New Custom Die Collections - Sneak Peeks!

I am super excited to share with you these photos of my newest custom die cut collections.

The first one is the Carriage Collection. I just love carriages. They are so romantic and vintage! I created this die because carriages just look so pretty decked out in flowers and trims, especially tassel trim. And, I really wasn't able to find a carriage die, so I made one of my own. The design is  inspired by Marie Antoinette's carriage. I'm currently working on a carriage mini album featuring Websters Pages Western Romance, totally beautiful paper, and always gorgeous I Am Roses flowers. What a lovely and perfect combination! DT member Jade from Jaded Studios is creating a carriage mini album design featuring the super rich Prima Printery paper collection. This versatile die would work great for  Parisian or Victorian themes, a princess-themed project, a Southern mini, and of course love — first dates, valentines, engagements, weddings, anniversaries (insert hopeless dopey sigh here).  :)

This is a photo of my new Kitchen Collection, and it was a lot of fun creating this die cut set. It features a retro stove with a little teapot that's sized perfectly to sit on top. Plus there's a decorative retro-inspired utensil rack and mini utensils to display on it, including a spatula, whisk, rolling pin and frying pan. Super cute collection! It would be great to use to create a recipe book with kitchen-themed papers, or to create holiday-themed recipe books for Thanksgiving or Christmas. Can't you just smell the pumpkin pie baking? LOL. Now, I'm hungry.
