LovelyNotes_BlogHopHello my friends!  Welcome to day #2 of our Blog Hop celebration for the Lovely Notes Stamp of Approval Collection.

If you are new here, WELCOME!  Be sure to scroll down to the bottom of this post for the nitty gritty details, how this works and links to the amazing blogs for this hop.
Amazing Butterflies 3

A few days ago, I introduced you to the Lovely Flowers and Banners Dies.  We designed the flower dies to cut out the Lovely Flowers stamps and while we were at it, we added a few layering pieces to this die set.  We have a large scallop banner die, a chevron banner die and a tiny scallop border.

The scallop banner can be used several ways (HINT: be sure to check out your next stop in the hop!) including making it longer.  I'll show you in the video!

These butterflies are such a perfect staple set for your stash and I know I'll be using them for years to come.  I love how they are all slightly different, but coordinate so well together at the same time.

Amazing Butterflies 2The tiny scallop trim is great for an accent on the side of the banner, or add it across the top.

The Chevron banner is really fun because it can be used with the flag end or the “arrow” end (is that what you would call it?).

WHAT IS the Stamp of Approval Lovely Notes Collection?

During release week of our Stamp of Approval Collections, we show you some of the products each day.  If you view all of my videos, you will see all of the products coming in that amazing little box of awesomeness.

Some of our stamping friends LOVE surprises.  Even if you've seen all the products, there's something to be said about waiting in anticipation of the mailman, having the box arrive on your portch, tearing it open and basking in the joy of seeing all those fabulous products together for the first time.

It’s kinda like Christmas!!!

For those of you that DON’T want a surprise, no problem!  You can watch all of my videos during the preview to see everything that will be in your darling little box when it arrives on your doorstep!

Here are direct links to the preview day videos:


All of the products shown in the videos above come in one darling little box (shown below) – that's TWO dies and SIX sets of stamps.

They are brand new products and will not be available for individual sale until late this fall.

Not only do you get them first, but you also get a FREE Project Guide PDF download!  You will also  pay (way) less than retail.

Win.  Win.  WIN!
