A New Year, New Release and Blog Hop at Our Daily Bread Designs!

Welcome to another fun release at Our Daily Bread Designs.  We have so many items to share including journaling stamps plus more dies!  I can't wait to show you a couple of projects I created using these new items.  But before we get started, you need to know we are having a blog hop.  And as we do most months, today three randomly selected winners will each receive a $25 gift certificate to the ODBD Store!  It can be used toward the purchase of ODBD Stamps found in the "ODBD stamps column" of the website just for commenting on the Design Team cards!  You have until January 2, 2015 at 9:00 p.m. EST to leave your comments on the Designers Blogs for a chance to win!  The Winners will be posted on the ODBD Blog on January 3rd, so be sure to check back there to see if you won!
 
But first you have to see some of these new items.  And if journaling hasn't caught your fancy yet and/or you don't feel comfortable stamping in a Bible...  there are MANY more ways to use them!  Check out all of the designers today to get some great ideas on how you can incorporate journaling stamps into your stash!
 
So here is my first project using ODBD's new Wishing Words stamp set...
 

I started with a soft cream card stock base, trimming two coordinating papers from the Blushing Rose Paper Collection and covering the seam with an ecru die cut from the Beautiful Borders Die set.  I stamped the sentiment (from the NEW Wishing Words set) on cream card stock and used the NEW Circles Die to cut and emboss it.  I added a hand crafted blossom (Paper Posies Die) with greenery from the beloved Fancy Foliage Die.
Here are the new items you see...

 

 and some old favorites...

  

 Now on to one of the new journaling stamps...
Each year I purchase a planner to keep all of my personal and work appointments straight.  I use a phone for this task as well but I still like to see things in "writing."  I usually purchase a planner which a reading plan for my Bible.  That way I am sure to read the entire Bible in a year...  I can mark off assigned readings as I go through the year...  

So I decided to pull out my 2016 planner...  go to July 4th and stamp this gem...  The Nation...
I used washi tape to mark the day as well and colored my images with twistable crayons...  I also added a bit of glitter glue to the stars...

No boring planner for me!  lol
 
So here's the journaling stamp used on this project...
 
 
 
and don't forget to check out all of the designers to play along with our hop AND get some fabulous ideas for using these stamps!  They aren't JUST for journaling!!!!

Lori, your card is beautiful. I love all the new stamps in this release. They put at risk my resolution to spend less on paper crafting this year and use some of the great stash that I already own :) Your card is beautiful and as I am especially interested in the Bible journalling verses, I love that you used yours in a planner. May God bless you this coming year.

Your card is so pretty, Lori! Love the pale peach flower & two color sentiment. Your planner is such a great idea & perfect for the Bible journaling stamps.

Pati said...

What a fun idea to use the journaling stamps in a planner!! I always seem to start out the year with a planner but it quickly gets forgotten just a few months (or weeks) in. I like to write things down too but have gotten lazier over the years with doing so since the phone is always with me, not my planner. I always have a few calenders laying around tho so you've given me ideas to add these stamps to my collection for making my own calenders!

TLady said...
