La-La Land's New Release Blog Hop

If you're looking for the Your Next Stamp Challenge #7, it's the post directly below this one. Thanks!

* * * * * * * * * *


Happy New Year! Welcome to my stop on the Into the New Year with the New Releases Blog Hop! Today we would like to introduce you to NINE new images from La-La Land Crafts! This is a sneak peak Blog Hop as these stamps will not be available until January 20th. But, here is some GREAT news for you: All the stamps are already available to pre-order in our online store, so make sure to pre-order yours!

If you came here from Cheryl's blog, then you're on the right track. If you just happened on my blog, you'll want to go back and start at the La-La Land Crafts blog because every stop on the hop has some candy to give away!

My blog candy is the adorable Cupid Maya:

To be entered to win, please leave a comment on this post. We would also really appreciate it if you could spread the word and mention our Blog Hop on your blogs! I will pick a winner at random from all comments on Tuesday, January 12 at about 8 p.m. Hawaii time. Please only one comment per person. Just a little reminder that the winner will have to wait until after the stamps are released on January 20th for the prize to be mailed.

Just in case you get lost along the way, here's the Hop order again:
Now, without further ado, here is my project using Cupid Maya:

MayaCupid1
I have a TON of 4" square coasters in my stash so I got out a couple and made a coaster frame perfect for a picture from Valentine's day!

I colored Maya with Copics, cut out with a circle Nestabilities die and set aside. I edged both coasters with a Copic marker before covering all sides with some really old Daisy Bucket Designs patterned papers and sanding off the overhanging edges and corners. The frame portion is a Quickutz Revolution die and there's a bit of white cardstock in there to serve as a template for cropping the picture later on. For the Maya side, I used a sketch from Allsorts and a Papertrey Ink sentiment.

Lastly I added some half pearls, punched holes with my Crop-A-Dile, and tied the coasters together with bits of ribbon. I hope you like it!

Your next stop is one of our incredibly talented guest designers, Pam! Have fun on the rest of the Hop!!
