Introducing For the Love of Grids

You may remember last April we release For the Love of Dots, this month we are releasing another set that I've wanted for awhile, For the Love of Grids. I wish you could see just how dirty my For the Love of Grid stamps already are (unfortunately dirty stamps = well loved around here).

For my first card I used two of the stamps. One is this great hatch looking grid. I also used it when I illustrated Look Up! Additions in the little banner stamps. It's the great texture on the gray. The other is the large diamond pattern I used on yesterday's card as well.


I also used the sentiment from Another Year in the flower along with May Arts Teal Twill.

Check out what the design team created!
 

 
Valerie used all three of the background stamps to create the background and her flowers. Isn't it so cute? She also used the Thanks from Look Up! Additions.
 Karen 
Karen used the classic grid set, and I love the effect. You can use the stamp a thousand different ways. She Chatterbox for her sentiment.
 
Isn't the background so fun? This set includes a larger dot to use inside this grid or where the small dot is (tomorrow I'll show this in the video). Dana also used Chatterbox.

I know you'll want to visit the design team's blogs for more details on their cards!

So what do you think of For the Love of Grids? Which pattern do you like the best?

We'll be back tomorrow with some more sneak peeks, and the set will go on sale at midnight tomorrow night!
