Sneak Peek, Love of Leaves Bundle, Top 2 In Sales

I’m so excited to share some new products that are in the Holiday Mini Catalog today. If you follow me, you know that I like to give my Top 2 in Sales a little gift each month. Laurie is my “Rock Star” coming in at #1 and Sheila (not far behind) is #2 in sales for June.

I am in love with the Love of Leaves Stamp Set & Stitched Leaves Dies (get the bundle and save 10%), you will want both. You can find them on page 49 of the Holiday Mini Catalog. I know its a little early for fall, but we are already seeing Christmas Cards. Its almost like we skipped fall and Halloween. lol

Another new product I used is the Celebration Label Dies, (Page 58). I first used a 2″ belly band made from Gilded Autumn Specialty Dsp. This paper is gorgeous! Then I used one of the Celebration Label Dies and embossed it with one of the dies that come with Stitched Leaves Dies. It totally filled up the empty spot I had in the left side, don’t you think? Then I stamped the leaves in Cajun Craze & Mint Macaron, die cut them and added them to the bottom of the label. Do you see the “wood” leaves tucked under the bow? Those wood pieces are from the In Good Taste Elements and I sponged the edges with Early Espresso. You can find them in the Annual Catalog on page 158. Next comes the bow, this ribbon is also in the Annual Catalog and comes from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack (page 161). I attached the bow with a couple of Glue Dots. I wanted to also add one of those cute Acorns from the Acorn Trinkets, so I attached it with some Linen Thread and tied a bow. Love O f Leaves Bundle

This was Laurie’s gift. I will have a complete list of supplies at the end of my post. Here is a close up of the tag. I love all the detail in the leaves and they feel a little whimsical to me.

This is Sheila’s gift. I used a different piece of the Gilded Autumn Specialty dsp. and the ribbon is from the Basket Weave & Metallic Ribbon Combo Park on page 45. I finished off the tags with some of the Gilded Gems from the Annual Catalog.

Now I’m going to show you how I shorted this rectangle. Die cut like shown below.

Now put back in the die, turn upside down and you know when you are back in the stitched area.

Run it through your Die Cutting Machine again, and now you have a smaller rectangle. Using the Post-it’s really help in keeping everything where it needed to be. I attached the greeting with Dimensionals.

Now for the cards. As I went to pull out some Thick Vanilla cardstock, I had these two pieces that must have been left over from another project. I can’t remember the exact size, but around 2 1/2″ x  8 1/2″. I simply stamped the leaves in Cajun Craze, Mint Macaron, Early Espresso & Crumb Cake.

The sentiment is from Peaceful Moments. I know you are wondering why its upside down? It was easier to stamp it straight with no hanging down letters. Ok, I’m weird…… works for me! Under the sentiment I took another piece of the ribbon from the first card, and pulled a thread to make it bunch up, glued it down with some Seal + then put the sentiment on with Dimensionals. Finished off with a double Linen Thread bow. I should have added a few more of Gilded Gems.  And since I didn’t need an envelope to put my cards in, its ok that the sentiment hangs over the card.
