Hello and welcome to the Your Next Stamp August New Release Blog Hop!!! August is our birthday month and we are having a month long celebration with store specials and a second release-Woohoo!
The hop starts right here on my blog, so welcome everybody! FOUR random winners will receive a $10 YNS gift certificate, but you must comment on all of the DT blogs for your chance to win!
And now, onto my projects:
First up I have a couple of journaling cards that I made for Project Life using 2 of the new die sets – Journal Card Bracket Insert and Journal Card Scallop Insert respectively:
For both cards, the patterned paper bases were cut with the 3x4 die from the Journaled Weekly Die Set, then I topped them with layers cut with the new die sets. For the scalloped one, I simply typed on the word Sauce! with my typewriter.
The words on the kraft layers could hang off the top edge of the cards if I just cut up to the sides of the words, but I chose to leave the excess attached for a different look. I’m sure that’s clear as mud – we’ll have a video up soon that shows how to use these die sets. Watch for the links on the YNS Facebook page.
This next project is a birthday card for my hubby:
Yes, it’s on Dec. 14, so I’m pretty early, which is ironic considering the name of the stamp set is Overdue! I cut the library card, heart and faux washi tape with dies from the new Clip It die set and finished it off with a little twine.
Karen is also offering some fabulous Hop Specials at the YNS Store! Any orders over $25.00 will receive a FREE YNS Birthday Stamp!!! Plus, YNS is having a month long sale so make sure you take advantage of these special offers!
