Neat & Tangled Release Week – Day 4

Another amazing day with new Neat & Tangled products. Today’s stamp set is a favorite of mine & I’m sure it will be getting a lot of love in my craft room – Handstitched. This adorable set comes with matching dies and has such a nice collection of images and sentiments.

I decided to make a super simple notecard set using the images – I had my mom in mind when I created these as she is an avid quilter. I kept it simple to let the sweet, stitched images shine. The cards are 3 3/4″ square.

Neat & Tangled Release Week – Day 2

Hello! I am so bummed I missed day 1 of the Neat & Tangled release – it was amazing, right?? Great projects from the design team. But, I’m here for day 2 sharing projects with 2 new sets – Life is Beautiful & My Sunshine. These stamps are both great – such sweet images in Life is Beautiful & My Sunshine features Danielle’s stunning handwriting. My Sunshine is the July/August incentive stamp – for more details check out this post.

Onto the projects…I kept things super simple for the Life is Beautiful set – I wanted to focus on the adorable little potted flowers. I did some simple coloring with Copics & popped the cream panel up on kraft with foam squares. I just adore the tiny images.

Next up is My Sunshine. I decided to make a Project Life 3″x4″ filler card using the sentiment. The background was made using the Sunburst stamp. I stitched through each ray to add some interest to the card. I then stamped and fussy-cut the sentiment and popped it up with foam. This will add such a bright pop of color to a summer scrapbook page!

Head over to the Neat & Tangled blog and comment for your chance to win Life is Beautiful! And make sure to check out all the gorgeous DT projects as well. All stamps will be available to purchase on the Neat & Tangled site from Friday. Hope you have a great week & happy shopping :-)

Elle’s Studio July Reveal

July already??? This is just plain crazy. The year is seriously flying by. We are having a scorcher of a summer so far here in Zurich and I really hope it lasts – often we get a very warm spell early on and then rain for most of July just in time for my little one’s daycare to close!! Fingers crossed our heat wave lasts, though minus a few degrees for me & my pregnant belly :-)

EllesStudio-JulyKit
Today is all about summer for the Elle’s Studio July reveal. This kit is amazing – full of great journaling cards, bright colors and perfect accents. I really enjoyed working with it. I am working on a little 8×8 album to try to get through some of my photos from last year and the kit worked perfectly to help with this summery page. I want to keep this scrapbook super simple – something I can actually finish – so the page was easy & quick.

I used papers from the Let’s Eat collection and created a simple edge with the reverse of the striped paper. I stitched along the paper edge to create some interest. The amazing vellum stars are included in the kit (I adore these!!) and the white acrylic star is part of an add-on that can’t be missed! The colors from the kit coordinate perfectly with the paper from the Let’s Eat collection, so this page came together in a snap!

Next up, a card (shocker, I know!)

The paper is another sheet from the Let’s Eat collection and the border is actually part of that extra bit on 12×12 paper, but I thought it made the perfect border for a card. The vellum star, banner and tag are all from the July kit and the stars are the Acyclic Stars add-on.

This month’s stamp set, printables and cut files are all amazing too.
