Papertrey December Release in Review

It's Release Day at Papertrey Ink! One more look at some of the new products coming to the store tonight at 10 pm!

I adore the fitness-themed products we have this month! I used one of the Traveler's Journal Page Blanks booklets to make a fitness notebook. I'm not sure yet if I'll use it as an exercise log or as more of a fitness/wellness journal, but either way, I love it! I decorated the cover with Nichole's She Moves stamps and dies, as well as Lizzie's Making Strides stamps.

On the first page, I added a simple motivational message from Stroke Speak, as well as a trio of fitness die-cuts in some of my favorite colors: Green Parakeet, Tropical Teal, and Dark Indigo.

The next two pages are where the journaling or fitness log will start. At the top of the left page, I stamped a Making Strides sentiment onto a Fabulous Frames die cut, and along the bottom I stamped fitness icons with Moments Inked: Active Symbols images.

Stamps: She Moves, Making Strides, Moments Inked: Active Symbols

Dies: She Moves, Fabulous Frames, Sketched Stars

Ink: Green Parakeet, Tropical Teal, Enchanted Evening, Dark Indigo

Paper: Traveler's Journal Page Blanks; Green Parakeet, Tropical Teal, Dark Indigo card stock

Other: jute string, silver sequins, mini clip

Next is a notecard featuring the new Lilac Grace card stock and a gorgeous floral image from Nichole's Fresh Bouquet.

I watercolored the flowers using a combination of Papertrey inks and Zig Clean Color brush markers.

I love the sentiments in Fresh Bouquet. Beautiful messages of hope and encouragement, and the script font is gorgeous.

Stamps: Fresh Bouquet

Dies: Fresh Bouquet, Noted: Scalloped Square

Ink: Versafine Onyx Black; Papertrey New Leaf, Lilac Grace, Aqua Mist, Blueberry Sky, Ripe Avocado, Amethyst Allure

Paper: Stamper's Select White and Lilac Grace card stock; watercolor paper

I've saved my personal favorite for last. I stamped these swans and their scene with Maile's Swan'sational. The sentiment was done with the Inspired: Love stamps and dies.

I lightly sponged the bottom corner with Aqua Mist, then arranged the cattails and lily pads before tucking in the elegant swans.

I brushed the word die-cut with a clear Wink of Stella for a subtle shimmer (hard to see in the photos).

Stamps: Swan'sational, Inspired: Love

Dies: Swan'sational, Inspired: Love
