super stars revisited
more traveler's journal collection

introducing dress up dolls: rainy day & cover plate: scallops + traveler's journal collection


Welcome to day 1 of the Papertrey Ink July release countdown. Today, I am introducing the new Dress Up Dolls: Rainy Day and the new Cover Plate: Scallops die. Stay tuned at the end of my post for a peek of my new Traveler's Journal collection.

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


Dress Up Dolls: Rainy Day is a new set in the Dress Up Dolls series that includes and adorable raincoat ensemble perfect for dressing up the Dress Up Dolls: Basics dolls for a little rainy day puddle jumping. I sat down and did a bunch of coloring with all of these fun images with some colored pencils. I literally colored up a bunch of outfits and dolls and then "dressed" them all up for my projects that I am sharing today. This cutie is sporting a yellow raincoat with some bright red rain boots and holding a super cute umbrella.


For the background on the card I used the new Cover Plate: Scallops die that I cut from Hawaiian Shores cardstock and layered onto a Tropical Teal card base. The clouds are from the Make it Market Mini Kit: Sunshine & Rainbows and then I added the sentiment that is from the Dress Up Dolls: Rainy Day set on some kraft cardstock strips.


There are two rainy day friends on this card sporting their raincoats, boots, and rain hats. The sentiment and background is stamped with raindrops from the Rainy Day Sentiments set with Fresh Snow ink on a kraft card base.


At the top and bottom of the card are scalloped borders that I trimmed from the new Cover Plate: Scallops die cut in Enchanted Evening cardstock.


And, of course, I had to add this cute rain outfit to Tacy's magnetic doll set that I am making from her with the Dress Up Dolls sets that are coming out this year. Her doll has quite the collection of clothes building up!


I colored the raincoat to match Tacy's coat that she has. How much fun is it to personalize this project for her?


I loved putting together all of these sweet projects to share with you today.

Now onto a few introductions from my new collection of products that are making their debut this month...


Traveler's Journal: Adventure is a stamp set that is perfect for creating a scrapbook or journal to document travel, vacations, and more. I think you are going to love all of the details and possibilities of what I have put together. Traveler's Journal: Adventure will retail for $15.


Traveler's Journal: Typed Notes is a companion mini set to the Traveler's Journal: Adventure set. I used my vintage typewriter to type up all sorts of notes that you are going to love using in your journals, scrapbooks, cards, tags, and other projects. Traveler's Journal: Typed Notes will retail for $5.

There is a great collection of coordinating dies, patterned papers, and more that I am so excited to share with you in the next few days before the release. I hope you will love all as much as I do!


Here's a peek at some tags, an envelope, and more that I put together with my new Traveler's Journal collection. I used the Minute to Make: Holiday Tag dies for the tags that I am sharing here and there is a stamp in the Traveler's Journal: Adventure set that coordinates with the Just the Ticket border die.


You can see more new products being debuted today for the July release over at Nichole's blog. From there you can link up to other members of the design team who have new things to share with you today too!
