Papertrey Ink - July 2010 Release Projects

Stopping in to share the rest of my Papertrey Ink July release projects with you today.

I must admit, when I first saw the images of the stamp set for this release, I was a little uneasy. Uneasy, due to these products being unlike anything I have ever worked with before. Not usually stuff I would gravitate towards or call "my style". Yet at the same time I was excited about trying something new. I tell ya, I had nothing to fear. I am in love with every single thing from this release!!! I feel as if I have stretched out the boundaries of my comfort zone and I can't wait to pull out these goodies to play with again!

First up, School Time and the new amazing color for the month, Harvest Gold... This set is loaded with fun images. Perfect for school related project but, that's not all these image can do! And this new color is gorgeous! It's such a warm and an inviting shade of yellow/gold. I'm loving this color combo as well: Harvest Gold, Aqua Mist, Pure Poppy, Dark Chocolate & Vintage Cream.

Stamped and trimmed the note sheet, punched holes, tied with Baker's Twine and embellish with a Harvest Gold ribbon tab. Ok, here's another new love of mine... Baker's Twine! It and I were made to work together! Lol! :)
Covered the card base with Library Ledger pattern paper and a cream cardstock strip, impressed with the new Book Prints Impression Plate. Finished the card off with an apple and a few buttons.
Next up, Library Ledger & Just The Ticket. Use the Library Ledger image, stamped in Aqua Mist, to create an adorable panel for this baby card. Stamped a sentiment using a couple of words from Night, Night Moon. Which pairs up perfectly with the sentiment on the ticket from Just The Ticket.
At first I was unsure as to how to use the tickets, but I quickly figured it out and had a blast while doing it. My most favorite way to use these cuties is, as little decorative tabs. Like the first two cards on this post.
Check out the super cute teddy bear Harvest Gold button, how perfect it is for a baby card!

Last but not lease...This card uses three of the newly release sets. The stunning Year Of Flowers: Larkspurs,
stamped in Plum Pudding and Spring Rain. Every summer we have a whole batch of these gorgeous flower shoot up, right under my kitchen window, in a gorgeous blue-violet and white flower color combo. I always look forward to them.

A sentiment from It's Official, another set filled with versatile and fun images and sentiments. Here's A Tip: I stamped the sentiment off to the side of the circle, to create and open white space, which helps set it apart from the stamped background.
Used the Mat Stack #3 image and die from All Booked Up. Trimmed off the top, turned it upside down and attached along the bottom edge.

And there you have it! All the supplies used are listed in the Papertrey Ink gallery.

Hope you all enjoyed the new goodies from yet another fabulous release! I'd love to hear what you are looking forward to receiving the most! Can't wait to see what you all create!

Have a wonderful day!
