Clear Dollar Stamps February Sneak Peek Preview Day 1!!

I LOVE sneak peek days, don't you?!!! Today is the first day of our February previews, and the design team members have some fantastic sets to show you!

Remember, these sets will be available for purchase on February 1 at Clear Dollar Stamps.

Ok ... let's get on with the peeking, shall we?? :)

Oh, Hoppy Day, Hoppy Day!!! :) This little frog set is SO cute. I know that I'm going to use this set sooooo much!

Using the SVG files, I was able to cut the frog and the shadow, as well as the shape for the sentiment and it's shadow, with the Cricut. Isn't it exciting that we can purchase these SVGs?! No more cutting out the stamped shapes by hand! :) Excellent.

Sentimental Flowers is such a wonderfully versatile set. Along with the stamps, I used the SVG files to cut the flowers out. This set is so cute because the flowers have a cute little sentiments that can be used as stems. I masked part of the sentiment so that I could stamp part on the top line and part just under it. The little leaf stitch on my sewing machine couldn't fit this set any better. I couldn't resist adding it to the edges of the Raging River layer.

Bold Butterflies and the Butterfly die set ... oh my word. This set and the matching dies are so gorgeous! When I got my hands on them, I KNEW that I had to use them on a scrapbook page, and the page formed in my mind. This page turned out a little different than I planned, but most do! :) Butterflies remind me of the changes in our lives. I wanted to reflect that change with the page I was creating. I chose to think about the changes in my 5 year old daughter. The first picture was taken the day she was born and the other was taken just a few weeks ago. So many changes, but still my precious princess .... then and now.
