Have you all had a nice Labor Day Weekend? We have been busy (finishing ) moving Meghan and cleaning both rooms for Eloise and Sophie to settle in. The first time since 1989 that we’ve had a separate bedroom for each kid. Wow – Meghan is teasing me about “empty nest syndrome”. Seeing as how Eloise is only five…it will be awhile.
In meantime – I hope you have enjoyed all the My Favorite Things Teaser Time posts. Tuesday, September 3rd in the New Product Tour! A super exciting day when all the new products for the month are revealed. And, boy oh boy, do they have a great release for you!
Here are two cards both featuring new products. I thought it would be fun to create two “Hello” cards in two completely different styles. I juggle my style between “clean and graphic” and “fun and cute”. Both are very appealing to me. So, let’s go.
This first card is definitely in the Clean and Graphic category. It’s a simple card that you could create in about ten minutes. First, I cut the top with a Die-namics from the new Blueprints 7 set. (Darn, I really love all the coordinating sets in the Blueprints Category!) Next, I stamped the chevrons using Lisa Johnson’s new Textile Backgrounds set. Yummy! I also used all three of the new ink colors: Limeade, Cotton Candy, and Steel Grey along with Blu Raspberry. Love the new colors. To finish this card, I just machine stitched the center of the chevrons and adhered the panel to my card base. Quick and easy.
This little cutie just screams Fun and Cute, right? I adore the Pure Innocence stamps; this is the brand new It’s A Sign set. I stamped and colored and die cut and matted and ribboned…and generally had a ball creating this one. Hee, hee. This is a great set – it has tons of sentiments that fit inside the little chalkboard frame. Sigh. So cute.
Okay, be sure to check out the My Favorite Things Blog to catch all the news about the Product Tour. Prepare to grab another cup of coffee and stay glued to your computer! Lol!
