Sentimental Journey


I love these colors together...
 and with this stamp design, it really works well. 

Welcome to another New Release Preview for


 Today is the first of a two-day blog hop, so if you've come
here from the Sweet Stamp Shop Blog, then you are
in the perfect place.  If not, it's just one stop back and if
you visit each of the designer's blogs & leave a little
love on each, you could win the new releases!
 
 
This new release is called 'Sentimental Birds'.
I love the simplicity of the silhouettes.
This particular stamp is actually a straight branch of birds, but I like the idea of
the curved lines, so I simply 'bent' them slightly when I placed them on the 
acrylic block and got the affect I was looking for.

The rest of the elements here 
(with the exception of the baker's twine from The Twinery)
came from the January kit by Paper Made Bakery and includes
beautiful Bazzill cardstock and paper from Authentique's 'Blissful'
collection.  The beautiful seam binding and the matching button
really gave it a nice accent.


I really am happy you came by today and hope you enjoy
the inspiration that you find along the hop today.
Before you go, here is the 'fine print' that I need to
remind you of and THEN it's time to send you on your way....
