Sneak Peek: Get To The Point {Happy Birthday to you}

Welcome to the beginning of the sneak peeks for Get To The Point, my latest FreckledAndFun stamp set being released from Papertrey Ink.

I drive the same route EVERY day to preschool. I feel like I am in autopilot! Every day, I see the same truck sitting by a convenience store with a HUGE arrow made out of coffee beans. My lightbulb went off one day, thinking of all the fun designs I could create with arrows. You see arrows everywhere....from packaging to street signs. You emphasize your statement by pointing to it with an arrow! This set will allow you to create everything from scrapbook pages to cards and tags....

Get To The Point ($24 includes 43 images) and Get To The Point Sentiments ($5 includes 18 images to create a variety of sentiments to coordinate with the Get To The Point stamp set) is going to be available on May 15 from Papertrey Ink.

For this card, I had just wrapped a birthday present for Jamie (Sophie's friend) and had some leftover paper. It was so cute and girly and I really loved the pink, blue and yellow together. I needed to make a card to go with the present so I trimmed up the leftover wrapping paper and added a strip to the white card base. I found that the Hawaiian shores paper matched perfectly and a little scrap of the lemon tart fit well in my scalloped circle punch. I stamped the sentiments and arrow with Hibiscus ink and then stamped "to" with black ink. I had some fun velvet rick rack and had Sophia pick out buttons for the card. I threaded them with the rustic thread and attached them to the bottom of the card! Fun card with some recycled materials from my scrap area!

Stay tuned this week for more ideas with my new stamp set Get To The Point, which will be available for purchase on May 15!

There is so much inspiration to be found out there on the Papertrey Blogs today! Wait until you see what Nichole Heady has on her blog with her fun new Up, Up & Away set. And check out the same set on Betsy Veldman's blog! WOW! My fellow Papertrey Ink stamp designers Lisa Johnson, Heather Nichols, Melissa Bickford, Alli Miles and Dawn McVey all have peeks at their newest stamp sets as well! I am telling you - the eye candy will make you salivate with delight!
