Avery Elle Fall 2014 Release Blog Hop!


Well, hello!

It’s Avery Elle Blog Hop Day!

You should have arrived here from the Avery Elle blog.  If not, head on over to the Avery Elle Blog to start the hop!

To say that I’m excited to be participating in today’s blog hop is a complete understatement!  I don’t think it’s any secret that I love Avery Elle’s products, so to be able to share my projects using the latest products as an official Design Team member is just about the best thing that’s happened to me in a long, long time!  I can’t wait, so let’s get to it, shall we?

9-4-14 Blog Hop Seasons Greetings

For the blog hop, I got to play with the new Season’s Greetings Elle-Ments die set.  Be still my heart!  The font that Jamie used on this die set is DEE-LICIOUS!!  I did a bit of an inlaid die cut technique with the sentiment and the Dotted Elle-Ments banner (I also used the Dotted Elle-Ments to cut out the main image panel!)  And check out those darling little holly leaves and berries!!  They are the perfect size for cards – not too big and such a lovely finishing detail!  I can totally see myself mass-producing this card for our holiday cards.  That die cut sentiment packs such a punch as the focal image that it really doesn’t need much else!

Next stop on the hop is Chunyuan’s blog – no doubt she has something brilliant and amazing to share with you!

Here is the entire hop list, in case you get lost or encounter any broken links!
