This has been such a fun hop already so far. It sounds like you are really loving everything you see! Thanks so much. Before I get to the nitty gritty...I forgot to mention yesterday that beginning Saturday, June 22nd through Sunday, June 30th I will be away on vacation and orders placed during that time will be fulfilled after I return the following week. This week, I am planning to get every order placed through Thursday out in Friday's mail. Thanks for understanding!
Ok, so let's get back to it!
I'd like to recap the products we're releasing this week :) They're fab so let's have another look!
Our Pieced Chevron Die is so exciting to play with! It cuts this intricate frame just slightly smaller than your A2 card base. The best part is all the pieces it cuts at the same time: pieced chevrons, diamonds and triangles in two sizes. You can created chevron borders in different colors and patterns, use the frame as a card front overlay or use the other pieces for a million different things. You get real bang for you buck with this die! I LOVE IT! You can see projects made using this die by visiting our store page HERE.
Our Fanfare Scalloped Border Die is so unique and truly pretty. It looks great alone on a card or gorgeous with multiple layers which just happen to fit together perfectly. I like that you can opt to poke out the inner pieces for an open die or keep them in place for a totally different look! Check out the product page HERE for some lovely samples using this die.
A fabby stamp set created to perfectly coordinate with our Connected Circles Die (previously released). It contains really cool and trendy circle stamps and word circle stamps. Each word circle has a coordinating, over sized sentiment in a font that you went crazy for in our previously released Darling Diamonds Set so we did it again! Now all three of these products coordinate! These stamps are beautiful on their own but are even more fun when stamped on our Connected Circles Die. Love the sayings! See the product page HERE for great samples using this set!
Our Stitched Mats: Circles is a set of 7 nested dies and the newest addition to our Stitched Mats Collection which you've been waiting oh so patiently for! This set features an exciting new twist! Not only does it cut Stitched Circles in varying sizes but it leaves a a stitched lined around the negative of the die as well. It's an incredibly fun addition to this product. An absolute must have for your collection!! HERE is a link so you can see these dies in action!
I have been wanting to bring you tag dies for a very long time but I really wanted to do something unique and never seen before in our crafty little world and I think we've done that! These are really like little mini cards and tags all in one. Once you cut your Folding Tag, fold it along the perforated line! The front and the inside can both be embellished and they've been designed so that a gift card fits perfectly inside! I think they're fab! I like the Original with it's plain flap (or straight edge flap) because it can used for anything. But the Scallops are really cool because it just adds a bit of feminine!
Here are a couple of projects I made to show you just how awesome these are! Do you make a lot of tags? I do! And I always feel like they NEVER get turned over by the recipient to see what I wrote. Now they don't have to turn them over! These guys just beg to be opened!
I brought a friend of mine a plant for hosting a BBQ on Memorial Day and of course I had to add a tag with a thank you note inside! I tied a ribbon around the plant and then tied the tag to the ribbon. Here's a closer look...
This is the Folding Tag Die - Original and I used the diamond pieces from my Pieced Chevron Die to create this little flower. The sentiment is from our Sentiment Flag Additions Stamp Set (currently on sale for only $15) and you can see on the bottom I added some scoring. This looked so nice going to the BBQ for my friend! I kind wanted to keep it, LOL!
Here is a tag I made with our Folding Tag Die - Scallops. I die cut this tag from patterned paper and embellished the front with our Mini Pinwheel Die and added my sentiment to a Stitched Circle. The sentiment is from our Coffee Cozy set. I don't know who this will go to but I might have a hard time parting with it because it is soooo purty in person! I love it!
Here's another tag made with the Scallops version of our Folding Tag Die. This time I combined bright green card stock and patterned paper. It's easy to do. I made two cuts and just cut the patterned one at the perforated line and glued it to the inside. I like the little pattern peeking out. I stamped the front flap with the woodgrain spot from our new Spot On Set and added my gift card to the inside with a glue dot to hold it in place. I'm holding the entire tag closed with the twine I wrapped around it. As you can see this went to Dad! I die cut our Dad Word Die from white card stock and clipped it to the twine with a mini clothespin. Love this!!!
I have one more tag for you! This one is made using the Folding Tag Die - Original. Once again, I used pieces from my Pieced Chevron Die - the triangles! I just stacked them and added a sentiment stamped on a vellum scrap. The sentiment is from our Rainbows & Clouds Sentiment Stamp Set.
I have to say, this is really a great batch of goodies and judging from your comments and orders you think so too. Thanks!!
