New Beginnings

Happy New Year!  I'm looking forward to a year of fresh starts and hopeful that 2019 will be a year filled with exciting adventures, bountiful blessings and beautiful new beginnings!

One such new beginning is to share some big news...Our Daily Bread Designs is now Divinity Designs, LLC! They have re-branding because they are teaming up with a new partner.  You can read all about it HERE!

And other exciting news is that I'll be guest designing with Divinity Designs for the next few months...an exciting adventure!

Divinity Designs January Release is also here including two new product lines:  stencils and an embossing folder!  Today I'm featuring a few new items from the January Release.

For my first card, I cut navy cardstock using the new Half Shutter die and cut papers from the Americana Collection and Old Glory paper pads using the Half Shutter Layers dies (included with the Half Shutter die!)  The lovely apple images and sentiment are from the new Apple Branch stamp set.

For my next card, I used the new Flourishes Embossing Folder on dark olive green cardstock for the background. I used one of the Pierced Rectangle dies to cut a pattern from the Cozy Quilt Collection paper pad and cut mustard cardstock using one of the Circle Scalloped Rectangle dies for a layered backdrop.  The Apple Branch stamp makes a beautiful image and the sentiments are very pretty.

Stop on over to the Divinity Designs blog to see the entire release along with lots of inspiration from the Design Team!

Wishing you and yours the very best in 2019 filled with exciting adventures, bountiful blessings and beautiful new beginnings!
