New product 2014 blog hop

The newest idea book is out and we are celebrating by doing what we do best, crafting with new products.  You should be coming from {Melinda Everitt}.  If not, don't worry.  It is a circle hop and you will come back around.  Next in this hop is  {Lalia Harris}.  If you are to get lost along the way, to can find a full list of blogs {here}.  And don't forget to check the new sotm {wild about love}

I am showcasing Ivy Lane paper packet and coordinating stamps.  

This layout is pattern 10 from Make It from Your Heart volume 1.  The stamps are from the Ivy Lane WOTG and Inspiration Flourishes. It is hard to tell, I can't get the pic any bigger without making it completely blurry, but I have three layers starting this layout.  First is the green B&T paper from the kit. Slightly smaller is Hollyhock cardstock, and then there is Colonial White which everything is stamped and placed on.  But that did mean i had to cut down the large paper and picture to make it fit.  I tried keeping it the same size, but it looked weird hanging off the edge.

This card is pattern 24 from the same book.  The stamp is from Inspiration Flourish.  I masked each section to get the multi colored image. The gold is washi tape.  I mounted it on white daisy cardstock and cut it to the size I needed.

This 3 x 3 card doesn't use a pattern.  There aren't many options when it comes to this size card.  I can't believe the quality of these photo. From my phone.  I can see the liquid glass that oozed a little past the zipper.

This is a repost, but since The Happy Couple is back in this idea book, I thought would reshow these.  As it sounds, this stamp is about marriage, but I wanted to show you how you can use a themed stamp outside the box.  These are the original photos.  If I knew where these got put during the move, I would have taken new photos.  They may contain old papers or stamps, but you can use new ones that also work with the theme.
