It’s our very FIRST day of our very FIRST Sneaky Peek Week of the year! I’m excited to bring you 3 NEW stamp sets and 3 NEW CutUps Dies. They will be available on February 20. We are kicking off Day #1 with the fabulous Julie Elak.
Many of you know, I spend a lot of time taking care of my elderly father. Before my mother passed I was lucky enough to take care of her, as well. Like so many of us, I started my own life and grew away from my parents. And, while taking care of them I really got to know them again. They became more than my parents, they became my friends. Family became important again. So, this year, you’ll see a reoccurring theme, Family.
Kicking off this first Sneaky Peek of the year, Julie Elak stamps up this sweet bear and his tiny friend from the NEW Family Forever Stamp Set. She uses watercolor pencils to make this image even more darling.
If you like playing with watercolors and ink to make unique backgrounds, Julie used the NEW Hugs & Kisses CutUps Dies to create stencils. Even though tomorrow is Valentine’s Day, you can send Hugs & Kisses any old time.
Finally, our NEW Big Family Words Stamp Set is a great set that you can use for cards or scrapbook pages. The big words won’t get lost on a scrapbook page and are big enough to make an impact on a card, like this one from Julie. With a soft pretty background and a few stamps from this set, it’s easy to make a card for almost everyone in your family.
