Its now time to start blogging about some of the new stamp sets. The Date Me set has really been a hit in both the English and French versions. I have actually been a little surprised at how many of the French sets I have sold here in the states. I can see where the appeal is but it is still interesting to see.
Liz Tamanaha of Paislee Press Designs created the set for me. It is based on her original digital design that you can see here. Liz used to be a paper scrapper and customer of mine. I loved her work and you can see her older designs throughout the gallery. Liz crossed over to the digital world several years ago. She eventually started doing her own digital designs. If you are into digital scrapping you have to check out her designs. Liz's "Press Lines" are some of my favorites. You can see them throughout her blog and in her shop.
I was sad when Liz stopped paper scrapping but I started to realize that her digital designs were even better. This is coming from someone who still prefers the look of paper over digital. Liz & I started to do some catching up a few months ago and we decided to try some of her designs in rubber. The first of the stamps is the Date Me set. Here are some samples from the design team to get your creative thoughts flowing.
Jennifer really does some great projects. That is what I was so drawn to on her blog. Take a look at the different ways she used this set.
Jennifer used the Trick or Treat Bagstamp for the shopping bags in this card. She just covered up the words with cardstock. Cute, huh?
Waleska did this great layout and a calendar mini.
Courtney whipped up this fab card.
additional stamps used: Merriness Set
Stephanie also did some cards. It is funny because I figured most people would feel this set was for scrapping but it really is so versatile.
Oh look Aimee did some cards too!
Pam Callaghan and Heidi Sonboul also got to play with the set last month. These are the designs they came up with. First up is Pam.
The last samples for today are Heidi's.
The other absolutely fabulous idea for this set is Ali Edward's December Daily Album. This is such a great project. A few of the girls on the design team have mentioned using this set for their albums. I have a sneaking suspicion they are not the only ones.
**edited to show a couple of Judi's December Daily Album pages.
