Introducing Dress Up Dolls

Welcome to Day Two of Papertrey's 9th anniversary celebration and new product release. Lots of fun announcements today over on Nichole's blog, so be sure to check those out!

Our first product announcement for this release is a new monthly series by Betsy Veldman called Dress Up Dolls. How sweet and special these are! This month we start off with Dress Up Dolls: Basics (boy doll, girl doll, hair options, basic clothing options, and more) as well as Dress Up Dolls: Easter.

The Dress Up Dolls products, along with all of the February release, will be available at 10 pm EST February 15 in the Papertrey Ink store.

In addition to the stamps and dies, magnet sheets and metal CD tins will also be available. The CD tins make darling storage tins for your paper doll collection. I've created a personalized doll set for today. It features bg gthe sweet girl doll on the front of the case. Everything is magnetic, so she and her accessories can all easily move inside the tin, too.

I stamped the Dress Up Dolls: Basics images onto White Adhesive Sheets, colored with Copics and Prismacolor pencils, and then die-cut using the Dress Up Dolls: Basics dies

I covered the front of the tin with some Confetti Toss Patterned Paper and some yellow Chicken Scratch Gingham Patterned Paper. The Sweet Blush Saddle Stitch Ribbon band easily slips off to open the case.

I used the Bookprint Alphabet dies to personalize the tin with the recipient's name. 

On the inside of the tin, there is room to store lots of extra clothes and accessories, as well as room to create a scene for the dolls. 

On the left side, I stamped some grass using an image from Garden Variety, stamped clothesline poles using images from Quilted: Summer), and lightly sponged an Aqua Mist sky. The extra clothes "hang" from the Raspberry Fizz Baker's Twine clothesline, the shoes are lined up below, and above the clothesline are some extra hair bows and hair styles. 

On the right side is where I arranged the two dolls, dressed them, and gave them some accessories. 

The pinwheel is from Quilted: Summer, and the flowers and hearts are from the Valentine Pin-Ups Make-It Market Mini Kit. I used the Blue Skies Cover Plate to die-cut the cloud panel on the right side.

As always, Betsy charms us with the details. I'm especially loving the "sweet heart" and "cool" typography on the t-shirt fronts!

All surfaces are magnetic, so the pieces stick anywhere.

Even the letters are magnetic, so that when the dolls are both inside the tin, the letters can be rearranged on the front.

This is going to be a super fun series. I'm excited to see what's coming next!
