Introducing Daily Designs & Sentiments

By January 14, 2010General

Alli's headshot

Alli Miles has a knack of designing stamps that not only stay true to her hip modern style, but that incorporate a versatility that can't be matched.  Her new introductions this month are no different.

Daily Designs is a set of eight tag frames & patterns that include a variety of small companion images, covering everything from Easter to Father's Day to Baby.  You are all familiar with the ease of use you have found with our previous tag sets, such as Holiday Tags and Tags for Spring.  Alli has now designed her very own comprehensive set that embodies a versatile mix with year-round capabilities.

The details.

  • Daily Designs will be available for sale on January 15th.
  • It will retail for $24.
  • It contains a total of 25 stamps (8 tag images and 17 companion images.)
  • All of the tag images coordinate with a 1.75" standard circle punch, our Fiskars scalloped circle punch and the Marvy (blue) super jumbo scalloped circle punch.

You can't have images without sentiments!  Alli also designed a companion sentiment set that contains something for every season, holiday and event you can dream up!

The details.

  • Daily Designs Sentiments will be available for sale on January 15th.
  • It will retail for $15.
  • It contains a total of 26 sentiments.

Alli has already been super busy this week posting some AMAZING quick & easy card samples (you can see them all HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE and HERE!) I decided to step a little outside of the box and create something a little different.  I have two projects to share with you today, each with completely different looks, which emphasizes just how versatile this set can be!

Notepad cover

This first project uses two of my very favorite images from Daily Designs.  A stylish bird on a branch and a stitched tag border.  I also used a "just a note" sentiment that can be found in Daily Designs Sentiments.

Bird closeup

The bird is stamped in Spring Moss ink, with the stitched border & sentiment being stamped in Dark Chocolate.  I pierced a small hole with my paper piercer in the center of each stitch of the border to add a bit more detail.  The image was punched out with my 1.75" circle punch and matted with a scalloped circle punched from Ripe Avocado cardstock.  A vintage Spring Moss button tied with Rustic Jute button twine was added to the top for a little texture and dimension.

Completed notebook looking down

This notepad project has a little bit of a fun twist.  I love to make these little notepads as gifts but I am always left scratching my head as to how to incorporate a pencil or pen and keep everything practical and professional looking.  After a few hours of fiddling, I finally developed a notepad cover that integrates a special holding place for a writing instrument! 

And because I love all of you SOOOO much, I even drew up the template and formatted it as an easy to print pdf so you can make your own versions of this too!

Click the link below to download my notepad cover & pen holder template!

Download Pen holder template

Pencil scored template
Here's a quick run down of just how easy this is to recreate in your own studio!  First, print the box template onto your desired cardstock.  Cut & score according to the template.

Pencil adhering top tabs
Adhere the long top tabs over onto the back of the template using Scor-tape or another sturdy adhesive.  This is an important step to do first, because this needs to be done in order for you to be able to punch the circle necessary for the pen insert.

Pencil punching hole
After folding in the top two tabs, invert a 1/2" circle punch and punch out the opening where indicated.

Pencil punched hole
You will end up with something that looks like this.

Pencil bottom tab adhered
Fold and adhere the two side tabs in to form the box sides, followed by the bottom tab to complete the box.

Notching back cover

Measurements for scoring & cutting the actual notepad cover are included in the download above.  I like it because it incorporates an extra section that creates a pocket for storing important papers, such as a small calender, receipts, appointment cards or anything else you can think of.

Adhering cover pocket

I used a 1.25" circle punch to create a notch in the back before I adhered the two edges to the center to form the pocket.

Everything adhered upright view
After adhering as indicated in the above photo, I added two of our notepads, one to the front cover and one to the back cover.  You'll notice that the pen holder adheres nicely in place right next to the notepad.

Open notepad
A pencil or pen will now tuck perfectly into the designated spot!

Finished notched back
A bit of embellishing is to the cover is all that is needed to complete this project!

Side of pencil detail

One more note, I was able to create a matching pencil with a little modge podge and a few clothespins.  I found that a 1" strip of our patterned paper, cut to the length of the pencil you are covering is usually a perfect size.  Cover the back of the papr with modge podge and use several clothespins to hold the seam down in place while it dries.  Once the modge podge is completely dry, the pencil can be sharpened normally. 

Princess Ensemble

My second project is in a completely different style than the first.  It's girly, shimmery and sparkly all at the same time, perfect for any little girls in your life!

Princess card

(click above image for a larger view)

It was hard to capture all of the shimmer in a photograph, so you'll have to use your imagination a bit!  This card layers our new pink shimmer cardstock (see post below) and aqua mist for a fun and vibrant color scheme! 

Stamped pink flowers
To create the fun background, I started with our pink shimmer cardstock.  This tag image from Daily Designs reminded me a bit of a flower, so I decided to use it by itself to build my pattern.  I stamped it repeatedly using Hibiscus Burst ink.  The contrast of the slight chalkiness you get with the pigment ink compared with the shimmer of the cardstock is too pretty to describe in words!

Stamped aqua flowers
I followed up with a small floral image also from Daily Designs, stamped in Aqua Mist intermittently around the pink flowers.

Finished floral pattern
The completed shimmery pattern is just stunning in real life!

Stamped flourish
For the focal point on the card I stamped two of the flourishes from Fancy Flourishes using Aqua Mist ink.  As a tip, don't be afraid to put both flourishes on the block at the same time to ensure perfect placement and symmetry.

Crown stamp
I then stamped this crown image, alos from Daily Designs, with Hibiscus Burst ink.  The reason why I showed you this process for the focal point was to emphasize that even these small companion images can become a show stopper if you layer them over larger framing elements.

Completed crown closeup

I added glitter borders above and below the princess focal point using Scor-tape and Prisma Glitter.  All of the sparkle really adds amazing detail to this project.

Presentation of a gift for your little princess could not be complete without some super cute packaging!  I used the NEW! Back to Basics Box template (available tonight) to create this pretty stack of packages.

Box ends
There are actually three sizes of boxes included with this Click Simple template package, so you can use them individually or stack them for a bigger impact.

Box open
These boxes are as easy as 1-2-3 to put together, and you don't even need to worry about a closure.  The integrated sizes fold down and tuck into a specially designed slot.

Boxes & stand
With the addition of some pretty ribbon and some bits of the background paper created for the card, I have a stunning package to present to the birthday girl!

Weren't today's projects so fun?  I had a blast with these
sets, and I know you will too once you get them into your hot little
hands!  What kinds of projects do you think you'll create with these

    When I first saw the sneak peek for this set, I didn’t think I would “need” it this month. However, after each new project was revealed, I found myself undecided about ordering it now or later and each project made it harder and harder to resist. Well, the princess card was my undoing. I gotta have it! Your stamp sets and projects continue to inspire me each month.
