Designing with Papertrey

Hello Dear Bloggers!
It's time to wish Papertrey Ink a super HAPPY ANNIVERSARY! It has been 6 PACKED years of creative awesomeness.  I feel so blessed to be returning again as a designer. It has been such a thrilling experience to connect with crafters and see all that you create with my designs. It's such a pleasure and an honor!

Well the anniversary festivities are underway, and Nichole Heady has posted a fabulous download of printable Designer Freebies for you to enjoy!  You will note that my freebie coordinates with my recent stamp release "Frilly Flowers" and the dies as well. SO, that makes life fun, doesn't it!? Just print, and grab your DIES from the Frilly Flower set and have at it! It would be so fun to really couple all these images with the stamps and freebie together, too!
Check out the pictures to see how I used my freebie. 
 First off, I love to write. Love, love, love it. I have probably 30-40 journals filled with thoughts, dreams, hopes, creative ideas, scriptures that touched my heart, inspiration from speakers or books I am reading or the world around me.  A journal is like a precious friend... and I never leave home without it.    For me, picking out a fun journal is like finding the perfect shoes or purse... because I know I will live with this journal for several months. So I love having journals with colorful flair, and where better to find that then Vera Bradley??
 Vera Bradley offers some great different journals... spiral bound, large, small, and in every pattern you could imagine.

 So, I thought these journals would be a perfect and fun little gift to bless someone with. This project proves how a quick and simple addition can make a gift feel so personal. It is very helpful that Vera's colors are so fashion savvy, along with Papertrey's, because of course it was easy to find a "Perfect Match". ;)

 This journal is the Lemon Parfait color. (I am crazy about YELLOW lately!!) I printed my freebie on the PTI Hawaiian Shores, used my dies my Frilly Flowers Dies, threw in a little bling and glitter and... TA DA!!! A fabulous gift for a precious friend.

The "Hello Dahlia" journal matches the PTI Simply Chartreuse and Berry Sorbet colors perfectly!

 Be sure to stop by Nichole's blog to download your freebie and enjoy all the PTI Anniversary fun!

I look forward to a fantastic new year with PTI and I know you are too! Let the countdowns begin!!
Sending love and smiles,

P.S. I just realized that Nichole had to resize the image to fit her download page. So, I made a jpeg for you to use. It is sized for an 8.5x11 letter size paper. So, just copy and paste and fit it cover the whole page and the sizing should be correct for you to print, die cut, and create! I also added some other sentiments for fun and a blank one so you can insert your own stamps if you like. Have a blast!!!
