New Prettie Girl, Release Party Details, and a Cutie Pie Contest- oh my!!

Have you seen the Paper Pretties home page?? We have a new Prettie Girl!!!YAYY!!! Jodi Collins aka Kharmagirl, has agreed to join our Jr. Design Team and we are THRILLED to have her!! Now, I know it is no secret to those of you that pay any attention to my blog, but Jodi has got to be my stamping BFF. Before I took the DTcoordinator position, Christie(Prettie Mama) had asked for suggestions for guest designers and I immediately nominated Jodi not because she is my friend, but I love her work, and I knew her style of stamping would work well with the Paper Pretties images. Boy was I right!! She ordered her first stamps not to long ago, and as soon as she got them, she cranked out this GORGEOUS card. She has done two more since then and let me tell you, it didn’t take long for her to go from guest designer to WE HAVE TO HAVE HER!!! So I wanted to take this opportunity to welcome Jodi to our happy family. Be sure to go by her blog and show her some love!!!

On another note, Paper Pretties will be having a “Stampin In Your Jammies” party on July 1st at 8pmEST. Not only will we be releasing the new stamps, but we will also be having challenges with PRIZES(come on, you know you love to win free stuff).

Lean On Me

Hello everyone!! If you didn't already know, I was chosen by Melanie Muenchinger to be her guest designer for this past release. Her new set Cuddles and Hugs is by far one of my favorite sets of hers. The sentiments and images are so perfect and fun to work with. Not only does she design them, but she makes up a tip sheet for each set so that you can SEE all the possibilities with them. She has them linked on her blog in the sidebar if you wanna go check it out AFTER you read my post of course!! This was one of the samples that I made for her to choose from for the release. I love this super cute image of these two lions cuddling. I stamped it twice and colored them both first with my SU markers and cut out just the top lion on the second one. I then glued it back down to the main panel just to give it a tiny bit of dimension. The ribbon is from a share that I did with the super FABULOUS Jody Morrow(texasjodylynn) and matched my Really Rust card stock and this super pretty dp from the Fall Flowers pack by SU. The brads are So Saffron from the Rich Regals brads by SU. I loved the sentiment on this one, made me wanna sing and dance-trust me when I say you are happy you missed it!! To highlight the sentiment, I added a row of piercing just below it and also in the corners of the main image. Of course I had to have a spiral clip with some white taffeta on it, what can I say, it's a sickness!! The scallops were made with my corner rounder. This card is 3x6, an awesome size for this long image. So in closing, if you haven't bought this set, what you waiting for!! Trust me, you will LOVE IT!! Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!
