Practicing Creativity Release: Everyday Prints

Thanks for all the feedback on Rejoice! I really can't wait to see the many creations you all make with it. Now are you ready to see our other set for this month? This set was really inspired by Hatch Show Print.  If you're not familiar with them, you should check them out! I started with this idea of being able to combine different sentiments in a really cool frame, and it really involved into a project I just loved creating.

This set is super interactive so you'll want to check back tomorrow to see the Everyday Prints video!

It's hard to believe New Years is just around the corner, but again I've been so in love with colors and patterns I had to play with some of ours!
I used several sets along with Everyday Prints. I used the swirl and houndstooth from Retro Christmas Backgrounds and Look Up! for the banner. I used the frame from Everyday Prints, and several of the sentiments. All of the elements for Everyday Prints have a slight distressing. I just love the effect! And the sentiments don't have to be used in the frame! They are great on their own.
Are you ready to see what the design team made? They will really blow you away.

 Karen shows off how versatile the sentiments are from this set! I adore how she's used inks and some of my favorite ribbons from the store.

 I'm absolutely in love with this card. Isn't it just gorgeous? Of course that kraft colored ink on the Everyday Prints frame and sentiments just makes my heart beat faster! Paulina also used, Retro Christmas Backgrounds and Rejoice!

 Dana made this super sweet vintage card. Don't you love how great the frame is for layering other shapes and sentiments on! Dana also used Christmas Wonder to create that great pattern in the background. 


We've got one more day of sneak peeks and videos for you tomorrow, so make sure you check back for all of those! Both sets will go on sale tomorrow night, November 5 at 12:01 am!

And I'd love to give Everyday Prints away! Since this set is truly for everyday featuring "Thank You, Miss You, Happy New Year, Christmas Joy, and Love You" I'd love to hear your favorite type of card to make. I love making thank you cards, and love cards!

Also, don't forget about our Practicing Creativity Flickr group! It really makes my day to see what you make with our stamps!

With a full time teaching job and a full time family I love time to make ANY cards !!! However, I do seem curiously drawn to Thank-you cards - maybe I should be more expressing my gratitude more often ?!

Beautiful set - again!
