opened my eyes to some new color tones.

I wish you well!

If you aren’t ready to let go, this is a great time to stock up on some of your favorite Fresh Fig  products – papers, inks, ribbons, etc. Once these items are gone, they are gone – so don’t wait.

  1. Suzie Patt Cullen

    Thanks for your memories and cards made with Fresh Fig, Brian. I always appreciate your “color combos” and take “screenshots” with my phone so they are easily accessible?

  2. Fresh Fig was never a favorite of mine, but I like your pretty cards in this good-bye parade. It looks great with the color combos you provided. Have a nice day!

  3. Regals are my favorite, so will miss Fresh Fig! Always love your card parades Brian!

  4. Such fabulousness from Fresh Fig! Thanks for sharing!

  5. This color served me well. I am not sure it will be as missed since I have several purples to keep me happy!

  6. I too was a tad bit late joining in the Purple Fun-Times….but better late then NEVER. Your color combination and cards are FANTASTIC. Thanks for sharing all of these cards with us.

  7. Yep. Will definitely miss this one.

  8. Fresh Fig is kinda like Tranquil Tide to me . There are certain card scenes they just fit as far as color comfort . I just have not used it much (Sorry FIG !!)

  9. Your cards would never indicate that you were less than 100% committed to Fresh Fig. Each of the in-colors always has a particular place in that season’s designs; you managed to create examples that show FF to its best advantage. Great line-up.

  10. Yep, this one will be missed!

  11. Lovely color, sorry to see it go.
    I love your color combinations on all of these amazing cards Brian, thank you for sharing them again today.
    Sending farewell hugs to Fresh Fig.

  12. I love these cards, especially the unicorn and magician (I have 20 great-nieces and nephews who enjoy these images). “You Are One of a Kind” really struck me and I resurrected “Lovely Wishes” out of my garage sale box. Thanks for helping me realize it has 3 great sentiments!
