Hey there! I’m back today with another October teaser. Today we’re introducing our new illustrator, Laina Lamb!
I had the very great pleasure of meeting Laina at CHA this past summer and I can attest to the fact that she is as sweet as she is talented—and that’s a lot :)

I also want to remind you that we have a new color debuting this month: Nightshift Blue. Cardstock, felt, buttons, and ribbon to match. It’s a gorgeous navy blue and sure to become a staple in your stamping
Laina’s focus is mostly on scrapbooking but her new stamps and dies lend themselves perfectly to card making, too, which makes me very happy since I don’t scrap.
I’m using both of her new sets on today’s Christmas card: Journal It - Top Ten and Document It - December, as well as one of her new Die-namics dies, Accent It - Flags & Tags.
So, first of all I stamped the notebook page image from Journal It – Top Ten onto some patterned paper and cut the top with my Die-namics Notebook Edge die. Then I stamped the numbers down the side—it’s so cool, they’re all on one stamp so they line up perfectly! Swoon! OK, so THEN, I stamped some things on my list from Document It – December. I cut a flag from Accent It – Flags & Tags and stamped “Making a List”, popped that up on foam and then the whole thing up on foam on the card base. Then I embellished it with a “poinsettia” using my Die-namics Upsy Daisy die. You can also see a Die-namics Fishtail Flags Layers STAX peeking out from under the list element. YES! Layers for Fishtail Flags! Love.
Here’s the inside of my card with a sentiment from an old standby, Clearly Sentimental About Christmas.
Here are the Die-namics dies I used on this card:
