I've got two new items available in the shop this week. First up is Quote Me, a simple set of speech-bubble shaped quotes about all kinds of topics. There are 10 quotations included, and they come in two versions: a black speech bubble with white print, and the same speech bubble with the print erased, leaving the negative space behind, so that you can "stamp" them onto cardstocks (kraft looks GREAT!) or photos.
Melanie also created a second page, using the Be You bundled kit:
The second product is a really flexible set of painted mask templates called Painterlays. These templates come in four designs: squares, circles, triangles, and the oh-so-trendy hexagons. There's a painted layer, which can be recolored (I'd recommend using this tutorial, steps 1-6), as well as an outline layer. They can be used separately, or together. In addition, you can add patterned paper inside the shapes for extra punch. The creative uses for this product are really unlimited, if you ask me.
Claudia played around with them a couple of different ways; she clipped a chevron patterned paper to the circles, and then added the hand-drawn outlines to a second piece of patterned paper behind the clipped circles (everything is from the Be You kit):
Jen created an awesome look at the many faces of one of her adorable boys by clipping a variety of photos and papers to the squares on one of the Painterlays -- the result is awesome:
