I had a new layout go up in the Two Peas Gallery this past week.
Remember way back when when I shared some product pics HERE for butterfly dies and Dear Lizzy Fabric paper, etc.? Yeah, me neither. But that's because I have a short memory these days.
Anyhoo, I shared a sneak peek of this page and now here it is in it's entirety:
I die cut the butterflies from the Dear Lizzy Fabric papers using the Bigz Beautiful Butterflies Steel Rule Die (Exclusive to Stampin' Up for Sizzix). I love how steel rule dies can cut through thicker mediums, like this fabric paper.
I printed my journaling on vellum and used it as an overlay on the pink woodgrain patterned paper.

I like to share what I find out and about on the internet. Things that I actually love myself.
Here's what I've found for you this weekend:
On September 1st, not only is Whiff of Joy releasing some fabulous new Halloween and Christmas stamps but also a 6x6 coordinating paper pad and some thin metal dies that work with the leading manual die cutting systems: Cuttlebug, Big Shot, Spellbinder's Wizard, etc.
I believe there will be 3 dies revealed on the 1st of the month: a tag, pennants & grass.
I love how die cutting works so perfectly with stamping. I am super excited about these latest additions!
You can see the tag above in use on Katharina's blog HERE.
Katharina is giving away the above stamp set (another new set for the September 1st release) HERE.
For all you nativity collectors and fans this set is a must. I have a small collection of nativities myself. Some of my most favorite Christmas decorations to put out each season. My mother in law has an amazing collection of nativities that she keeps out year round.
This remind me: I really should take photos of them this year.
Kerri Bradford has another amazing Friday FREEBIE on her blog HERE.
I love this shape.
Labels are so extremely versatile. From everything to adding journaling to a scrapbook page to die cutting smaller and stamping a greeting on a card, labels do it all. Imagine cutting this from vinyl and adhering to your wall or a frame with your family name or a quote inside. So fun!
Studio Calico's September Kit Back 40 is now available HERE.
I got mine ordered, did you?
I'll tell you what I love about kit scrapbooking:
1. The guesswork of picking items that match is taken out of the equation for me.
2. Everything comes to my house in a tidy and cool packaging.
3. SC has add-on kits with even more coordinating products and fun items to scrap with.
4. The SC Design Team provides loads of inspiration and ideas each month.
5. Did I mention that it saves me time in choosing coordinating products? I love that. Life is so busy that anything that saves me time is awesome.
Did you see that darling little ruler stamp in the kit? Um, yeah. LOVE.
