Papertrey Ink released lots of fun new birthday products this week and now we're getting to play along with the designers at this month's Create Along with Us Release Week Challenge.
Remember that I said back in September I would choose a favourite from each day? And that all the ones I chose would need to fit into the "somewhat achievable by me" category? Well, here it is for this month:
I can never resist a cute tag!
|Nichole Heady, again!|
I love this simple clean design. I really struggle to use word die cuts on my cards and this looks like something that I might be able to do easily. Adds a big impact too.
One of my most very favourites of the whole release and it's the one that I chose to CASE, as you will soon see.
Like I just said, I love cute tags and hers was the bomb, the perfect little addition to a birthday gift package.
Hello, the colours! So sad to see that she's leaving the PTI design team. She has been one of my most favourite card makers for forever. I know she has a lot of exciting things happening in her life right now, so I do understand. But I'll miss her lots. :(
Release Day Wrap Up
|Danielle Flanders, again!|
Can you see why I'm going to miss her so much?!!!
My most favourite card of the entire release is this one ...
but it was officially disqualified as being something that I would never even attempt to do. :)
If you're still with me, here is the birthday card that I made - based on Amy's Day 3 winning card ...
I absolutely loved her technique of using sponge daubers to colour in the heat embossed Better Together flowers! It was so much fun to do and I just know that it's something that I'll be doing again. I also blended some Sweet Blush ink, in an oval shape, to my background to add a little bit of extra interest. Really happy with the way it all came out. For once. :)
