Layered Carnation

Hello there my crafty friends!  This is the final post of the Oct. blog die launch :(   I usually save the flowers for the end and that is exactly what I have done today too.  On offer this post is the Layered Carnation die set.  Shown here, you can see how pretty it looks when made up as a carnation.  You may however, have noticed it on previous posts and it looked completely different!  That is the beauty of this die set, you can make so many different looking flowers with it.  There are five different sized flowers you can make too so it is really versatile!  For the final time I will ask you to add your comment onto this post if you would like to be entered into the drawing to win this set.  The drawing will take place the morning of the 26th and will be posted in the afternoon, so don't forget to check back then!  I hope you have enjoyed seeing all the new dies and learning about about each of them.  It has been my pleasure to share them all with you.  All for now, Sue x

Fern Fronds

Hi bloggers!  The next up is the Fern Fronds die set.  Shown here, the fern frond dies were used to create negative space in this background.  The die set gives you a really lovely negative fall away design, don't you think?  Add some flowers and a sentiment and Bob's your uncle!  Just leave your comment on this post and hopefully join us back here at 3pm for the final post of the blog launch.  All for now, Sue x

Garden Delights Frame

Hello all!  Welcome to the final day of the October die release blog launch.  I am starting out today with the Garden Delights Frame.  There are three dies in this set; the garden delights die, the outer cutting edge and the sentiment.  The frame has been designed as a lattice background with flowers around the lower section.  It is perfect for most occasions and can be cut apart and used in smaller sections too.  Shown here, you can see how you can even add a second layer of flowers for dimension.  If you like this one, just add your comment to be entered into the drawing to win it.  Don't forget to use the Pinit button to save any of your favourite samples or die sets to your Pinterest sample boards for later inspiration.  I will be back at 12 noon with post number two.  Hope to see you back here then.  All for now, Sue x

Wisteria Frame

Hi crafters!  There are a couple of floral themed frames in this release.  The first of which is the Wisteria Frame.  I love having a beautiful floral die to use and this one is no exception.  The wisteria frame is easy to colour so it makes a really quick card.  The floral theme works with just about any sentiment, but there is a lovely sentiment that comes with the die; thankful for you.  This frame has been designed with an outer cutting die that acts as a shadow backing for the frame too so you can easily add mounting foam to raise it for dimension.  If you think you could give this die a good home, just leave a comment and your name may just be the one that is drawn!  That's it for today, but the last day starts here at 6am tomorrow morning.  Hope to see you then!  All for now, Sue x

Best Friend Shadowed Sentiment

Hi bloggers!  The last of the shadowed mini expressions is the Best Friend.  Shown here, you can see that it will fit nicely into the centres of many of the frames so can be easily used.  As with the other shadowed sentiments, the words have been done separately so you have the option of how to use them.  The fonts all mix and match too so you can add words from the other sets together to form sentiments like Just For You or For You Best Friend.  The shadow allows you to have a bit more space so you can add mounting foam to raise the sentiments too as I have done here.  Leave a comment if you would like a chance at winning this one.  The last post of the day will be here at 3pm.  All for now, Sue x

For You Shadowed Mini Sentiment

Hello crafters!  Welcome to the penultimate day of our blog launch.  We only have three posts today and three posts tomorrow left to go.  We are continuing with the shadowed mini expressions this morning and showcasing the For You die set.  Shown here in its shadowed form, this die can be used in a number of ways.  Each word is separate so you have the ability to stack them or use them side by side or even in a diagonal configuration.  You can use the shadow if you chose or not.  Leave a comment here if this one tickles your fancy.  The next post will be along at noontime.  Don't forget to check back then to see what's in store!  All for now, Sue x

Just Because Mini Shadowed Sentiment

Hello there my crafty friends!  Thanks for stopping back by for the final post of the day.  We are showcasing the new shadowed sentiments, starting with the Just Because Shadowed Mini Expressions.  Each word has a corresponding die that cuts a "shadow" where you can seat the sentiment upon.  There are quite a few uses for this, including providing a means for your sentiment to pop a bit more on your card.  It also allows you to raise your sentiment with small pieces of foam for more dimension.  The sentiments can be used with or without the shadow area as well.  If this one tickles your fancy, you know what to do! LOL  That's it for today but we still have a few more days on the blog launch.  We will be starting here at 6am.  Hope you can join us!  All for now, Sue x

With Sympathy Mini Expression

Hello crafters!  One of the most difficult cards to make is the Sympathy card, I think everyone will agree.  This post features the With Sympathy Mini Expression and hopefully it will help with that task.  It has been tastefully done in a readable font with some lovely swirls.  You can easily cut the words apart to use them in a different orientation on your card if need be too.  Leave your comment on this post to be entered into the drawing to win this die.  The final post of the day will be here at 6pm tonight.  It would be lovely to see you back here again!  All for now, Sue x

Get Well Soon Mini Expression

Hi bloggers!  The next Mini Expression is the Get Well Soon.  Shown here, you can see that it is a lovely font and has been done on a single line.  This sentiment can, however, be easily cut apart so it can be used vertically or even on the diagonal.  This is one of those basic sentiments to have in your crafty stash as you never know when you will have the need for a get well card to be sent.  Leave a comment and I will enter your name in the drawing to win this one.  I will be back at 3pm for the next instalment of this blog launch.  Don't forget to drop back by then!  All for now,
Sue x

For Someone Special

Hello all and welcome back!  We are now on to the mini expressions in this release.  First up is the For Someone Special.  This was actually a special request someone had several months back, but because I work quite a way in advance it has taken some time to bring it to market!  I do think it is an incredibly useful die to have as it is very generic and can be used for so many things!  I think you can see from the sample shown here, that it really looks lovely when used on a very clean and simple styled card.  It is bold enough to hold its own on a clean canvas.  Just leave your comment if you like this one and wouldn't mind a chance in the drawing to win it!  The last post of the day will be online at 6pm today.  All for now,  Sue x

Sewing Accesories

Hi bloggers!  Next up is the Sewing Accessories die set to go with the Sew Sweet Frame.  I just love to have other items within a theme to use to make such cute cards, don't you!  As you can see from the sample shown here, there are quite a bit of fun accessories to use including the scissors, assorted buttons, pin cushion and more than I haven't even used on this card!  There is a sewing machine, spools, safety pin, quilt square and a couple of great sentiments too!  Just leave your comment here if this is right up your alley!  The next post will be at 3pm today.  I look forward to seeing you back at the blog then!  All for now, Sue x

Sew Sweet Frame

Hi crafters!  I know we have a lot of crafters out there that just love to sew! This frame is for you!  The Sew Sweet Frame is a themed frame that can be used to make really quick cards or you can use bits of the frame by easily nipping them apart too.  Shown here, I have sort of paper pieced it to create this card.  I just love how the spools look so cute with Bakers twine wrapped around them!  If you would be interested in getting your name in this drawing, just leave a comment on this post.  Don't forget you can use the Pinit button to add any of the cards or dies to your Pinterest boards for later inspiration too.  I will be back with the second post today at noon, don't forget to drop back by the blog to see what's in store!  All for now, Sue x

Just A Note Frame

Hi bloggers!  Next up is the Just A Note Frame.  This lovely music frame will certainly appeal to anyone who loves music!  The really nice sentiment allows you to add any sort of addition to the sentiment to fit your recipients needs too.  Shown here it is a birthday card, but you could easily add other sentiments such as Happy Retirement, Bon Voyage, Happy Anniversary or Just Because!  So much versatility for a single frame!  If you like this die set, just leave your comment o this blog post. We are finished for the day, but we will be back here bright and early in the morning for another day of surprises starting here at 6am.  I hope to see you back here then.  All for now, Sue x

Hexagonal border

Hi bloggers!  You have probably noticed the Hexagonal Border in a few previous posts as it has been a real go to border.  Shown here, I have used it as as frame for my focal element.  It looks lovely no matter how you use it.  You can easily cut it down in size to make it thinner or use it as a background.  I just love the versatility of it!  You just need to leave a comment to be entered in the drawing to win it!  Don't forget to use the Pinit button to save any samples for later inspiration to your Pinterest boards too!  The final post of the day will be here at 6pm, I hope you can join us back here then!  All for now, Sue x

African Adventure

Hi bloggers!  This post is dedicated to showing off the other coordinating die set from the Safari Collection; African Adventure.  This set has several great sentiments, some trees, grass and birds. It contains all the extras to go with the animals to create stunning cards like the sample shown here.  The stamp set that matches the animals also includes the trees and grass so you can make detailed cards.  I love that this collection can be used to make either male or female cards with ease, plus just think of the fun you will have making beautiful backgrounds to go with them!  Leave your comments on this post and your name will be entered into the drawing to win this set!  The next post will be online at 3pm today.  I'm looking forward to seeing you back here then!  All for now, Sue x
