doily details and more tag-its #1 & fillable frames additions 1


Happy Valentine's Day, everyone!

It the 10th and last day of the Papertrey Ink 4th anniversary and countdown to the February release! How much fun has this been? Between all of the design team members blogs and customer contests and inpiration - wow. I have been browsing the contest submissions over at Nichole's blogs for the various contests. There are so many wonderful cards & projects, so much inspiration. I love seeing what all of you are creating!

Today the whole design team is sharing projects made with the new Delightful Doilies set and the various doily dies that are coming out this month.

All of the new stamp sets and products that I am sharing today will be available to purchase on February 15th (tomorrow!) at Papertrey Ink.


When you think doily, you might right away think of the style shabby chic, vintage, etc. But, really, you can incorporate the images into so many different styles. The project I have to share today is very girly. Hana had a birthday party to go to this past weekend and so I put together a card and tag for her friend. Madisen. I layered the doily images under the number 8 and used lots of pinks and ribbons and the result is something definitely fit for a little girl.


Here's Hana's message to her friend that she wrote in the card.


I  tucked the card right under the ribbon and the gift is all set to go.


You can see and link up to all of the design team members Delightful Doilies contest over at Nichole's blog.

I have a few more cards to share using my new sets today too.


Here's one for St. Patricks day. I paired Tag-its #1 with the Luck of the Irish set. The background was created by lining text stamps up on an acrylic block and then stamping repeatedly.


There's a peek of the polka dot paper from the Pacific Vineyard patterned paper collection at the bottom of the card.

The last card I have to share also uses Pacific Vineyard patterned paper...


I stamped the frame from Tag-its #1 on the background and then punched the doily shapes from the patterned paper and added one to each frame center.I used one of the new frames from Fillable Frames Additions 1 with the "missing you" sentiment layered on a Doily Detail die cut and embellished with a few white buttons.


Remember to head over to Nichole's blog for more about the whole Doily line, Background Basics: Newsprint & Hello, Friend and to link up to the whole design team - Dawn will have more projects to share as well with all of her new sets and products. Melissa will have one more day of sharing with her new Flower Fusion #1 set on her blog too.

Thank you SO, SO much for a wonderful 4th anniversary celebration! The party continues tonight over in the Papertrey forums from 10PM - midnight ET. Be sure to come and join us!
