we are getting SO CLOSE

to our release day!  Oh my am I ever excited!  Tomorrow I will share the links to all of the designers who have helped us out this month.  I am so grateful for them!

Today I have two designers showing off a fun new die.  I asked two girls because  this die has a lot of possibilities - and they have completely different styles.  enjoy... 


JJ Bolton
Julia Stainton

As luck would have it - Laurie and Emily both created a card using this fabulous die!

Isn't this card so beautiful???  LOVE how the vellum softens the bold background paper.


I love the bent papers...it really adds great texture to this super cute card!!


Thursday is our design team blog hop - along with our new designers - woohoooo!

THANK YOU for joining us this month - it means more than you may know :)

  29. Have you ever considered about including a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is valuable and everything. But think about if you added some great graphics or video
    clips to give your posts more, "pop"! Your content is excellent but with pics and videos, this site could certainly be one of the
    most beneficial in its field. Wonderful blog!
