My Favorite Things Teaser Time with Laina Lamb Design

We’ve been busy behind the scenes preparing for our upcoming November 2012 Release. Please join us for the next seven days for full set reveals, Die-namics previews, and of course incredible samples from our talented Design Team.

Today we’re previewing stamps and Die-namics from the new Laina Lamb Design line at My Favorite Things!  Whether you want to create custom gift calendars, or use this stamp set for scrapbook journaling, or even as a fun background for your cards, I hope you’re excited for the new Laina Lamb Designs: Document It Calendar Basics stamp set.

You can use it alone, or pair it with the new Document It – Days and Dates

This month, Laina adds two really fun Die-namics to her Accent It collection.  Let’s take a look at the new Calendar Components and Story Starters Die-namics.  These dies are so clever!  With a single cut, you’ll get both Die-cut elements, and a fun negative element to use as well.  Here are a few tips to ensure the very best results with these two Die-namics.

  • The dies come joined by a series of thin breakway tabs.  We recommend you twist lightly to separate the dies.
  • Run the dies one at a time through your machine vertically oriented in your cutting stack. This will put the most firm pressure on each spot of the die.
  • If needed, add a shim or  use the metal adapter plate to increase the pressure on the die.

You can see a quick peek at the Calendar Components in THIS quick product video or simply click play below:

As a follow up to our recently released High-Rise Alphabet Uppercase and Lowercase, we’re excited to share the new High-Rise Numbers Die-namics. This set of nine dies measures 1.5 inches in height.

While you’re waiting for the party, you can head on over and add the Jellybean Green cardstock, buttons, felt and ribbon to your cart.  After all, the ink will be able to join them Tuesday night at 10pm!

Wish Big

At our recent release party, we had a lot of fans asking about our sweet line of à la modes.  You’ll be happy to know that two fun and fabulous à la modes will be joining us as part of our November release.  I had a little time to get to my craft desk today and I inked up the recently released Big Birthday Wishes stamp set.

My card today was created for the Hope You Can Can Cling to Up in the Air Challenge – this challenge features things that can be up in the air be it birds, planes, butterflies etc.  For me, it’s birthday balloons!   You can find all of the Hope You Can Cling to challenges on THIS forum on Splitcoaststampers.

I’ve accented with the Nightshift Navy Cardstock and Buttons.  I really do adore this color, and I’m finding navy in so many of my new patterned papers.

Lately, I’m a wee bit obsessed with the recently released Flower Medley Die-namics.   I love how easily they mix and match with an assortment of materials for a variety of looks.  I’ve added a bit of the new Hemp Cord to thread the button. 

Here are the links to the products I’ve used in my card today, but please see below for additional projects created using stamps from  à la modes collection!

I’m so excited to introduce the Beautiful Bows Die-namics. This is a six piece Die-namics which you can use to build fabulous multi-layer bows from a variety of materials such as paper, fabric or felt.

Have you tried our Metal Adaptor Plate? It helps your die-cutting machine cut more intricate designs such as the following designs from this release; Sunflower Die-namics, High-Rise Alphabet, and the Framing Flourishes Die-namics.

You’ll find that when using the adaptor plate, paper pieces in the center pop out more easily, your die-cut is more easily removed, and you’ll find the increase in pressure makes your cuts even better.

Some helpful tips include:

  • Break apart your Die-namics instead of cutting all at once to increase pressure in your machine
  • Use our metal adaptor plate for more intricate designs (or anytime you want extra pressure)
