Avery Elle–Swans and Simply Said: Hugs


Hello my loves!


I’ve been remiss in posting my latest Avery Elle projects!  Somehow, the days just slipped by, and I realized that I had forgotten to post my project last week!  I’m so sorry!  But I’m happy to report I’m back on track, and am here to share both last week’s project as well as today’s project!




Swans Stamp Set
Swans Dies
Scalloped Banner Dies
Double Pierced Circle Dies
New Moon Dye Ink


How stinkin’ cute are those sweet swans?!  And for a Copic-challenged designer like myself, still look great with a minimal coloring – BONUS!  That Swans Stamp Set, as well as the coordinating Swans Dies, is the perfect set for those punny valentines and anniversary cards!  Cuteness galore!!




Simply Said: Hugs Dies
Banner & Wreath Stamp Set
Banner & Wreath Dies
Double Pierced Square Dies


This project features the Simply Said: Hugs Dies on their own.  It’s great to have a companion stamp set, but you can see that the Simply Said: Hugs Dies looks great without a companion sentiment to go along with it.  I’ve listed the products that I used on each project below the photos.


Please click on through to the Avery Elle Design Blog, where you’ll find mucho inspiration created by my sweet teammates!  They really are a brilliant bunch that I get to work with.  I pinch myself every day.


That’s it for me today, friends!  I’m catching my breath after a spectacular week of experiencing the Craft & Hobby Association Creativation 2017 Trade Show.  I was blessed with the opportunity to walk the show with some of the Avery Elle Design Team, and it’s owner.  And I also got to hug and meet many of my crafty crushes and super sweet friends along the way.  Heaven on earth, I tell ya!  I am so very, very lucky in my crafty life, and I never want to take that for granted.  I also never want to take you all, and the time you spend here with me, for granted.  I truly appreciate each and every one of you, and the love and support you give to me in my endeavors.  Thank you, from the bottom of my heart! Okay, I’m off to get more crafty stuff done – have a great weekend!

I had such a great time with you Karolyn and am chuffed to bits that I even got to hang out and craft with you in your beautiful home! Thank you for everything you funny, clever, talented, generous all-round superstar of a friend xxx

What a sweet Valentine with the swans! Your colorful, ink-blended Hugs card looks awesome, too.
