Avery Elle October/November Blog Hop

Click here to go to my STAMPtember post!


Good morning!!!  It's Avery Elle Blog Hop day and I'm sharing some new stamps and dies I designed for the October/November release:)  My new designs are add-ons to the Fill in the Blank stamps and dies from the last release.  The new Holiday Fill in the Blank stamps and Holiday Fill in the Blanks dies let you make all kinds of quick and fun holiday cards:)  Here's a look at the full sets (they are already up on the Avery Elle site by the way;). 


Every year I try to send handmade Christmas cards, but it's difficult striking a balance between keeping it handmade and not taking 3 months to finish your holiday cards;)  So each year I try to come up with something quick and easy to replicate but still a bit different than what you'd see at the local Hallmark.  This time I went modern and CAS with a gray (Fog) card stock base.  I glammed it up a bit with a strip of silver along the left side.  The rest is just a matter of die cut and filling in the blanks:)  Maybe this year, I'll actually be able to get my cards done on time!   


Thank you for stopping by today!  I do hope you stop by all the other Avery Elle blog hoppers!  This release is just so awesome!  Here's the blog line up if you've just started...

  50. In case you are a new dealer, one example is, tucking a distinctive dark plastic material small
    Plastic business cards or even a unique crystal clear plastic material cards to the bag with all your buyer's acquire is really a low-cost, low-tech strategy to create visitors and also duplicate small business.
