September Sneak Peek Week Day 5

Welcome back to Day 5 of
 September Sneak Peek Week!!

We've been having lots of fun this week showing you the 
NEW holiday goodies, 
and the Girl Fridays have been ROCKing it, haven't they?

I love Christmas music!
Jingle Bells and Silver Bells are a couple of my favorites,
 but my all time favorite Christmas song in the WHOLE world is Carol of the Bells. 
I love how frenetic it gets, which to me embodies the rush of the holiday season. 
It starts off at a decent pace, then builds and builds and just when you're thinking it can't get any faster or stronger or prettier, it slows to an end...just like the holidays :)
So, my love for Christmas songs about bells was the inspiration for today's sneak peeks.

Introducing...
Sleigh Bells and Bell Tags Fri-Dies 


Lots and lots of fun greetings, most of which will fit neatly 
on the bell images. 


These pretty little bell tags will certainly dress up your cards and layouts, 
and will be so fun tied on to packages!


Let's see these babies in action, shall we?








So what do you think of Sleigh Bells and Bell Tag Fri-Dies?
They will be available on the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps website,
and in many of your favorite shops as well,

and be pretty fun all by itself too! 

See ya tomorrow!
Same time, same place :)

September Sneak Peek Week Day 4

Welcome back to Day 4 of 
September Sneak Peek Week!

I hope you've been enjoying the party so far!
Today we sneak a stamp set that is special to me.
 Please allow me to to indulge in a little story of how this set came to be...

Last year, I was working...unsuccessfully... on a stamp set that I really wanted to do.
It was one of those times when what I had in my head just wasn't coming to life how I wanted it to. 
I was frustrated!
Then...Girl Friday Kelly created a fabulous project that just about broke my jaw.
It completely inspired me!!!
The light bulb went off, my hand smacked my forehead, there was a rainbow, fireworks, an eclipse and I'm pretty sure glitter fell from the sky too...ok, just work with me here *wink*

In any event, 
the missing link was found, and I was back on track.
*insert applause*

Once the inspiration was well directed, I settled into design mode. 
It was all coming together but something...I didn't know exactly what...was missing.
 On a fishing trip with my guys this summer, surrounded by gorgeous pine trees, I was feeling happy and relaxed, so I let my mind go. 
It wandered, it explored, it went blank...and then it focused. 
That's when I wrote the poem that finished this set.

It was nearly a year in the making, but I'm so thrilled to introduce...
Pinecones


A lovely set of pinecones and sprigs for your creative delight.
 Use the original poem as a focal point or background, and finish off your design with a pretty sentiment. 

It's a really pretty set, but just wait til you see what it does!









So what do you think of Pinecones?
It will be available on the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps website,
and in many of your favorite shops as well, 
on Saturday!

We will be back tomorrow morning with another great stamp that also had a coordinating Fri-Dies set!
Do you like bells???

See ya tomorrow!
Same time, same place :)

September Sneak Peek Week Day 3

Welcome back to Day 3 of our 
September Sneak Peek Week!

Does anyone remember the movie Must Love Dogs? 
 I am a BIG John Cusack fan! 
While today's sneak peek has nothing to do with him, 
or even dogs for that matter, 
its title was inspired by the movie's title since I was watching it for probably the 20th time 
while creating this happy little stamp set. 

If you love snowflakes, then you simply must love this set! 

Introducing...
Must Love Snowflakes

If you love snowflakes, then you simply must love this set!
 Elegant snowflakes will create a flurry of excitement when paired with any of these 6 lovely sentiments.

Let's see this beauty in action, shall we?
Each of the Girl Fridays has created pure delight with this set.
Please be sure to visit their blogs to get details about their creations and leave them some love :)
