Here we are, the first My Favorite Things Teaser Time day of the Year! Happy New Year! Have you had a great holiday season? I hope you all had happy and loving times with friends and loved ones. (((hugs)))
I'm excited to have several products I've illustrated and designed to offer this month!
I can't wait to hear your thoughts on them too! Here we go...
Homespun Hearts ($15.95) - A sweet Love/Valentine's Day stamp set that has a true homespun feel. Each main heart that is included in the set has a unique shape and pattern. There are fun leaves and stems included for a rustic feel. The sweet buttons coordinate with the Die-namics Circle STAX set 2 so that you can stamp and die cut them with ease. With maximum versatility in mind when illustrated, you will be able to create for several occasion with this heartwarming set!
Hearts & Stitches ($15.95) - You will LOVE the versatility and ease of use that Hearts & Stitches brings to your stamp collection! The stitches are so fun to use... and perfect for those who like the sewing look but not to sew. This set also coordinates with Homespun Hearts.
Square Pillow Box ($25.95) - This die helps you create a lovely, unique shaped pillow box. Perfect for little treat, party favors and so many other things. The final result is squarer than the typical pillow box too.
Now... onto some projects!
This first card shows the plaid heart and some of the other elements from Homespun Hearts and Hearts & Stitches.
The heart is so sweet layered over leaves like this. I was really inspired by many quilted décor and quilts, that I've seen through the years, when I illustrated Homespun Hearts.
You can also see the various patterns from Hearts & Stitches here too.
The inside show one of the little hearts, the one that is the same shape as the plaid heart, used with the little leaf in Homespun Hearts.
Next is an ensemble that shows the use of the hearts and stems together.
Each heart works with a stem to create a different look. I used the Zigzag stitch image from Hearts & Stitches to frame the focal panel.
The inside shows the design carried over from the front. Just a few easy steps and the result is a very finished looking card.
Here you see the little words that fit with the hearts to resemble conversation hearts. Each of the Square Pillow Boxes is stamped with images from Hearts & Stitches.

I'm off to celebrate my birthday... such a great way to start a new year. (Even though I'm pretty tuckered out from the holidays.) I love to eat at my favorite place to eat here in Anacortes..... a friendly Greek restaurant that is family owned. I always feel like a wanted guest and the food is amazing!
Thanks for poppying by, friends!
