A little secret..........



I have been keeping a bit of news for a while and finally get to share it with you!!!  I've been asked by the sweet and talented Laura Pryor from Lil' Inker Designs to join her FIRST Design Team!!!  Yep, I'm a Lil' Inker Designer and I couldn't be more excited!!!  I have been following Laura and her stamps for many months now and can't wait for this new venture.  Did I mention JUST stamps?  No, she has coordinating dies to match!  If you know me at all, I LOVE coordinating products! 



I have used the Pinwheel Die to create a fabulous accent to a plain kraft bag.  I LOVE using bags to do my "wrapping" and the Pinwheel die will be just the thing to jazz up the packaging!  I've also used the Sentiment Flags for an added accent!  Here is a close-up photo:



Here is what the pinwheel die looks like........so easy to use!  I've cut 7 of these for my accent above but you can make the pinwheel with more or less.  Just depends on how "full" you want it to be!



Have you been following Laura's blog this week?  Laura has put together an amazing DT lineup.  Make sure to keep visiting her blog..........there are more DT introductions in the next few days!  Our first group post is August 8th and we're kicking it off with a Blog Hop!
