I told you I had saved some of my favorite sets from this release to show off today.  I had so much fun with my Die-namics on this one.  I always like to see how many I can squeeze in on this post each month. I've got lots of them here and I LOVE how they all work together. I was realllllly excited to play with the new GIRLY GRAPHIC TEE STAMP AND DIE-NAMICS.  That's what's up first.

I really liked how the CIRCLE STAX SET 1 DIE-NAMICS fit so well into the DESIGNER LABEL 1 STAX DIE-NAMICS from my anniversary card earlier this week, so did it again today. I also tucked in a smaller RECTANGLE STAX SET 1 behind  the main image.

Teacher appreciation week is next week and I know I told you I was done with my cards, but when I counted all the ones I had, I realized I needed one more. I cut the Tee Die-namics twice, once with the canvas fabric and then again from whip cream cs.  I needed to add a little stability to my t-shirt, so I attached the fabric one to the cardstock one.

I stamped the sentiment in Really Rust ink and then added a custom, blinged flower to it.  I LOVE the MINI ROYAL ROSES, the smallest one is my favorite one. It's so small and cute and it was the perfect size to accent this Tee.

Here's a close up. Can you see the detail of the seams on the  Tee?  I dig that about the Die-namics.....emboss and cut at the same time.

Check out  some fun ways to do up the Tee with different sentiments! So fun!

 Here is the inside of the card. I used the sentiment from last months, à la mode-An Apple for Teacher, RECTANGLE STAX SET 1, and a bit of the SQUIGGLE BORDER DIE-NAMICS.

The other goodie I have to share today is a fun little altered notebook I did up. Who wouldn't love to have this in their purse to pull out to jot down  those lists, things to remember, a crafty inspiration on the go???  I'm still debating whether to keep this or give it away. 

This new à la mode, I've got Your Back, is sooo cool and way cute.  Those jumbo letters just scream to be paper pieced. I used more of the earthy tones from Pink Paislee's Prarie Hill and pieced up the U and R. 

The ALM was stamped on x-press blending cs and colored with copics. I added a touch of bling to her hair. I couldn't resist after I added the rhinestones to the SQUIGGLE BORDER DIE-NAMICS. There is a touch of scallops, too, thanks to the new MINI SCALLOP EDGE DIE-NAMICS. I really love those teeny tiny scallops.

Check out what I found out while trying to find just the right Die-namics to house my sentiment, fabulous. The mini wavy pennant die-namics fit perfectly down the side of the "R".  It's finished off with a button tied up with some Butter Cream twine.

Now hop on over to Kim's Blog....you'll find all you need to know about today's line up!
