As you noticed by the title--Shapes by Design, I decided to use the set in a less traditional way. The set was originally created for versatility in addition to being genderless. Shapes by Design is a perfect set to create more masculine cards and yet at the same time can have a delicate feminine side to it as well. I decided to use the square blocks as flower stems. I carefully stamped the image over the textured surface to give it a real outdoors look.

If you are visiting today for the first time from Nichole's blog I just want to personally welcome you! Thanks for stopping by. As you are aware, today marks the first day counting down to sneak peaks. So what can I tell you about the set? There's variety, there's a mixture of fonts, there's a play on words...and for the first time you get to see some of my handwriting. Yup. That's a big step for me. I am very self conscious about that ;)
Make sure to join me from July 10-15th for daily projects and cards showcasing the set, which will be available for purchase July 15th through Papertrey Ink.
One last note, if you have a request for a particular set to be showcased for the flashback series PLEASE either post at the forum or leave me a message here :)
Thanks again for visiting. I look forward to hearing from you.
