Happy Monday morning to you! Can you believe this year is over? For me, this past year has been one of exciting changes. I’ve made and finally met in person some wonderful friends – I’m so lucky! My daughters are striking out on their own. They are both so talented and independent, and they are following their dreams now. They are awesome young adults – I’m so lucky! No resolutions for me, I never make them. I can only hope that the path I’ve traveled in 2007 continues well into 2008! Sometimes you have to veer off and take the path less traveled, but what an adventure it is! Here’s wishing each and every one of you a Happy and Adventurous New Year!

This Friday, January 4, Hanna Stamps is releasing their new Valentine’s Set, Sweet Celebrations. I’ve got some sneak peeks ready for you, and my first one is today. I think I’ll save my favorite for last – nope, just changed my mind! I’m gonna show you my favorite today. I’ve just decided what a great way to end of the year. By the way, with this new template I’m using, my photos need to be smaller. So if you want to see the pic better, click on it and a new window will open with the larger image.

The image was colored with Copic Markers, edges sponged with distress ink, and then all the panels were sewn together. The edges of background panels (BasicGrey Stella Ruby) were sponged with the same distress ink and then sewn to a larger background panel. The sentiment was generated on the computer and punched out. The lips were stamped in one color of distress ink and then the second pair of lips were stamped in a darker color of distress ink and embossed with clear embossing powder. The image panel and the lips are both raised on mounting tape.

Hey Ya’ll! I know I’ve been missing for the last couple of days, but I’ve had a few projects to work on. In addition, I had to get some Christmas shopping done! WOO HOO almost done. Anyhoo, here’s one of the projects I’ve been working on!!

Hanna Stamps releases two new sets at midnight tonight, which is December 14th. “Things Hanna Would Say,” are 28 sayings that will fit into the word window punch, and “Perfect Package.” There are 15 separate images in the Perfect Package set, from ribbons, bows, scissors, tape to Hanna wrapping a package.

For my samples, I used the Perfect Package set on both, and colored them with Copic Markers. The background paper on both cards is from the Daisyd’s Snowflake and Holly Collection. Even though this paper as a Holiday name, I know I’ll be using some of these papers for more than Christmas – they are absolutely gorgeous!

Additional papers on this first card are Always Artichoke and Soft Sky. The corner punch was used for the photo corners and I couldn’t resist using all the brads.

For the second card, I made a 4-1/4 x 4-1/4 square tent card. The additional cardstock for this card are Always Artichoke and Blue Bayou. I would never have thought these colors would go well together until I went to matching the Daisyd’s paper. I used different size Marvy Uchida punches for the topper, sponged the edges and then added Ranger Liquid Pearls in the scallops. For some added shimmer on the inner circle, I added white dots with a paint pen, and then went over them with a Sakura Shimmer pen.
