Tis The Season Mini Expression

Hello and welcome back!  The final post of the day is for the Tis The season Mini Expression.  As shown here, you can see how well it looks with the Lattice Poinsettia Background.  It is smaller in size so it fits so many of the Festive Frames in the release too.  It is lovely and swirly but again, very readable.  This one will be showing up quite a bit on the Christmas card samples on the blog.  Please feel free to use the Pinterest button on this or any of the samples you have seen that you would like to save for future inspiration. That's it for today, but there are more to come tomorrow starting at 6am.  All for now, Sue x

From Our House To Yours Mini Expression

Hello there my crafty friends!  I have another sentiment die to share with you during this post; From Our House To Yours Mini Expression.  Shown here, you can see that it works so well with the Twas the Night Frame die set.  This sentiment will also work for so many occasions outside of Christmas too.  Think housewarmings or invitations just to name a few.  I am sure you will find many more ideas for it too.  Just a quick comment will get your name in the drawing to win it!  The last post of the day will be online at 6pm.  I do hope you will be able to come back by.  All for now, Sue x

Overlay and Ornament

Hi bloggers!  This next die set is  classified within the Festive Frame category, but it is more than that actually.  The Overlay and Ornament die set has been designed to work with all the Festive Frame offerings in the launch as an overlay.  This set looks best when cut and stacked several times then added as either an overlay or used in pieces as an addition to the sides.  The ornament centre can be used with or without the overlay and is elegant on its own.  This was a real go to in my sample making, it really added a lovely detail to so many cards.  I am sure this one will be a real go to for you as well.  Leave your comment and pop back by at 3pm for the next release.  All for now, Sue x

Good morning all!  Welcome to the start of day number eight.  We are starting out with the new Mary Festive Frame die set.  Mary is surrounded with five poinsettias interspersed with lovely swirls.  This set can easily be cut apart to use the flowers individually or layered up.   As shown in this sample, Mary has been doubled and layered for a more dense look.  You can also see how lovely it looks when layered up o the Eve die too.   I would love to hear what you think of this set. Is it your favourite?  Or do you have your eye on another set??  Just leave your comment and let me know.  The next post is scheduled at noontime today.  Hope to see you back here then.  All for now, Sue x

Hello crafters!  The last post of the day is dedicated to the Eve die set.  The design of the Eve die is definitely not just for Christmas, but can easily be used year round.  Eve layers up nicely with the other Festive frames to give you beautiful cards for Christmas.  If you like this one you know what to do, it is so easy to leave a comment.  The instructions are on the right hand side of the blog in case you have never done it before.  We are back here at 6am for the start of day number eight.  All for now, Sue x

Hi bloggers!  The next die I would like to share is Faith.  From the Festive Frames category, Faith is a beautifully detailed,  intricate die.  Shown here in this sample, you can see how easily this die carries the card as the focal element.  Faith also looks lovely when layered up with the other festive frames and you will see this one time after time in the Christmas blog samples.  Just leave your messages on this post to be included in the drawing to win this one.  The last post of the day is at 6pm.  All for now, Sue x

Happy Christmas Mini Expression

Hi crafters!  The next die offering is the Happy Christmas Mini Expression.  This die set is also one of the largest mini expressions in the range, but it is bold and beautiful.  You can see what a statement it will make on any of your Christmas card projects.  The mixture of fonts is quite on trend too but easily readable which I feel is a real must for sentiment dies.  If this one is right up your alley, then leave your comment on this post.  Just checking, do you have a favourite die from the release yet?  I would love to know what you think of everything you have seen so far!  The next post is scheduled for 3pm today.  All for now, Sue x

Merry Christmas Mini Expression

Hi crafters!  We are starting off the day with one of the largest dies in the Mini Expression range; Merry Christmas.  I was just able to fit this one in under the wire to get it into the mini expression category.  It is a lovely mix of fonts but it really makes a statement on any card I think! Again, the two words can be nipped apart for maximum usage so it is a very versatile sentiment die.  I know this one will be a real go to for your festive card making.  I would love to read your comments about it, let me know what you think.  The second post will be online for your viewing at noontime today.  I will look for you then.  All for now,
Sue x

Seasons Greetings

Hi bloggers!  The final post of the day is for one more of the beautiful sentiment dies; Season's Greetings!  This one is a full sized sentiment so it makes a gorgeous focal element, don't you think?  It is easily nipped apart in case you want to use the words at the top and bottom of your card or side by side rather than having a stacked sentiment.  There is a lot of versatility in this one plus it is just such a pretty font with the added detail of the holly leaves and easy readability.  If this set appeals to you, just leave a comment on this post and you might just have your name drawn out as the winner!  That's it for day six but there is still more to come.  I will be back at 6am for day number seven!  All for now, Sue x

Hi crafters and welcome back!  This post is dedicated to showcasing the Natalie die set.  Natalie is a little larger than Carol but looks great when layered up (you may have noticed her on the previous card sample.)  While there are holly leaves surrounding the outside edge, it is still rather subtle and I feel could easily be used year round.  If not the outside, certainly the inside dies could with their almost ray like centre, a gorgeous way to seat any sentiment.  Is Natalie the one you would like to win?  You know the drill by now.  One more post for today and it is coming your way at 6pm.  All for now, Sue x

Hello all!  Let me introduce Carol to you.  This die set has the feel of flowing snow drifts in winter with a snowflake inspired  centre yet nothing is particularly overtly Christmassy about her.  She looks great done in any colour and works so well with other dies (I just love the Frosty Snowflake corner with her, don't you?)  Let me know what you think of Carol, won't you?  Don't forget to use the Pinit  Pinterest button too!  It has been placed at the bottom of each blog post for you.  At 3pm the next post will appear.  All for now, Sue x

Hi bloggers!  I would like to show off some of the new Frames and Tags category starting with Angelina.  Show here, you can see what a lovely focal element this die makes.  I have tried to design with multi purposes in mind so these dies can easily be used year round rather than just for Christmas.  Add a few solidly Christmas styled dies and this one carries it off beautifully.  Angelina has been designed in three separate sections with two cutting lines so you can easily use whichever section you need.  I would love to know what you think.  A comment on this post would do the trick!  Next post will be here at noontime for your perusal.  All for now, Sue x
