I wanted to start first with saying good-bye to Deb Saaranen. My most heartfelt thank you to Deb for all her design work, creating beautiful cards over the (almost) 4 years she has been on the ODBD teams. Deb is moving and with so much going on she needs to step down. She will be missed by all of us!!
To inspire you, I will be posting all of the Design Teams cards and links to their blogs below. One winner will be chosen from one of the designers blog comments to receive a $50 Gift Certificate to the ODBD Store!! You have until August 3, 2013 at 9:00 p.m. EST to make your comments!
This month, we are so excited about our garden themed stamps and dies!! The ODBD artists and graphic designers really outdid themselves this month, as you shall see! In my life prior to owning ODBD when I had more time, I loved canning dill pickles and putting up strawberry jam and cling peaches. I would even buy tons of sweet corn in August and freeze it to eat all winter. Yummo! Summer is my favorite season since we have all the delicious garden foods and all the colorful flower gardens! I love it so much I even named my daughter "Summer"!
Canning jars are such a favorite item by most everybody!! Either stamped with an inside verse or filled with pickles or fruit, I am sure you will find it very versatile. To make it even fun, we have Canning Jar dies to make the task of cutting out the canning jar stamps so much easier!
Another staple of a summertime garden is some glorious pickles!! Don't you just love biting into a nice crisp dill pickle or enjoying a sweet pickle on a grilled hamburger! MMMMmm!
Another fun idea we have for you is the Garden Mini Set and Garden Sentiments! These sets work well with our Apron & Tools Dies and Recipe & Tags Dies. Gifting a loved one with a pie, jam, pickles or gift bag, and including the recipe is such a great idea. Include a stamped tag to tie onto the gift!
I had some extra verses I had not used so I wanted to include them in a set. I saw this cute idea for a shovel on Pinterest and it became a cute mini set!
Last but CERTAINLY not least is the answer to all those flourish and leaf die cuts we all love to add to our cards!! We even have an evergreen branch and pinecone! I think Michelle Laycock did an awesome job on this set. I know you are going to reach for these dies time and time again!!
