Today I am using the awesome new Essentials Tag Die which comes with 7 pieces! Perfect to create so many different projects! I had so much fun creating a sweet and chunky mini album to document our Red Nose Pitbull Lola!

I love creating mini albums and using the Pinkfresh Studio Essentials Tag Die made it super simple to create my base pages. The stitching gives it such a nice finished look and adds that pop of interest to each page.

I used the largest die and cut out some white textured cardstock, vellum and some pattern papers from the beautiful new Days of Splendor collection from Pinkfresh Studio! This collection is gorgeous and worked well to document our sweet Lola Beans.

I love to create pages in all sizes and shapes so I used the smaller tag die and cut out more papers from Days of Splendor and some vellum. The vellum adds a nice texture to the album.

I printed a lot of my photos in black and white and and embellished around them with die cuts, chipboard and stickers from Days of Splendor.

I used some of the tags from the Days of Splendor collection as extra pages in my album. These are also great to add your journaling.

Using the Essentials Tag Die set made it super simple to create this album. I love all the details and the shaped pages. It is the perfect size and I know this set is going to be used over and over again!

I love layering the smaller tag dies on top of the larger tag dies! The florals peeking out on the sides help add interest and make you want to keep flipping the pages. Once great feature of the Essential Tag dies is that you can create windows inside the tags! Perfect for creating shaker elements or using them to frame a photo I like I did for my cover!

The Essentials Tag Die set is a must have in your stash! You will fall in love with creating these fun mini albums or using them on your cards! Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you enjoyed my album today! I would love to know if you create mini albums as well! What would you use this die set for? Let me know in the comments down below! Your next stop along the hop is Heather! Have a wonderful day!

The Stamp Market July Release

Hey friends! I wanted to share some of the awesome July release from The Stamp Market! I wanted to purchase everything this month! This month if you spend $100.00 you get a free cardstock multi pack! This goes from July 10-31st! If you love smaller cards and rainbows then this release is for you! There are also some great florals that you are going to love.

My favorite stamp set that was released this month is the Lovely Little Notes stamp set! This is a 5×7 stamp set with 7 pieces! I love the scripty and bold text in this set and can’t wait to use it! There are so many possibilities with this stamp set! I could not pick on favorite for the new dies so I am going to share 3 of them that I love!

These three die sets are going to be so fun to use and be the perfect addition to your die set stash! The Pieces of my Heart die set is going to be great for cards but I also see it used on a scrapbook layout! Using the hearts to create a bunch of hearts all over the page is going to be so fun!

The Mod Rainbow Cover Die is the perfect little rainbow die! I love the modern look of this rainbow and I rainbows are everywhere these days! My third fav die is the Retro Sunshine Cover Die! I love cover dies so much and make creating cards so quick and easy!

Make sure you head on over to The Stamp Market to see the whole July release! While you are there check out some of the little extra embellishments you can pick up like the enamel dots and clear droplets! Thanks so  much for stopping by today! I hope you all have a wonderful day!

Inky Stamper New Release

I am so excited for my friend Chelsea over at Inky Stamper! Today is the big day she opens her very own online shop with her own stamps and dies! This has been her dream for years and I am so excited to help celebrate with her today! She sent me one of her new Cicada stamp and die combo along with her Small Fry Box and Mini Double Bow Die! So fun! I created a card for today using the Cicada stamp set.

I created a scallop shaped card and used some fun papers from Doodlebug Design Simply Spring Collection. I colored in the stamped image with some Ohuhu Makers. I knew I wanted a cutesy looking bug so I decided to color the image using pinks. I love how it turned out! I cut out a speech bubble with more Doodlebug papers and stamped out one of the sentiments. To finish off the card I added some Doodlebug heart sprinkles.

Make sure to head on over to the InkyStamper Store and check out her very first release. Thank you so much for stopping by today and I hope you all have a great day!

For the Love of Cards – Clique Kits Spring Card Kit

I am back today to share a couple cards I created using the Clique Kits Spring Card kit!  This kit features the On Trend 2 collection from My Minds Eye designed by the very talented Jen Allyson!  I am so in love with everything that comes in this kit including the Honey Bee Stamps stamp set!  Just a little FYI this stamp set is sold out and right now the only place to purchase it is with this kit!

I love making cards but it has been such a long time since I actually sat and made some so it felt really good to create these with the card kit!  Once I started making the cards I had so many other card design ideas pop in my head and I can not wait to get them made!  The two cards I am sharing today are very simple cards but I love how they turned out!
