October Release Day 2

Well, hi there!!! It's already been a wild ride this week! Let's get right into day 2 of our new release.

Did you visit us yesterday? What's your favorite from this release? Can't decide?

Well, maybe my video will help you ;). I've put together a very chatty video for you showing you almost everything we're releasing in the store this week. I say almost because SOMEHOW crazy-pants me forgot to show you our Merry & Bright Holiday Greeting Die. DUH!!!!!!'s our video and I hope you'll find it informative and fun. I had fun making it. There's even a surprise appearance from my furry office helper, LOL!

Here is another look at the graphics of everything we've just released in the store.

First up are a couple of new items for Autumn - well,'s only October afterall!

These goodies are simply GORGEOUS!! You will love die cutting our stitching leaves and stamping them with their coordinating greetings. See the image below which shows you which greetings lines up with which stamp. Er meh gerd - I love these perfectly oversized leaves!!!!

Quite possibly the end to your Christmas Stamp collection! (I kid!) But really, these set is gorgeous and versatile. Use these greetings to make beautiful holiday photo cards, turn some of the sentiments into ornaments and oh so much more!!!! Each one is hand illustrated and just so flippin' pretty!

Use the Oh My Ornaments Die Set all by its lonesome and it will ROCK your holiday card making OR use it in conjunction with the All The Christmas You'll Ever Need Stamps and really bring this die set to life. My fave part of it is the stitched ornament hanger with bow that just cuts that detail into your paper giving your ornaments a decorative but lifelike feel!

Um, WOW!!! Loving these holiday icon silhouettes with the greetings already in them! How pretty are these AND you can use the coordinating die set below to cut these shapes out and make instant, pretty but SUPER-EASY gift tags because of the little hangers we've included in the die design. This can be easily snipped off with scissors so you can just use the focal image on a card front and more. The choice is yours and you know I like options!! :)

The Ornamental Christmas Dies can also be used on their own with patterned paper for even faster gift tags and not to mention, but could be used for other projects than just strictly for the holidays. I see birthdays in there and more!!

Apparently I was obsessed with gift packaging this year because everything seems to hang, LOL!!! This is a set of Holiday Word Die Tags. They do amazing things. Snip off their hangers and use them as just focal words on cards and more. LOOOOVE THESE!!!

Oh, deer - I do love this guy - or girl. Probably girl..would you say? Either way this is a SIMPLE and fun stamp set to create with and you can pick and choose the greeting you'd like to enter into the banner. I had a blast creating with this stamp set! You will too! It's going FAST!

GAWJUS! This word greeting die cuts the negative pieces away from your card front so that the greeting is left intact and attached to your card and then leaves a border of stitching all the way around it. I think you'll love what fast and pretty holiday cards this will make for you!

This guy rocks! Use this die set along with our Triangle Treat Holder Die to make fun Santa treat containers and with a little creativity this can do so many more things like tags. Oh my word, this guy is so cute and fun!!!

How about some projects???? I think I'll share the three projects I made using our All the Christmas You'll Ever Need Stamps and Oh My Ornaments Dies.

Here I've used the more elongated of the ornament shapes. I did a little distress ink blending to create this look and then I cut three ornaments and heat embossed the largest in gold. Once I had my ornaments cut I figured out my layout and then die cut the ornament hanger and bow combo die onto my focal panel and then adhere my ornaments underneath each. This also features our Cozy Winter Wishes Stamps and Dual Dotted Rectangles Dies. I really love how this came together. :)

Here I wanted to show you how easy it is to make a family photo holiday card. I heat embossed my sentiment onto a vanilla strip cut with our Border Builders Dies and then I added a small, round ornament and ornament hanger. Isn't this sweet? Less than 5 minutes!!!

I wanted to go a little more rustic with my next card so I started with a kraft base and die cut it with our Quilted Stitched Pattern Die which I heart so much. Then, I die cut an ornament from vanilla paper and using Crayola markers I colored my sentiment, huffed on it a little and stamped and then did a little sponging with linen distressed ink for a more worn look. I added the larger ornament topper cut from gold paper and added some rustic jute twine and called it done. 

By the way, ALL of the patterned papers I'm using in this release are from my homie Vanessa's shop, Butterfly Reflections Ink. If you haven't shopped with Vanessa yet you haven't lived. Your goodies will arrive lickety-split and she has a fantastic selection of items! Check her out and tell her I sent you!

Ok, so this has been so much fun so far! I'm looking forward to tomorrow even though it's our last day of the hop. We'll see you then.

Until then to read the skinny on any of the products you're eyeing be sure to head on over to our lil' website.
