The excitement has been building for the past two days and now the time has FINALLY arrived!
WELCOME to the September Release and Reveal Blog Hop at Peachy Keen Stamps!
You should have arrived here from Gigi McKellips's blog, if you’re hopping along in the set order, but if you just happened upon this post then you can go back to the beginning at The Peachy Keen Stamps Blog and start from there so you don’t miss any wonderful project.
This All Occasion release brings wonderful images for projects centered around a birthday theme, as well as some great stamps that pair up perfectly with stamps that have been released previously this year. I can see the Birch Background stamp used with our camping themed release, a rustic Christmas project, Halloween, masculine “guy” cards and so, so much more! Smile Eagle goes amazingly well with the Birch Background, too, and can’t us just see that little fella used for some AWESOME patriotic projects? There’s the Haunted A2 Background, which comes just in time to make some quick and easy Halloween projects, OR pair it up with last month’s release or ANY of our Halloween themed stamps for more versatility. The PKSC-33 Stamp of the Month, Ballerina Bear, and the Sentiments for the September 2014 Release are fabulous “go to” sets for any age! And last but certainly not least are the Variety Face Assortments. It wouldn’t be a PKS release without faces, and these are some of the cutest and most versatile yet! Turn a simple project into something SUPER SPECTACULAR just by adding an adorable Peachy Keen Face! These are must haves, for sure!!
I created a layout using the new heart balloons from PKS-33 September SOTM Kit and PK-1426 Ballet Bear.
How adorable are these cute little ballerina bears?!! I thought they would go perfectly with this layout of my daughter on the day she was born! She had danced her way into our hearts the moment we found out we were expecting her!
I paper pieced each one using two shades of pink, one cream, and one white card stock. I added Stickles to their tutus and their hats. I colored their eyes in with Copic markers and chalked their cheeks.
I stamped and paper pieced the balloons as well. I added sewing string to the balloons and tied them to each bear.
I used My Creative Time's Trio Stitched Banner Dies to added the fun sentiment from the Ballet Bear set to each picture. I used a die from Jaded Blossom to add the sentiment to her birth info. I just covered up the info for the picture so it wasn't shared for the whole world to see.
For the title I used My Creative Time's Uppercase and Lowercase Fun Dies. I dotted the "I" with the little star from the wand.
I embellished the layout with My Creative Time's Stitched Banner dies, Stitched Doily, and the little butterfly. I added Stickles to the butterfly and pearls.
So thankful that Kathy created these bears and sentiments to help me create this layout!
