Today, I'm sharing projects using the new Laurels set. I love this set so, so much. I love the leaves and the coordinating dies. Oh, and the sentiments. Oh, and the most perfect bow ever. Oh, and just absolutely everything about it!
I love the contrast of the feminine laurel stamps with the Maple Woodgrain paper. :) Seriously, makes me so happy!

I loved this sentiment, the font is adorable! For some reason, I just saw a starry banner in it. Again, I have this thing for stars... :) The polka dot background is stamped with You Said It, Sister.
That washi tape - it's Bella Blvd. If you haven't tried Bella Blvd washi tape, you must! It's perfect.

I love these little owls so much! I love giving Halloween treats so I made so cute little tags. I stamped the owls and speech bubbles and them masked them and stamped the polka dots from You Said It, Sister in a light grey ink.
I’m popping in again to share another Avery Elle set that
I am super excited about. Meet Laurels - Jamie is previewing it today on the Avery Elle blog so I
figured I could share it here too! Hopefully that's okay! :)
If you saw Build A Banner yesterday, you know I'm now smitten with two-tone stamped images, and if you follow me at all, you know I have a thing for bows. When I sent Jamie my idea for the banner set, I also included a few other requests... which she executed to perfection!
Along with the two-tone stamped bow, I begged for symmetrical laurel branches, with symmetrical coordinating dies. To go along with it all, flowers seemed to compliment the set perfectly. Oh yeah, and the sentiments and build-able and match Oh Happy Day.

This is a great set because it's full of miscellaneous sayings that sometimes you just need, but maybe you don't need a full set of... :)
When I saw this set, I knew I wanted to use the great coach sentiment. I had a few ideas but then my 3 year old daughter pulled off the long stamp (which I think is super cool by the way) and was playing with it - she's super helpful. She had it curved and it hit me it's perfect to create a baseball! :) LIGHTBULB (in a Gru voice!)
I’m popping in really quick to share an Avery Elle set that
I am super excited about. Introducing
Build A Banner - Jamie is previewing it today on the Avery Elle blog so I
figured I could share it here too! Hopefully that's okay! :)
I’m obsessed with banners, I love them!A while back, I wanted a two-tone banner, so
I sent my request to Jamie… and this is what she came up with!
It couldn’t be more perfect. I'll be back later in the week with a video of how it works and some examples, but for now - here's some a picture of the images put together!
Don't forget about the matching dies and cut files!
I will be sharing why I love Avery Elle cut files very soon!!!
I used Weather Through and The Sweet Life to create this card. To create this card, I die cut my favorite Die-Namics notebook die and stamped and masked the clouds. To fill them in with color, I used my ink dauber. :) I've had some questions about this so I'll try to post a video soon!
To create this card, I stamped the bows first, then I added the string then lightbulbs. To add color to the light bulbs, I masked the outside of them and used a sponge dauber and an ink pad to add color! I use this technique a lot because of the neat texture it adds to the images!
When was the last time you created something Just For Fun? I'll be the first to admit I rarely do and sometimes that really gets to me. It's easy to get so wrapped up in Design Team commitments and deadlines that crafting for the purpose of having fun can be hard to do.
Well, I have a Just For Fun (JFF) card to share with you today!
I've had the new Lawn Fawn release since the day it was available, I just haven't had much time to use it! So, it was definitely time to get it inked up!
I started with my polaroid from Say Cheese. I love critter stamps and the polaroid stamp allows me to scale down the size of my scene to something very manageable. If you don't have this polaroid stamp, you really do need it! I stamped the skunk from Lawn Fawn's Into the Woods and then added color with an ink dauber and masking. Once I had my skunk all colored, I masked him and stamped the clouds as bushes. Since I wanted to add some texture, I kissed those same clouds with Avery Elle's Texture Tiles Be Cool. Then, I added some blue to the sky with my dauber as well.
Thanks for stopping by and sharing a part of your day with me!
I love building patterns and shapes so Trendy Triangles was very fun for me to play with to create my card. I stamped the solid
triangle repeatedly to create a hexagon shape. Then I used the
"arrowhead" to create the chevron pattern. The sentiment is from Words to Live By.
