ODBD April New Release Blog Hop!!
Happy April 1st, everyone! Hope you make it through the day without any April Fool's tricks!!! No tricks around here.....it's time for the Our Daily Bread designs April New Release Blog Hop....yay!!!! Make sure you check out the New Release post HERE to see all of the new sets, plus a new custom cutting die!!! For my sample today, I have used a fabulous new set, designed by our DT sister, Dawn Lusk, called "Bird and Butterfly Labels". There are four images in this set, which all coordinate with the Spellbinders Labels 18 dies....how cool is that? The designer paper is Memory Box "Frond", the satin ribbon is from Michael's and was tied with a Bow Easy. The cardstock is SU Early Espresso (Brown), the pearls are Zva Creative, and there are several layers of my fave "Pearl" Glimmer Mist. The "Mother" sentiment is from another new April new release, "Mother's Day". Here is a close up which shows off the shimmer from the "Pearl" Glimmer Mist over the panel which was stamped in Stazon Timber Brown and colored with a sponge dauber and Certainly Celery ink pad! My second project was featured on the Our Daily Bread designs blog on Thursday for a "Time With" segment....this time it was my turn! Some of you have already seen the transformation of the $2.50 birdhouse from Target, but if you would like to see the before & afters plus more views, please check out this post. I wanted to share it here today since I used three new ODBD sets on it, "Bird Border and Corners", "Mother's Day", and "Bird and Butterfly Labels". Now, the moment you've been waiting for......on with the Blog Hop!! All of the details and the complete hop order are listed HERE on the ODBD blog! If you have hopped here from Debi's blog (isn't her sample amazing?!), you are in the right place!
