Introducing Another Year

You all guessed right! To celebrate our one year anniversary the first set this month is an all-birthday stamp set. If you're anything like me the majority of the cards you actually use are thank you and birthday cards! I really never have enough.

Here's one of the cards I made with the set:

This set has one large background made up of number 1-100. I love it just for a background, but it really has so many more uses with the sentiments included in the set. I also am giving you a little peek at tomorrow's stamp set. Can you find it?
I also used our aqua grosgrain and satin ribbon. I love that stuff.

I also have video for you today with Another Year. I know you'll want to see exactly how this set works!

You can also view it on YouTube here.

And now the design team has been hard at work creating some super cute cards using Another Year. Each member has made two cards showing how this set can really be used for any birthday!

 
 
Karen shows off just how versatile this set is with a neutral card and a kids card. Did you notice how great the numbers look behind her little scene? It's just a detail that I love! 

 
Aren't these so cute? Paulina shows off a super girlie teen card and a masculine card. Don't you just love that color combo? I do! 



 
Dana rocks both of these cards. She highlights specific birthdays, and I just love the custom attention that brings to both cards. Don't you just love all the possibilities with the "...again" sentiment?

Go check out these girl's blogs for more details on all their fabulous cards! 

Another Year will be available January 6 at 12:01am! 

Make sure you check back tomorrow where we'll show you sneak peeks from our other set that's releasing this month! It's sure to make your heart beat a little faster (hint hint).

Before you leave, leave a comment and we'll be giving away Another Year. And since it is "Another Year" I'd love to hear what you're excited about in 2011!

Oh Courtney. I am in love with this set. I haven't seen anything like it. The number background is genius! 2011 is a new year, but a year that starts work ups for my husband followed by a deployment. I am excited about the time we will have to spend together before he leaves!

Love the set, especially the background!!! I'm excited about my son proposing to his girlfriend of 3-yrs. He designed and ordered the ring from Zales, and is now waiting for it to arrive. I'm so happy for him and I'm looking forward to the big day!

What a wonderful idea for a birthday or any celebration background.
I am looking forward to a trip to Hawaii, my niece's wedding, my parents' 60th wedding anniversary, and my sons' graduation from college.

I am new to your sight but already love what I see.
