Welcome to Our Daily Bread Designs' January Release!

Welcome to Our Daily Bread Designs' January New Release Hop! 

This month we celebrate a new year and that often includes new resolutions.  Maybe your New Year's resolution includes spending more time creating beautiful paper crafts.  And to help you with that goal, Kelley and crew at Our Daily Bread Designs have some lovely new sets to help.  And they not only bring in the new, but they work with some of the old sets you may already have! 

AND you have a chance to get your hands on these or other ODBD stamps of your choosing!  Three winners will be randomly chosen from the comments left on the designers blogs to receive a $25 Gift Certificate to the ODBD Store, to be used toward the purchase of ODBD Stamps.  You have until January 2, 2013 at 9:00 p.m. EST to make your comments!  The Winners will be posted on the ODBD Blog on January 3rd, so be sure to check back there to see if you won!
 
So let's dive right in and see what this new release is all about and the projects I have to share...

Now for the projects I created this month, including a center step card and tent card....


For my center step card, I stamped the jar image and coordinating jar filler image on Copic compatible paper and went to work.  The sentiment may be found in an earlier release, To The Lovebirds.

And for my tent card I used the Fancy Foliage die to create my own "faux" lavender spray.  I stamped the Apothecary Jar image and sentiment (Lavender set) on Copic compatible paper and colored it.  I used an earlier die release, Circle Ornaments to create the circle and circular frame on this card. 

and the items I used...

Canning Jars Single


Canning Jars Die
 

Canning Jar Fillers


Apothecary Bottles


Apothecary Bottles Die


Lavender


and a few items from earlier releases...

Circle Ornaments Die


Fancy Foliage Die


Don't forget to leave the designers some love along the way!  After all, you could win a gift certificate to purchase your very own set but you have to enter to win!  And that means leaving a comment at each stop!  The ladies work so very hard to glorify our Savior and to bring you some of the most beautiful projects!  I know they cherish your comments!
