Papertrey January Release Projects...

It's time for the January Papertrey release. The entire Papertrey Design Team will have their projects up for viewing today. Please see my left sidebar for links to all the designers' blogs.

This month will be the last of the series for the Flower Fusion sets and dies. I used Flower Fusion #12 and it's coordinating flower die to create some fun additions for my Friendship Jar set. Such a happy little flower with the plaid markings. I also used Handmade Hodgepodge for the oval labels combined with a sentiment from Friendship Jar. It was also a fun discovery to find that the new Limitless layers 2.25" Oval dies work perfectly with Borders and Corners: Oval.
I went for a bright and cheery look so I could get a good start on my springtime stash of cards.
Next up I used Celebrations to create a fun happy birthday sentiment on a card front. The felt flower was cut from the new Kraft felt using the Flower Fusion #12 die. It's tied with a button and chocolate twine.

For the rest of my cards today I created a giant sheet of hand stamped patterned paper using images from the Mat Stack 5 Collection. I combined this patterned paper with lots of other images being released this month for a total mixy matchy stamping session. Here I paired the patterned paper with Flower Fusion #12 and Script Sentiments + some of the new patterned paper
Here used a punched image from Tag-its #12. This is also the last of the sets from this series too. Die cut patterned paper and felt finish off the bottom of the card.
This colorful set of card really shows up the handmade patterned paper I made + some more of the adorable flowers from Flower Fusion #12. You'll also notice that on most of these cards I used a little snippet made from Handmade Hodgepodge....not just for the back of your cards.
Here I mixed up some oval shapes from the new oval dies with an older stamp set and the oval stamps. A wadding of shimmery thread is behind both tags.
And finally a few more thank you cards.....can you tell I need to send out Christmas thank you's still? On the top card you get a good glimpse of the new Kraft ribbon layered with twine and buttons. On the bottom I used a big piece of the Dearest Jane patterned paper. I used a large tag to stamp my Handmade Hodgepodge sentiment. I love this on the front of my projects.
I hope you enjoy my projects today. I know a lot of you have been missing my Papertrey creations. I'll be sure to post them as I create. Be sure to visit Nichole's blog as she'll have a fun post up today too. Thanks for stopping by!

You never cease to amaze us with your beautiful designs! Wadding is my new favorite word and technique!!I have seen Rahel Menig use it on alot of her Christmas creations and loved it. Was also curious to know if you participate in Ali's "one little word" project? I have chosen NEXT as my word this year-do you have one?
