It's day 4 of the Papertrey Ink July release countdown! Today is a design team group post day and today we are all doing projects made with the new Half & Half stamp set.
Half & Half is a concept of using something like a Mat Stack die cut in half, but with more length! There are coordinating die cuts to use with this set that will certainly be a part of your basic stamp collection.
I paired Half & Half with Tag-its #6 for my project and any of the Tag-its sets would work wonderfully as well!
All of the new stamp sets and products that I am sharing today will be available to purchase on July 15th at Papertrey Ink.
I haven't shared too much here on my blog, but one of my BIG projects is to get photos into albums and then put coordinating scrapbook pages with them. These pages, of course will go into the girls school albums along with other photos and memorabilia. Getting these pages done along with some other things I have put together gives me a big jumpstart to getting this years school scrapping done. You don't a scrapbook page for every thing and picture you have - just a few is all you need.
(my biggest progress with this progress is with my Easter albums and I will share them with all of you at some point here!)
Here's a look at how perfectly Half & Half works with the Tag-its set. A perfect space for adding some journaling, a title, or other embellishment. I love the look of the notebook insert image and sentiment stamped with Fresh Snow ink on True Black cardstock. Very much a chalkboard look.
The bracket is the perfect size for "holding" the lines from the Journaling Lines set. I added the page title with some alphabet stickers and the little smile image from the Tag-its #6 set.
I pulled all of the school themed scrapbook projects that I have created with Papertrey stamps and products. Seeing it all together is definitely inspiring to get working on the albums!
See what the whole design team created with the Half & Half set. Link up to everyone from Nichole's blog. Melissa,Maile, and Lisa will all also have projects on their blogs with their new sets for this month.
See you tomorrow for one last day of the July release countdown!
