introducing enclosed & new monthly moments products

Welcome to day 3 of the Papertrey Ink 8th anniversary celebration and the February release countdown! Today is a group post day and we are all sharing projects with the new Enclosed series by Dawn McVey, starting with Enclosed: Flower this month. I also have some new Monthly Moments products to share today too.

All of the new stamp sets and products that I am sharing today will be available to purchase on February 15th, 10PM ET, at Papertrey Ink.


The new Enclosed: Flower set is perfect for creating tags, but also great for cards too, I put together this bright and cherry ensemble to share with you today.


For the card, I stamped the flower layers in Berry Sorbet, Pure Poppy, and Scarlet Jewel inks. I popped the "smile" center of the flower up on a punched out circle and added the rest of the sentiment right below it.


I added some Beautiful Blooms #3 die cut Berry Sorbet flowers and a few rainstones to finish off the card.


I made the little pillowbox gift box from Berry Sorbet cardstock that I had stamped some Pure Poppy polka dots onto. I used some Rustic Cream button twine to tie on the tag.


The tag is created with the coordinating Enclosed: Flower dies. I layered white cardstock and patterned vellum over the top of Berry Sorbet cardstock. Another die cut flower and a few rhinestones finish off the tag and make it coordinate perfectly with the card.


A sweet little gift tucked into the box and delivered with the coordinating card is sure to bring a smile to anyone's face!


I am excited to share that the Monthly Moments product series will continue with new stamp sets and dies throughout the year! This month I would like to introduce the Monthly Moments: Year Round Mini set and the Monthly Moments: Year Round 1 & 2 die collections.


The Monthly Moments: Year Round Mini set includes all twelve months in a gorgeous script font along with a few coordinating words that are perfect for customizing the months for the pages that you are working on. The months are designed to fit onto a 3" x 4" journal card. Don't just limit yourself to scrapbooking with this set, it will work wonderfully on cards too. Monthly Moments: Year Round Mini retails for $15.


I created this set of the 3" x 4" journal cards to use throughout my scrapbook album. I die cut the journal cards with the Monthly Moments: Journal Card 1 die and then added a month to each card embossed with clear embossing powder.


I added a different color to the top of each card with an ink blending tool (you could use a sponge too.) Where the month is embossed it resists the ink.

The cards are perfect for highlighting some journaling of things that happened in that particular month. I love to have pre-made journal cards like this ready to go when I am creating my layouts.


The Monthly Moments: Year Round 1 & 2 die collections feature word dies for each of the months in the same script font as the Monthly Moments: Year Round Mini set. The dies are designed to be used on a 4" x 6" journal card/photo.


I put together a whole year's worth of the 4" x 6" journal cards using cardstock layered with a patterned vellum and then the die cut month on top of that. These are going to be so quick & easy to slip into an album pocket or to use on a scrapbook layout.


And finally today, I put together a scrapbook page using some of the new Monthly Moments products...


This page includes photos from our family trip to Florida this past October.


I used the "October" die cut from Ocean Tides cardstock paired with "moments" from the Monthly Moments: Year Round Mini set to title my layout and then typed up some journaling underneath. A little Watercolor Wonder paper is a perfect touch at the top and bottom of the page and I added a few more words in little banners on the photos that I included.
