Your Next Stamp January New Release Blog Hop!


Hello!  Welcome to the Your Next Stamp January New Release Blog Hop!  We are so excited about the hop today because this release is HUGE!  We have had a blast playing with all of the cuteness, and we know you will too!  We are also introducing another new illustrator to the YNS family~Angie Blom!  I think we all fell in love with her new Insta Love Set which totally rocks!

The hop starts HERE on Thanh's Blog, and hopefully you arrived here from Dana's Blog.

We have 3 prizes hidden along the hop!  Just make sure you leave a comment on all of the DT blogs for your chance to win an amazing new release prize pack!!!  Winners will be announced On the Your Next Stamp Blog on January 28th!  Onto my projects: 



First up we have my FAVORITE new image from the release~Mandi!  EEK, isn't she adorable!!!  I just had to use her to make a Valentine for my sweet Avery:)  I also used the new Fishtail Banner Dies!!!  YAY!  Isn't it so nice when a company has everything you want. Now you can order these adorable stamps AND get some of the most popular dies on the market right now!  The sentiment comes from another new set Cute Foodies.  I just love all the sentiments in this set, and the food is pretty cute too:)  Here is a close up of Mandi:


The layout is the Deconstructed Sketch #85.  Next up I have some fun Valentine treats using the fabulous new Lollipop Cover Die!  I am super excited about this die!  So excited that I just couldn't stop making these fun treats for Avery's gymnastic team!  I still need to make some for Carson's class, but I have a different idea that I'm hoping will pan out...


These were sooooo easy to make!  I just used the new Fishtail Banner Dies, stamped a sentiment from the Cute Foodies set once again, and added a heart that I cut with the YNS Whatnots Seasons Set One!  Here's a close up:


and a peek at the inside.  These fit the Valentine heart lollipops just perfectly!
