Sneak Peek #4

By September 7, 2011General

Two more September sneak peeks coming your way on this fine day!

Maile Belles is bringing you some beautiful renditions of bells and boughs this month.  Her illustration style with these images is second to none and with a combination of both solid and outlined images, the possibilities & techniques are endless!


I have designed a collection of dies and images that will bring holiday photo cards to a whole new level.  The concept pairs the ease of photo cards with the fun of getting just a little inky and creative.  We are looking forward to showing you how easy it can be to have the most fabulous holiday photo cards ever!

    Wonderful idea for dressing up photo cards! Would love to see this idea for all types of photo occasions! Birth announcements, engagements, sweet sixteen, special anniversaries, baby shower, or how about a thank you, picture a child with a new toy following a birthday party or grandparent’s visit…..or a picture of the cabin your friends shared with you for the weekend… this idea!

    Oh, my, I cannot wait to see the set for photo cards. I make lots of photo cards with buttons and patterned papers and photos (actually cut and paste as opposed to digital cards) but a stamp set to enhance it all sounds pretty great to me.

    photo christmas cards takes me back to my childhood when my dad used to develop the cards himself in a dark room in our basement.

    o.m.g. I have over 200 e-mails in my box to read or get rid of, and I’m so glad I looked at yours first! Photo-enhanced stamps??? You had me right there! As a mommy who works full-time, I would LOVE to make my own cards for holidays, but typically I fall short right around Christmas. This idea is perfect! You’ve sold me and I haven’t even seen the set yet!
