PI Teaser Day

Happy Memorial Day!!! I hope everyone is enjoying a little down time, and remembering to thank those that risk their lives to keep us safe!

Today is our Pure Innocence Teaser Day, and I know you guys get as excited as I do about the new PI’s!

Cart Full of Friends is one of the new PI sets we’ll be releasing, and she comes complete with 3 sentiments and two “friends” for her wagon. We’ll demo on Teaser day how to add her friends to her wagon!

Isn’t she so sweet with her giant lollipop?? Lollipop Girl comes with this main image and 6 sentiments! Such a sweet all occasion set, and these girls are just such a breeze to work with. Watercoloring, Copics, just plain in ink, you CAN’T go wrong!

I think this is my fave PI this month. She’s called Mud Buddies! She comes with two dit piles, a flower patch and 2 sentiments. LOVE this set! I’m seeing lots of tags made for gifts of herbs for friends, or around any flower pot or gift from the garden. And I happen to know the DT has some amazing creative ideas for her as well!

Fred Bear & the Butterfly

I am SERIOUSLY in love with this particular image. It’s the image that made me fall in love with Fred, and I’m thrilled to get to stamp with him! Fred Bear & the Butterfly will be released on June 2nd with a boatload of other goodness, so make sure to save the date!

Using a perfect paper panel, I stamped Fred and some random butterflies and colored them in using Copics and Spicas. I couldn’t NOT use the new Fresh Cut Grass Die-namics die releasing on June 2nd, I’m in LOVE with it! And once you’ve experienced felt grass, well, there’s no going back…

To add a little visual interest to the butterflies, two of which I popped up, I added little butterfly trail marks. I felt the card was missing something, and these little dots did the trick for me!

Baby Makes Three

Happy Saturday! I’m back with a project I created using Baby Makes Three and our new Sunsine and Fresh Cut Grass Die-namics, all releasing on June 2nd.

I decided to keep it simple using some Fossil card stock, but of course had to incorporate the Cloud Trio Die-namics and felt! I finished it off with Copics and a Girly Button. SWEET!

Here’s a close up of the new family. The look on the Papa Birds face is DARLING!

Baby Makes 3, Thanks a Bunch and What a Day

Today we are previewing 3 new sets, Baby Makes Three, Thanks a Bunch (May’s Triple Scoop set) and What a Day. I’ll refresh you with the FREEZE Frames on these three sets!

Baby Makes Three is the newest set by Amanda Baird, and works in conjunction with Love Birds. Isn’t this the cutest little family!! There are such sweet sentiments in this MINI set, and the image is just the right size to easily (and quickly) add some color. This set has 4 sentiments AND a stamp to add in height/weight details as well!

Think of the fun birth announcements you can create. And what better gift to a mom-to-be than making her handcrafted birth announcements!

Thanks a Bunch is our current Triple Scoop set, but will be released on its own, and we couldn’t be happier. The set was a concept by Joanne, and I think it’s brilliant!

There are 5 large Thank You options, and 15 “for” options. Seriously necessary.

Thank You’s are one of the most needed cards, and this set makes it SO easy to have JUST the right way to say thanks, for almost every occasion. Brilliant.

What a Day is a stand alone set that also works with Make the Date. Using our signature font, you now have days of the week and several ways to customize cards, pages, invitations (works great with Invitation Only!)

More Fun with Die-namics

Two posts in one day, can you believe it?

I have been having so much fun with our new Die-namics, and wanted to show some fun and simple ways to use them.

First up is a super simple card using Fresh Cut Grass Die-namics, Grow Love, Sheltering Tree, Cork, Summer and Earth Girl (releasing June 2nd) Buttons.

With the school year end just around the corner, and Brianna looking ahead at her SENIOR year in High School (This CAN NOT be happening) I wanted to create a little wall hanging to remind her how full of talent and amazing she really is!

I started with a chipboard scallop square and used the Sunshine die to really accentuate the sentiment and feeling of this wall hanging piece.  I used a quote from Clearly Sentimental about Emerson, my VERY favorite one ever.  Of course I used Take Note, I’m totally in love with it right now, and then ran the sun center through my Xyron and coated it with Glitzy Glitter.

I LOVE how the scale of Sunshine Die-namics completely fits the scale of our clouds, so they can easily be combined and work beautifully together.  Cause you know, you can’t have a perfect sky without Sunshine…

Next up I created a simple card using Costumes from Wonderland and our Jumbo Ric Rac Die-namics Die.

Here’s a close up of the Ric Rac after I’ve used the Ribbon RE:Creations Grosgrain Texture Board.

Doesn’t this look EXACTLY like ribbon!  Thank Jody of course, since ribbon is truly her addiction, Ribbon RE:Creations are her brainchild, and trust me, there will be more coming!

I certainly couldn’t create a graduation project for Brianna without creating one for Emma!  I wanted something simple, yet textured and bold, and I am so happy with how this turned out.  Graphic is not normally my style, but I really love this.  The photo certainly doesn’t do it justice!

Here’s a close up of the stars, I covered three with glitzy glitter, and then used the Grosgrain Texture Board on the other two to add depth.  Isn’t this a cool effect!

Oh I’m so excited!!!!
